This scene is so important for the viewers to see this relationship developing! Whoever is doing the edits needs to hand the scissors over to someone else. This is only one minute and thirty seconds. I just looked back at the episode and easily found that much time by snipping a few bits from Tony/Chad and Kristen's blathering. Another option is to shorten the scene-ending shots, where we see a character reaction. Especially the ones where there is next to zero expression change. Like the very first one when Tripp says "That was a disaster." They cut to Roman for two full seconds and all he does is stare then move his head up. Total waste of time! It would have played better too, going from Tripp straight to Alli. Or they could dub over the shot with the beginning dialog of the next scene.
