I'm not sure if Jeff missed them because he values their friendship, though, or that it strokes his ego knowing he can solve all of the "children's" little problems.

Only if we trust that Jeff was lying to the group (or deluding himself). Here's what he said:

“It might not shock you guys to hear the real reason we had a fight today. It wasn’t about the Barenaked Ladies, although I do have some unresolved issues there. Caring about a person can be scary. Caring about six people can be a horrifying, embarrassing nightmare. At least for me. But if I can’t say it today, when can I say it? I love you guys. Oh and Pierce, take it from an expert. These knuckleheads are right outside your heart. Let them in. Before it’s too late.”
Travel's fatal to prejudice, bigotry, narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things can't be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's life.
