So then, after a commercial break, Jay is like a dog with a bone about the "Hannah" issue. He grills Mike about his intentions toward Hannah, to which Mike responds that he's never promised Hannah a serious relationship. So once again, not only do we have to sit through Mike getting laid, we also have to watch him hold the lady in question at arm's length. I don't know what's creepier: Jay's codependent concern for Hannah's feelings, or Mike's aloof-stud act. Then we see the park on a beautiful day. Mike and Hannah are rollerblading together. There's not a lot of chemistry between Mike and Hannah. Oh sure, Bunim-Murray has brought out all the guns to make you think otherwise: the R&B lite FM groovin' soundtrack, the intercutting to shots of other couples who have chemistry frolicking in the park and of course the forced smiles on the faces of Mike and Hannah. But Mike and Hannah aren't selling it to me here. Hannah keeps hanging all over Mike but that's mostly because she can't really rollerblade.
Jay is like a lover spurned. He sits around with Kat, like they're a couple of girls giving each other manicures and home perms, and deconstructs Mike's and Hannah's relationship. "She had to like him an awful lot to go after him in the first place," says Jay. "It sucks to like somebody and have them be like 'eh' about you," adds Kat sipping some hot beverage from a big mug. Back on Mike and Hannah's date, Hannah has fallen down. "So are you going to fall a little or a lot?" says Mike in a condescending manner. Oooh! Subtext! At some point Hannah starts getting scared as she's going down a hill so Mike calls her a "wuss." Later, he makes jokes about the idea of her skating into the pond and falling in. Charming. Jay agonizes some more with Sharon about Mike and Hannah. Mike and Hannah keep skating and trading insults.
Kat has another man to toy with. She is shown beaming and talking so some guy on the phone about helping him buy a motorbike and being his "bike chick." She explains in an interview that Sebastian is a friend of a friend of hers from New York who is going to be in London for a week before he goes off to Israel to be a bartender at Planet Hollywood. Wow, this guy sounds glamorous already. Kat runs into Sharon's room to gush all about her date with Sebastian and how she feels "like a little girl." The day of the date arrives, and Sebastian enters the house. He's nothing to write home about, but Kat is clearly in awe of his worldly ways. "He makes me feel so ordinary," says Kat in an interview. Sebastian and Mike are introduced; Mike remarks in an interview that Sebastian desperately wanted to impress everybody. Sebastian eventually wears out his welcome by pontificating about some movie that wasn't faithful to the book on which it was based, rubbing his pool-playing skills in everybody's faces, and forcing everyone watch him juggle bottles of vinegar and liquor. "It was like I was supposed to be some big boner or something," says Mike. No comment. Finally Kat and Sebastian get on the back of Sebastian's motorbike and ride off to see London at night. "I had such a fantastic time," says Kat, but then explains that nothing else really could happen since he was only in town for a week. London is pretty at night, seen from a motorcycle. I'll give them that.
