Vincent's parents "feel just terrible" about eating the Camdens' dinner. They'll feel a lot more terrible once the arsenic Annie uses to season her dishes hits. RevCam asks them what we've been wondering all episode: why do they want Vincent to go to church so badly? Their answer is long, so I'll give you the short version. A Contrived, Unrealistic Storyline Forced Into The Script To Parallel Kevin and Lucy's Situation Digest, if you will. Here we go: when Vincent was born, his parents moved back in with his maternal grandparents. And they never left. The grandparents did all the parenting while the parents sat around watching television, I guess. Vincent's mom says this was a "wonderful arrangement for everyone involved." Yes, except for, say, the grandparents. Last year, they finally got sick of being taken advantage of and moved to Hawaii, leaving the house with their daughter, sort of like the Walshes did on Beverley Hills 90210, but even stupider, if this is possible. So now Vincent's parents actually have to be parents, but they don't know how, so they want RevCam and his church to do it for them. The only other option, explains Vincent's dad, is that they follow the grandparents to Hawaii and make them take care of Vincent again. I bet the grandparents made damn sure to keep their phone number unlisted and their address private just in case this happened. RevCam has a third solution, an idea so crazy that it just might work: Vincent's parents could try to parent! Oh, except that they don't want to. RevCam says that he can help them; the whole church can. Guess what, whole church? RevCam just volunteered you for teenage boy babysitting! RevCam says he feels strongly about "this issue," that being having strong young teenage boys around him. It certainly isn't about being a presence in one's children's lives through thick and thin, since, as we've seen in the cases of Simon and Mary, when the parenting gets tough, RevCam believe the children should get sent off to college or Buffalo.
