Matt and Mrs. Bink play cards while they wait. The doctor strides in, glances at a couple of x-rays, and says, "Everything looks fine. You can go now." Matt gets up and reads him the riot act for such a lack of sensitivity. "My hero," says Mrs. Bink. My ulcer.
"... and that's what a mammography is," a nurse tells Simon. He looks grossed out. We're supposed to realize that he's learned to respect women's issues more than before, and that some day he will be as sensitive and caring as his big brother Matt. Isn't that heartwarming?
Annie has called Robbie from the pizza parlor. Robbie tells her that he's done all her secret special-event chores. He even ironed Annie's dress. Annie says, "Wow," even though she's insecure about her position as Head Wife. Robbie turns to find that Ruthie and the twins messed up some fluorescent three-tiered cake. "Now that's a cake and a half," he says. I think he's dropping acid.
RevCam rudely accosts an airline clerk and finds out that Mary's plane isn't due for another hour. I think he should go to the airport bar and have a drink so he can be even more obnoxious to Robbie and his family when he finally gets home.
George and GramCam say something about Mary flying to Glenoak. I stopped caring about them so long ago that I can't even be bothered to rewind my VCR for those few seconds of filler and find out what exactly they said.
Lucy paces as she waits for Mike to get home. She's near tears as she relays his mother's message to Mike. She theorizes that Mike's mom blames herself for Mike's suicide attempt, as well as for Mike's dad's suicide. She tells some long story about a friend of hers who died in a car accident. I don't really listen because I'm too busy envying Lucy her youth. I'm sitting here recapping this with wrinkles and dark circles under my eyes. It's too late for me to start a career in television, isn't it?
The twins make a mess with Play-Doh while Ruthie gets into Robbie's business. She asks him about his relationship with Mary. He says that they're just friends, and then declines further comment. I'd rather listen to the twins' babbling, or at least see Robbie wearing nothing but a wet towel while RevCam scolds him.
