Felicity is at work, and her mom comes in. Javier runs up and hugs Mrs. Porter, and says, "Oh. Ooooh. At last we meet." While still hugging Mrs. P, Javier says, "This is so emotional! For me." Then he tells her that anything she wants is on the house. The whole time this interchange is going on, Felicity is cracking up. Do you think the actors just laugh and laugh when they have scenes with Ian Gomez? Because I would. Felicity apologizes to her mom about Javier, and her mom apologizes for her remarks about David, since it's not her place to say. Mrs. P is looking forward to getting to know David, and she got him a gift. Felicity asks if her dad is furious about the pre-med thing and Mrs. P urges her to talk to her father.
Knoll is throwing a little tantrum because David's mother is coming to their dinner. His reasoning is that "teachers should stay in school. They should not come to my house." Didn't the rest of us learn that teachers have lives outside the classroom in about the fifth grade? Just checking. Elena searches for her storyline while pretending to arrange some flowers and Knoll explains that Prof. Sherman is intimidating. Elena and I both tell Knoll to chill. Elena adds that he needs to go to the store because he is the co-host. Knoll leaves and Elena asks Felicity about David. Felicity tells her that David stopped by twice out of the blue. Elena asks if David is getting more serious than Felicity, and Felicity says she's probably overreacting. Hey, Felicity never overreacts! Oh wait, actually she does it all the freaking time! Elena asks how David is taking the "parent Thanksgiving thing," and Felicity says he's okay with it. Elena points out that a normal guy would be freaked out. Felicity mentions that her mom bought David a gift, and Elena suggests that Felicity use the gift as a barometer of David's intentions. If he is freaked out by the gift, things are cool. If not, Felicity needs to worry.
Julie and Sean are whispering to one another in Dean and Deluca. In the background, Javier is talking to Maggie's husband and pointing out "blue water. It's not really blue -- it's just the bottle." Yes, I recognize my obsessive need to catalog everything Javier says, even if it doesn't apply to the plot. I just love him. Ben sees his roommates whispering and rushes out, telling them he knows what they are talking about and everything will be fine. Projecting much, Ben? Julie and Sean say they were just wondering if they can take the leftover food home. Ben points out Maggie's husband. Julie didn't know that Maggie is married. Ben says he wasn't advertising it. The Husband comes over and introduces himself, then apologizes in advance to all three of them for having to put up with "stuffy, rich people." He also recognizes Ben as the "kid" who sold him the cake for his anniversary. See, now we are supposed to think he's a swell guy, and understand that Ben feels guilty for cuckolding him.
