Downstairs, Baze wonders what he has to do to convince Cate to come to his parents' house. She says she's already made up her mind and wouldn't want to go to dinner with judgmental, elitist, uptight people like the Baziles. Baze points out that she is exactly like them and half-jokingly asks how Ryan puts up with her. Noticing that it's his turn to speak, Ryan asks if something is burning. Cate turns to the oven and freaks as she pulls out a smoking pan. Baze nearly thinks he's won, but Cate tells him she's still not going. He finally comes clean that his dad has threatened to pull the bar because he thinks they can't handle raising a kid. Cate takes major offense that his parents have already passed judgment on her without meeting her. Oh, it's on! As icing on the cake, Ryan plays mediator, telling Cate she should go. His reasons are threefold: 1.) Prove Baze's parents wrong by showing them how responsible she is; 2.) Prove Baze's parents right by showing them that he is, therefore, less responsible but she still can handle it, and 3.) Get Lux, Bug, and their hormones out of the Attic of Iniquity. Not all that much iniquity, though, as Lux and Bug both still have their shirts on when the guys scream up for Lux to come down so they can leave for dinner. She asks if she can bring Bug. All together now: "No!"
Some time later, The Odd Trio are all prettied up as they arrive at the Baziles' home. Lux is annoyed she couldn't bring Bug, but Cate says that's not the best first impression to leave. Lux snarks that Cate's overly formal prom (and, might I add, Rachel Zoe Lite fur shoulder shawl) dress isn't working, either. But it's too late to change as Baze's parents meet the gang out on the driveway. Mrs. Bazile greets Lux with open arms (and visible bra, whoa sexy grandma sweater!). Mr. Bazile stands back like a pompous prick. Just as Baze introduces Cate to his mom, they hear tires squeak in the background. Pan across the driveway to find Cate's sister Abbie and her mom running up the drive -- wine box in hand! Now those are my kind of dinner guests. Lux, not so much. Even the street urchin finds these people a little déclassé. Needles to say, Cate is mortified. Commercials.
We return to the family meet-and-greet. As the Baziles take Lux inside, Cate bitch-faces at her mom and sister about why they're there. Abbie wastes not a moment before trying to create sparks with Baze. Except he doesn't even remember her name. Heh. Clearly stressed, he starts inside hoping the ladies will follow. Nope! Cate's mom takes her aside to say how relieved she is that Cate lost her virginity to the QB instead of the mascot. Methinks the Baziles should pull up a chair for Cate's mortification. It ain't going nowheres. Cate zips up her mother's jacket and asks her to tone it down just for one night. Mom huffs her box of white zin into the house as Abbie snits at Cate for sleeping with Baze behind her back. What about that whole "he just thought your name was Annie?" thing, asks Cate. "He was being discreet," insists Abbie. Uh huh.
