The next morning, while Gramps and RomCom sit silently eating breakfast, Mo’Rum and Latoya have Lee take them to French Town. They successfully shoo away a lizard of some sort before turning the conversation to RomCom the doormat. Mo’Rum doesn’t understand why RomCom cares about Grandpa, who treats her like garbage and never does anything for her. Ginger, on the other hand, cooks for and takes care of Mo’Rum. She thinks girls need to have more respect for themselves than RomCom does. They agree that the situation is going to blow up.
The ladies and Swift head out for the night, where RomCom (who is apparently a different person when not around Grandpa) finds a guy to bump-n-grind.
“Nice to meet you. So, how many kids do you want?”
Needless to say, the other girls are happy to see RomCom having fun. They’re even more thrilled on the way home, when they find out that she exchanged numbers with him. Naturally, in the blink of an eye, she switches to buzzkill mode and says she won’t bother with him because she likes Grandpa. Mo’Rum loudly disapproves, and Swift loudly tries to reassure RomCom that she’s a “good girl” who gives “unconditional love.” They start yelling at each other while Latoya and RomCom bury their heads in the seats and wait for the ride to be over.
Mo’Rum hates watching girls like RomCom be “the sideline chick.” Then she drops this gem on us: “You should never be an option, you should always be a priority.” RomCom stays back on the boat, with Swift, and tells him she’ll do whatever she can to make it work.
Enjoy babysitting Grandpa’s child while he’s out meeting new girls, then.
Swift and RomCom agree that she’s not getting played because she knows what’s going on. Oh, if only she knew the whole story. They also agree that Mo’Rum runs her mouth a lot and doesn’t even know what’s going on between her and Ginger. Looking at the evidence we’ve seen, I’d have to disagree on that one. Sure, both of them are confused, but they’ve had multiple conversations about it. And while I understand Grandpa’s desire to keep his situation private, even before that he was being sketchy.
Inside, Mo’Rum recounts the night’s events for Grandpa and Captain Needy. When she brings up the “really hot guy” RomCom met, Grandpa interjects to say that’s cool. Then she tells them RomCom refused to hook up with him because she likes Grandpa, which she found stupid. Mo’Rum says if she were RomCom, she would definitely have hooked up with the guy.
“And that, unloyal woman, is why you shall never be mine!”
RomCom literally asks to hold Swift’s hand for the treacherous walk from the boat to the house. This friendship is totally sweet and heartwarming and whatnot, but is Swift really encouraging her to stay with Grandpa? Surely he must think that’s a bad idea, no?
