This penultimate episode of the season starts off with a phone call between The Amazing Robbie and Americas Sweetheart, the not-at-all trashy, dimwitted or vile Mary Camden. She has some exciting news for ol' Robbie. Originally she'd wanted to make it a surprise, but she points out that the rest of the Camdens already know. Well, obviously -- if it's even remotely gossip-worthy, of course they'd make it their business to find out. The big news is that Mary will be returning to Glenoak for the summer. Robbies a little less than whelmed by that info. In fact, hes looking downright panicked. He asks, "What about Wilson?" Golly, that is so virtuous of him to care about the competition. Dumb she may be, but even Mary picks up on Robbies lack of enthusiasm. It's a good thing she can't see my reaction.
Over at the Sinnin' Premarital Cohabitators' Pad, John is ragging on Priscilla for not inviting her parents to their wedding. I'd totally forgotten about this dull storyline. Let's forget about it a bit longer, shall we?
Matt is studying at Cheryl's apartment when she interrupts him to hand over his invitation to the aforementioned wedding. She claims it fell out of his backpack, but the Cheryl we used to know would have rifled through his belongings to find it. I'm not sure if Suddenly Saintly Cheryl would do that or not. She points out that the invitation is addressed to "Matt Camden and guest." How lame is it that Matt's alleged best friend can't even be bothered to find out the name of who Dopey is dating and address a separate invitation to her? I'm sure John and Priscilla have those awful reply cards included with the invite that ask you to write down the number of people who will be attending. They totally deserve to have Matt tally up how many friends he wants to bring and write down some number like "12" on the card. Of course, the idea of Matt having even one friend other than John is pretty ludicrous, so the point is moot. Cheryl uses this occasion to pester Dopey some more about telling the Camdens that he's dating her. She says she doesn't want to be his "dirty little secret." I hate to tell her, but I'll bet Matt's got way dirtier secrets than his lame-ass barely-a-relationship with Cheryl. Someone as creepy as Dopey is bound to have at least one or two scary fetishes he practices in strict secrecy. He ends this scene by making Cheryl feel bad about interrupting his studying.
