George serves dinner to Rico and Nate, as Maya sits on Nate's lap soaking in the dysfunction of it all. Rico asks, "These are mushrooms?" Uh, you're welcome, Rico. George explains that they're "giant Portobellos. The filet mignon of fungi," and Rico childishly follows up, "If you wanted a filet mignon, why not just eat a filet mignon?" But he kind of adds a "g" at the end of the word both times he says it, like it's the gerund form of steak. And besides, hating George was so two, three, and four episodes ago. He cried, and now we like him, right? Anyway, George explains that the meat industry and other agribusiness is unsustainable in this country, and Nate jumps in to agree, "Meat isn't the problem. It's how far away from the table the food, whatever it is, is produced. If it's produced locally, it's not just fresher, it's less wasteful." Hippie check! You fail. George looks on approvingly because despite our surface differences, deep down we're all the same. In other news, I've not yet once had cause to use the word "agribusiness" in any of my America's Next Top Model recaps. So you really do learn something from watching this, don't you? Does this qualify as our kitchen-table political statement of the week? Rico keeps it going, saying he heard that "mushrooms are grown in dung." George notes that "everything organic is grown in dung." Like your son's dislike for you? That seemed to be pretty organic. David enters then and they invite him to stay for dinner, but he announces, "I'm going home. To my husband." Hee. "I'm gonna go home and sleep with my wife!" Name that movie. It's a good one.
Some weird dude I don't think we've ever seen before is talking on the phone, pitching a movie about William Howard Taft, while another guy smokes pot on the couch. This is a scenario that only the presence of Brenda could tie together. And there she is. Brenda is there to buy weed, so when the gentleman goes to retrieve it for her, the dude on the couch silently offers Brenda the bong. She takes a huge hit and exhales because if she didn't she wouldn't smell anything lot pot later.
