'The Mindy Project': Mindy Is Perhaps Too Honest While Staying At Danny's Place (VIDEO)

It was a classic misunderstanding on "The Mindy Project." After losing her purse, Mindy invited herself to spend the night at Danny's place. On the way, she told him that she was into a guy from work. He thought she was talking about him, but she was actually talking about the lawyer down the hall. Thinking she was into him, Danny kind of freaked out when Mindy climbed into his bed to watch TV, and then clutched onto him in terror over a scary movie. So he told her that they needed to talk. That's something Mindy is very good at!

“Okay. I think you’re right. I admit it. I farted. I did it because I was scared and it was wrong, and we should talk about it," Mindy said. When he said that wasn't it, Mindy went on. "Okay. I spilled red wine on your sofa cushion and, yes, I turned it over. And then I got chocolate syrup on that. I wrapped it up in blankets and I thought you’d just blame it on your maid.” And then she admitted to farting again.

The stream of admissions made its way into virtually every recap of the show, ironically making the non-stop fart-talk a highlight of the episode -- don't tell Margo Martindale or "The Millers."

TV Fanatic's Chris O'Hara said that Mindy got a little too comfortable at Danny's. Over at BuzzFeed, Jace Lacob says that it's weirdly charming moments like this one that make the show worth watching. "'The Mindy Project' clearly isn’t afraid of itself or what it might be perceived as being; it is simply its best self on a weekly basis.”

"The Mindy Project" airs Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. EST on Fox.
