The 350-strong military contingent marches past the roommates.
“History is being made in front of my eyes,” says Sam, who says that her dad was in the Navy for 28 years. Nate enthusiastically works parade-goers and flirts with random blondes on behalf of the House of Blues, while Zach and Ashley cower in the booth, because glitter is inherently dangerous and will give you dysentery. “I haven’t felt this way, since, ever,” says Frank, who has clearly forgotten the first two episodes of this season, where he was punching walls and wailing over Alexandra and hating on her boyfriend Byron.
Anyone who questioned "the Puck" (his references to himself in the third person bolster the case against him) was deemed a fraud, a weak patsy and conformist, and part of what makes Puck so frustrating, too, is that he initially had a salutary effect on sheltered conservative Rachel.
They flirted, they laughed, they tried on wigs together, and Rachel began to question some of her own ways of thinking.
Nate says that he isn’t concerned with losing anything because, at this point, he has nothing to lose, and he brushes them off.
The episode closes with the resident grouch Zach admitting that “Michael brings out the best in Frank.” Zach and Ashley accompany Frank to Hillcrest, San Diego’s gayborhood, and appear to have a good time.“They are making huge, huge strides to come around,” says Frank.
It was a charming odd coupling, at first; then Rachel called Puck on his rude shit, he considered that a betrayal, and that was that.
Puck, unreconstructed horse's ass, didn't need crutches like booze or physical assault to get himself ejected from the house, either.
Frank Sweeney may have experienced some relationship ups and downs during his "Real World" days -- but the erstwhile San Diego roomie's love life is now very much set in stone: The man known for his "Frankouts" is engaged! Fittingly, congratulatory comments began flowing in from some of Frank's one-time cast members: Ashley Kelsey couldn't help but weigh in with a simple "What?!?!?!?!Frank is concerned that Trevor and Travis are taking advantage of Nate and that Nate may be losing sight of the original goal of his charity.Mike has had experience working with charities, so the two sit down with Nate and tell him to consult a lawyer.Sam and her lady friend and Frank and Mike walk over to the booth and canoodle, which makes Zach uncomfortable.I’d like to point out that Zach and Ashley have never even kissed at this point.
