YET AGAIN, Luke says that he knows that some of the girls had a bad time at prom and he's happy to give them some good prom memories. I don't think watching Luke try to dance is a great memory, but whatever. Emme tells everyone to settle the fuck down so she can announce the prom queen. Chase says there was "something about" the girl he chose, and he knew it even without talking to her for long. They picked Danielle, much to her surprise. I'm not surprised, but that's mostly because I have no idea who she is still. Oh, bitch time! Lauren interviews that she was "extremely surprised" when Danielle got prom queen, so much so that she said "what the fuck?" Danielle gets a tiara and a sash while Heather sulks and says she wants alone time with Luke. Then hold your freaking liquor next time you go on a date with him, Heather. It's not that hard. Luke and Danielle dance and Danielle sobs in an interview about how she felt like she was "floating in a dream." As opposed to those times when we feel like we're floating in reality. Bonnie shows us what a good sport she is about the whole thing by looking like she's going to barf and then interviewing that prom queen is supposed to go to the most liked person at the prom, which certainly isn't Danielle. It isn't you either, Bonnie. Go make a pie. It turns out that Chase and Sam picked Danielle because they're awesome and they don't like their friend very much, as Luke says that they picked a girl who isn't "at the top of [his] list right now."
The next day, Tali reminisces about prom. "That was a lot of fun. There were a lot of really fun moments," she says matter-of-factly. Danielle starts talking about how happy she is to have won Prom Queen and gotten a chance to dance with Luke. Mandy makes no attempt to hide her jealousy. Danielle claims that her dream date involves something "active." Doubt it! She says that she's nervous about her upcoming date and doesn't have much experience with dating, having only been on three in her entire life and none of them led to a second.
Luke and Danielle set off for their date. She hopes it'll be fun and not involve much talking because she's "talked out." I wish Kristian could be talked out. Danielle tells Luke she's happy to ditch the girls and engage in some "boy talk" with Luke. And before you know it, she's talking up a storm about sports and her stand-up comedy routine about her dad who dressed in drag at Sea World once and is no doubt thrilled that his daughter just said that on national television. "Danielle can definitely chat it up," Luke sighs. That makes it difficult to have a two-way conversation with her. I think he's just annoyed that she's not telling him how awesome he is at everything like all the other girls. "Read any good books lately, by the way?" Danielle asks. "Um," Luke says. He doesn't read books, and Danielle is getting the boot at the end of this episode. Maybe she can hook up with Sam instead. They finally arrive at a restaurant so Danielle can enjoy some of Luke's favorite foods. Way to make the date all about you again, Luke. They sit, and Luke asks if Danielle likes calamari. "I don't eat seafood," Danielle says. Luke's face falls as he thinks of all the Red Lobster all-you-can-eat-crab nights he won't be able to enjoy if he picks her. Luke thinks Danielle's dislike of seafood is awkward as if the restaurant doesn't serve anything but seafood. It does, and she'll be fine with a steak or whatever. Fortunately, Danielle does drink so they can still get wasted.
