[Open Int. Beach House]
(Mage is seen running towards the Gems with his phone.)
Mage: Guys! Guys! Look what came in my email today!
Jet: Let me see... (takes Mage's phone and reads it) Hmm... No.
Mage: Aw, come on! It's Clarissa!
Ivory: Your crush?
Jet: Fine, I'll go. But I'm not eating. It peeves me... (shudders)
Citrine: I'm assuming supervision is required for human dining?
Mage: Kind of. Clarissa's parents want to meet my parents...
Ivory: You do realize your mom and dad are dead, right?
Ivory: What? It's true!
Mage: Can you guys just help me?
Citrine: Certainly. What you do you suggest?
[Trans. Int. The Crab Shack]
(The Johnston family is seen impatiently waiting at a table.)
Mrs. Johnston: (sighs) We've been waiting for over forty-
(The Gems rush into the restaurant.)
Jet: (panting) Sorry we're late. We got caught in traffic.
Mage: (sits down) It sucked.
Mrs. Johnston: Of course. I presume this your spouse?
Jet: Yes. Jasper, dear, why don't you take a seat?
Jasper: (blankly stares at Jet)
Jet: Uh, Jasper?
Jasper: Oh, sure.
(A waiter brings them salads.)
Jasper: Awesome! Snacks! (reaches for salad, but slaps herself) What are you doing? Etiquette!
(Everyone stares at Jasper.)
Jasper: Pardon me. I must excuse myself.
(Jasper walks off-screen.)
Mr. Johnston: Your mother is fairly...unique.
Mage: I know, right? She's the best mom ever!
Clarissa: My mother's pretty great, too. She makes me oatmeal for breakfast!
[Trans. Ext. Outside]
(Jasper is seen defusing.)
Ivory: Good going.
Citrine: I apologize for that awkward moment.
Ivory: Jasper would've been fine if you weren't such a cibophobic.
Citrine: Human digestion is rather disgusting.
Ivory: Oh, whatever. Let's just focus on getting through the evening.
[Trans. Int. The Crab Shack]
(Jasper walks back to the table and sits down.)
Jet: Oh, there you are. I was starting to get worried.
Mage: Where were you? You missed dessert!
Clarissa: Yeah, we had apple pie!
Jasper: My bad. I apologize. (reaches for salad, but clenches her fist)
Jet: Is something wrong...?
Jasper: No, I'm just... hungry!
(Jasper jumps on the table, devouring the food.)
Jasper: (gags) Stop this nonsense!
Clarissa: What's going on?
Jet (embarrassed): Jasper, calm down...
Jasper (shouting): No! Why can't you be civil?! (defuses)
Ivory: What's your problem?!
Citrine: My problem? Clearly, the problem is-
Jet: Stop, please. We'll discuss this matter later.
Mr. Johnston: What is going on here?
Mage: Fusion. It's when Gems are mashed together.
Mr. Johnston: Hmm... We should go. C'mon, Clarissa.
Mrs. Johnston: It was lovely meeting this family of yours, Mage.
