At Tony's apartment in Los Angeles, Tony puts his arm around a chuckling Duane and leads him outside. He interviews that Duane is the closest thing that BJ has to a dad (that is so going on her therapy intake sheet), so Tony thought it was important to Duane to have Tony ask him for his blessing to marry BJ. With one hand on Duane's shoulder, Tony blathers about how they've connected "on a friendship level," and he thinks Duane is "amazing," and that Duane and BJ are "just incredible." "In doing so [what 'doing so' refers to is not explained], I'd like to ask your blessing for our union." Duane looks like he's trying not to crack up. He shoots the camera a hilarious "get this crazy-ass shit" look, and then he looks at Tony and very seriously says, "Yes." They hug. Tony interviews that Duane was happy to be asked. Duane says he was happy to be asked. In other words, Duane was happy to be asked. They hug some more. Next, we see Duane weeping to the camera about how hard it is when someone you don't know "takes someone that you love away from you." Apparently, Duane has been swamped by a tidal wave of melancholy all of a sudden.
The next thing you know, Tony and BJ and Duane are all talking inside. Duane is explaining that everyone is happy for Billie Jeanne, and no one is thinking about the fact that he, Duane, is "the ultimate loser here." Because, of course, when your friends get engaged, the important thing to remember is that it's all about you. You! "I lose my friend, I lose my roommate," blah blah blah. Billie Jeanne explains that Duane then pulled her into the bathroom and proceeded to have a nervous breakdown of sorts about how he "couldn't take this anymore" (huh?) and was so upset about her getting married and everything. We hear Duane sobbing on the other side of the bathroom door. "Everyone else is having fun except for meeee," he snorfles. Billie Jeanne says that Duane's "emotions" and "how he really feels about [her]" are being "exposed" as a result of this very intense situation. Duane then correctly sobs through the door that everyone is probably laughing at him. Well, I know I am, anyway. "I'm tired of the whole scenario," he says. Have I mentioned that it appears that at the time this was taped, the "whole scenario" had been going on for less than two weeks, and had involved Duane for about three days? Duane needs more scenario-related coping skills, I have to say. He then, for some reason, refers to himself as "the token queer" (objection: irrelevant) and talks about his emotions and something something and this is about as much of Tony's bathroom door as I really need to see in dramatic Floor-Perspective-Cam. We hear a nose blown loudly. BJ's friend Paige walks up and knocks, but Duane says, "Go away!" Paige says, "It's Paige." Duane says, "That's nice! Go away!" What an ass, seriously. Way to make your friend's entire engagement about you and your personal suffering. You can tell he's one of those guys who finds himself adorably quirky, but I personally think he just sucks.
