Eric tells us how happy Missy makes him, how her smile makes him smile, blah blah fucking blah. He and his sister and her boyfriend, go out to dinner. Eric rearranges the seating so that he can see Missy's eyes.
Dumb hunter's cap. Eric tells us how he doesn't know if he's in love, but he thinks about Missy All the Time and how Even Songs on The Radio make him think of her, so maybe he is in love.
Missy in Eric's mom's kitchen. Eric's sister, I think, is telling them how Missy passed out in the shower, how she passes out all the time. Missy's giggling as if it's Victorian England and fainting is still considered an accomplishment of extreme femininity.
Eric and Missy ostensibly being cute. Gag. Me. Eric's interview. He talks about how Missy was having a problem last week, what with feeling faint and all, and how he's really worried about her.
Kevin and Eric in a cab. He talks about waiting for a call from Missy, and tells Kevin about Missy's fainting problems. We see Kevin and Eric going to Madison Square Garden to watch the Knicks. Kevin's voice-over tells us that Eric's probably most comfortable with him at this point, and that they'd worked out some of their problems, or were at a level where they were comfortable with them.
Eric and Kevin switch off on voice-overs. Basically they go to the locker room after the game courtesy of Eric's dad, and they get to see Dennis Rodman, and they get to meet Isaiah Thomas. Eric introduces them and mentions that he probably knows his dad, a referee. Eric and Kevin are both obviously so thrilled at this, and it's really sweet, to see ONE unmanipulated, genuine moment. Eric sees his dad and talks about not seeing him that often. We see a little on-camera interaction with Eric and his dad, and it's the closest I've come to feeling sympathy for Eric, because Eric is trying so hard to get his dad to respond, and his dad seems like a very distant guy. Eric shrugs in his interview and says, "You gotta just take what you get, and make the best of it."
Phone rings. More Prince. Eric and Missy on the phone. Apparently the doctor thinks Missy's fainting fits are coming from overexertion in the gym.
Next episode: We find out Julie's a virgin. She dates this incredibly gross Suave-o. Kevin appoints himself as Julie's guardian angel, and we see his girlfriend. Awww.
