So anyway, the episode wasn’t great, I didn’t think. (Edit: I’m retracting this. It was a good episode, I was just too distracted to notice first time around. Sorry.) I’m gonna give a quick and dirty synopsis of the plot so that y’all can enjoy the plethora of quotes, which were the best part of the ep, in my opinion. So here we go:
Mindy left voicemails on Danny and Dr. British’s phones about sex tapes, hoping they would actually pay attention. It works! It was a ploy to get them to answer to her initial query, about booking a room for some sort of lady-doctor conference, probably. It’s also revealed that one of Mindy’s receptionists, Shauna, was clubbing the night before, so Mindy decides that’s something she needs to do. So she talks Shauna into going clubbing with her. It becomes an office event and everyone shows up at the club (which used to be Danny’s bank. Hee). Mindy’s goal of the night is to get into the VIP section because that’s where the NBA players are.
It turns out that Danny can actually dance (see above). Despite the fact that he doesn’t like the music. Shauna keeps eying him and Mindy and the other receptionist think it’s kind of obvious she likes Danny. But Danny won’t dance all up on Shauna. He does offer to dance with Mindy, but she’s busy. Girl’s moving up to the VIP lounge!
The weird new nurse guy showed up (dressed like Han Solo) and he brought a duffel bag of club supplies (like a book of Sudoku in case the music is boring). However when he’s in the men’s room going through his body sprays and soaps he realizes he can make some money by acting as one of those super fancy bathroom concierge guys. Whatever, he’s getting tips.
Mindy got asked to the VIP room which can only end badly. The not!Shauna receptionist (Betsy) turns into a literal hanger-on and drunkenly drapes herself over Mindy just as she makes her entrance to the VIP lounge. Mindy gives her her cell phone and, to keep her busy, tells her to unsubscribe her from email newsletters, except for the shopping ones. Genius. I’m totally doing that next time I’m drunk-sittting.
Some douchey sports attorney was the guy that invited Mindy to the VIP area. He’s got an in with all of the NBA guys because he’s a sports attorney. Mindy clearly isn’t into him, but plays nice just enough to stay there. She does the logical thing and
makes-out interviews the PRO BASKETBALL PLAYERS about their favorite rom-coms. But I do kind of love it. They’re trying to talk Josh up to her, despite his obviously high levels of douche-itude. Mindy bails to pick up Betsy, telling the BBall boys she’ll meet them by the exit. One of them points out she forgot her pashmina (a word I’ve only ever heard on Friends. So I’m going to believe it’s a real thing. Ross never did correctly guess what it was.)
Mindy leaves with her coworkers in a limo Josh left for her to use and WHY? Why is Mindy taking the extra second to notice Danny getting in a cab with some hot chick? Why does that make me feel like she’s feeling regretful? Too soon, show! Neither of them have set the groundwork for this yet! There is not enough basis for me to believe that she and Danny could be an actual thing. Stop it! Bring back Seth Meyers – he doesn’t even have to wear plaid. Grr.
