Mo’Rum says that she and Ginger are the only ones in the house who really drink (to be fair, it’s legitimate to expect more people at her level of drinking when signing up for this show). She says that every single joke about her in the house is about alcohol. Well, where could that possibly come from?
If you look reeeally closely at her here, you can ALMOST see an emotion! Not just a drinking machine, friends!
Ginger recounts his intervention for Mo’Rum, who accuses him of agreeing with people just to be “nice and kind” and letting them tell him what he’s doing. Because letting friends express their (completely legitimate) concerns is so terrible? Ginger rolls over and accepts this criticism as usual.
Latoya recounts Mo’Rum’s statement about the non-drinking vs. drinking being at a 5:2 ratio. Grandpa says that every steroid joke is about him (well, maybe give the roid rage a rest?), every tall joke is about Ginger (cause that’s the same), and they all take shit for something. Turns out Swift takes shit in the form of the roommates joking about him being gay. For some reason, Latoya’s laughter and Grandpa’s joke really upset Swift.
So much so, in fact, that he WAKES HER UP AT FOUR A.M. TO YELL AT HER ABOUT IT. Seriously?! What a douche! Anyway, she tells him he’s a pussy for not confronting Grandpa about it, since Grandpa made the joke in the first place. Swift claims he would if Grandpa knew “everything.”
The roomies head to work, where they will be working in the Butterfly Garden. We learn that Latoya is not a fan of butterflies, surprisingly enough. Since she’s so awesome, this little quirk is endearing instead of just plain ridiculous.
No worries, 10 seconds of Googling has convinced me that there is no such thing. This would be a perfect gag gift for Latoya, though.
Latoya recounts the events of the previous night for Mo’Rum while they work, and before you know it they’re heading home. I wish my work hours were this short. And involved butterflies and/or sea lions.
Time to get ready for dinner at Philipo’s! Ginger puts on Mo’Rum’s shirt from St. Patrick’s Day (the one asking for money) and proceeds to mock her gold-digging ways.
They get there, and it’s as huge and fancy as you’d expect. He shows Mo’Rum and Laura the view (which includes their house/island) over some wine, prompting Mo’Rum to tell us that she loves Philipo because he has so much money. What a deep, surprising, personal revelation!
In case you though the way to Mo’Rum’s heart was through her liver, you should know it’s much deeper than that. It’s through a wallet.
While they’re eating, Philipo gives a welcome toast to his “new friends,” and holy crap is this guy a dork. He asks Mo’Rum if she’s from Long Island, and she gets all offended (hey!) and says she’s from Staten Island, and she’s a borough. BARELY, but I digress.
