The eating of Italian food ensues. Jill's ring is displayed to her friends and/or cousins and/or peeps of some other variety, who gather around obligingly to go, "Wheeeeee!" And then...EW! Scary Anthony is walking around a kitchen full of guests with no shirt on. That is seriously gross. Body hair in the food is not acceptable, no matter how well you know everyone at the party. Mama Nic orders him to go get a shirt on, making her something of a hero in my eyes. Jill interviews that she thought Kevin's family might have been "a little overwhelmed" by the Nics, and I have to say, I've been more than a little overwhelmed by gatherings of relatives less aggressive than this, so I suspect she's right. As we see Kevin and Bunky enjoy a drink and presumably eyeball the Nics with fear and loathing, Jill voices over that Kevin warned her that his parents are very strict and religious, so she was concerned about how they might react to the fact that she once posed in Playboy (she just says "my past," but she is referring to Playboy). I'm not sure why that would be any of their damn business right at the moment, but it's not like logic is dictating very much of what goes on, so who am I to try to force it?
At Tony's apartment, things are looking even more sketchy as BJ tries to figure out what to wear to dinner with Tony's family. She claims that she wanted to be "beautiful," but she also wanted to be "conservative." So she wears a nice, conservative white sweater made of feathers or polar bear fur or something. "What if your dad hates me?" she foreshadows as she and Tony walk into the restaurant. Tony says that he was nervous to introduce BJ to the family, because he was nervous about "what she might say." BJ comments that Tony's dad looked "very conservative," but she hugged him anyway, because she's got that whole "I Gotta Be Me" thing going on, and she just had to hug him. She's gotta be her! And that means hugs! For everyone! She also comments to the gathered dinner guests that the restaurant is so warm that she feels like she's "in a safari." Eh? That was the best warm situation she could think of? She makes small talk about how Tony's dad is "handsome," just like his "handsome" son. I suppose this is as good a time as any to point out that I really don't find Tony very "handsome." His eyes are too small, and he strikes me as intensely smarmy. Yuck. Tony goes on to say that having BJ at dinner with his family was "awkward," because he doesn't usually bring girls home. I guess he just screws them and throws them out the window. At dinner, BJ tells Tony's dad that she's "easy to get along with," and that therefore they should just tell her if there's anything about her that they don't like. Ech. More with the needy.
