The CamRents are discussing their parenting skills downstairs when Simon walks in to apologize some more. He also begs his parents not to send him to Buffalo. Hey, Buffalo's not that bad. There's a pretty spectacular art gallery there. And a Target. And at least it's not Glenoak. Simon admits that he had his suspicions about the punch, but he kept drinking it anyway. Why? "While I was drinking, everyone accepted me and liked me." Uh, Simon? Yeah, you do know that alcohol impairs your judgment, right? Evidently inspired by Ruthie's speech earlier, Simon takes responsibility for the entire drinking episode and asks his parents not to punish his siblings, or to think badly of Morris. Well, what do you know! I guess Simon's on his way to becoming a role model for all the silly females of the world to look up to. Because there's nothing more us women want, or need, than a man to look up to.
RevCam apologizes to Annie for letting Simon go to the party, admitting, "I just said yes to Simon because my dad always said no to me." Annie admits that she may have been too hard on Simon because she was "a lot wild" in high school and college. Okay, just please don't tell us you smoked half a joint once and half a cigarette another time, because I don't think I could bear it right now. The CamRents discuss the possibility of punishing their adult children, and Eric comes up with this idea: "I think we should not punish them but not tell them until tomorrow. That way they'll think they're being punished, which will be almost like being punished." Annie greets this asinine idea with the assertion that she and Eric are "parents of the year." Please, people! I've got a major hangover-type headache, and I haven't even been drinking. I can only suspect it's some sort of weird episode hangover. That would also explain the bad taste in my mouth and the sudden feeling that I'm going to puke. Could someone please direct me to Matt's car?
