While his date meanders off to grab herself a stiff drink, Doc comes over to converse with the Camdens. Lucky them. Doc natters on irritatingly about borscht and living in a kibbutz while the Camdens all sullenly ignore him. Hey, the dude is annoying, but there's no need to be so rude about it. Doc gets back at them when he asks where all the guests are and why the family looks "a little off tonight." Simon starts yelling about how Robbie is not family and cannot take Dopey's place. Then he gets up and leaves. Ruthie busts on Robbie until he gets up and leaves too. Then she leaves. Doc makes me laugh when he says, "I guess it's me, because everything here looks as right as rain." Fortunately for him, his date comes over to ask him to dance to Deep Purple's "Smoke on the Water." This leads Doc to start talking about the time he "toured" with Deep Purple. Actually, he just followed them around for a year, no doubt irritating the hell out of them also. By this point, Annie isn't even pretending to be polite. She's just sitting with her head propped up on her hand and her eyes closed. Doc finally takes the hint and departs for the dance floor.
Annie says, "Okay, I know why Mary and Lucy and Hank and Julie aren't here." Oh, do you really know why Lucy's not there? Since she doesn't have to pick up her grandparents tonight after all, did she actually tell Annie she's skipping her brother's rehearsal dinner to chat up a cute guy? Probably. Annie continues: "I know why the Colonel and Ruth aren't here." You do? Because nobody told us. No, that's okay. I really don't want to know anyway. Annie demands to know why Dopey and PC and the Glass family are not at the party, so RevCam has to explain about how he fought with Matt and Rabbi Richard. I can respect him for standing up for his principles, but if I were Annie, I'd be feeling pretty homicidal right about now. He couldn't have told her any of this earlier?
As RevCam gets up to leave, Annie looks stunned. It might be because RevCam is jumping the sinking ship that is this party, but it's just as likely she's in shock because she just noticed Doc and his date on the dance floor. They're still dancing to "Smoke on the Water," but they're not even remotely on the beat, and they're flailing around like crazy. Eh, at least they're having fun, which is more than I can say for most of the viewers.
