At the bar, Melanie hands Justin her glass and orders a margarita. Melanie does a double take, and asks Justin where he learned to mix drinks. Justin reminds her, "I'm from the gentile country-club set." The camera zooms over to Mike and Brian, who gather everyone around to watch Mikey open his presents. Turns out Mike always wanted an Easy-Cake Oven, but we all knew that Emmett was going to be right. Ted chortles as Mike opens his gift -- a g-string shaped like an elephant. So, you know, your penis goes into the trunk, etc. Ted thinks it's hysterical; everyone else is pretty much embarrassed for him. David's present is next. It's a really expensive, grown-up, water-resistant watch. Brian backs up into the middle of the loft and calls Mike's attention. As Mike turns around, Brian steps aside to reveal...Captain Astro! The crowd is delighted, as Captain Astro intones, "I heard it was your birthday, so I thought I'd fly by and bring you something special." He hands Mike a comic book, but not just any comic book. It's Astro Comics #1, which has the first appearance of Captain Astro in print! Brian smiles, "Anything for my best friend." Mike gives him a big ole hug. David, shown up, sulks in the corner with Debbie. Brian asks Astro to stick around and dance with Michael. Debbie tells David that it was a beautiful watch, "and a beautiful thought." True, but it's also completely impersonal. Brian smiles at Mike and Astro getting down, and shoots a look at David, who drifts away. Debbie, dancing with Vic, glares at Brian. Emmett kisses Lindsay and the baby. HDGBs in grape-covered underwear (no, seriously) gyrate on top of the kitchen counter. Justin and Melanie bond over cigarettes and margaritas (I could use both of those right now). David looks like he's about to go over to Brian and say something, but Brian slowly turns away and leans on a pole on the other side of the loft.
