I found the mud slinging more than a little problematic. A story that started out with an interesting premise dissolved into a teenage-boy fantasy of two hot girls in a mud fight. I don't know why the boys felt like they needed to keep Melissa in the dark about Katherine's origin and then, just as inexplicably, let her in on it just as Katherine 'disappeared'. Also, I don't understand why Katherine just gave up her dress with little prompting or explanation and agreed to be sent back in Vincent's mom's clothes. I was also waiting for a reveal about who Katherine "really" was... although I can't think of a famous historical Katherine besides Catherine the Great and she was Russian.

(Sorry for the late post/revival of this thread, I just listened to this. Usually I don't go back so far to post unless I have something to add that I don't think got discussed when the episode aired)

I had the same reaction as many forumites; Friend is a cool dude, translator is hilarious, and WTF with this mud fight? Basically, Melissa came of as an a-hole, and then inventor dude joins in? This really made no sense (until esanderson pointed out this is a teen boy fantasy, and then, well, eww!).

Also, I had no clue these were teenagers. I assumed they were university students, so early 20's.  Maybe that is why I felt Melissa's mud slinging was completely inappropriate. But as Devoted135 noted, "what high schooler does that?", so even that doesn't help me. All in all, if we could have this story without the mud fight, that would be awesome!
