Chandler asks Roxanne to marry him again. Roxanne says she will. Chandler wants to set a date. Like a normal person who's aware of how long it takes to plan a real wedding, Roxanne suggests sometime next spring or later. Chandler was thinking more along the lines of next week. Roxanne doesn't understand why there has to be a hurry, she "likes things the way they are." Which totally makes sense, because last season she really wanted to get married, and soon. I guess the writers have just figured that last season was absolutely terrible, and the only way to make it better is to just do the exact opposite of what they were doing last year. I wouldn't put it past the writers of this show to fully subscribe to such an asinine theory. ["If that means all the main characters start smoking Marlboro Reds on camera, you won't hear any complaints from over here." -- Sars] Chandler says that he loves Roxanne, but he "can't do this anymore." Do what? Forget it; I don't even want to know. Chandler threatens to break up with Roxanne if they don't get married soon. I can understand making an ultimatum like that IF you've been waiting for your boy/girlfriend to propose for several years and you feel like there's nothing left to do but get married or find someone new. But Roxanne and Chandler have been together for less than a year, so this whole need to get married right away doesn't make any sense at all.
Simon walks into Matt's hospital. Suddenly, Marcia Wallace pops up behind him and starts talking, but I don't know exactly what she said because I was screaming in horror at the time. What the hell happened to Marcia Wallace? She looks like Ronald McDonald's weird aunt with her bright red punk hairdon't, buggy eyes, and generally clownish manner. She's also the size of roughly two and half The Bob Newhart Show-era Marcia Wallaces. Simon asks where Matt is, to which Marcia replies that Matt and Sarah went to the Berkshires for some "R and R," because first-year medical residents have time for things like that. Simon says that he's Matt's brother, at which Marcia gets all excited because she knows everything about the Camdens, because Matt is her BFF. Despite this, he apparently did not see fit to tell her about the car accident, because she doesn't mention it. She does, however, mention the Bank of Simon. It's like Brenda thought of that in a storyline meeting once (if they even have those for this show, which is doubtful) and thought it was so funny that it had to be mentioned once a season whether the viewers cared about it or not. A closer shot of Marcia reveals, once I can peel my fingers away from my eyes, that she has lipstick in the wrinkles around her mouth, which really enhances her clownishness. Simon says that his "ex-girlfriend" drove him to the airport. So they broke up? For sure? Great! Now there will be no reason for Asslee to stay on the show and I won't have to deal with her anymore. I'm going to have a celebratory margarita or ten. Marcia suggests that Simon stay with "MA-RY and CAR-LOS," speaking to Simon like he's a student in her kindergarten special education class. Simon asks who Carlos is. Marcia realizes that she stuck her foot in it once again, says that she has to go, and speed-walks away. I don't think Marcia Wallace blinked once during that entire scene. But as scary as she was, she delivered her awful lines better than almost anyone else on this show, so I wouldn't mind seeing her again. Which means that I won't, ever.
