Synopsis


Patrick and Dom help Agustin as he loads his possessions into a car bound for Frank's house. The conversation among the three focuses on Patrick's budding relationship with Richie. "Can you believe our little brother's getting himself a cholo boyfriend?" Agustin asks. "Who said anything about a boyfriend?" Patrick replies. "Maybe I just wanna get myself a f*ck buddy." Agusti­n warns him: "You know he'll probably be uncut if he's a real Mexican. Are you prepared for that?"

On the way to Oakland, Agusti­n tells the boys about he and Frank's three-way with Scotty. "All relationships end up opening in the end whether you like it or not," Agusti­n postulates, "so why not be honest about it instead of cheating?" Patrick is surprised, but Dom abstains from the debate about it. After leaving Agustin at his new home, Dom and Patrick take bets on how long Frank and Agustin's living situation will last.

Back at his apartment, Patrick turns Agustin's old room into an office and sees that Agustin left a message on the wall above the fireplace: "Agusti­n & Patrick 4 Ever xxx." Later, while working at home, Patrick types "uncut latin cocks" into Google and peruses the images.

Dom meets up with his ex Ethan at Starbucks, where the two chat about their breakup eight years ago. Ethan apologizes and says it would make him very happy if they could "start again. I really want us to be friends." Dom seems flabbergasted. Later, at home, he goes on Grindr and invites a young guy over for sex. Afterwards, Dom tells Doris that he didn't ask Ethan to repay the money that he had given him years ago for drug rehab, a conversation that ultimately leads Dom to meet up with Ethan again. "The thing I realized," Dom says, "is that you didn't deserve any of that time, not a single f*cking minute." He asks for the money, but Ethan says the money wasn't a loan -- it was a gift to get sober. "You can't blame me," Ethan tells Dom, "You can only blame yourself." Dom ends the encounter by yelling that Ethan is a "methhead motherf*cker" in front of his ex's clients.

While Agusti­n and Frank stay in for the evening, Patrick meets Richie for their second date at Doc's Clock. With the drinks flowing, Richie talks about his family, while Patrick avoids any personal questions. "I'm gonna get you drunk tonight," Patrick tells Richie. "It's gonna happen." Patrick, however, is the one getting drunk. Patrick talks to Richie about how comfortable he is with sex and then buys him a shot before they dance to Cazwell's "Rice and Beans" and Erasure's "A Little Respect."

Patrick takes Richie back to his apartment, where he's visibly surprised to discover that Richie is not uncut. Richie finds Patrick's response unsettling and leaves in the middle of the encounter. "I think we're looking for different things," Richie says. A disappointed Patrick makes his Ultimate Mac and Cheese and calls Agustin to discuss his terrible evening.
