When we finally leave the flashback, we're stuck on RevCam's stupid face, his jaw hanging open as he remembers. "I don't think he knows what he wants," he says out of nowhere. That doesn't even make sense; Simon wanted a dog and then he got a dog. "Neither does she," Annie says of Rose, even though we're probably supposed to hate her.
The entire Camden family made it back for the open credits! Even Mary, although she still doesn't get to be ahead of David Gallagher. She does get to be ahead of Beverley Mitchell, though, who has been on this show for its entire run and is still totally unimportant. There's no Martin to be seen, although there is some horrible Duff girl. ["The Amazing Robbie wasn't sprung from reha-- er, 'dug out of mothballs' for this shindig? Outrage!" -- Sars] And Happy finishes it off with a shot of her eating an American flag in a decidedly anti-American statement. I'd hate America too if the Camdens were all I knew of it.
Well, the Opening Credits Timewaster still sucks, despite a full-fledged effort by the Guitars of Fun! to jazz it up. Matt "Where's My Hairline?" Camden sneaks into the house, his hair as greasy as ever, and immediately sets about raiding the CamFridge, where he finds all the ingredients for a sandwich waiting for him to steal them. He hurriedly makes what appears to be a roast beef sandwich with a disgusting amount of mayonnaise on it. He was going to put some cheese on it as well, but had to reject that after an overreaction to a whiff of it shows us that the cheese has gone off. I'm sure that won't stop him from sticking it back in the fridge for someone else to enjoy, however. He should have rejected the cheese because eating beef and cheese together is incredibly not kosher, but I can't expect this show to care about Jewish customs when it can barely keep track of Christian ones. Sandwich finished, Matt leaves everything out on the counter for someone else to clean up and tries to escape the house, but he's stopped by RevCam, who sneaks up behind him like the creepy stalker he has always been.
Instead of going into what would have been an awesome flashback montage of Matt stealing the house RevCam's church collection plate paid for, he just says he's pleased and surprised to see his son here. He demands to see PC as well, but Matt won't let RevCam see PC until he sees his mother, leading to a incredibly stupid stand-off that fortunately ends quickly with both PC and Annie entering the kitchen at the same time. We see that the reason why Matt wanted both of his parents to be present when they saw PC for the first time is that she is hugely pregnant. So it was really important for Matt that his parents both find out about this at the same time, and yet not important enough for him to actually tell them, like, when he found out about it in the first place? Annie's reaction to the news is, of course, some horrible, eardrum-piercing shrieking and a series of facial expressions that make you wish your eyes had been pierced as well. Surely the baby heard this inside the womb and has just made the decision never to leave its safe confines. RevCam helps himself to feeling up PC's belly while pronouncing this a "very good surprise."
