Jill and Kevin's trip to the marriage license lady is similar, but with less overt misery. They both look relatively happy, although Jill claims that they were both still distraught over Kevin's brother not being more "accepting" of their relationship. I'm skeptical of this, because I'm really not sure it's possible for Jill to be distracted for any significant period of time by events that don't directly involve her. She also says that after they got the license, the pit of her stomach was "not feeling right at all." When they get back "home," they set about writing their wedding vows. Jill says she wasn't really sure what was supposed to go in a wedding vow (hint: you might if you knew the person you were marrying). She says that her mind wandered. Yeah. I have a feeling that Jill's mind has a certain lack of direction generally, if you get my drift. Kevin has less trouble, and tells us that he tried to make it nice and short so he could remember it. Heh. Jill's pale blue peasant blouse represents the poetic nature of her heart, I suppose. Also, it accentuates her boobs, and we already know she's in favor of that.
At BJ and Tony's, they receive the instructions to work on writing their vows, but BJ says it will be "cake" because she's already thought about what she wants to say. Tony interviews that he will be writing his vows in private so that they will be a "surprise" for Billie Jeanne. Wow, did you catch that foreshadowing? It left a dent on my forehead. And now, Billie Jeanne and Tony begin The Great Chicken Skirmish of 2003. She talks about what they should have for dinner, and points out that they have some chicken. She suggests cooking it with mozzarella cheese, and is wounded by his notable lack of enthusiasm. More to the point, she thinks that it's unfair of him not to realize that she is trying to communicate about the chicken. She wants them to share the decision about the chicken. She wants them to bond about the chicken. The chicken is, like, a metaphor for life decisions. If they can't discuss chicken, how will they decide whether to have children? She tries to move the discussion in a positive direction by bringing up Shake-N-Bake, but he's even more calmly insulting about that, because when she asks him if he likes it, he says patronizingly, "I liked it when I was twelve." Ouch. Asshole. Anyway, he complains in an interview that he finds BJ a little too "malleable," meaning that she tries too hard to please him, which is an all-right thing to complain about if you're not being passive-aggressively demanding, which he is. She explains to him back at the kitchen table that she's trying to think of both of them rather than just herself, but he says something really snotty about how she better start thinking of herself. She interviews that it "gets [her] very frustrated" when he won't discuss important things like poultry preparation with her. Finally, she gets up from the table and stomps off, muttering, "Dumb jerk." You know, they are totally ready to get married.
