Back at the chicken coop, Ter is now saying that it is not her intention to be here on the RV trip fighting with everyone. But she feels like she’s getting it from all sides. Well, that’s multiple bloodfeuds for ya. “I’ve had a rough year,” she tells the group. “Always a victim,” snips Caro.
Okay fine then, Ter concedes. Let’s just keep things the way they are between us, she tells Caro. That’s fine with Caro cause now she can tell Ter how she really feels about her in the most mature and articulate way possible – “You suck,” Caro spits at her. Ouch. Good one.
Well, you suck too, agrees Ter. Mel wonders how Jacquee can be sleeping through all of this. Ter points out that she’s definitely awake, she just doesn’t to be involved. Then Ter tells Caro that just because she’s 50, she thinks she knows everything. Then Caro gets on the train of accusing Ter of always accusing Caro of being old. As for me? Dizzy. To the point of puking.
Then Caro accuses Ter of saying she was boring. At this point, Ter says she’s had enough. “And she runs,” Caro snipes. Oh, not a good thing to say to this one. She turns right back around, plants herself on a lounge chair and informs the group that oh no, she’ll be there alllll night.
Then she goes to Brown Smurf for confirmation. Did I intentionally mean to hurt Caroline? “You put thoughts in his head!” Caro yells with more fingerprinting. “Caroline!” yells the Brown Smurf, prompting all Manzo children to sit up a little straighter in hopes of fighting for Saint Caro’s honor.
Al tells us that he’s always sitting quietly on the sidelines – “stealthy”, he informs us. Yeah, they’re just a stone’s throw away from recruiting your lap-banded ass for the Avengers.
Only a really smart person will tell you how much smarter they are then you. That’s how you put it over on everyone.
“If there’s a line crossed, I’m going to be involved, “Al warns. I wonder if this means you don’t get the good table at the Brownstone or you get shoved into the trunk of his car at the end of the trip. Brown Smurf yells to end it. “Who’s not ending it?” one of the Manzos asks.
There is silence. We all know it’s Caro keeping this fight going. But will Brown Smurf desecrate Saint Caro? He will! “Your mother’s not ending it!” he yells back at the Manzo. It was a joke in the book, Brown Smurf tries to tell everyone. It wasn’t funny, replies the stealth Al Manzo.
“I’m in this battle by myself,” whines Caro, who just five seconds ago was accusing Ter of always being the victim, “But ten feet away, I’m watching another battle unfold.” Hey, it’s a two-fer! She reports that Brown Smurf is drunk and her heart is pounding. Apparently, it’s because if the stealthy Al Manzo gets up, it will be “lights out”.
