Then Neil and Mike start talking about their relationship. Let me just break it down by having them come to the tacit realization that they hate each other because they're international mirror images of each other from either side of the Atlantic. Mike has stupid '80s hair. Neil has stupid '80s hair. Mike has a profitless hobby: racing. Neil has a profitless hobby: music. Mike loves being an American for all the wrong reasons. Neil loves being a Briton for all the wrong reasons. But -- I have to say -- Mike is the house idiot of record. But Neil is the true idiot; at least Mike knows he's an idiot.
B-roll of London at night. Kat, Sharon, and -- I think -- Hannah the Horrified go to a poetry reading. It turns out to be more of an old people talent show. Lots of local "color." So then Kat is forced to go on stage and perform and she totally does a Brenda Walsh from first season of 90210 where instead of actually reading a poem at a poetry reading, she "reads" a biographical essay about starting over in a new town, and all the crazy-looking poetry people are won over by this spunky girl. But then the essay becomes this monologue, and there's all this angsty shit about bonds between mother and daughter drying up and burning away. The hippies kneeling in the basement space go crazy with applause. Sharon adds an interview about how proud she was of Kat for going up there because Kat was "so nervous." You see, it's moments of "self-assurance" like those that Kat Ogden will take with her from her time abroad, according to Kat in a voice-over. She also loves the fact that she got to know London. Because there's a lot of history there. And because pubs are really fun. And there are lots of them.
Speaking of History, Mike has all of sudden developed an interest in London history. This involves going to touristy places and reading lots of plaques. These sightseeing outings make Mike feel more "at one" with the city. Jay loves London, too. Or so he claims in a voice-over. Jacinda claims in an interview that there's more to London than one can see on the surface. To prove this, Jacinda is shown talking to a couple of unattractive old British people on the street. Then they show a flashback of her tickling Neil's "bum."
