Gary calls Amber to tell her that he just picked up Leah from class. Amber asks clearly what her day was like and Gary goes, “What do I like?” He couldn’t hear her, because she “sounded like a water buffalo.” Way to make me keep on hating you, Gary. It’s like my husband. I can speak very clearly and he’ll still think I said something completely different. It’s not because they’re deaf, it’s because they don’t listen.
Amber/Sugarbush: I need to take my pills.
Gary/Mr. Sugarbush: You bought a jar of pickles???
Amber tells Gary that her mom left in a “rampage” and wants her to fight for her daughter. “Why would I do that?” Um, because you love her? Because you her mother? Gary says he’s taking custody of her so Amber can get her shit together, but, of course, Amber gets upset and says that her shit IS together.
Yes, things look so different from seasons past.
She gets mad that Gary tells her she needs to get better with her depression. She flips the holy shit out over this. Hey at least everyone is acknowledging that she has problems and needs to get better and take care of herself. Yeah, what a bunch of assholes.
Dalis and Ryan are seatbelt-less on their way to pick up Bentley. Dalis wants to know what he’s going to say to Maci and Ryan calls to tell her they’re there. Dalis needs to go. She really just wants this to be all dramatic. I wouldn’t ask him that! I’d just let him pick up his son and then ask Bentley if he had tons of fun at his party. But, of course, that’s what a mature person would do and this show is really lacking in the maturity department.
Ryan asks Maci why she would have Bentley call him and invite him to the party at the last minute without checking first if he had any plans or anything to do. While Maci is a manipulative nimrod, it’s not like Ryan should have any plans. He’s not in school nor does he have a job. He couldn’t have just gone to his son’s party?
Excuse me! Could y’all talk louder, this is totally my business!
She lies and tells Ryan that Bentley asked for them to invite him. She says she didn’t put this into his head when Ryan asks if she did. Um, roll tape! I hate to have to take Ryan’s side in this, because I can’t stand him. But, he’s definitely not the bad guy here and he’s onto her bullshit. Maci tries to close the truck door “so Bentley can’t hear”, which is code for “so Dalis can’t hear”. Ryan won’t let her, probably because he wants witnesses. Ryan’s a mouth-breathing idiot, but he needs to learn how to pick better girlfriends.
