"Lilly and Derick." I've been spelling her name wrong all this time. Meh. RevCam comes downstairs, where the rest of the family is eating breakfast. RevCam says hi, and Lucy hushes him, saying that no one wants to wake up Annie. "That's sweet," says RevCam. Well, not really; everyone's afraid of Annie today because she's, as SamVid puts it, "not happy. She's mad." RevCam lectures SamVid that they mean Annie's "angry," not "mad." "I think she's both," SamVid says. Ha! And here I was, thinking they were kind of slow all this time, when they're really quite astute. ["Even a broken clock is right twice a day." -- Sars] RevCam asks what Annie is angry about. Lucy says it's about Lilly's wedding. RevCam says that Annie is all smiles about Lilly's marriage, because it means that she won't be living in sin anymore and stuff. Ruthie asks RevCam to "explain the rehearsal dinner last night." Yes, please do explain the rehearsal dinner last night, because from what I've seen in this episode thus far, it either consisted of the Camdens skipping it to help out Mrs. Bink, or RevCam skipping it to help out Pat and Jimmy. Either way, we didn't have the privilege of seeing it, and so the event must be relayed to us after the fact. Such great storytelling! RevCam says that Annie left the dinner because she wasn't feeling well, which Lucy says was obviously an act. "Eric!" Annie's demanding, naggy voice rings out from upstairs. Annie comes downstairs dressed in all black and asks where everyone went. We see the formerly occupied kitchen table, and that it is now completely vacant, the open back door seemingly providing the means of escape. If they had added the Simpsons-style sound effect of footsteps running outside, a car door slamming, and then a car peeling out and driving away, then shit, that would have been perfect. I would have given this episode a C. I can't give it a grade any higher than that, because the retarded engagement storyline was so damn offensive.
