Ginger finally mans up, calls Emily, and tells her not to come. She asks what changed, but he continues to blame it on the fact that she hooked up with someone, even though they weren’t that serious. He neglects to mention Mo’Rum and that whole situation, even though I’m sure it has plenty to do with his decision. Also, he waited until the last minute, so who knows how much money she’ll lose. Ginger, I usually like you, but you handled this poorly. Yeah, so, she’s crying because he basically just dumped her, and all he can do is tell her to live her life and not to cry… did I mention she’s out at the bar with her friends?
The other roomies arrive home from dinner, and Mo’Rum has brought home dinner for Ginger. He’s even excited about this, clearly used to being the one doing things for others over having things done for him. She asks about his day and he recounts his unsuccessful attempt to shop for sunglasses, his successful attempt to shop for paper towels, and (oh yeah, BTW) telling Emily not to come. Mo’Rum asks what happened and Ginger continues to blame it all on Emily hooking up with someone. He starts to worm his way back to my good graces by using the words “miffed” and “peeved” to describe Mo’Rum’s reaction.
Whatever gave you that idea?
For real though, it’s a rare Real Worlder who has heard of a thesaurus, so props to him. Mo’Rum calls up her sister to give her the news, and wonders what to do about Max. Her sister tells her to be honest, and ALL OF A SUDDEN Mo’Rum of all people is concerned about being rude. Poor Max, was he really coming just to see her? That’s a lot of effort for someone you barely know.
The roomies head to work, with Swift wondering if he and Mo’Rum will be able to cooperate. No worries, though, it’s all sunshine and happiness at Coral World! Seriously, though, this might be the most fun “job” in a long time, if not ever, on this show. I wouldn’t mind a few more montage before the season is over, but the jobs rarely get much screen time.
Latoya is amused by the fact that Captain Needy is more grossed out by the dead fish than she is. By the way, this is Ginger and Grandpa’s job:
Mo’Rum says she can put her differences with Swift aside for the sake of not being miserable all day at their job. Like it’s possible to be miserable when your job is to hang out with Remo all day.
“Smile and like it, humans!”
He then hilariously kisses Swift and Mo’Rum on the cheeks and appears to roar in RomCom’s face.
Back at the house, Mo’Rum cops to her obnoxiousness and attitude, which Swift appreciates. They apologize to each other and agree that they’re going to clash, but sometimes they like each other. Your hearts, Gasmii, are they warmed? Or at least thawed? Oh well, at least they’re taking a stab at being mature.
