Except for Gaston, all of the family members have each appeared in different rounds of 30 Days - it's nice to see them all together at last.

Also, stop making thinks awkward, Cleo. (I think Tarik is more concerned about Cleo blurting out something insensitive, rather than about her learning that homosexuality exists.)

We'll see how agnostic Tarik really is when the pork is served.

Oh, it isn't Tarik who will clash with the inhabitants of this farm due to a huge ideological rift... ;-)

(Besides, they will have ratatouille, which is just vegetables. But even if they were to serve pork, I think Tarik wouldn't really mind that.)

Soooo apparently gravel is too modern world for these guys?

Gaston is going to be trouble.

Gravel is just a few steps removed from asphalt - and that's the pavement of the devil!

Just until a few days ago, it wasn't entirely clear to even to myself what role exactly Gaston will play here.
You'll soon see if he going to be trouble - or going to be in trouble... ;-)

Well, at least Dad is open-minded, if nothing else, eh?

Exactly, that's the irony of the situation!
Daughter A is openly lesbian? He is completely fine with that!
Daughter B becomes an engineer? Scandal! Traitorous to everything this family stands for!!

A long time ago, I let Babette drop the tidbit about herself being bisexual... However, since then we have only seen her dating men.
So, making her sister a full-fledged lesbian partly is in order to compensate for that.
