Mo’Rum, Latoya, Ginger, and Captain Needy head into town. Our resident mope tells his sad story to some guy who may or may not own a bar and asks if they can chill there tonight. The guy says yes out of pity and/or self-preservation. Mo’Rum, selfless friend extraordinaire, is willing to throw back some shots if it will make Captain Needy feel better, because that’s how much she cares.
Ginger, bless his heart, sits Captain Needy down for a pep talk. “Everybody watches me decorate my room, dawg,” Captain Needy mopes with the cadence of a whiny child. Ginger says he’s happy to get to see the softer side of Needy, his alleged closest guy friend in the house.
“Wait-wait-wait… you’re saying we’re friends?! This rollercoaster night is on the way back up!”
Lee arrives, and it seems he’s still using his “100 Free Hours of AOL” CD-ROM, because he hands them an envelope and throws in a hearty “you’ve got mail!” He quickly makes his exit and the roomies learn that they will be working in an aquarium. The levels of excitement vary, but RomCom is by far the MOST EXCITED. Probably because “dolphin trainer” is cinematically a very romantic profession. Swift continues to read the paper aloud, and it HILARIOUSLY includes a list of qualities the aquarium is looking for, as if they have any say in the people they’ll be hiring.
Captain Needy does some light housework, earning him the compliment of Mo’Rum calling him cute. Captain Needy responds with the information that he is sweating his balls off, earning him a condescending “good, that means you’re doing something” from Grandpa Trey. Mo’Rum calls Gramps out for his grumpiness, and he responds by loudly grumping at her as he walks away. He then rubs himself all over her bed and pillows. Way to keep things neat and tidy, Mr. Clean.
“Oh, grandpa, you’re so silly. Get over here and let me pop that hip back into place.”
The next morning, it’s time for the roomies to head into town (Latoya is happy to see Rikky AKA Little Lee driving the boat) for their “job interview.” Brandon is excited about touching sharks and would also like to touch their “super-cute” boss. Is “super-cute” a common turn of phrase amongst Southie men?
RomCom puts her hands in the “keep hands out” zone, because of course she does. In the “you can touch this” arena, Swifty is still not a fan of sea urchins. Latoya informs us that in spite of her issues with Swift and his sea urchins, she’s “keeping it cordial.”
Their tour of the aquarium concludes with swimming and playing with an awesome sea lion named Remo. I, for one, am jealous. And now for their “interviews,” in which we learn that their boss is a different guy named Lee. Mo’Rum informs us that she is great at interviews and is sure she will get to work with Remo. Swift gives a hilariously stuttering response to a question about public speaking.
