I agree Veruka. Brooke was dressed for a baby shower or a ladies lunch, not for moving. Maybe I'm just a tomboy, but I've always taken a much more "active" role in my own moving projects and those of my friends than to dress up pretty and wait for others to come move everything for me. Heck, last year I helped move a friend of mine and her school-aged daughter from their 1 bedroom apartment to a two bedroom apartment in the same building (but a different floor) and we accomplished the entire move in a couple of hours (yes, beds, dressers, a desk, computer and couch, etc.) with the help of a couple friends and the use of one furniture dolly and a couple grocery carts.
I think "they're too self-absorbed" is exactly right. Good lord, how could any of them even notice Brian when they are too busy doing whatever the hell is most important to them all the time. It's a shame, as the concept of a single guy living in a coupled-up world could make an interesting show.
