*We start with Matt and Amy going around the farm. Matt says he needs a new tractor. Amy says the old one works, but Matt just wants a new one, just because. Amy jokes that Matt thinks she is old and worn out and that's why he's trying to replace her...awkward.
*Matt takes Amy into the garage, surprise! He has bought a new car. Two new cars! Mercedes Benz! Amy is ecstatic. Seriously. She looks happier than she has all season.
*Cue the drama filled voice-over, Amy says she is very worried about their finances because Jer and Zach are going off to college and she's concerned Matt is spending money on these new cars. Back to the live footage, Amy is still smiling like cheshire cat and laughing.
*Matt says he got the two of them for 25% below wholesale value an it was too good of a deal to pass up. Amy says she doesn't understand where they're getting the money....
*Ok, my thought. I love the Roloffs. They have an entertaining tv show that I like to watch (and a very cool and hot son!). I'm glad for them that they're stinking rich. I don't care that they have 18 cars and buy 2 Mercedes Benz just because they can. But the fake drama part and the pretend lying about how are they going to pay for it is getting tiring. I don't think Amy was mad about Matt getting two new Benz'. Her expression didn't say that! She was thrilled. But I think they don't want everybody in the family to be seen jumping up and down happy over them spending their wealth because they know it will piss off some viewers so they dream up this fake drama with Amy supposedly being all against it and talk about how are they going to pay for it. They're rich from the TV show! We're not stupid. Gosh!!!! Just be honest. End of rant.
*Amy is planning the grad party with her friends, two mothers of Jeremy and Zach's friends who will be graduating with them. Hey people! This is the big grad party! The now infamous grad party with the missing pictures!
*At lunch Amy is talking with her friends about how much is going to change with Jer and Zach graduating and leaving. This is anti-climatic since we know nothing has really changed except now Jer and Zach are going to Portland Community College a few days a week and it's closer to home than Faith Bible High School was. But Amy talks about how things are changing and goes into one of those very boring and drama filled "what will become of Matt and I when the kids leave?"
*Matt is showing off his new Mercedes. Mueller seems to like it. Jer and Matt take it for a spin. Jer speeds down the road. Jer said he and the buds came up with a new nickname for Matt, "The Big M.R."...because Matt Roloff does everything big and in grand style.
*Uh-oh. Matt and Amy come out to look at Amy's new car. There's a scratch on it. Matt says Jeremy is not allowed to drive the car until he finds out what happened. Amy doesn't care. They voice over that Jeremy took Amy's car and when he had it out someone scratched it up by the door. Amy doesn't care because "It's just a car" (and let's be real, it's not like it's any trouble for the Roloffs to have it fixed). Amy doesn't care that Jeremy dinged up her car, but she says Matt is pissed. Amy says Matt was more mad that Jeremy didn't even tell them that he happened. Matt goes on about how very frustrating it is. He doesn't actually sound too mad to me. It's a good time to point out the change in Amy about Jeremy. In the first season she probably would have been all over him. Like the garage door incident when Jeremy backed the trailer into the garage, Amy didn't care about this either.
*Speaking of garage doors. Matt tore off the mirror on his new Mercedes. He's blaming the kids for Matt backing into the door. There was a man door in the garage that the kids left open, Matt didn't see it and smashed his side mirror to pieces. Amy laughs at him. Matt wants to speak to Molly. She's playing Rockband. Amy tells Matt to call her on her cell. Matt and Amy are in Matt's office in the house. You know you're living in a mansion when you have to call on your cell from room to room to get a hold of your own family.
*Amy says she wants to splurge on events like the graduation party for Jeremy and Zach because that's what important. This is the theme of the whole show tonight. Amy says Matt wastes time and money on projects and stuff that doesn't matter and isn't as concerned with important life moments....like giving Jeremy and Zach and their class the best damn Graduation Party in the history of the world!
*Amy is driving off in her car. Matt comes to the drivers door and asks her if she likes it. Amy says "it's alright". This will go over well with all the poor people watching. Nothing like seeing rich people get two new Mercedes and then being all ho-hum about it. Matt kisses Amy on the cheek. He stays standing there, so Amy leans over and kisses him on the cheek. Matt likes that better. Amy drives away saying "I can't do this anymore". Is that supposed to be a reference to kissing Matt or driving a Mercedes? Poor Amy.
*Matt and Amy go around the farm again for Matt to show her the latest projects. Cut the theme of the show tonight. Amy says Matt cares too much about projects and not things that are important. Matt says being creative and his projects is the reason why he wakes up in the mornings.
*Matt explains that the farm is his creativity and it's his legacy. Matt talks about how they're figuring out what they do that's good together and what they do that doesn't work and they're wondering if they really want to spend the rest of their lives together.....Gosh I'm so sick of this. In Matt's newsletters he's saying everything is great, so please Matt, stop with the "on the show" "Do we want to spend our lives together?" Liar liar pants on fire!!! (semi lie because he phrased it as question, but it's the same thing!)
*Moving on....it's the graduation party! The infamous grad party, we (at least the members of The Jeremy Lovers Society which I am a proud member!) have been looking forward to seeing this....
*There are a few shots of Jeremy playing soccer with the rest of the grads, but they're ruining it......just like they did on the BVI trip and the Utah trip....it's Amy talking about how Matt isn't there and they didn't see Matt too much. Then they show Matt, he explains that Amy wants to keep him at a distance because this is her thing.......I want to see the Grad Party not Matt and Amy giving the same speech for the two millionth time this season!!!!!!!
*They come back from a commercial and at least give us a few seconds of the grad party. Yay! Jer and his friends build a human pyramid. Zach climbs up on them. For the shameless lovers of Jeremy's ass, there is a very nice shot from behind as Zach is climbing up :)
*They show the graduates around a camp fire. Note. I think most of us knew this but in case you didn't, yes that was Dani, Zach's sort of ex, with Zach and Jer's friend Brendan or BJ.
*Matt comes to say happy graduation to the grads around the fire.
*Maybe he's tired or maybe sad about graduation, but for some reason, Jeremy looks especially sad sitting around the fire.
*They don't even end the show with stuff about the grad party. They end with the same old drama. Matt talks about the future with Amy. Amy says she thinks they'll probably still be together in 20 years but now when she thinks about that, she has some doubts.....
End of episode.
There is no LPBW next week and Jan 4th will be a new episode about Zach having ear surgery. Ouch.
This week was good to be back on the farm, but I'm really getting sick of the marriage drama taking over everything. They don't even let the viewers enjoy the stuff Jeremy and his friends are doing anymore, it's all about "Watch to see if we divorce!!!! We might, we might not. We might. We might not. We might. We might not.....frustrating.
