Out in the lonely hallway Mitch asks if he can get the real story from Meghan. Meghan says it's something she needs to handle on her own. Mitch says she's just like her mother. They stand in a backlit doorway like Danny and Sandy during "Love is a Many Splendored Thing." They hug. Meghan gets her navel ring stuck in Mitch's sweater. Oh, the hilarity.
Meanwhile, Mary is scoping out her new best friend Susan to see if the marriage is too good to break up. Surprise, surprise, he goes on long business trips and has picked up "a few bad habits." "I'm guessing you're not talking about golf," Mary "Carrot Top" Green responds. Susan decides that she sounds pathetic. Mary assures her that she's a good person and that she deserves a husband that she can trust and who cares about her. The Center of the Universe has spoken.
In the World's Largest Kitchen, Cameron is on the phone to one of his dudes talking about how Tennisha's all weird and like, tripping out and "spouting weirdness." Elizabeth is making a sandwich smiling her knowing Grandmother smile. Cameron hangs up and Elizabeth says, "I'm curious, maybe you could give me some insight into the mind of a womanizer." Cameron laughs and says, "It's a new millennium. We prefer 'player.'" Elizabeth goes on about how Cameron never stays with a girl more than a couple of weeks. He says that after they "hook up" they just move on. Elizabeth asks if a girl has ever left him. He laughs and says "no." Elizabeth tells him that it is a big deal to the girl who got dumped. "Trust me," she says, kicking off the five-note Get Real jingle as Cameron looks up. He exhales, exhales and says, "Time heals all, Gramma." She exhales and tells him to save the clichés. She tells him that the next time one of his girlies is "spouting weirdness, have the courage to ask her why." She leaves as Cameron exhales with a giant eye-roll. I'm just wondering how many episodes are going to have Cameron and Elizabeth following similar plotlines.
A knock on a door. Through the peephole Pete sees Mary waiting at the door. He turns around and checks his hair, puts a strawberry in a champagne glass, fills it with champagne from the ice bucket, purses his lips, looks himself in the mirror and actually winks at himself. Pete then puts down his copy of Generic Television Smarmy Guys: The Art of One-Dimension and goes to answer the door. Guess who's at the door? Not Mary! It's the ol' switcheroo, Get Real fans. Susan is fuming at the door and Pete is busted. Susan turns around so we can see Mary far down the hall getting into the elevator. I mean way down the hall, like from a mile away. You know, like where we saw this plot from? Her neck cords push the button for the bottom floor as we fade to commercial.
