Telson's hotel. Brian's wearing his "Rebel Without a Clue" outfit from last episode, but without the sunglasses. He walks down the hallway in slo-mo, to bopping techno music. There's got to be a handbook for slo-mo use out there somewhere, and I'm willing to buy the directors one, because the need is obvious. Brian knocks on the door, and a bellboy answers, smirking at Brian as he walks past him. I don't even wanna know what's going on there. Telson's on the phone, but pauses to tell Brian, "I wasn't sure you'd come." Brian closes the door behind him with a grin: "I always come when I say I'm going to." Tell that to Lindsay.
Papagano's. Dr. Dave and Mike sit at a table in the middle of the dining room, while waiters glide to and fro and smooth jazz plays in the background. Dr. Dave orders a glass of wine, and Mike orders a Diet Pepsi. Uh-huh. Dr. Dave asks him, looking at his jacket, "Is that Hugo Boss?" Mike, swerving around to look behind him: "Where?" Great. A fully-dressed replay of Brian and Justin's "Do you like Special K/I like Cheerios better" scene from the premiere. Don your helmets, y'all. And yes, for those of you burning to know, the jacket is designed by Hugo Boss. Mike says that he actually borrowed the clothes from a friend. Dr. Dave replies, "I bet he doesn't look half as good in it as you do." Yeah, maybe if you cut Brian down the middle while he was wearing it. Mike says that Brian looks better in it. Dr. Dave says that he finds that hard to believe. He must actually like Mikey, because that's a big ole lie. Now I'm feeling sorry for him. Mike doesn't get it, and starts talking about how gorgeous Brian is: "He looks good in everything, he looks good in nothing." Just because it's true doesn't mean it's good first-date conversation. Dr. Dave asks if Brian has a nice body -- um, why are you encouraging him? Mike snorts and says does he EVER! Shut up, Mike. Now. Mikey says that when Brian walks into Babylon, "heads turn like police lights on him." Dr. Dave: "Sounds like I could do a fortune doing neck adjustments." Mike shakes his head, "Everybody wants him." Dr. Dave asks if that includes Mike. All together, now: "No. He's my best friend." Dr. Dave says that's good, because he was starting to get jealous. Hold on to that feeling, buddy. Mike says it doesn't even matter, because Brian's not interested in him. Dr. Dave: "I'm surprised. I'd think it would be very easy to be interested in you." Well, familiarity does breed contempt, believe me. He's not selling this "wow, you're so fascinating" bit. What is he basing this on? A hard-on on his examination table and Mikey's mastery at juggling baskets? The waiter shows up with the bottle of wine, letting Dr. Dave sample before he pours a full glass. Dave pronounces it "excellent." Mike's obviously intimidated. Another waiter puts down his Diet Pepsi, in a wine glass with a straw sticking out of it. Mike raises his own glass, "This is excellent, too." Dr. Dave can't decide whether to grimace or laugh, so he says that collects wine: "I just bought a bottle of '61 Petrus on eBay." Like this means anything to Mikey -- or to me, for that matter. Mike's all excited, though, because he just bought a rare Flash comic book that he's been looking for for years! Dr. Dave has no idea what he's talking about. Wow, I guess these two have nothing in common. WE. GET. IT. Dave's looking like maybe this wasn't a good idea, but amends that Mike is obviously "passionate" about his collection. Michael says that whenever he gets a new comic book, he feels "like I'm a kid again, up in my old room." Dr. Dave grins, "The mystery of the perpetual boy." That sounds like it's from something, but I don't know what. It's too poetic for the writers to have come up with, for sure. Dr. Dave offers a toast to "The Flash."
