"Unnatural Love" is the fifth episode of the second season of the HBO comedy series Flight of the Conchords. This episode first aired in the United States on February 15, 2009. It received two 2009 Creative Arts Emmy nominations, for Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (Half-Hour) And Animation and Outstanding Original Music And Lyrics for the song "Carol Brown". 
With the help of Dave, Murray forces Bret and Jemaine to visit a nightclub to experience "dancing music". Inside they discover that the club is overpopulated with men and they sing the song "Too Many Dicks (On the Dancefloor)". Jemaine manages to pick up a woman at the club but when he awakes at her place the next morning, he discovers that he is surrounded by Australian memorabilia. It is only then that he realizes that the woman he had sex with is an Australian.
Jemaine tries to sneak out but he can't unlock the door. He phones Bret for help, but the woman catches him and introduces herself as "Keitha". She asks him to stay longer, but he leaves and heads straight to the doctor for a checkup.
Later at a band meeting, Bret reveals to Murray what Jemaine has done. Bret and Murray discuss whether Jemaine should be expelled from the band for his transgression, but they allow him to stay.
Jemaine revisits Keitha to retrieve his missing wallet and over a cup of tea he interrogates her about her family to determine exactly how Australian she is. It turns out she is very Australian, but nonetheless she manages to entice him into bed again.
Jemaine and Keitha start dating, much to the chagrin of not only Murray and Bret, but also Keitha's two Australian housemates. Dave approves of the relationship, claiming, "It's like that movie... Interracial Hole Stretchers 2". After a discussion with Keitha about why she has decided to date him despite the opposition of her friends, Jemaine sings the song "Carol Brown".
The lovers decide to elope to New Jersey and Jemaine waits for hours at the predetermined meeting spot but Keitha never shows up. Jemaine dejectedly makes his way home, only to discover that the apartment has been cleaned out by Keitha and her friends. He also discovers a helpless Bret, who has been overpowered by the girls and duct taped to the back of the door.
The following songs appear in this episode:
"Too Many Dicks (On the Dance Floor)"
After Dave asks Bret and Jemaine to give him more space on the dance floor, the band sings this dance track about a nightclub populated by too many men.
"Carol Brown" is an homage to the Paul Simon song "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" (there are later references to Simon and Garfunkel in the subsequent episode "Prime Minister"). In "50 Ways" the singer suggests a number of ways that a man can escape an unwanted relationship, including "hop on a bus". In "Carol Brown", Jemaine sings "there must be 50 ways that lovers have left me" and it instead describes all the ways that women have left Jemaine, including "Carol Brown" who "took a bus out of town".
Jemaine is accompanied by a chorus of women playing his ex-girlfriends. They sing about his many deficiencies as a boyfriend.
In the video for the song, Jemaine pretends to play a small videotape editing console with a guitar neck attached to it. Bret plays a similar contraption consisting of a bass guitar neck attached to a video mixer console.
Keitha's apartment is at 124 Ridge Street, Manhattan.
When Jemaine calls Bret the morning after sleeping with Keitha, Bret is reading A. W. B. Powell's Native Animals of New Zealand, a commonly used reference book in New Zealand classrooms. The book is an iconic piece of kiwiana and is frequently cited as an inspiration by New Zealand visual artists.
