Over on the front stairs, Ruthie, Simon, and Robbie are spying on the happy couple. Big surprise there. Simon wonders if he will ever get married. I'm not sure what the laws are in California, but unfortunately, I doubt they allow the kind of marriage Simon would be getting into. Ruthie doubts his marriage prospects also, asserting that he will "die alone." Damn, that's cold, but funny too. What does she see for Robbie? He "will marry many times." But surely there could only be one International Pop Sensation as sensational as Joy!
As weird as it was that those three were spying on Dopey and bride, it's even weirder that the CamRents are too. You're not likely to catch me all over my husband on my parents' living room couch, but if I were making out with him there, I'd be thoroughly creeped out if I looked up and saw my parents smiling down at us. Let's just move on, shall we?
Over in Buffalo, Mary and Ben are having a shallow, boring discussion about their future as a couple. Mary breaks it up by sidling over to Ben and slipping her arm around his shoulders. He asks if she's trying to seduce him. Don't be silly, Ben! In the CamVerse there is no such thing as seduction, just lots and lots of kissing. See, it's a microcosm of the real world, right? Sure enough, kissing is exactly what Mary wants, and that makes me happy enough if it means I'll get a brief respite from all that crappy dialogue. Once the kissing is out of the way, Mary wonders what Lucy and PBM are up to. She explains that Lucy can get "a tad intense" about guys she likes. I wonder if Lucy and Kevin are engaged already. So, what do you think Mary will find when she opens the front door to let Ben out? Yep, it's Lucy and PBM making out in the hallway. They're oblivious to everything else, and Mary eventually has to pull Lucy away from Kevin and into the apartment. Damn, that's annoying. Once the guys have left, Lucy enthuses about how Buffalo is such a "fun town." I'm something of a Buffalo apologist myself, but let's not go overboard, okay?
It's morning in Buffalo, which we can tell from the same old, tired establishing shot of Wilson's apartment building. Even though the buds are just starting on the trees here in Toronto, Buffalo has a surprising amount of foliage already -- including some interesting tropical-looking plants. Honestly, I had no idea Buffalo was so verdant this time of year. Lucy thanks Mary for bringing her to Buffalo and tells her that she and Pea-Brained Moron will be keeping in touch and that he will be visiting her in Glenoak whenever he can. But of course! All the characters on this show jump on planes at a moment's notice, whether or not they have the funds to pay for it or not. At least PBM has a job. So, it turns out, does Mary. She's been hired by JetBlue airlines as a flight attendant, and she's going to be based in Buffalo. Lucy asks if she's just doing this to be close to Ben, a question which is understandable when you consider the lengths people go to on this show to maintain romantic relationships that are only a few weeks, or days, old. Mary pretends that she's really excited about her new career. Mary's been excited about so many different careers already that it's hard to believe that she'll be any more successful at this one than any of the others. She strains our credulity by insisting that she'll be jetting back to Glenoak every week to attend classes with Lucy at Crawford Clown College, and then once again demonstrates her lack of maturity by deputizing Lucy to tell the CamRents that she's not coming back to Glenoak.
