Title card: "Pat and Jimmy." Oh, great. Chandler walks up to a coffee bar on the Promenade and meets "Jim," as played by Dick Van Patten, who apparently had a few bills he needed to pay. Jim is rather elderly, so Chandler starts asking him a bunch of questions about why he would want to marry Pat and what's the deal with the age difference. I don't think Chandler should really talk about age differences, considering that a few weeks ago he was all about marrying a woman who was well over ten years older than him. Jim doesn't know what Chandler's talking about until he realizes that Chandler wants to talk to his son, Jimmy. He calls him over, and Jimmy looks kind of elderly, too. And also, in case you haven't guessed by now, retarded. Jimmy says that he had dinner with Pat last night. "She thinks you two are going to get married," Chandler says. "Okay, we can get married," Jimmy says. Jim orders him off to get some cups so that he can talk to Chandler. He tells Chandler not to worry; he won't "let" Jimmy get married. Chandler says that's not Jim's decision. Jim says that Jimmy "can't" make the decision. Considering that Jimmy didn't even really remember Pat, and made the decision to get married in a rather abrupt and child-like way, I would tend to agree with him. Jim tells Chandler to go back and explain things to Pat, and then she'll probably forget about the whole thing by tomorrow morning anyway. Chandler suggests getting everyone together to talk about this instead.
Side-wipe to Chandler talking things over with Pat and Jimmy. Jimmy says he never asked Pat to marry him, but Pat says that she loves him, and that's what you do when you love someone; you get married. Jimmy says that because he is of the male persuasion, he's supposed to be the one who asks Pat to marry him, not the other way around. And, anyway, he only told Pat that he loved her because she gave him her French fries. "So I'm not getting married?" Pat asks. Only if she waits for the guy to ask her, says Jimmy. Yes, even retarded men can be strong, overbearing patriarchs. Thanks for the lesson, Brenda! Jimmy says he does love her, and Chandler says that that's great, and that they can spend some time getting to know each other better and maybe get married somewhere down the line. "I'm ready now!" says Pat. That's enough for Jimmy, so he asks Pat to marry him. Pat says yes, and announces to the rest of the house that she's going to be a bride. They all rush out from behind a wall and say that they were listening in and are really happy for them. I didn't see the episode where this Maple Home was introduced, but it would seem to me that it's not all that different from the CamPound. Makes you think.
Side-wipe to Chandler coming to RevCam's back door, Pat and Jimmy in tow. They all ask for help.
