The next morning, Ali has managed to pry Roberto off of her face and has showered (maybe?) and is heading out for a whole boatload of AWKWARD. Make that a helicopter-ride full of AWKWARD. Ali, Frank and Ty all cram into the back of a helicopter and Ali is the meat in a man sandwich. Frank is cursing the weirdness of having to share Ali with Ty, but he totally took his meds and thinks (hopes!) he can handle it and won't spend the length of the helicopter ride sharpening his fingernails to scratch Ty's eyes out. The helicopter lands at another beautiful castle and Ty, who is always one with nature (at least until he shoots it), points out a deer. He grabs Frank's arm first, oddly (revealingly?), and then finally gets Ali's attention. She oohs and ahhs over Bambi, and Ty totally pretends that his arms aren't aching for the barrel of a gun to mow Bambi down and mount it on his wall. Then it's time for the most uncomfortable dinner on record, where Ali, Ty and Frank all break bread together. Although Ali won't eat bread on national television for fear of letters from The Zone people and instead opts for wine to soothe the Awkward.
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.
