Added DiffLines:

* TaxidermyIsCreepy: Averted, in that Barry's dioramas using stuffed mice are actually sweet and artistic. (Played straight in real life: the artists who created the dioramas for the film had to avoid using real mice because they looked creepy.[[http://articles.latimes.com/2010/jul/25/entertainment/la-ca-workinghollywood-20100725]])

Before that, though, he takes him to his apartment, where Barry notices Darla [=IMing=] him. Assuming that Tim is involved with Darla in some way, Barry makes some flirtacious replies in an attempt to be helpful. Unfortunately, it turns out that Darla is really his PsychoExGirlfriend doubling as a StalkerWithACrush that Tim has been trying to get rid of for quite a while. Meanwhile, Kieran is becoming... ''fond'' of Julie as Tim is trying to hide the fact that he's not only going against his agreement with her to not go to the dinner, he's taking Barry as his idiot as well. Along the way, numerous mishaps happen. It also features a blatant ripoff of [[ForgettingSarahMarshall Aldous]] [[GetHimToTheGreek Snow]].
