‘Duck Dynasty’ viewers were parked in front of the television for episode 2 of season 4. On Wednesday, August 21, Martin surprised the guys when he said he wouldn’t be available for Poker night. Of course, the guys had to know “why” he wouldn’t be joining them. He admitted he had a date instead.
“Is it Mother’s Day?” Willie inquires.
Willie goes on to say that he’s known Martin for 10 years, and he simply doesn’t go on dates. He says that Martin has been on as many dates as he’s been to ballroom dancing classes, which would be one. Yes, Willie confesses that he had to go with Korie once cause of some ‘group coupon thing.’
The Duck Commander crew won’t let up on Martin. They continue to tell him about internet dating sites, mail orders, etc…but Martin insists he doesn’t need their help, as he has a date already.
Si reveals he was a player before the game was even invented. The good ole’ storytelling Uncle then proceeds to go through his list of girls he dated back in the day.
Meanwhile, Phil and Kay are spending some time with their granddaughters. Phil says he doesn’t make a habit of hanging out with squealing grandkids, and that he tries to avoid it. He tries to get them into wildlife by pointing to the birds outside. However, the girls are much more interested in their iPads/electronics. Phil tells them to get off their ‘Wi-Pads.’ Miss Kay gives them snacks, which Phil calls rewarding bad behavior. Grandpa Phil can’t stand the Yuppie influence gripping these girls any longer. He takes them outside.
Korie and Missy come by to the warehouse, and are interested in Martin's upcoming date. They tell him to be himself. Korie says that Martin is such a sweet guy, and that any girl would be lucky to have him. However, she thinks he dresses like a 7th grader that hasn’t yet found deodorant. When the Robertson ladies ask him what he’s wearing, he seems content with what he has on. Korie and Missy aren’t impressed with his choice, and say they’re going to work with him.
We are introduced to Martin’s bachelor pad. Of course, Korie and Missy are there to help him, while Willie and Jase are simply there to poke fun at him. They first bash his decorating style (because his mother helped him), and say that he has too many old photos of himself on display. They comment on the socks thrown around the living room, and the surplus of mustard packets in the fridge. Jase claims he found an expiration date that says ‘1998.’
Phil’s fishing adventure with his granddaughters continue. He advises them that when they start dating, they need to make sure to tell the guy that they can bait a hook. Still though, he’s worried that they are already suffering from ‘digital dementia.’ As he’s teaching them fishing basics, he insists that worms are ‘happy’ when hooks are ran through them. Yes, they are happy to die…..according to Phil at least.
Back at Martin’s, Willie continues to rave about how much he likes Martin’s chair. Korie and Missy find some clothes for him to try on, but first he chooses to model his own outfit of choice. They are of course displeased with his choice, and he fails the test. They tell him that he’s 0 for 1, and to go try on what they picked out. Willie says he enjoys them ordering someone else around for once.
Though Martin’s next outfit satisfies them, they tell him the hat has got to come off. Martin isn’t thrilled about going hatless, but takes their advice.
He later walks into Duck Commander with his outfit, where he is met with smart remarks. Jase tells him he looks like a ‘hairy Easter egg.’
Si claims that women are trying to make men into Channing Tatum these days (which he probably isn’t too far off about).
Back at the fishing spot, Phil tells the girls to be quiet because fish can hear. They keep telling him that they’re bored. Phil struggles to come to terms with their disinterest, but is ‘happy, happy, happy’ when Merritt catches a fish. The girls want to name him, and throw him back to his brothers and sisters. Phil wants to name him 'Supper' and fry him. He is pleased when one of his little granddaughters tells him they love to eat catfish....which gives him hope that maybe they aren't full-fledged 'Yuppies.'
At the warehouse, Si has taken his etiquette advising to a whole new level. He has sat up a table, and dressed himself up as a woman. Jase calls him an ugly woman, and says he has been dressed as one more times than he cares to remember. The good ole’ Uncle pretends that he is Martin’s date…..a girl named “Tiffany.” He suggests Martin use a pickup line to compliment her blue eyes. Martin corrects him by letting him know that her eyes are green. As Si continues with all his smooth-talking, Martin then corrects the name. She is named Brittany….not Tiffany. Si pretends to be a drama queen, and makes everything difficult.
At the end of the show, ‘Tiffany’ is heard singing, “if you like her, you need to put a ring on her.”
In case you’re wondering….Martin’s date worked out quite well. He and Brittany have been happily dating ever since.
