The Mindy Project: 04x05, Stay At Home MILF | Stay At Home

In this week’s episode, Mindy learns how to be a “Stay at home Mominista” and a few other hard lessons.

Let’s recap this week’s Mindy Project:

Mindy starts off by telling us that being a stay at home mom is the best. She seeps all day and hangs out with Leo --

 until Danny comes home and asks her why she didn’t clean or cook dinner.

She asks him what a stay at home mom is meant to do, and its pencil-snapping tough. However, our Mindy is always one for a challenge, so she looks up stay at home mom blogs so she can be a Stay at Home MILF.

Or, as Danny says, a Mom he likes to French.

Oh, Danny.

So, Danny goes off to the practice, while Mindy cooks, cleans and listens to an irritating internet animation that seems to have everything in life in order.

That computer smash was warranted.

Meanwhile, at the office, Jeremy has installed an intercom, and Jody is looking for a date for Collette for a family wedding. Collette asks Morgan to pretend to be her boyfriend, as she hasn’t informed her brother that she is a lesbian yet. Morgan gets all starry-eyed --he has never been asked out before -- and accepts the proposal.

Meanwhile, Mindy is trying to keep up with appearances, and, when Danny is less than grateful over the hard work she put in, she decides he can be Stay at Home Dan for the day, and she will go back to work.

Mindy performs a C-section with Jody, and it goes really well and re-ignites her passion for her work. She asks Collette for advice on how to tell Danny that she doesn’t want to be a stay at home mom. Collette tells her Danny loves her and he’ll understand, and Mindy gives her a knowing look.

Morgan bursts in and professes that Jody is getting suspicious, so he and Collette should get more into their PDA. Collette screams “HELL NO” and announces over the intercom that she is a lesbian.

Collette feels great about herself, but she hears her brother’s scream and runs out. He asks if it is true, and she confirms it. He tells her he loves her, but is sad that he won’t have a brother-in-law with whom to cook BBQs, and she laughs and says that she’ll be his brother-in-law and that they’ll both have trophy wives and hold their handbags for them as they shop.

Mindy works up the courage to tell Danny how she feels and comes home to an immaculate house and a home-cooked meal. She confesses to Leo that she hopes he’s like his dad and good at everything -- until she realises that Danny has produced a perfectly folded bed-sheet — hotel quality.

Danny finally admits that he had help from Annette, as we had seem him earlier knocking pies, being late for appointments, smashing milk bottles and reportedly crying to his mother for help.

Bless.

Mindy tells him it is okay, and they each now know how tough a stay at home parent’s life can be. Mindy is about to tell Danny that she wants to go back to work when he gets a call from his little sister telling him their dad had a heart attack. Danny decides to fly out to the West Coast but worries about work. Mindy tells him she’ll go back and Annette can look after Leo and that he needs to be with his dad and sister. Danny goes to call Ritchie and thanks Mindy.

And Mindy informs him she’s happy to go back to work, actually.

Thoughts, Mindy Project fans?
