Ben pulls Mary aside to ask her why she's in Buffalo. He arrogantly assumes it's to try to win him back. He tells Mary she's "not mature enough" for a relationship and that she's still hung up on Wilson and Robbie. Mary replies that that's not true, conveniently forgetting that last week she was annoyingly still trying to win Robbie back. Mary tries to convince Ben that she's moving back to Buffalo for some reason other than his presence there, and he tries to scare her off by telling her that he has a girlfriend. Okay, but does his girlfriend know he's out on a blind date right now?
Dopey is with his parents in the CamKitchen, explaining that PC won't talk to him but that she won't go home either, since if she goes home upset, Rabbi Richard will ask her why she's upset and will find out that Dopey gave her a fake, cheap ring. Are you following all this? Don't worry -- you're not missing out on anything. RevCam tries to explain that he'd thought the feelings behind the ring were more important than the ring itself. Dopey replies that PC thinks the fakeness of the ring implies that Matt's feelings are false also. Wow, she's only been a Camden for a few weeks, and already her IQ seems to have diminished by a good fifty points. After Dopey leaves, the CamRents figure out how best to meddle in his problems. Annie says she knows "just the right ring" for PC. Ooh, the suspense. It's killing me.
Up in Ruthie's room, PC is staring down with distaste at her gemette. Ruthie comes in, which must mean it's time for some more of her special counseling. How nice for all of us. She explains to PC that Dopey is merely a bad gift-giver, just like RevCam, who once gave Annie a vacuum cleaner for her birthday. Hey, what's so bad about that? When we first started dating, my husband gave me a cool retro toaster as a gift. According to the authors of The Rules, that's exactly the gift that shows a man's not interested seriously interested in you. I beg to differ. In any case, I'd rather receive a vacuum cleaner than some ugly gimcrack that I'd feel compelled to wear even if I hated it. Of course, when we decided to get married, I asked my husband for an engagement computer rather than an engagement ring, so what do I know? Ruthie natters on some more, finally convincing PC to accept her gemette. She finishes off the lecture by asking, "Have you got it this time? Because I'm a little tired of telling you the same thing over and over again." Believe me, Ruthie, you're not the only one who's tired of this subplot.
