It was a mini-"Bridesmaids" reunion as Ben Falcone came to "Up All Night" (Thu., 9:30 p.m. EST on NBC) as one half of a cool new gay couple Reagan and Chris were desperate to befriend. As it turns out, though, Justin (Falcone) and Lawrence (recent Oscar-winner Nat Faxon) were just as eager to try them out. There is truth to the crazy need to find and have couple friends once in a couple. There's that familiarity that comes from sharing that relationship status.
But relationship status wasn't all these couples shared, as they discovered on a double date to the bowling alley. Fans of the show have already seen the ugly side of Reagan's crazy competitive nature, and she was matched barb for barb by Justin, who was just as petty and childish at the outcome of the match.
Meanwhile, Chris and Lawrence both tried their best to calm their partners, wanting to avoid conflict at all costs. While the double date didn't end well, the couples reconnected and realized that they could put this behind them. After all, they're just people and now they've seen a bit of the ugly side. But they decided they liked each other, warts and all.
That was, until a playdate at Reagan and Chris' house revealed that Justin and Lawrence believe in letting their child basically run wild, not even reigning him in when he was throwing things all over the place and jumping off the furniture. So Reagan and Chris gently gave them some parenting advice, and again things seemed to be going okay. Until Justin and Lawrence turned around and advised them that perhaps they have their baby too penned up most of the time.
That was the final straw. Friendship. Over. While was hypocritical, sure, but they self-justified, so all is well. Right?
