Matt and Lucy are grocery shopping. Matt holds the basket (not a cart, even though they're buying A TURKEY) and Lucy deposits various organic vegetables inside it, without even putting them in bags or anything. Maybe it's because she only has one hand free, the other one being occupied with a bag of pork rinds.
Oh, here's some pain: SamVid provide the car ride home's entertainment with their rendition of "YMCA," an interesting choice for this show, to say the least. Then again, they've also used material from Tom Petty, Cream, and the entire catalogue of Ricky Nelson, not to mention whatever musical "The Rhythm of Life" was from, so I guess I can't really put anything past the show's music team. I'd like to see their iPod playlist sometime, though. RevCam sneezes and blames the twins' singing for making his cold worse, and Annie tells them to stop, as if RevCam's theory has any merit whatsoever. Nevertheless, the twins stop singing, and then Sam realizes he's hungry and Vid realizes he has to go to the bathroom. "You just went to the bathroom!" RevCam exclaims. "That was Sam," says Vid. "Shat wamblebat," adds Sam. Are they still trying to sell us on the fact that these kids are twins, and thus cases of mistaken identity are common and understandable? Come on now. RevCam asks Vid why he didn't just go when his brother went. "I didn't have to go then. I have to go now," Vid says with a hilarious shit-eating grin on his face. I'm starting to love that kid. Sam says he wants a hamburger. Is that the theme of this week's episode? That people want hamburgers? Shouldn't this episode be called "Hamburger," then? Or "Gratitude (For Hamburgers)?" Is it too much to hope for an appearance by the Hamburglar, which would be so awesome?
Matt has rejected the basket in favor of a cart, while Lucy has moved onto some "tequila-flavor" nachos. Oh, actually, I think she said "tacito," not "tequila," although I could certainly use something tequila-flavored right now myself. Lucy appears to be holding a bag of Doritos, although since no company in its right mind would agree to be shown on this crap program, the name has been changed to what looks like "NACHOS!" Booo, prop department! Those could have been Brenditos! Although, even with NACHOS!, the prop department has shown an amount of creativity that far surpasses that of the show's writing staff. Anyway, Lucy is way too thrilled the produce aisle, which has canned goods in it, unlike any produce aisle in any supermarket I've ever seen. "HEY, Fiesta Corn!" says Lucy, "that's a new twist on Thanksgiving tradition!" Whoa there, Crazy Chef! I don't know if the Camdens can handle "fiesta corn" after a lifetime of mayonnaise sandwiches and whatever else their bland diet consists of. Matt seems to agree, and asks her if she wants to curb her Thanksgiving enthusiasm a little bit. Lucy drops two tomatoes (not in bags) into the cart and tells Matt that if he thinks she should take it easy because she's pregnant, then he is wrong. After all, "the women in China work up until the day they go into labor. They deliver in the fields and an hour later, they go back to work. Hey, SPICY GARLIC GREEN BEANS!" And while Lucy's little cultural anecdote certainly is adorable, I highly doubt its veracity. I'm pretty sure that women in China, like women everywhere in the world who are lucky enough to have the resources with which to make a choice, don't just squat and drop their babies on the soil and then go back to work. Unless "women in China" is a new euphemism for "slaves in the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century American South" that I haven't heard yet. Matt tells Lucy that he doesn't believe her little story about Chinese peasant women, and I swear this grocery store has the longest produce aisle ever.
