In last night’s episode, we got a treat with a guest appearance by Elizabeth Banks. She plays Sal, and is Cam and Mitch’s friend from back in the day. They were single and partied together all the time, but now that Cam and Mitch have a family, they don’t get together as much.
Sal is your typical loving-the-single-life party girl. She visits because she has exciting news. Turns out she’s getting married the next day and wants Cam and Mitch to be her best men. They are excited and support her. They tell her how great being with that one person is and how they can have couple dates.
Well this freaks her out, she thinks that’s boring. The day of the wedding, they’re pre-drinking and she gets cold feet and starts making out with the bartender. Cam is upset because she is not taking the whole marriage thing seriously. When they get to the altar, Cam is determined to stop the wedding. Sal then tells her future husband that she can’t wait to do boring things with him and thanks Cam and Mitch for inspiring her. Cam starts bawling and they get married.
Gloria and Jay on the other hand have been having problems with Gloria’s breastfeeding. She does it freely in public and Jay does not think it’s appropriate. They get a call from Manny’s art teacher and she says Manny has been drawing women’s breasts and bodies. Jay thought it was because Gloria has been walking around freely. Turns out Manny is in love with their new nanny. The nanny quickly bursts his bubble and he’s heartbroken.
