The next day there is more Bret Mail, this time announcing that Mindy and Jamie are going on a double date. The mail says that where they're going the wind will blow through their hair and danger could be a friend. Danger is a friend to us if either of them gets impaled. Jamie is psyched that she gets to go on two double dates. She thinks that Bret is feeling her, which feels really good. It doesn't feel so good to Taya, though, who actually DOES channel Farrah and Ashley to call Mindy and Jamie lame. She has none of Farrah and Ashley's panache, but I appreciate the sentiment.
Bret greets Jamie and Mindy, who are wearing their finest cut-off denim. Bret explains that he wanted Jamie to come on the date because he still needs to get to know her, and also because if Mindy gets in one of her funks, he's got someone else to talk to. Today the girls have one of the most romantic dates of all time waiting for them -- swamp boat gator date! Bret says, "And you wonder why I'm single." No, actually, we don't. Bret makes out first with Jamie and then with Mindy. In the gator boat! That poor driver. That poor gator. When you live in a swamp you think you've seen it all, and then: this. Banjo music plays as the boat pulls to shore where a picnic is waiting. Bret pours some champagne and tries to stir up some conversation. He asks Mindy what kinds of things she likes to do on dates. She likes to go on swamp boat gator dates. It reminds her of the beaver pond, I guess. Bret says that when he's with Mindy and she's in a great mood, it just feels right. Right in an itchy sort of way.
Jamie jokes that she'd rather be on a private jet. She interviews that she's feeling Bret, but is wondering if he's really looking for something serious. She asks him if he wants to jump right into a serious thing or take it more slowly. Bret evades the question by asking her what she's looking for. Jamie is looking to date rather than jump into, say, marriage. She tells Bret that they still need to get to know each other better. Bret loves that Jamie is unafraid to say what she wants.
