Eugene watches Kelly Jo copter in from the great icy beyond, waving at her during descent and confessionalizing everything they have in common: "We share a common sense of humor. We have very similar family lives." We both like soup. What he really wants to spend the day figuring out is, "How compatible are we in a relationship sense?" Oh, come off it, Barfcissus. She's you in silk panties. Of course you like being around her. But it won't last. You'll get as tired of you as we all have.
Certain problematic production decisions make us all go a little Estella's dad, as Eugene lengthily meets Kelly Jo at the still churning helicopter. They kiss (natch) hello as she climbs out of the vehicle, all the while confessionalizing that she wants this date to leave a "lasting impression." If you mean "convince Eugene that he should be yours forever," Kelly Jo, you're wrong. If you mean "leaving a bad taste in our mouths," you're right. If you mean "leaving a bad taste in your mouth, but for an entirely different reason far too gross ever to explain fully here," you're also right. Kelly Jo admits to us that she wants Eugene to be her husband, as the two of them hold hands while walking away from the chopper, into the never-setting sunset.
