Cut to Meghan and Slut Girl sitting on Meghan's bed...I think but suddenly it has a backboard that I didn't see before and it's like it's in a different part of the room. Maybe I just can't see it so well since my eyes have been bleeding for thirty minutes. Elizabeth shouts that the door is for her and Slut Girl gets excited that she's going to be there to witness Meghan and Clay's First Ferret-Free kiss. Meghan is not so jolly and tells her to shut up. At the bottom of the stairs Elizabeth says that it's Amy. Slut Girl goes back to the bedroom. Amy is in the kitchen. Cue the five-note Get Real jingle. Meghan walks down and into the kitchen in a very long scene that is supposed to hint that Ferret is upset, but since it takes too long I know that Ferret must have her back turned with a gift for Meghan or something and I'm correct. Ferret gives Meghan her paycheck for the after-Christmas shopping. Meghan asks if Ferret wants to "hang." Ferret says her and Clay are about to shop for the ski trip. Meghan is all, "Wha?" Ferret says that Clay finally decided to go. Ferret says that Clay is getting her old room. Meghan feigns joy and says the old room was a freezer. Ferret gives her trademark Flipper laugh. Meghan hugs Ferret and says, "Merry Christmas," and I'd assume that Ferret would be like, "What's with the waterworks? I'm totally back, like, in three days." But, she of course tells Meghan that she loves her and struts off as happy as any other young actress that has made it to four episodes of Get Real without being written out.
Later, the Green family is watching Miracle on 34th Street. Mary and Cameron are asleep. Kenny is brooding. Meghan is so alone in the world that it's terrifying. Oh, sorry, reading from my high school journal again. It's hard to tell what is the script and what is from my adolescent scribblings. Is everyone tired of this episode? I'll try to summarize. The power goes out. Kenny and Cameron start fighting. They fight so much that they knock over the Christmas tree. Mitch has to scream at them. They start fighting again. Whose fault is it? Mostly Kenny's fault. Okay, Cameron too. Elizabeth is actually cowering in the corner. Everyone is yelling at Kenny and Cam until Mitch yells that they are brothers, and one day they have to leave that house and now is when they are deciding if they are going to leave as friends or strangers. He's all yelling and his forehead is seriously creasing. He storms off and Kenny and Cameron start fighting again until Mary's neck cords have to get into it. There's a knock at my door. It's the UPS guy. I tell him that it's pretty late for a package, but he says he was paid extra to deliver it. I open the box. It's an anvil. The note says, "You're gonna need it. Love, Sars." Mary says that when Mitch was a kid he and his brother were just like Cam and Kenny. A returned letter is the closest communication they've had in ten years. She tells them to think about what Mitch said. I rearrange my Christmas lights to spell "I GET IT" because I. Get. It. There's much more about "Uncle Steve" but since we all get it I'm leaving it alone. They decide to clean the mess up.
