So it's a tie between all three ladies. Frankly, I can't believe they're even indulging in this clear situation of systematic mockery, but these are also people who wear Yeti boots and have vanity recording studios in their own homes, so there's that... For the tie breaker, Christopher asks, "Do you guys know what continent Cairo's on?" Melissa yells proudly, "Antarctica!" Despite being blatantly wrong, everyone seems to enjoy her chutzpah. She asks, "I'm intellectual?" Teresa just shakes her head. Oh, Tre, you are a master of the pot-kettle without even knowing it!
The next day, Joe asks if Melissa is ready for her performance at the Manzo boys' party. She says all sorts of things that amount to, "I need to practice," though I'm not entirely sure she's aware that's what they all mean. Meanwhile, Teresa's lost bag finally arrives and is met by much squealing and jumping around. This, in turn, is met by sarcastic slow-clapping from Greg and annoyed grimaces from Caroline as she tries to enjoy her damn breakfast. Teresa says she thought the trip overall was amazing and thinks they should all do it again, then the editors Frankenbyte in "go without Kathy!" I don't doubt Teresa thinks this, but the editing is a bit blatant, no? At the other villa, the Wakiles and Gorgas toast to a good vacation and a (hopefully) uneventful return home. Kathy conflict aside, Melissa acknowledges that the trip has been a step in the right direction for Teresa and Joe. With that, everyone packs up and ships out with these words from Albert: "Being in hell without you people would be a fuckin' vacation." Never better put, my man.
Back home, the Manzo boys show Melissa the NYC venue where she'll be performing at their launch party. Melissa gives the club owner the third degree about everything from lights to mics and dressing room space. Albie takes it all in stride because he realizes his primary responsibility is to please the black water people and Melissa's performance is, frankly, irrelevant to that. Oh, but then! Melissa announces that Joe wants to get tigers for her performance. Tigers! Cue all sorts of skeptical looks.
