Holly sits down, a single tear glistening in her eye. Spencer and Steph exchange a serious "WTF" look as Darlene compliments her daughter's elocution skills. Shortly thereafter, Holly high-fives the waiter and asks where she can put her gum. Darlene sticks her hand out to take it, and Heidi looks on, horrified. In a total non sequitur of a character arc, we are being made to believe that Holly is suddenly backwoods trash. To be fair, she does earn it a bit by throwing a potato at her younger brother Sky, who is sitting next to Nana(!). But her aim was off, and the cursed potato accidentally hits Heidi's expensive new purse. Ohhhhh girl, don't mess with Heidi's possessions! ShePratt looks on, rubbing her hands with excitement underneath the table. Heidi is practically livid as Holly tries to apologize, albeit rather nonchalantly. She does offer to pay, though, knowing that it's an expensive purse. Good enough for me. Even Spencer claims it's all good, that it's just a purse, but you can tell it's on. Holly walks off grumpily.
The minute she's out of earshot, ShePratt starts griping about "Holly's shenanigans." The ones that were just invented by Adam DiVello? Oh yeah, those ones. Sour grapes much? Spencer's "friend" advises her to just do the job, if she's so concerned about all the loose ends and how much it's going to ruin Heidi's special day. At which moment ShePratt remembers that is so not the point. Heidi looks over and wonders, "What's wrong with Holly?"
Outside, Holly is stressing out to Darlene, who comforts her that Heidi is probably just stressed about the whole wedding thing. Just as Holly is about to calm down, Spencer "Ms. Manners" Pratt goes outside to give Holly a lesson on rehearsal dinner etiquette, not to mention general age-appropriate behavior. To be fair, he is rather diplomatic about his chosen message, but it's neither the place nor the time. Holly immediately goes on the defensive and Mama Bear Darlene bares her claws and starts circling him like a wounded doe. Spencer senses that he will not come out of this with both eyes unclawed, so he backs off. To his credit, really. Maybe there is something to this "New Spencer." Naturally, Holly starts crying. Of course there is more to this than meets the eye, and I'm sure it's not really about the lecture... For starters, she's obvs drunk. And I would be, too, but puh-lease. She claims she has tried to "bend over backwards" to accommodate the relationship -- you know, that time she stayed on their couch for weeks on end, for example? She leaves in a huff. Is it just me, or does it seem like every cast member got a different script for this episode. It's like, "Let's cram as many emotions and as many open-ended issues in this episode as possible, regardless of whether they hang together." Commercials.
