Avoiding the girlfriend he thinks doesn't find him attractive, Patrick has run straight to the woman who finds him completely perfect: his mommy. He and Celia are sitting together on an ugly loveseat. He's stiff, clearly distracted, but Celia's eating popcorn and having a grand old time: "Oh, those Wayans boys kill me! They really do look like women, huh?" Maybe what we've seen pass for women in Elmo, they do. Celia notices Patrick's lack of engagement and reminds him that he loved the movie the last time they "screened it." Ha! Calling it "screening" when what you're watching is White Chicks is such a hilarious character detail. Celia asks if the popcorn is insufficiently buttered, and pokes Patrick, trying to jolly him along as she tells him he loves Movie Night. Patrick sadly says that he was supposed to be with Annie that night. Celia can't hide her smile as she hopefully asks whether they're having problems. Patrick says that he doesn't think Annie's into him, and Celia declares, "Never liked her." Too soon! He'll remember that when they totally don't break up! Rookie mistake, Celia! "Mom, we're not breaking up," says Patrick bitterly. SEE?! He says that they're just having "growing pains," but that they'll work it out. Celia, with faux-reluctance, says she's not sure they can. He asks what she means, and she takes a moment before imitating Annie's snore with ear-splitting accuracy. He asks what she's doing, and she says that Annie's snoring is worse than Patrick's poor yappy, now-dead childhood pet dog. Patrick asks how Celia knows, and she tells him that she heard Annie snoring at the office today. She makes with the per-snore-mance (sorry) again, and Patrick irritably tells her to stop. Celia says that she will: "But I don't know if [Annie] can." Patrick asks why Annie wouldn't have told him about her adenoid problem, and Celia says that Annie must know Patrick couldn't live with it. This has given Patrick a lot to think about. Like where he could buy really effective earplugs at this time of night.
