Out on the deck, Peggy jokes that she has a couple of questions, and then unrolls the friggin' Old Testament, and then they have a good laugh. Her first question is about what he sees as his role as a partner. His answer? "To be a partner." Don't go checking the "Not A Moron" box off just yet, Peggy. How does he handle conflict? "In all honesty, I'm not a fighter," he says, calling himself more of a listener. She notes his BA in psychology, which she says will come in handy in this family. Jason laughs, probably trying to gauge just how much it's OK for him to laugh.
In an interview, Jason says he thinks she was impressed with his answers. Well, she'd be the only one. Inside, meanwhile, foxy Tori is talking to Jillian who is yammering on about the connection they have, and there's something about Jillian's voice lately that she always sounds like she's just holding back tears. Outside, Peggy talks about how Jillian had to have strength when she shouldn't have HAD to have strength, and Jason charmingly asks what advice she has to make a marriage last, and Peggy says life is a dance and you learn as you go, so I guess to all you newlyweds out there, just turn on a country music station for advice this good. In an interview, Jason says he better keep his dancing shoes on.
Jillian and her mom sit on a bed for a little heart to heart on what a saintly man Jason is, whose very touch cures cancer, and her mom thinks there's a lot of depth there, so I guess this must have been shot before he gave her a bunch of inane answers to her questions. And Jillian talks about the feelings she has, which she didn't expect, and now she wants to have a million cancer-curing babies who grow up to wander around shirtless. Meanwhile, Glen is talking to Jason instead of repeatedly punching him in the face. In an interview, Glen gets choked up about how strong his daughter has been, which is the running theme. Jillian! You're TOO GOOD for Jason! Stay in Kelowna and send him packing! "If Jillian gets married, you're going to see a pretty happy guy."
So then Jason sits around with the hosers making jokes about their Canadian accents, and I'd just like to point out that saying someone has a "Canadian accent" is like saying someone from the south or someone from the Bronx has an "American accent," and meanwhile Jillian says something was "seriously missing," which was her grandmother. And we don't know why granny's not there, but she isn't. And then she is! "I literally catapulted up off the couch," says Jillian, like what is it with this woman and misusing "literally" in regard to medieval weaponry?
Grandma says "oh my goodness" and "oh my god" over and over. In an interview, she says Jason is a gorgeous guy, and she'd been planning to take Jillian up to Northern Alberta to marry her off to a Ukrainian. Grandma has a present for Jason: Joe Boxer underwear with the Maple Leaf all over it. Yes, because nothing makes you more comfortable when meeting your girlfriend's family for the first time than Grandma giving you underwear. She puts it on his head, or she just can't tell the difference between that and his ass. She says he won't be sorry if he marries into the family because they're "the craziest bunch." In an interview, he says the funny genes definitely run in the family.
As Jason gets ready to go and DO THIS ALL OVER AGAIN THREE MORE TIMES, Jillian talks about how he did great. "I'm very proud of him and I would love to go to the next level with him," she says, adding that she's aware she could get her heart crushed, but the more she spends time with Jason, the more she falls in love with him. For his part, he calls her "unreal" and says, "To have someone in my life, why would I want to let that go?" BECAUSE THERE ARE THREE OTHER WOMEN. THAT'S WHY. THAT IS EXACTLY WHY. They kiss and Jason leaves, off to ingratiate himself into the lives of at least two more families he doesn't plan to join. "The bar is high after today's date," he says, adding that he can't imagine a date going any better than that.
But now we're in Grand Rapids, Mich., where Molly is waiting for Jason on the golf course. She says she hasn't seen Jason in a few days, so she's probably contracted scurvy by now. We talk again about how her parents' approval of her boyfriend is very important for her, because her last boyfriend strained her relationship with her dad, so she's not going to date someone they don't like. "If it's a no-go for her family, I'm sure it's a no-go for Molly," says Jason. I still don't understand this. I mean, if they didn't like the guy because he was an asshole, shouldn't the goal be to not date assholes? Because if he was a good guy and they still didn't like him, then I wouldn't exactly be depending on their approval.
So anyway, they play like two holes of golf, and Molly calls it "sexy" that he knows how to golf for god only knows what reason, and then it's off to meet the family: Mike, Maryann, Katie and Nick.
So they pull up at the house, and Molly has a very huggy reunion with her parents, and they all go inside and talk about GOLF for about five hours, like maybe Molly secretly wants Jason to shoot himself out of sheer boredom. And then he says the day Ty learned to crawl, he took him to the golf course to crawl around on the putting green, which I'm sure the other golfers must have really appreciated, and then the mom is hauling out these HATS for some reason, like she has on this giant floppy orange foam hat, and she gives Molly a tiara to wear, and she gives Jason some sort of native headdress, and he thinks that makes him TONTO for god's sake, and Molly's dad puts on a hat that looks like a foaming mug of beer. "Leave it to Maryann to embarrass me in front of Jason." I can't imagine calling my mom by her first name.
And then Molly's sister Katie and Katie's boyfriend/husband/parole officer/I don't know Nick shows up, and Jason is all good-naturedly throwing hats on them, showing what an amazing good sport he is. In an interview, Maryann says Molly has never talked about having feelings for a guy before. "It resonated with me, and I just wanted to know who he was." So she takes Jason into some kind of little art room where she gives him a can of pencil crayons and tells him to draw a picture that reminds him of Molly's face in a special moment. Here's hoping he has the good sense not to draw Molly with her eyes closed, mouth open, tongue sticking out. Here's also hoping Molly's parents don't watch earlier episodes with the closed-captioning on, so they don't have to see "[moaning]" on the screen while their daughter spends the night in a tent with a guy she just met.
Meanwhile, Jason apparently heard Maryann say "Please paint my daughter as if she were Jack Nicholson as the Joker in Batman," because that's what he does, and he paints her with long straight brown hair, and promises never to "dabble in art" and I would much rather he dabble in art than continue to dabble in television, and then Maryann says she doesn't want to give the impression that they're always "this crazy" like YOU TALKED ABOUT GOLF FOR TEN HOURS, LADY, and then everyone's hanging out in the living room drinking and then Jason is apologizing for his art skills, because he had to give Molly the long brown hair because otherwise she looked like a boy. And then the date is over, and ... really? That's it? Over already? Not that I'm complaining. No, wait, all I do is complain. You know what I mean. Molly talks to her dad, who says all he wants is for her not to cry in the limo if she doesn't make it to the end. Thanks for the pep talk, dad.
Molly says she knew everything would change once she brought him home to meet the family: "They did love him, so
