Back at the CamPound, every last one of those damn losers is still standing at the window, staring avidly into the front yard. Either they're waiting for Dopey, or they're receiving signals from outer space. I can understand if they don't want to spend the evening talking to one another, but don't they have a television or something? Some board games? A PlayStation? RevCam suggests, "Maybe I'll just go stand in the middle of the street so we don't miss them." This is not a bad joke -- only it's not a joke. Stephen Collins says it in a way that makes me think it is, but then Robbie suggests, in all seriousness, that he join Eric. Everyone else enthusiastically tags along as Eric starts walking toward the door. Good God, they really are serious! Ruthie says, "It's not gonna do any good for all of us to go out and stand in the street in our pajamas." This leads to the unsettling conclusion that she thinks it would be good if only some of them go out and stand in the street while wearing pajamas. In fact, maybe she'd like it best if Robbie went out and stood in the middle of the street alone while taking off his pajamas.
As everyone's speculating on whether Dopey will get married tonight, Mary says, "He's not me, but he could do something as stupid as I would. I mean, he is my brother." I'm not sure if Mary's serious, or if she's secretly hoping someone will contradict her and say, "Oh, come on, Mary -- you're not stupid!" If it's the latter, she's shit out of luck, since every member of the family remains conspicuously silent. Even Happy doesn't say anything. Finally, Lucy breaks the silence to insult Mary, saying, "While Matt might do something as stupid as you would, he wouldn't do something stupider than you would." Heh. I'm so glad that Mary's finally accepted her modest position in the intellectual food chain, and I'm even gladder that her family members acknowledge this situation fully. It's so much better than pussyfooting around the issue. I didn't think anyone could take this scene any further over the top, but RevCam just about manages it when he suggests calling the police. I have to say, I really, really wish they had. That would have been hilarious. But unfortunately for us, their time is up, and the episode ends. I know that I, for one, will never be the same after what I've just seen.
