Downstairs, we get to listen to the very tail end of a grand ol' Camden hootenanny, starring Annie, her parents, Lucy, and Mary. The girls get shuffled off to bed (not Buffalo -- well, not yet, anyway), and RevCam arrives. Annie tells him he missed the opening of the super-duper airport presents (ooh, airport presents -- hurrah!). Eric tantalizes everyone with the news that Dopey "had some trouble with the van," but then he says he's going to bed before he can follow through with the story. As he's leaving, Grandma grabs his arm and says, "Eric, when he comes in, talk with him and forgive him." Oh, brother! Woman, will you just die already? Okay, I lost both my grandmothers within the past ten years, and I still miss them a lot and get weepy thinking about them sometimes, so -- believe it or not -- I really am pretty sentimental. But this woman is working my last nerve, and the saintly act is getting old real fast.
The CamRents engage in a totally sexless make-out session in their bedroom, which RevCam cuts short because he's thinking about Dopey. Not in that way. Well, I certainly hope not, anyway. Annie apologizes for being happy because she had such a great time with her parents.
Uh-oh -- it's Simon and Ruthie, together again. And I just accidentally hit fast-forward -- again! -- just long enough to bypass this scene. That's twice tonight! Can you believe it?
RevCam is ranting about the Dopester's uncanny ability to make the wrong choice whenever possible. Word, Eric. Annie notices that his guitar is out, and Eric says that he just couldn't help himself. Annie lets him know that she considers the "bad choice" phenomenon to be something that runs in the family. Word, Annie.
Outside, Jeff is chucking rocks at Mary's window. Could they be moon rocks? When Mary opens the window, Jeff shouts up that he'd like to talk to her for a minute. In an unexpected fit of generosity, RevCam walks out onto his balcony and tells Mary she can talk to Jeff for five minutes. He also asks her to tell Lucy that Jimmy Plywood will call her tomorrow. Displaying astonishing dumb-assity -- even for Lucy -- the younger girl asks Mary's opinion on when she will be old enough to kiss. Mary answers, "I'll let you know," in a way that is completely charming. Or is it utterly fucking grating? Yeah, um, it's the second one, actually.
Outside, Jeff and Mary sit on a bench and talk. He apologizes for being a prick earlier, and she admits that she used the idea of staying home with Lucy as an excuse because she knew the CamRents would never let her go to the party with him, and she was afraid to tell him so. Just as they start to make out, Lucy chirpily calls out, "Time's up!" Hee hee -- wasn't that cute?
