Dinner at the Palace. Hey is that the Survivor theme? How ingenious of them to make fun of a cultural landmark like Survivor. That's, like, never ever been done before. Leave it to Popular to be right there at the beginning of the trend, just eight months after the first season had its final episode. How do they keep it so fresh and current? Surely there must be a team of top-notch consultants advising the producers on the trends of tomorrow. Hey, maybe they can vote the parents off! That would be a great way to get rid of them. Unfortunately, it never happens because there's really very little about Survivor going on besides that theme music and a couple of jokes that Brooke makes about dinner that night resembling a tribal council meeting. Mike tells Brooke that she's grounded for two weeks and she's to break it off with Jamie despite the fact that Brooke apologizes for lying about something that turned out to be very innocent. Brooke appeals to Va-Jane-Ah for her to get Mike to stop treating her like a child. Before she can say anything, Mike's all, "as long as you live in my house you will live by my rules!" Brooke stomps out of the room. Sam is also to be grounded for one week. "I will not tolerate conspiracies in this house," says Mike. Okay, could someone please kill me the day I say in all earnestness, "I will not tolerate conspiracies in this house"? Unless, of course, I've found out that my children are, in fact, anti-government spies. Sam is all, "I didn't do anything! Mom, tell him!" Again, Va-Jane-Ah stops short of speaking out against Mike. Sam stomps out and Va-Jane-ah, sassy creature that she is and newly endowed with mother goddess-energy now that she's pregnant, clears the table.
