It's nighttime at the CamPound, and Annie's sulking on the back porch. RevCam comes out and asks her how she's doing. She says she's not trying to ruin Lilly's wedding, which we all know is a total lie. RevCam says everything will be okay; Annie childishly asks him if he can guarantee that. "You know better than anyone that, in life, there are no guarantees," RevCam says. "I mean, God, those birth control pills were supposed to be guaranteed, but now we've got two retarded twin boys to look after until we're well into our seventies, so " RevCam suggests that Annie go to Lilly and make her feel better.
Side-wipe to a sobbing Lilly, sitting in the church. Lilly thinks that she's a terrible person, and she wants to cancel the wedding. She was being selfish when she asked her father to walk her down the aisle, and Annie has no reassuring answer for that, because Annie thinks she's right. I don't, however. Lilly says that she's avoided getting married for so long, and she thought that doing it with her dad and new family around her would make her feel better. But she was just thinking of herself. "And that's totally normal," Annie says, "for me, anyway. I do it all the time." And notice how Annie doesn't deny that Lilly is being selfish. Annie says everything will be okay, and she really believes that. She doesn't want Lilly to be sad on her wedding day. And Annie's bad feeling? "It's gone." Lilly says that she's so "glad" to have Annie in her life now. I can't imagine why.
After watching this episode, my dad was so appalled that he called to complain that the fact that I recap it, and that he's a fan of my recaps, means that he has to watch this show every week. As consolation, I told him that if it ever turned out that he fathered a child out of wedlock, and she came back into our lives and wanted him to walk her down the aisle at her wedding, but he had Alzheimer's, that I wouldn't be opposed to it. He said it was small comfort.
