Lazybones Rebecca is snuggled up in bed when Justin gives her a full-body wake up call. She grouses that she has a headache and Justin balks, because they aren't even married yet. Rebecca glares at him and reminds "Dr." Justin that she just had the flu. This does not dampen Justin's er...morning drive, but Rebecca knocks him off of her. Justin sublimates his desire for her into a desire to diagnose her. Apparently freshmen in Justin's magical MD/BA program get to take clinical diagnosis and he is raring to play "Name that Disease." Rebecca is not really interested, but Justin persists and diagnoses her with either Ojai Food Poisoning or Idiopathic Wedding Planitis and then I kick in the screen on my television just to shut him the hell up. Rebecca rolls her eyes and points at the clock and, mercifully, Justin has to get to magic school.
Scotty is shocked to find out that the Evil Empire Bank has reduced their line of credit based on the real estate prices in their neighborhood. Now they don't have enough to pay for the baby! Banks hate gay people! Where are the pitchforks and torches?! Scotty sighingly decides to cater more in order to make up the difference. Kevin points out that they need at least $50,000 and that is a lot of canapés and crudite. And Kevin wants to contribute too, but has no way of getting more work other than pilfering campaign contributions. Since The Senator is still a Republican, Scotty thinks it is a great idea. Kevin laughs, but frankly, Scotty, with Kevin's family history of purloining funds, maybe you shouldn't encourage him. Anyway, The Senator's not half as bad as the new guy in the primary who is a far-right wing conservative who is definitely not gay friendly. Kevin promises to get the money somehow (remember, he does come from a long line of embezzlers) and heads out the door... only to slam it shut when he sees a masked man right outside who is armed and dangerous and charging! Kevin screams for Scotty to call the police! Scotty however isn't really moving, but is staring at the door with his head cocked slightly. He knows that masked man. It's his dad. He's just dressed as a superhero from one of Scotty's beloved childhood comics. Kevin stares at him because unwittingly marrying a role player has got to be unnerving. Kevin shakes his head slowly and unlocks the door. Scotty's dad, Wally, has taken his mask off. Kevin says hello, and Wally, looking sheepish, says hello, too. Scotty gives his dad a big hug, while his dad explains that there is a comic convention in town. He then blurts that Scotty's mom left him. Scotty's jaw drops. I can't say I would stay married to a man who dressed in full costume and flew around the country to comic conventions either. A girl has limits.
