I've never been so happy to see commercials in all my life as I have been during this show.
When everyone leaves breakfast, Kevin waits behind, because he's been informed that his brother wants to talk to him on the phone. Because of the show's abiding respect for both family dynamics and privacy, Kevin takes the call on the speakerphone with a camera there. On the phone, brother Sean informs Kevin that although he loves him and wants the best for him, he can't be Kevin's best man, because he can't support this ridiculous sham of a wedding. Wow, a flash of sanity -- who knew that was coming? Kevin calls his brother "buddy" a lot, which is Kevin for "My gentle brother, my feelings are wounded to the bone, but I respect your honor and will not attempt to dissuade you from your choice." After they hang up, Kevin lingers outside looking morose before heading back to the house to see Jill. He explains in a completely unnecessary voice-over that it was tough having his brother turn him down. You might have thought that would be adequately conveyed by all the morose lingering, but apparently you would be wrong.
When he gets back to the house, he and Jill open with some of their usual witty banter, to wit: "Whatcha doin'?" "Eatin' an apple." At any rate, he explains the situation to her. In an interview, she says that some of Kevin's family members "aren't so supportive of him," which makes her "hurt for Kevin." What she misses, of course, is that this IS his family being supportive of him. This is probably the most supportive thing his brother could do. At any rate, she also interprets it as a jab at her personally, as she tells us. Because it's all about Jill. Everything! Is about Jill! Kevin assures her that his brother doesn't dislike her, just the situation. Not that I'm thinking his family is wild about Jill, either. I'm certainly not, and she's not even marrying anyone I know, knock wood. Incidentally, throughout this conversation, Kevin is wearing his sunglasses on top of his head, which I hate, but he is at least wearing them right-side up. Given that Kevin was a minor-league baseball player, I think this solves forever any issue regarding whether wearing them upside-down on top of your head is a baseball thing.
