Close-up on bed springs creaking and jumping as Emmett shouts, "Harder!" He's making celebratory shouts as the camera pans up to show us not Emmett and Pickle naked and thrusting, but Emmett and Michael clothed and shutting a suitcase. Comedy! I love Emmett's shirt and want one for myself. It would look great under my Radiohead t-shirt. Emmett reminds Michael that while Emmett's gone, Michael will have the place all to himself so he can have loud sex with Ben instead of having loud sex with Ben while Emmett listens through a wall. For a second, Emmett reconsiders going. There's a horn honking outside. I'm thinking the script for this episode was too short because we keep seeing long periods of no talking where nothing's happening. Like here. We watch Michael go to the window and look outside. He announces that it's Pickle's limo. Then we watch Emmett go to the window, open the window, lean down, and call out to Pickle to come upstairs. Unless it was just for some butt shots. In which case, good work, camera guy. Emmett says he hopes he doesn't act like a shopgirl and embarrass Pickle worldwide. Emmett says that Pickle is refined, and that he's what they used to call "a piece of trash." Michael and Emmett struggle with Emmett's many, many bags as Michael reminds Emmett that he's not in Hazlehurst anymore and that Pickle doesn't feel that way about Emmett. Emmett says that this is more than he ever dreamed. Michael says that Emmett deserves a life as fabulous as he is. They pet each other on the arms. Knock at the door. It's Pickle and his driver. Pickle's decked out in the leather. Emmett calls Pickle his dream date, and they kiss. Pickle leans down to fetch Emmett's luggage. Whatever -- that's what the driver's for, isn't it, Pickle? Michael tells Pickle to have a great trip. They shake hands. Emmett starts a lingering goodbye with Michael that doesn't end until Pickle drags Emmett's teary ass out of the apartment. Emmett promises to send postcards while giving borderline offensive impressions of Asian people. He leaves with the front door still open.
