Previously: Captain Needy had drinking issues, drug issues, girl issues, loneliness issues, journal issues, you name it. Swift lost a fight with a sea urchin and blamed it on Latoya.
Is it safe to be doing this so close to Captain Needy? One of these is bound to get stuck in his ear gages sooner or later, right?
Currently: Marie is awake, and therefore looking for a rum-drinking buddy. (Marie? More like Mo’Rum, amiright?) Captain Needy is the nearest person, so she enlists him. Naturally, he’s just happy to be included in anything, so it doesn’t take much persuasion.
Next we learn that Latoya doesn’t drink. WTF? Who let her on the show? I mean, in real life we should respect her choices and all, but this is reality television. She is a great argument for the fact that it is possible to have fun sober, though, because she’s one of the most fun roomies this season (which might not be saying much) even without alcohol.
Captain Needy, on the other hand, likes to enjoy a beer before his NA meetings. He insists that the meetings serve their purpose since he doesn’t use anymore, and Latoya tells him to stick with moderate drinking because if it starts affecting his life, it’s a problem. Ahhh, the level of insight that only sobriety can bring.
The girls head into town for lunch, and we learn that Latoya loves mayo more than any human should ever love a condiment:
Not drinking is one thing, but this is too much. Officially judging Latoya.
But then again, I’m a weirdo. I don’t even like ketchup, let alone more advanced condiments like mustard, mayo, etc.
As they head back home, they find that the ever-present Lee the Boat Driver has finally been let on break! Maybe St. Thomas has labor laws after all. In his place is Rikky, who turns out to be his son and is pretty adorable, if not quite on his father’s level of awesomeness. Latoya develops an instant crush. Mo’Rum wholeheartedly approves, of course, and we get a nice confessional song about it.
Apparently it’s already time to start whining about how messy the house is, and Trey is leading the charge. He declares it “mainly a food and trash issue,” as opposed to all of the other things that usually make a mess. Those are also the easiest things to fix. It’s not like you’ve even been there long enough for dust to pile up. You can start whining when there’s poop on the floor. Human or animal.
Far more intriguing is Waffle Ankles over here. Where’s our insight into this curiosity?
Ginger doesn’t appreciate Trey acting like everyone’s dad, and Mo’Rum tells us that Trey’s whining is annoying because he’s not the only one who cleans. Thus far, I like them more than Trey; therefore, side taken. Apparently I take sides easily.
