After the commercial break, RevCam is still frozen in shock, his fork poised over his dinner plate. Dopey tells him that he's just "exploring the idea" of conversion, but even that doesn't break RevCam out of his catatonia. Annie finally jolts him back to consciousness, but he's having a little trouble coping with reality, which becomes apparent when he asks Rosina the name of the food on his plate. It's peas. Either he's trying to change the subject or else Dopey's news caused him to suffer sudden neurological complications. I just hope he doesn't have to go to his brother-in-law Hank for treatment. I know Hank is an OB-GYN, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if he suddenly changed his specialization, should a crappy subplot call for it. But where were we? Oh, yeah -- Ruthie is still fixated on genitals, as she asks Dopey if he will have to be circumcised. Oh, oh -- not only have I had to contemplate Dopey's sex life twice already, but now I'm expected to think about his foreskin? At that prospect, I lapse into a catatonic state for several hours, until my husband revives me. I ask him the name of the object in front of me -- a plastic thing with numbers and letters on it -- and he replies that it is a keyboard. I take a few deep breaths and continue with the recap. After Lucy gets up to use the phone again, Rabbi Richard rambles some more, asking if anyone needs to use his other phone or the rest room or the closet. I'm disappointed that the camera doesn't show Simon or Morris while Richard is mentioning closets. The rabbi is pretty funny, though, when he starts talking about the emergency exits in his house, and how he himself can't flee because this is his house. As your recapper, let me just say I know exactly how he feels.
Uncomfortable as the dinner party scene is, I'd still rather watch that than the next one with Robbie and Mary. She tells him that she wants to talk about "us." I know Mary's a fictional character whom I detest, but I still cringe pretty hard when I hear her saying something so utterly pathetic. Robbie very rationally points out, "There's a 'me' and a 'you,' but no 'us.'" The phone rings before Mary can humiliate herself further -- at least with Robbie. Of course the caller is Lucy, who's still stuck on the same old tired topic of Mary being alone with Robbie. Mary continues with the pretense that the caller is a telemarketer and tells Lucy, "Ma'am, if you continue to hound us with these high-pressure soliciting tactics, I'm gonna have to call your boss, the Solicitor General. You could lose your job." That's our Mary, stupid to the core. After Mary hangs up, Lucy stares at the phone in disbelief, though I'm willing to bet she doesn't have a clue what the Solicitor General actually does either.
