Elizabeth is walking around the house greeting their "friends." She stops in front of one couple and says that it's so great they came: "It's been too long." "Thank you," the woman says as she grabs a glass from Elizabeth's tray. Elizabeth walks over to Mitch and Mary and asks who those people are. It's the Johnsons from across the street. "We stopped inviting them years ago, and they still come!" Mitch says. Whee! We're so popular even the un-populars crash our parties! It's so nice to be rich and successful and have a large family, the World's Largest Kitchen, and be the Center of the Universe. Now, if only we all weren't burdened with these horrible, horrible problems. Meghan simply cannot be happy until she decides if she wants to have a boyfriend of her dreams or a life-long best friend. Mary won't be happy until she gets ten cases of Dom for her really expensive party for some rock star turned lawyer. Mitch has to decide if he wants to give an expensive gift back to a generous, sexy blonde! I mean it's a terrible thing to have to go through these things right around the holidays, isn't it? It just ruins everything! Elizabeth continues spreading good cheer as she offers cider to Slut Girl and Meghan. "Made it myself," she beams. "Oh. No thanks, Grandma," Meghan says. "I slaved my ass over the stove for six hours for this cider, you ungrateful little bitch! You don't actually have to drink the damn glass, but the least -- the very least -- you could do is take a damn glass from my tray. You think I like walking around serving all of you? No one likes my cooking and no one knows each other because we just hire friends every year and I'm lonely and tired. I just want a little common decency around here for the holidays. Now you and your slutty friend will TAKE my cider and you will PRETEND you like it because I'm your damn GRANDMOTHER and it's Christmas!" She doesn't say that, but she should. Slut Girl and Meghan watch Clay and Ferret pretend to be in love. Slut Girl starts to gag from all of the good cheer. She begs Meghan to say that she's not fantasizing about being Ferret. Meghan gives the guilty head turn. Rayanne says she gets a cavity just looking at them. Angela says she's ignoring her. Sharon and Jordan walk up as Sharon ferrets that Elizabeth is the best cook ever and she has decided that she and Jordan are moving in. Rayanne says, "Isn't that great, Meghan? All of your friends moving in!" She then asks Ferret to help her wrap a present for Meghan and show her that "ribbon curl thing." They leave Meghan and Clay alone as Meghan snuffs up her face and says, "That was smooth." "She knows?" "Yeah, it might've slipped out." Clay makes a face. "No, no, no, don't worry, she's cool...in her own way," Meghan says, completely dissing her friend. Clay says he's sorry that Ferret showed up but Meghan says not to worry. Elizabeth enters to ask which one would like to get more soda from the garage. Clay offers and Meghan says that she'll show him where it is. As Clay walks off Elizabeth whispers, "He's cute!" "What?" "He's gorgeous!" Meghan says that Elizabeth has it all wrong, and that they are just friends. "Oh. My bad. Did I say that right?" Meghan giggles and walks off. "Friends, my ass," Elizabeth says and leaves the frame. Hey, score one for Elizabeth.
