Another business meeting. Blah blah blah we-better-do-somethingcakes. Sarah says she's going to get on her rollerblades and check out bagel shops, juice bars and movie theaters, since those are the currently popular ideas the losers -- I mean roomies -- have. Joe says his mind is on other things at the moment. BOOM. BOOM. BOOM. Water ripples appear on the surface of a glass of water. Ick must be close by! Well, she's in NYC, but her presence is close by. I can feel it.
The stupid Gin Blossoms play their stupid "Follow You Down" song as Louis drives Flora around town in a stupid convertible. There's a dog in the car too, wearing a stupid bandanna. They go on a disgusting date. Louis asks if "Michael" is coming down and Flora snickers. Ha ha, "Michael," how droll. She corrects him and asks, "Are you not going to be mature about this? He's bringing my car down." God, that annoys me. She has such a pair on her. Balls, I mean. Then, another lie: "He can't accept [being broken up], I have to be nice. I can't be like, I'm dating my boss." Oh, no, the truth, how would that look? In a sit-down, Flora explains, "I like them both, so I have to keep it a secret." Just how stupid is Flora? This is going to be on TELEVISION. The whole WORLD will see what you do. It is NOT a secret. Then at the disgusting date of grossness, Flora makes Louis "promise" Mitchell's visit won't "jeopardize our relationship." WHAT a JOKE.
And now for the oh-so-dated faux Ricki Lake segment of the show, where Cynthia, Melissa, Sarah and Flora sit around and discuss Flora's relationship. "Why do you stay with him?" "I'm such a fool; I'm 100 percent certain he's fucking around on me right now." Pot, kettle, you've met before. Joe sits there silently and says in voice-over, "Flora needs people to be firm with her." Yeah, she needs discipline. Put her over your tiny knee, Joe. Cyn says, "All you're gonna be is fucked!" Melissa repeats the oft-repeated phrase, "No one's gonna respect you until you..." I plug my ears, LA LA LA LA LA!!! That comment is like the humidity conversation that I hear every freaking summer. It's TI-RED. So stop.
Joe gets on a plane to NYC. Godspeed.
Flora comes running onto the house. Louis trails behind. Flora asks excitedly, "Did Mitchell call? I saw my jeep on the beach!" Louis says goodbye, and Flora pretends to cry. "Don't leeeave me, boo hoo." Louis is, like, running out the door: "See you in three days." Flora haggles him down to two. Who is betting Louis has another girlfriend he's running off to? That's a smart bet. They kiss and then Louis is outta there. Flora runs up the stairs, shrieking, "What am I to do?" Who wants to go first? I can start: Lose the white jeans. In a sit-down Flora explains, "I play with fire all the time, and I do get burned." Sizzle away, Flora. Then she gnaws on her nails. Oy, we GET IT.
