Nico drops by Kirby's "downtown" walkup, which is pretty much exactly as I imagined it would be. (Except -- is that a rotary phone? Is Kirby even old enough to know how a rotary phone works?) Nico is drunk and giggly, but she can still multitask: while she removes Kirby's clothes, she starts laying down rules that he must follow if their fling is to continue. For example: they have to act like strangers in public; he can't contact her at home. To demonstrate how seriously he's taking all of this, Kirby writes down Nico's rules on a chalkboard. His shirt is already off, and I should note that we'll be seeing a lot of shirtless Kirby in this episode. There's one advantage of visiting him at home. Nico finds this cute, I think -- the writing and/or the shirtlessness -- but I can't say for sure, because I'm so distracted by the noisy, obtrusive music cue that kicks in to accompany Kirby's chalkboard act. Sometimes I think this show is just a really trumped-up vehicle for new and unremarkable pop songs.
Speaking of music -- and speaking of taking your shirt off -- it's time for the theme song! Woo! The captions have gone back to the boring "Take your share" translation, but I don't think I trust them, because they also claim that the vocalist sings, "We do what we want, too," where she is plainly saying "We do what we want to do." I guess the more significant question would be, why bother captioning this at all? This is not for listening! It's for dancing! It may be the most fun we'll have all hour!
