Different subject! Grandma asks Tali what her favorite thing about Luke is. "He's probably one of the most genuine people I've ever met," Tali says. Ha! Every other word out of his mouth has been fed to him by a producer. "Everything he says and does is from the heart," Tali adds. Yeah, just not his heart. By the way, I am digging Grandma's little ascot scarf thing. Not many people could pull that off, but she does. Her and Fred from Scooby-Doo.
Back with the men, it's Luke's turn to reveal Tali's shocking secret of Jewishness. But since we've already spent way too much time on this, they don't say much and we cut to everyone sitting down for dinner. Uh oh!! They say grace before every meal! What will Tali do with all of her non-grace-saying Jewishness?? She'll bow her head and hold hands along with the rest of the family. No big deal. They don't show if she says "amen" along with them. Probably not, though. Mike jokes that they should just have church right here. Tali laughs. Then Mike says "praise the lord and pass the pataters!" and the laughter gets polite. Mike spends the rest of the meal being kind of obnoxious. Michael steps up and asks Tali what the funnest date she's had with Luke has been. Tali mentions their last date in the water, and Luke explains that he "planned" a snorkeling date without knowing that Tali is "deathly afraid" of water. It turns out that she doesn't even know how to swim. Maybe she would be less afraid of water if she knew how to be in it without drowning? Take a swimming lesson, Tali. You will be so embarrassed if you die by a completely preventable drowning.
Mike gets serious for a second and asks Tali what she likes about Luke. Tali says that she and Luke share "the same perspective about life." She grew up being put down for her weight and made to feel insecure, so she wants to have something to do with inspiring children who are in the same position to feel good about themselves and achieve their dreams. But I thought she was a fashion stylist? Anyway, the family toasts to Luke and Tali and then head inside for dessert. Mike asks Tali about the weather in Israel. She says it's not like the weather in Santa Maria because it's humid. Mike asks if it's "still really humid" near the ocean. First of all, Tali isn't going anywhere near an ocean to find out, as we know. Second of all, duh. It's always going to be more humid next to an ocean. Mike asks Tali how she feels about Christianity being "Israeli." Because everyone in Israel is Jewish as far as Mike is concerned. Tali's answer is cut up too much to make any sense. Mike asks about how they'll raise their children. Obviously, he wants his son's kids to be Christian. Too bad so sad, Mike! Jewish mother = Jewish kids. It's a rule. Tali says she wants her kids to know her "heritage" and Luke feels the same way, so they'll just teach them both. She doesn't think that'll be a problem. Yeah, that's not at all confusing for a child. On the other hand, it means double presents in December, so it's worth it. Tali thinks the most important thing is that their kids have good values. Luke speaks up and says that they ultimately believe in the same God, so he doesn't think religion is enough to stand in their way of a relationship. Mike folds his arms so we'll think there is some kind of drama. Luke says he stepped up during the religion questioning so that Tali wouldn't feel like she was on her own. Mike says that their different religions will mean they have hurdles. Yeah, mostly from the people around the relationship as opposed to the people who are actually in it. Luke says that his father is "opinionated" and his opinions mean a lot to Luke. With that, dinner is over.
