This episode opens up with a hilarious scene of Mindy trying to be sexy for Casey. She gets the idea to cover herself with whip cream in the form of a one piece bathing suit. Their sexy Skype time is ruined however by hungry ants that are gunning for her whip cream!
Back at the office everyone greets Mindy as ‘Big L,’ and her office has been completely transformed by Dr. Paul Leotard. He refuses to give up the office so she asks Jeremy to fire him, but he refuses due to Paul’s success with her patients. Mindy is then moved into a closet where she burns her hair on a hot exposed pipe.
Jeremy notices that Danny has been leaving the office a lot lately so he follows him. It turns out that he is playing basketball to get over Christina with a bunch of divorced men that includes Mindy’s ex, Tom and Kris Humphries! Mindy could use her own support group at the moment because she feels so secluded in the closet where she misses sunlight, her patients, and her coworkers.
After work the crew goes out to the bar, and Mindy creates a plan to kick Paul out of the practice. She finds out from Morgan that Paul is a light weight unlike her. She then calls for a doctor shots off to get him drunk. She makes a bet with Paul that if she wins the shots off, she can get her office and nickname back. Mindy wins with an entire loaf of bread in her stomach and high tolerance on her side!
Mindy is confronted by her ex, Tom, and he drunkenly accuses Mindy of searching for a hookup while her fiancé is away making everything very awkward. Mindy leaves and takes sloppy Paul back to Danny and Christina’s apartment. Probably due to some tipsiness (and the fact that she can’t resist his cuteness), she plants peck on his lips! He however was not drunk enough to let it happen and screamed for help, making her run away.
Christina later greets Paul, who is still waiting outside the apartment door and lets him in looking suspicious. The next day he comes into work and tells Mindy that he had sex with Christina. When Danny confronts Paul and Mindy in the hallway Paul quits out of guilt. To get to the bottom of what is happening Danny pulls them aside, but accuses them of having sex. Paul goes with it to cover his secret! After things get heated between Mindy and Danny, Paul tells the truth. He admits that he had sex with Christina, and Danny punches him in the face. The fight is broken up by Morgan, but Danny is still angry and asks for Paul to be fired. After Jeremy refuses his request (man he really likes Paul) he quits and walks out.
Mindy goes to Danny’s basketball practice to console him and get him back to work. It was very hard for her to focus on her mission because Kris Humphries was only a few feet away. After a few touching words from Mindy and Kris (he reveals that he keeps watching Kardashian reality shows because he’s just not over it), Danny decides to let it all go and come back to work. Paul in the end writes a touching good bye letter to everyone, and now we know that Mindy will be able to get her patients and her office back.
So Mindy fans what was your favorite part of this episode? Do you think that Danny will get over Christina quicker now that she slept with Paul? What do you think about that kiss between Mindy and Paul?
