CamDen. Simon puts some lame sunglasses on and prepares to turn his lights on, which he's placed randomly about the living room walls. He plugs them in, and they flicker and die. It's sort of a metaphor for Simon's life, if you think about it. The doorbell rings as Annie walks in. She's momentarily blinded by either the brightness of the lights or by how unbelievably tacky they look. She puts on a pair of nearby sunglasses, because who doesn't have sunglasses in convenient locations around their living room in the middle of winter? Matt storms downstairs and asks if anyone is planning to answer the door, as whoever is behind it has grown so impatient in the five seconds since s/he arrived that s/he has started knocking and ringing the doorbell simultaneously, like, learn some patience, asshole. Simon and Annie come to the door, which Matt is standing behind, refusing to answer on account of he's still wearing his Santa pants, and I guess that's supposed to be embarrassing. Annie answers it to reveal Jenny, all dressed for a party. Matt comes out from behind the door and tells her that he left her a message that he got fired, so he couldn't pay for tickets to the dance after all. Jenny says she has a surprise for him. Ruthie realizes that she hasn't had everyone's full attention in at least five minutes and walks through the foyer, whining about how she'll never get over Matt being Santa. They pay her little mind, and she goes upstairs. Matt leaves with Jenny. Annie turns to Simon and tells him to "go back in the living room and take another look at those lights," which doesn't look like much written out, but was delivered in a creepily seductive way, like she does when she tells RevCam to go upstairs and "check on the twins." Weird, and ew.
Over in the CamKitchen, RevCam, Carlos, and Mary are playing an intense card game. We know it's intense because Mary's jaw is hanging slightly less open than usual, so she must be trying to concentrate. The doorbell rings. We get a close-up on everyone's faces, peering at each other from over their cards. Stephen Collins has huge red rims under his eyes, which I can only assume he's developed from crying so much after he reads each week's script. The doorbell continues to ring until Mary throws her cards down and leaves to answer it. RevCam asks Carlos if he has any threes. Carlos tells him to go fuck himself. I mean, "go fish." That's right -- they're playing Go Fish. You didn't think they'd be playing anything sinful like poker, now, did you? With Mary out of the way, RevCam is free to tell Carlos his true feelings. Or tell him that he talked to Carlos's family and they want him back for Christmas, and there's a plane ticket waiting for Carlos at the airport to that end. The first option is really the more plausible one, when you consider how much work and time would go into finding Carlos's family in New York City, especially considering that we don't even know Carlos's last name. Maybe RevCam got lucky and Jo Anne Worley was the operator and hooked him up. Carlos is all, "My father actually paid for my plane ticket?" to which RevCam is like, "No, someone who works at the soup kitchen did." Way to extend that first olive branch, there, Carlos's dad. Mary comes back in and says that the person at the door was "just Mom." Wait -- Annie was standing outside, ringing the doorbell to her own house? Why? Doesn't she have her own house key? And would she even need it, considering how often the CamDorks leave their doors open so strangers can wander around their house? Maybe Annie just does this every once in a while for attention. RevCam announces that he just "fished [his] wish." This apparently ends the game. RevCam looks meaningfully at Mary and Carlos and goes to bed. Mary and Carlos stare at each other. Dude, they're totally gonna get married.
