Mike and Emmett's. Ted's joined them for Chinese take-out. Emmett grins, "If I knew how many men you could meet at straight functions, I would have started going years ago." Ted congratulates him for finding "the one truffle in the garden." Emmett says, "I wouldn't be so sure. I have my suspicions about the groom." Shout-out! Mike's awfully quiet, so Ted asks him how his evening went. Emmett smirks, "He brought home a nice centerpiece of his own." Ted's startled, but recovers: "Well. You certainly didn't waste any time, did you? In town less than twenty-four hours." Emmett shrugs, "Why shouldn't he get a little action? He's outside the four-hundred-mile limit for extramarital quickies and anonymous assignations." Mike stays quiet. Emmett continues, "Mind you, if you want to do anything further, you'll have to do overseas travel and a fourteen-minimum day stay..." Mike's not sayin' nuthin'. Eeyore pouts, "I just thought, with everything you wrote, you know. That you and [Demon] were so in love. So committed." Emmett answers for his once and future roommate: "Every relationship has its own set of rules. Their arrangement is none of our business. Right, sweetie?" Yeah. Emmett wants to know what's up real bad. Mike finally blurts, "We broke up. It's over. David and I are over." Emmett shoots him a look of sympathy and then turns back to his food, calling it "the best dumplings [he's] ever had." Ted's like, did you hear what Mike said? Emmett heard, and then demands to know why Mike didn't say anything. Mike says he was going to, "when the time was right." T&E and I roll our eyes. And it's really starting to hurt. Mikey pouts, "But there's never a right time to admit that you failed. That you had this great opportunity to start your life over with someone that you loved, or thought you loved, and you blew it. I blew it. I complained that David was working too much, and that I couldn't find a job, and that I didn't have any friends. And when I accused him of being thoughtless and not caring, and said that if I knew it was going to be like this, I never would have come, he said, 'Well, go home, Michael!' Go home." Ted throws an arm around him and replies, "I wouldn't say that you failed." Emmett adds that it's not true that Michael doesn't have any friends: "'Cause you still got us." Ted says there's no shame in coming home: "That's what it's here for."
