The Gorgas arrive and pose on the boys' step and repeat. No Hoboken apartment is complete without one, really. Melissa testifies that she and Greg get along like a house on fire. "The day he told me that he wants to die and come back as me," she says with total humility, "he won me right over." The guys fill their guests in on their new gig securing publicity black water. They mention the launch even their planning the next month, and Greg says Melissa would be a great choice to perform at the party. Albie = silence. Joe whips out a CD of Melissa's single, so they pop it into a computer for a listen. Melissa says the guys are the exact demographic for her song, so she wants their feedback. As they listen, they maintain stoic faces, which frustrates Melissa, though Greg's face does change suddenly when the really vocoded effects come into play. Whether it's enjoyment, dislike, or just sheer surprise is anyone's guess. The song ends, and... pause. Albie finally says nicely that he thinks it's "really good." Greg takes the indulgence a bit further, claiming Melissa will be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame one day. Well, I wouldn't object to sending Melissa to Cleveland for good, but that might be overplaying it a bit. Christopher says in an interview that he "wasn't expecting it to be that good." Translate: "It didn't suck as bad as I expected." Still, it's no "Chic, C'est la Vie." Nonetheless, the guys are confident enough (read: forced by producers) to invite Melissa to perform at their launch party. They make a toast to the Gorgas and to the newly renamed city of Joeboken.
Elsewhere, Lauren welcomes Vito over. They're spending the night in. Christopher interviews that this homebody dynamic is what makes him not want to have a girlfriend. Underscoring their complete lack of sexiness, the music supervisors have overlaid a "Sexual Healing" knock-off orchestration as Vito shows Lauren how to prepare homemade mozzarella. Lauren says (I'm guessing ironically) that she feels like Demi Moore in Ghost with Vito as her Patrick Swayze. Just in case you took her comments too literally, she clarifies, "Except Vito's not dead." Vito asks how Lauren felt about her opening. She admits that insecurities about her physical appearance tainted the night for her. Vito tries to tell her that he thinks she looks great, but she thinks he has to say that. Lauren compares herself to her handsome, in-shape brothers and admits she's afraid she'll always be fat.
