Simon comes into the waiting room to harass Annie for a while, asking her such winning questions as "Where's Matt?" and "Where's Mary?" Annie pointlessly expositions that Dopey is busy taking midterms at medical school. Medical school! Dopey! Hee hee hee! I don't think they should bother going to such great effort keeping up the illusion that Dopey is still a member of the CamFam. After all, unlike the character, I suspect the actor has been smart enough to invest his earnings in a way that will not lead to him debasing himself by returning to a show he so obviously detested. As for Mary, well, the less said about her, the better. Still, Simon stubbornly insists that everyone should be there. He conveniently forgets about Ruthie, though. Annie tells Simon to "let it go." She's not talking about his anger toward his siblings; she's referring to his guilt over being nasty to his father last week. That really was a great scene between RevCam and Simon. In fact, it must have been a little too good for this show. Maybe Brenda's afraid that more scenes like that will draw attention away from the show's usual agenda of preaching about how much better it is to "make out" than to have evil premarital sex. I know that sounds stupid, but it pretty much is what the show's all about. In any case, we won't be seeing more good drama any time soon, since Simon has apparently apologized to Eric off-camera. So, that got rid of the good, stirring part of the storyline, leaving us free to watch Simon insist that he's not mad at himself, while Annie maintains that he is. After a couple rounds of that, Simon gets bored and leaves to take a walk.
