Well, someone heard my birthday pleas. It seems that the final two episodes of Get Real may not be aired and will instead be replaced by the final episodes of Party of Five. This means we may be witnessing the last of this show. Enjoy it while it lasts.
To celebrate, and in honor of this show continuing much longer than it was ever supposed to, I'm combining this recap with a drinking game. By all means, feel free to join in with your beverage of choice. Here are the rules:
- Every time Meghan flips or tucks her hair: One drink.
- Every time Kenny stammers: One drink.
- Every time Mitch gets a distant look on his face: One drink.
- Every time Cameron looks away with his mouth open: One drink.
- Every time Elizabeth speaks: Two drinks.
- Every time Mary's neck cords appear for their close-up: One drink.
- Every time we hear the five-note Get Real jingle: One drink.
You ready? Let's kick it. Mad props to Heathen, Omar, stee and All-Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku.
Previously on Get Real: They let Cam back in school because he was stupid and wet. He looked up into the rain with his mouth open (1 drink). Slutgirl was interested in Cam. Someone went way back in the archives to pull up the scene where Mitch decided to quit his job and start the Restoration of Sin, now renamed the Frisky Father's Firehouse. There was a shot of Meghan hugging Clay as she told Slutgirl how lucky she was to have him in her life. Kenny told Rebecca that he's dating Kimberly. He then went to Kim's house in the rain to tell her that he chose her.
Fade up on Cameron sliding down the Frisky Father's Firehouse pole. He tells Kenny to give it a try. Kenny is hesitant: "It's not the speed I'm worried about, it's the friction." Tell me about it, baby. Some guy tells Kenny to do it for "Uncle George." Kenny reminds him that technically George isn't his uncle, but his neighbor. As everyone is at the "work table" eating chicken, Mitch is showing George around the place. He's planning on buying it and turning it into a restaurant. Oh, and somehow during the last week they completely renovated the building. It's all painted and finished. I suppose all of that sexual aggression Mitch was feeling was put to good use. Cameron sticks an entire chicken breast into his mouth and walks off. Mitch looks around his building and asks George to take good care of it (one drink). George says he doesn't own it yet, and then leans towards Cam to say, "Hey, Cameron. FYI: I don't know the Heimlich." "I'm hungry," Cam says around his food. "It's a constant state with him," we hear too-loudly from Mary, but we don't see her. Mary asks Aunt George about her son Dustin as Mitch asks Uncle George how Andrew's "Internet Company" is doing. George tells him that Andrew's company "goes public" next month. Aunt George asks Mary where Meghan has decided to go to college. Mary goes on and on about how Andrew was always at their door selling something when he was a kid. Who are these people? Another set of new best friends? What the hell? Aunt George bounces back that Meghan was always "peddling" Girl Scout cookies at their place. Yeah, Meghan's a regular Girl Scout, all right. Aunt George asks what college Meghan finally settled on. (Mary's neck cords: One drink.) Mary says that Meghan's decided not to go to college. Mitch stammers about how Meghan is "content" to follow "several different directions." It sounds like Meghan can't go to college because of a smack habit or something. The two Georges look like they are totally embarrassed for the Green family's idiotic, slacker kids. Aunt George asks Mary if she's okay with this. Uncle George is sitting with Mitch on some stairs and reminds him that Andrew dropped out of college, but now it's a whole new world out there.
