Annie walks into RevCam's office to find him playing with one of those paddles that has a ball attached to it with a string. He's amazingly uncoordinated. SuperMom walks in and says she's worried because Simon isn't home yet. When RevCam doesn't freak out over that news, SuperMom thinks he doesn't care, which makes her cry. Profusely. RevCam tries to make light of the fact that Annie had been calling herself "the eighth dwarf, Weepy, in Snow White." SuperMom gets her bitch on for about four seconds, then smiles lovingly at RevCam while he answers the telephone. I hope the fact that she's cycling through her mood changes so quickly now means that this irritating story arc will be coming to an end soon. I wonder if anyone realized, when they started with the whole menopause thing, that it's a state that can go on for years. I predict that we'll have a few more episodes of Annie acting all moody and wacky, and then the whole thing will be conveniently forgotten. I wouldn't mind too much, since Annie and her mood swings annoy me beyond comprehension, but still, that would be stupid! Eric answers the phone to hear a sultry voice saying, "Leave your wife and children and come away with me." Hey, it's Morgan Fairchild, who will forever be Chandler Bing's mom to me. We're supposed to think she was kidding about that "come away with me" crack, since RevCam claims they are just friends. With a straight face, she says she's in Glenoak for the week and would love to see RevCam. Then she hangs up the phone without even saying goodbye. Annie tells RevCam, "Invite her over. After all, I liked your last girlfriend, Serena!" Annie storms off, and RevCam pulls on the string of the paddle-ball thing in frustration. It looks like he's about to floss his teeth with it.
Before he can carry on with his dental hygiene, however, a couple walks into his office. The man introduces his wife as Amy and himself as Tim. When RevCam tries to shake his hand, Tim points to his empty sleeve and says, "That's kind of what we came to see you about, the fact that I don't have an arm." Amy attempts a joke by saying, "Don't worry -- we don't want you to pray it grows back." RevCam does not laugh. I don't either. It's amazing how the jokes on this show alternate between totally vapid and pretty damn offensive. Where's the in-between stuff? The stuff halfway normal people might laugh at? Tim explains that he owns a prosthetic arm that he sometimes removes at work, since it is uncomfortable. It seems that his coworkers stole his arm as a joke. Is this for real? I know I was just offended by the "pray it grows back" remark, but despite myself, I'm laughing a bit now. What kind of mental state would someone have to be in to come up with a plot idea like this one? Now, that would make a good subject for a future episode -- of some show that deals with psychological case studies, that is.
