  • Todd Dempsey (Ben Rappaport) encourages Charlie Davies (Deidrich Bader) to ask Tonya (Pippa Black) out, but Tonya asks for Todd to come, too. Todd thinks it will be awkward, three's a crowd, so he asks Asha (Ayesha Dharker) along as well.moreless

    Gupta (Parvesh Cheena) hears about it and invites himself. Wasn't there a TV show called Party of Five? Well, they had a good excuse to call this episode that. Todd, Charlie, Tonya, Asha, and Gupta all go out to an Indian restaurant. They all make toasts, and then play games like "never" where they say something they have never done, and if you have never done it either, you don't take a drink. But if you do, then you take a drink. So Todd was trying to find out things like whether or not Asha ever went out with someone she worked with. Actually, she hadn't gone out with anyone, and she was waiting for her parents to arrange her marriage. Todd is flirting with her, but she doesn't do things on the fast track. Not so, Tonya. She rubs her foot on Todd under the table. He thinks it is Asha, and rubs back. This causes Asha to get up and leave in a huff. Tonya also leaves, since her game of footsie went awry. Todd, Charlie, and Gupta end up dancing drunkenly with the men. This is an Indian custom, and Todd and Charlie are drunk enough to do it. As a joke. The next day Todd is embarassed and hung over. Tonya calls to ask him to try another date with maybe just the two of them. She has a good cure for a hangover--a drink in a big cocoanut. Tonya is blunt about her interest in Todd, but can see that he is smitten with Asha. When he gets tired of banging his head against the wall with Asha, he might want to bang . . . Tonya is from Australia, and she is cute like Nicole Kidman, and she has that Aussie down to earth candor.



    One sub plot was Madhuri (Anisha Nagarajan) stole the assistant manager's key so she could sleep in the office, because relatives were staying with them and there wasn't enough room. The assistant manager was also staying there, because his father's air conditioning was broken. Since he can't report her without also reporting himself, they both sleep there. He gives Madhuri a pillow. She thinks he is asleep, so she tells him that she and her family are very grateful for this job. As she lays her head on the pillow, it makes a flatulent noise. It's one of the Mid America Novelty Company's products. Madhuri says "Now I understand what this product is."



    I like Outsourced. It is shaping up to be a pretty good NBC comedy.moreless
