The Bravermans sit down to supper together and Julia congratulates Amber on the A ++ she earned from her mother's boyfriend. Julia then reminds us that nothing travels faster than word of a Braverman's accomplishments. Hmm, I think that's called bragging. Or maybe, annoying? Both? Note to self: Don't go to Braverman family supper. Steve's continued existence really irks Adam and he glowers at him every time he opens his mouth, but especially when he asks "Camille", a.k.a. the Matriarch, if he detects a hint of nutmeg in his crisp. Which would probably get him an ass whupping in any family. I mean, does he not have brothers? He's out Eddie Haskell-ing Eddie Haskell with that. Everyone sort of snorts, except Haddie who thinks everything he says is keen and she can't wait to earn her black bracelet from him. Camille thinks he's a keeper too, because if he hadn't mentioned her first name, no one would have ever known it. After the kids retire to their make out /masturbation/video game sessions, the grown ups all clean up. Everyone is teasing Adam about being so uptight, but he really doesn't think it's funny. Then they all start teasing each other about high school crushes and making out on playground equipment, which is making Kristina uncomfortable because, I don't know, she's worried Adam will leave her for some girl he made out with on a merry go round? Joel is hiding in the corner, because he doesn't want to get judged or yelled at, and when the teasing quiets down he reads some of Amber's paper, because it is really good and that is what grown ups do. Yep, nary a party goes by where between sips of Merlot and bites of Camembert some adult doesn't start reading her niece's English paper to the gathered crowd. Sarah stops what she is doing, because how could she not harken to the brilliant words of her daughter? Also, the words are familiar. Amber copied Sarah's high school paper. Everyone thinks it's funny except Sarah and Julia who makes her judgmental face, knowing that Sydney would NEVER even consider such a thing. Shut up, Julia's face! Then Sarah calls Amber a bitch, which probably isn't going to win her any points in the Mother of the Year competition the Bravermans put on each August. Sarah charges upstairs, wakes up Amber and yells at her. Amber apologizes, but the book was really hard! Sarah insists that she go and confess her crimes to her hot teacher.
