Now it's the Sunday before Mardi Gras, says the on-screen text. Matt is playing pool while Melissa and Julie relax on the couch. Matt asks them if they have ever seen as many gay men as they have in the past two days. Julie says no, since Danny was apparently the first gay man she ever saw, ever. As far as she knows. Melissa says she was just thinking the same thing, and starts listing off the two guys who came to pick Danny up, and "the nineteen last night." Was she keeping a sexuality scorecard? How did she know there were exactly nineteen? Matt adds that the "chefs and servants came up on him" and does a mincing, stereotypically gay walk. Have I mentioned that I hate Matt? I do. Matt thinks they were "all flirty and stuff" and that he told them that he was straight, so they should "just quit now." Oh, yeah, Matt. You are so hot that gay men cannot even keep their hands off you. I'm sure they weren't either (a) looking for camera time or (b) messing with your über-Christian self. Julie says that one of them told her Matt was just confused. Matt says that guy must be confused because he wants Matt. What the fuck ever, dude. Melissa says, "They love you." I sit there and try to figure out if the editors meant that as comic relief, or more fuel for the Matt-haters. Possibly both.
Danny walks out of the house with a group of men. I hope Melissa got a count on how many of them were gay, since she seems to be keeping track. Danny voice-overs that he and "Wes" and some friends went to Oz (in a limo!), and that he has been "very tempted this weekend to be bad" and it's "very hard at this point." I think he means that the situation is hard. Get your minds out of the gutter! Wes kisses Danny on the cheek. Danny voice-overs that he is proud of himself for resisting temptation in situations where it would be very easy to lose control. Famous last words, General Custer. We see more shots of Danny getting hugs and kisses from random boys, and then some more floats go by.
In an interview, David says that Mardi Gras is about "letting go." Then we get to see that David meant letting go of his pride and self-respect. David has a blanket wrapped around him and is talking to some chick, who is sitting at the computer desk. David is mumbling something about "driving her home" and that chick can leave if she wants. The on-screen text informs us that the computer desk chick is a "friend of David's 'date,' who is waiting upstairs." I love that they put "date" in quotation marks. Friend says that she'll just hang out there. Then we see David getting into bed, and apparently his "date" doesn't want to show her face because she's hiding under the covers. David voice-overs that when he's "hooking up with somebody," it's "just a physical thing." As opposed to when others hook up mentally, I guess. Jamie goes to make a phone call, using the phone on the computer desk, and makes awkward conversation with Friend, who is still sitting there playing Minesweeper or something. David voice-overs that if Matt's in the room, he still has to "get [his] groove on." David continues, by saying that "as long as there's no shame in her game," he's going to go ahead and do his thing. Ew! All you see is David's comforter moving around, due to the people HAVING SEX under it, and then Matt lying in his bed with his pillow over his head. God, who knew I would ever feel sorry for Matt? I don't know why he doesn't do what I used to do when my college roommate would start getting busy with her boyfriend while I was in the room: yell out, "I'm awake, you know!" Of course, my roommate had a modicum of respect, which David clearly does not possess. That is just nasty. Nas-tay.
