So it's over to her friend Stephanie's house, to meet her and husband Joe, and a nameless friend from Oregon and her husband Jason, and two adorable daughters, Corinne and Leah. So there's a little bit of hanging out in the living room, and Jason remarks on the girls being drawn to Melissa, and how it's "literally a gift" to be that good with children.
Back from commercial, Melissa is saying that she's disappointed that -- HOLY SHIT WE GET IT, YOU WANTED JASON TO MEET YOUR PARENTS, TALK ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.
So the friends are all having dinner, and then they talk about how they never get to meet her boyfriends, and how maybe she didn't want her friends to meet them. In an interview, Stephanie says, "I don't really want to say that Melissa's past boyfriends have used and abused her, but in a way it seems they have," and I am getting really unsettled by all this. "Used and abused" her? What does that mean? In an interview, Joe, who looks like he's wearing eyeliner, jokes that they want to marry her off because they're sick of the fifth wheel hanging around all the time.
So in lieu of chatting with her parents to see what they think of the boyfriend who dates a bunch of women at once, Melissa asks her friends what they "think of the boy," adding, "I really like the boy." Why? Because he makes her feel "like, worthy" and "like, beautiful." Aw. That's, like, touching! They all hug.
Elsewhere, the men are ruining a perfectly good game of pool by talking Melissa's past relationships, especially the long one she had in which the guy would rather hang out in Dallas with his friends than be with her, and it took them a lot of work to convince her that she was better than that.
