RomCom decides to head out for a night on the town with Latoya and Swifty. Grandpa tells her to have fun and tells us that her going out without him doesn’t bother him “one bit.” (Remember this later.) On the boat, we learn that RomCom curled her hair four times because it loses the curl so fast. I’ll bet THAT never happens to Katherine Heigl. Anyway, the three of them dance the night away and have a grand old time while Grandpa…
… may or may not be learning to become an actual pirate. It would explain the hat, at least.
RomCom comments on how much fun she had with Toya and Swift, as if she can’t believe it. Did she just meet Latoya tonight? It’s quite refreshing to see her letting loose, having fun, and enjoying the company of actually enjoyable people.
So naturally, this must instantly be ruined. RomCom opens the door to Grandpa’s room, where he’s already in bed, and asks if she can talk to him. “Wow, you look drunk,” comes the reply. She immediately turns around and walks away, so Grandpa puts on his pirate hat to follow her. He says he’d rather talk to her when she’s sober, but she insists she isn’t drunk. Has she performed the back flip test yet? I thought that was the way these things were decided in her world.
Grandpa follows her for a minute, but gives up when she gets a pillow and blanket and… goes outside to sleep? Okay, then. Grandpa tells the other roomies, who are clearly beyond sick of this middle school bullshit, that they haven’t slept in the same bed for two whole nights now after their life-altering conversation about slowing things down. Hey, how far along is Chelsea, douchetard?
He goes on to say that it’s none of their business, but he’s just letting them know that this is his way of handling things maturely. He knows they might not agree with his situation, but RomCom is welcome to stop talking to him anytime she wants.
Speaking of someone who is welcome to stop talking anytime…
Mo’Rum tells us she thinks Gramps is icky and doesn’t respect women. She goes outside to talk to RomCom, who apparently just wanted to sneak in and give Grandpa a hug goodnight. When something that simple turns into this much drama, maybe it’s time to take a breather? Mo’Rum is sad to have missed out on the shenanigans, and RomCom says before her inability to hug Grandpa without drama ruined her night, it was the best one she’s had since they arrived.
Surely there is no discernable pattern here that would allow her to have more good, drama-free nights.
Mo’Rum tells her not to let someone ruin her night, but RomCom says it’s already gone. Mo’Rum tries again to tell her not to let Grandpa treat her like that, but we’ve all been in that situation and we all know it’s like talking to a brick wall. Mo’Rum gives up, and gives a defeated “girl power” before heading back into the house.
