This week's idiotic "here's what you need to know" voice-over is delivered by Romy the Platypus, and it's all about her attempts to get J.B. into the sack and how they don't succeed. Sarah, however, managed to lock lips with Scraggle last week.
While she helps Sarah get dressed for a date with Scraggle, the Platypus complains that J.B. didn't really speak to her over Thanksgiving. Sarah tells Platypus to just call him, and Platypus tells her that she already did and "anyway, I've been trying to make a date with him, but he's been so weird, and that's where you sort of come in." Sarah glares at her and asks, "How do I 'sort of come in'?"
Same Bat Time, different Bat Station -- Scraggle is also getting ready for the date. Joss, who is there keeping him company, says, "I mean, she's what? Twenty?" Scraggle replies, "Almost twenty-one. Your point?" Joss snickers and asks when the last time was that Scraggle dated someone with a curfew. Scraggle isn't amused and says it's just dinner and a concert. Joss notices a "nasty stain" on Scraggle's shirt.
Back at the Platypus Mound, Sarah comes stumping out of the bedroom with two different shoes on, and a top that pretty much told me that this whole parade of clothes was just another way of getting Jennifer Love Hewitt in and out of revealing styles. The top is one of those corset-bodice things that were once a part of evening gowns back in the seventeenth century, the same corset things that made women faint and caused them to die in labour because their innards were so squished up, but forget all that -- the most important thing is that it gives JLH another chance to expose her dinners to the world. Well, the world of five people watching the show. Sarah is being really bitchy and saying that she doesn't want Platypus to tag along because "hello, we'd like to be alone!" but Platypus tells her it would be good for J.B. to see how a "normal couple" interacts "on a date-date." Platypus suggests that Sarah could "nudge him along" by telling him how great he and Platypus look together and how beautiful their children would be. Sarah, admiring the way her dinners are overflowing the corset top and sucking in her cheeks at the same time, says, "Romy, high school is over." You could've fooled me -- Sarah thinks she's back in high school and playing the prom queen in every episode. Platypus continues to plead, and it turns out that she has already invited J.B. on Sarah and Scraggle's date.
