Ali finally gives up on pretending that this is fun and takes Ty away for some alone time, leaving Frank to curl up with a bottle wine and some Rimbaud or Alannah Myles. Ali has a lot of questions for Ty. She would like to maybe revisit that whole "women shouldn't work thing". Ali wonders how Ty's stay-at-home mom would feel about this blond hussy with her mini skirts and 401K and big city ideas about work and birth control and hair dye. Ty swears his parents will be "satisfied" if he is happy, which sounds like a rave review. He swears up and down that he is "tickled" that Ali wants to work. Tickled! Ali thinks this is adorable and not at all creepy. Good on ya, girl. And by that I mean: You deserve whatever you get if you fall for that malarkey. Meanwhile, Kirk gets his date card. The card simply says: Once Upon a Time. Kirk doesn't get it, so Roberto helpfully points out that it's a fairytale reference. Roberto! Don't help the competition! Let Kirk think it has something to do with spores, molds and fungi. Sheesh.
Anyway, now it is Frank's chance at some Ali action. And, well, he has something rather uncomfortable to admit: He lives at home with his parents. He tries to couch it in terms of quitting his job, traveling through Europe and moving home, literally. He is rightfully embarrassed, but Ali seems completely nonplussed, like dating grown-ups who live in their basement is simply FUN! Frank is so touched that Ali doesn't care that he is a loser who lives in his parents' basement. I think this just shows that Ali is at least partially brain damaged. Frank suggests that they make out in a tree. So they do. Ali explains that she understands why Frank hid his biggest flaw, but she just doesn't care. She likes Frank! Frank likes her! His parents totally won't care if they make out in their basement! Maybe mom can bring snacks down when they get the munchies.
