Every time I think this show cannot get any worse, I am proven wrong. Last night’s episode featured Kenny, the adolescent homosexual, playing the role of Romeo in the school play, “Romeo and Juliet.”
His mother, Eileen, took the occasion to throw a make-believe wedding ceremony, even to the point of penning a seating chart. She did so because this is about as close as she’ll ever come to watching poor Kenny walk down the aisle.
After the play is over, Kenny says, “I do want to get married one day.” To which his brilliant mother says, “But not in a Catholic Church.” Kenny then shows his chops by replying, “I don’t know about that. The new pope drives a Fiat.”
Good thing they have canned laughter in this show. Imagine how lines like these would go over in front of a live audience. Pathetic is too mild a word to describe this script.
