Tonight, we had a couple of Halloween episodes, and a bit of plot. Let get to it!
Sabrina has a couple of gay friends, and she and Jimmy hang out with them, causing Jimmy to feel the need to understand gay culture a bit more.
He and Burt go to a gay bar, and Burt enjoys himself way more that you would expect a straight man to. He goes back on Halloween dressed as a mailman from Village people(yes, he’s aware there is no mailman), leaving Virginia at home to pass out candy due to her Bunco club being cancelled. She does end up at the club dressed as a guy, though, and it is super cute.
Jimmy and Sabrina, though, have a much different Halloween.
First, Sabrina’s friends ask her to donate an egg and surrogate for them. Jimmy doesn’t like this nearly as much as Sabrina does, but fails in verbalizing his uncomfortableness. Sabrina decides to go through with it, while Jimmy complains to his parents. They remind him that their family is not so good with the whole word thing, and have him use a little subterfuge to make the gay friends not want a kid.
He takes their advice, and Hope over to the friend’s house, and leaves her there after a faux emergency, all while sneakily keeping her binky on him, causing Hope to scream bloody murder as he leaves, and presumably the rest of the evening.
Unfortunately for Jimmy, Sabrina finds out what he is trying to do, and is PISSED. They go over to the friend’s house, and are super surprised to hear no screaming Hope. Turns out, the gay guys are way more prepared to be parents than Jimmy ever will be, and managed to wean Hope off her nook with a ring pop, and get her to sleep. Cause Hope would definitely have fallen asleep after a big chunk of sugar like that.
Anyway, the guys decide that they want Jimmy to sperm donate, but no longer have Sabrina surrogate, to take away the weirdness. Jimmy is totally into it, but Sabrina is having the same weird feelings Jimmy was having before. Jimmy actually does the right thing when his fiancé said she doesn’t like something he’s doing, and calls the whole thing off. It’s super cute, and made better with the fact that Jimmy is green…not with envy, but with Hulk makeup.
This was basically a filler episode, there was no plot mechinations at all, but it was still pretty fun.
I got some lines, too!
Burt, to Jimmy, after he tells him about Sabrina’s plan to surrogate: “So, you agreed to someone freeloading on your fiance’s uterus?”
Burt, to Virginia as he’s about to go to the gay bar: “I’d bring you with me, but all the other married guys’ wives don’t even know they’re there”
Jimmy, as he’s about to tell the guys he can’t be their sperm donor: “I can’t believe I have to deny people my sperm…there was time I couldn’t give the stuff away.”
