They are driven to the parade, although Mo’Rum is utterly perplexed at the very notion that several of the roomies want to go watch said parade. She, on the other hand, will be attending mass. Naturally.
Captain Needy decides to head to the bar with Ginger and Mo’Rum while the other four roomies go to soberly watch the parade. Latoya, possibly this season’s Queen of Logic, questions the thought process behind this decision. Captain Sober instantly looks for support, which Ginger half-heartedly provides.
Hint: find a rock to lean on that is not drowning in alcohol.
The Sobriety Society has a grand old time dancing at the parade, and Latoya says Captain Needy is missing out. In his defense, dancing (especially sober) is not exactly his idea of a good time. Meanwhile, at the bar, he looks on mopily while the Drunk Brigade continue to throw them back. Eventually he just leaves the bar and the drunkards explain the situation to the bartender. Captain Needy wanders angstily through the bright afternoon streets of St. Croix.
After some wandering, and a dramatic retelling in the confessional, Captain Needy overcomes his temptation. Mo’Rum encourages him to get into the spirit despite being bombed, and he cheers up slightly. Before long, he’s joyfully dancing around, looking possibly the happiest we’ve ever seen him. Ginger and Mo’Rum get covered in mud and make out a bit.
“Someone put too much soap in the dishwasher! RUN!!!”
The roomies are now at an honest to goodness foam party, because apparently that is a thing that still exists. The lovebirds (not the wannabes, the actual ones) sneak away for a drunken chat. Ginger reiterates his claim that he would not have invited his GBH to visit if he knew what would happen with Mo’Rum. She apologizes to Emily via confessional for causing Ginger to fall in love with her.
Meanwhile, Grandpa is shooting some pool with Captain Needy while shooting disapproving looks at RomCom, who is having a drunken, barely flirty conversation with two schlubs. Afterward, he walks away when she drunkenly calls out to him. “He won’t talk to me,” she pouts, as if she’s being deprived of the sparkling conversation that only he can provide. She recounts the events for Ginger, who plays Captain Obvious by pointing out that Grandpa has no right to be pissed on account of his GBH.
When they get back to the hotel, Swift tells RomCom not to cry, while RomCom tells us that she doesn’t know how to respond. How about “don’t bother talking to me until you get the fuck over it?” Grandpa admits that seeing RomCom with another guy does bother him, because it reminds him that she is capable of doing things besides catering to his every whim.
“I had to get this drink myself. Harrumph.”
