Across town, it's 2006 again as Brody meets Spencer at a vegan restaurant, which Brody deems "cute" (though not as "cute" as arthritis, I'm sure). For real, though... What? There are, like, 45 elements of weirdness operating simultaneously here. Spencer launches into the bullshit spiel he drafted and re-drafted over the last two years. Brody tells him to cut the bullshit, asking what's with the desperate message, like he was dying or something. Spencer unloads all of the various elements of his self-wrought misery. Brody tells him to put up or shut up; that he's a 25-year-old man-boy who should either grow up or revert to his old party boy antics. (Guess which side Brody is lobbying for.) Either way, the twain cannot meet.
Back in Crested Butte-hole, Darlene and Heidi meet stepfather Tim for dinner. Apropos of nothing, Darlene brings up a kid named Colby, who was Heidi's first boyfriend. She brings him up like he is this distant memory from an idyllic past that she can find again -- if only she would believe in the magic! Needless to say, Darlene has totally set-up a meet-up between Heidi and Mr. Jack Cheese. He materializes as if from nowhere, and I instantly want Heidi to elope with him. Such is the power of the cheese -- and a legit break from the Pratt beard. Even Heidi has to laugh at the contrived nature of all this. And this is Heidi. Her life is one contrivance heaped upon another.
