Reza is convinced that Asa‘s spraying water all around his rehab project has blessed it, and things are going swimmingly. Perhaps MJ needs some of that Asa water because she’s claiming she’s 40 and she’s visiting a fertility doctor. Why? Well, for air time, of course, because any woman knows she’s not having a baby unless God decides it’s time for Mary Redux.
She says she’s 40 and the Dr. says her ovaries look like the ovaries of a 35-year-old, and then MJ says it’s great to have ovaries that are ten years younger than her. So, we’re going with 45 as her real age. (BTW, only on TV would a Dr. allow you to wear platform stilettos in the stirrups. I can barely get permission to keep my socks on.) Reza doesn’t have to worry because a) he has no eggs and b) Adam ain’t giving it up anyway. He’s going to see a Dr. himself: A head shrinker to find out why in the heck he’d want to get married to that drip, Adam.
Mike finally sold a house like an actual realtor so he’s invited MJ to come over and see it so she can be a witness. MJ takes a cursory look, then talks about the whole GG thing again and tells Mike it’s time he apologize so he can go to the wedding in Thailand. But, really, who wants to go to Thailand?
Bobby‘s mom comes to visit and tell shim to just be happy and help Asifa go get the food that they worked so hard getting delivered. He insists that they put it in real dishes, while Asifa wants to serve it in the styrofoam. They argue in front of his Mom and then it turns into arguing about how they have no trust since Asifa can’t get over the fact that Bobby dated her girlfriend when they weren’t together. Bobby reminds her to be happy that they don’t have the problems that Mike and Jessica have.
At the head shrinker, Reza says Adam is kind and loving but they don’t sleep together enough but when he goes on Adam‘s computer, nothing but porn comes up. Reza doesn’t “want to get married and divorced in five years and on the road to despising each other like my parents did.” Adam just thinks it’s normal. Reza says they’re going to Thailand but “getting married, that’s not gonna happen.” From Adam‘s face, it looks like this is the first time he’s hearing it. He cries. Reza says nothing. In order to make money, the shrink tells them they have to come in once a week.
Everyone goes to dinner as per a Reza last-minute invitation — well, everyone except Mike, of course. Oh, and Adam. Adam‘s not there. Everyone’s yapping about how much fun they’re going to have in Thailand. Bobby and Asifa start in with the digs at each other in front of everyone. Reza‘s not saying anything but then he starts up. “Adam‘s at home. And there’s a reason. And I’m feeling a certain way and there’s a reason, and I was hoping to get more into the dinner, but clearly you guys are curious, so I’m just going to tell you what’s going on. Um. I cancelled the wedding.”
Everyone expresses what is supposed to pass for surprise, and Reza continues, “Umm, we were having some issues and he and I were talking about them and I was kind of hoping that they would magically be resolved by the time we got ready to go Thailand, but obviously wishing them away usually doesn’t make a problem go away.” Only GG asks how Adam is, and Reza says, “Adam‘s actually devastated. Promise me you guys are going to give him a little bit of space, he’s dealing with this a lot differently than I am. So I’m sorry he’s been a little MIA and I’ve been a little distance, but we’ve been going through some stuff and I’ve been keeping it to myself.”
Bobby sees an opening and congratulates Reza on calling it off. Obviously the man has the same idea. Reza says the Thailand party is still on but without Adam so everyone is happy! That’s all anyone needed to not worry and be happy — fuggedabbout Adam! We’re going to Thailand!
