When Annie's spiel is complete, all RevCam can do is stare at her. With a sharp intake of breath, he summons up all his courage in the face of imminent danger and asks Annie if she might be taking Thanksgiving a little bit too far this year. "I don't recall our ever making this big of a deal out of Thanksgiving before," says RevCam, gently suggesting that perhaps they could just go out to eat for the holiday and save everyone some grief. Well, everyone except for the Chinese restaurant that has to deal with their stupid asses. Or not, since Annie puts on her Disgusted Clownface (oh, how long have I missed thee!) and says they have never gone out for Thanksgiving and they aren't going to start now. "I like Thanksgiving," she says, as the grimace she's sporting can attest. She's especially excited because this will be baby Charlie's first Thanksgiving (well, besides the three he enjoyed while in the womb), and I'm sure the six-month-old child will really enjoy those gourd candles. "It's a BIG ONE!" Annie shrieks, most likely talking about the holiday, since I don't see anything else in the kitchen that would warrant such a description, like, say, RevCam's backbone.
RevCam takes a different tack and asks Annie if she's planning on apologizing to Matt and PC. "Why?" she asks. RevCam points out that Annie was a totally rude bitch to them when they arrived last night. Annie says she wasn't rude, she was "just surprised. Caught off guard, if you will." Fine, Annie, I will. I will also look forward to punching people I don't like in the face and then claiming that I was "surprised" and thus, blameless. Annie continues that Matt and PC "need to be here next week when everyone else is here," because she wasn't paying attention to anything anyone said last night. RevCam says that they don't "need" anyone to be here, they just want them to be there. "I need you to get the turkey today," Annie non-sequiturs, "okay? A nice, big one. Make sure it's free-range and fresh, not frozen." It's great that Annie's into free-range stuff and all, but if you buy a bird a FULL WEEK before you plan on serving it, I'm not sure how "fresh" it's really going to be come mealtime. Maybe Annie meant "fresh" like The WB uses "fresh" to describe new episodes of 7th Heaven. In which case, the Camdens can expect a Thanksgiving dinner that's actually just a regurgitation of eight years of past Thanksgiving dinners, which really weren't all that tasty to begin with. Annie's turkey talk makes RevCam lose it, and he breaks it down to Annie that they can't get such a huge turkey because there won't be many people for it to feed. Upon seeing the crazed look on his wife's face, however, RevCam tries to cover by saying that at the very worst, they'll have leftovers. With a demonic grin, Annie tells RevCam not to worry about Matt and PC not coming because she "took care of it." She then shoves RevCam upstairs and returns to her vigorous gourd-scooping. Hmm I hear that abuse of cucurbitaceous plants is one of the first signs of insanity.
