Establishing shots of Phoenix. Establishing shots of Rachel's house. Pedro says he noticed two things when he first walked into the house. The house is really clean. Everything has a place and it's all dusted. More importantly, the house is filled with the Jesus. There are pictures, paintings, sculptures, figurines, stuffed animals, dishes -- you name it, and there's a Jesus on it and it's in MamaRachel's house. Yikes. There's a rug with a picture of a llama on it. There's no excuse for that. There are two pink twin beds with giant yellow headboards. Again, no excuse. There are black velvet paintings of something that look like pigs. Pedro is terrified. Rachel is happy to be back with her white plush stuffed tiger. Zoom in on a nativity scene as Pedro says that he's not used to seeing religion everywhere. He says it's nice that Rachel is welcoming him into her environment.
Pedro sits down to dinner, but only PapaRachel is sitting there. PapaRachel makes a joke to the effect that it'll just be the two of them for dinner. This can be taken in that "Nobody in my family wants to eat with you" sort of way, but the reality is that probably all of the women are still preparing the food in the kitchen while the men wait. Cut to MamaRachel slaving in the kitchen. She's even wearing an apron, people. Cut to a close-up of the refrigerator, where a bumper sticker proudly boasts: "Abortion. An American Holocaust." See? I had no idea that abortions only happened in America. They don't teach you those things outside the American churches.
"Sister." "Mom." Nobody gets a name here on The Real World. "Sister" leads grace, but gives a strange look to Pedro before she does it. Then she immediately screws up grace, and "Mom" gives a look that lets us know that she's totally been busted. This family probably never says grace, but she's threatened them all to act like good Christians before the cameras, the crew, and the gay. That's why there are so many Christmas decorations around the house. It's not about Jesus, it's about looking like you dedicate your life to Jesus.
A little later in the meal, the editing isn't letting us know what anyone's talking about. No shit, we just have this shot of MamaRachel saying, "Cuba." And then she just nods for a while all, "Thas' right. I said it." Then we see a very tired-looking Pedro. Rachel says something about being a Republican. Pedro laughs and says he's Cuban but not Republican, and that not all Cubans are Republicans. Blah, blah, blah. Rachel's sister says the word "constituent" and "Cuban." Pedro makes the sign of the cross. He rolls his eyes and sighs. I have no idea what the argument is about because they don't want us to know. We just see MamaRachel giving death glares to Pedro, but they don't tell us why. Pedro tells us that MamaRachel's idol is George Bush. She even named her cat after him. Cut to the very scene where Pedro learns that so we see it all over again. Pedro rolls his eyes, forgetting that one day MamaRachel will see the footage. Cut to a shot of George and Barbara as Pedro laughs at the Republicans.
