Previously: The kids found love (or something like it.) Melvin died, but he was able to bribe Grim Chef to let him live longer by giving him a Death Flower. Menaja had a girl named Christopher. Jack won the heir poll, and mykaa passed the torch on to me, which brings us to...
Alejandro: OMG! Now that I'm an adult, does that mean I'll get to do kinky things on this bed? I HOPE IT MEANS I GET TO DO KINKY THINGS.
Alejandro: But first I have to come here to the grocery store and solve the shit out of these puzzles.
After their blissful honeymoon period, MaryKay and Melvin have run into some problems.
Melvin: Come here, baby, and give me a kiss.
MaryKay: Woah, there! I am not in the mood for this.
Melvin: But, we're married. We have to do things like this sometimes. That's part of being married. I have needs, you know?
Now that she was an adult, Mandy decided that she wanted to take her relationship with Barry to the next level. She dressed accordingly.
Scarlet: You invited a boy over and you're not wearing any clothes? What is wrong with you?
Scarlet: I am so embarrassed. Everyone will think I did a poor job of raising my daughter.
Barry: Ignore what your mother is saying, Mandy. What you're wearing is absolutely fine with me.
Mandy: I thought you might enjoy it. It gives you a clear view of my ladies, after all. So now that you've seen them, would you like to make out?
Barry: I would. Believe me, I would really like nothing more than to make out with you, but I feel kind of odd when your mentally challenged brother is standing so close to us.
Jack: Quick, Mandy! The red wire or the blue wire? RED WIRE OR BLUE WIRE?
Barry: You really must have the patience of a saint.
Mandy: You really have no idea.
Jack: Mandyyyyyyyy red or blueeeeeee?
Not only did Mandy lose her chance to get with Barry thanks to her brother, the rest of her day turned out to be completely failtastic. She peed on herself, was forced to walk around in her own stink for a while since all the showers were being used, then got into a fight with the washing machine. She really could've used that kiss.
Later that night, Melvin and Tripp had a talk out in the garden.
Melvin: Look, I wanted to apologize properly for all the things that went on between me and Scarlet. You have no idea how tempting it is at my age when an attractive young lady flirts with you. I should have resisted since she is your wife. I'm sorry.
Tripp: Dad, it's ok. I understand. Just make sure it doesn't happen again.
The next morning, Corrine stopped by for a visit.
Alejandro: HOORAY! I know what this means!
Alejandro: Cuddle times. Oh yeah.
Mandy: Could you two please shove your tongues down each other's throats somewhere else? I'm trying to watch TV.
Corrine: With an uppity attitude like that, you're going to end up old and alone. You'll be a hunchback! Then nobody will love you!
Mandy: Uppity attitude? I don't have an uppity attitude, do I?
Jack: Hey, guys. You wrestling or something?
Jack: Although I don't understand why you're under the covers. That doesn't make any sense.
Alejandro: Ugh, just leave, Jack! You just had to ruin our first time, didn't you?
Jack: I'm not sure I understood any of that.
Alejandro: I'm sorry, babe. I hope you'll let me make it up to you.
At this time, downstairs...
Scarlet: What? You used to love to flirt. What happened to you?
Melvin: I got married. And you're married to my son. We can't flirt anymore.
Scarlet: Why not?
Melvin: Just because my wife has been cold and unloving to me recently doesn't mean that I...
Scarlet: Doesn't mean that you what?
MaryKay: Yes, Melvin. Are you sure to finish that statement?
MaryKay: Cold and unloving. You haven't even seen cold and unloving.
Melvin: Dear? You're walking into the stairs.
Tripp: Dad? I thought you said that this wasn't going to happen again.
Melvin: She came on to me. I refused her.
Tripp: Is this true?
MaryKay: Aahhh, happy couples. They don't know it won't last.
And indeed Corrine's happiness did not last for very long, although this was because of morning sickness.
That night, Melvin and MaryKay dreamed of life without one another.
And the next morning...
Melvin: I've been thinking, I can't go on like this. If my wife won't love me, then I guess it's ok to be with you.
Scarlet: What do you mean "be with you"? I never had any intention of being with you. It's just fooling around.
MaryKay: What the hell is wrong with you, Melvin? We're married. You're cheating on me.
Melvin: Well, can you blame me? Ever since we got married, you've acted really cold towards me. You don't want to be intimate. You don't even want to talk.
Melvin: My Agatha may have had her failings, but she did love me. I could deal with her little quirks. But with you, it's obvious you don't really like me, so why are you with me? Is it for the money?
MaryKay: Fine. You're right. You caught me. I don't want to be with you. I'm an evil woman, and I was only after you're money. So you know what? It's over between us.
MaryKay: One day, you'll look back on this and regret it.
Melvin: Really? I don't think I will.
MaryKay: Bye! See you in Hell!
Jack: Oh my God, did you hear grandpa and MaryKay yelling at each other? Are they really broken up?
Tripp: Yeah, after that fight I would say so.
The family actually took it pretty hard. Luckily for Mandy, Barry was over at the time.
Barry: I'm sorry about your grandparents, honey. I'm here for you if you need me.
Mandy: Aw, you're so sweet.
Sweet enough to earn himself a kiss.
Mandy: Hold that thought.
Mandy: Will you marry me?
Barry: With a rock that big, how could I say no?
This would be such a cute shot if it wasn't for the peanut gallery there in the background.
Jack: Hey, could you two keep it down over there. You're ruining my concentration.
I did think it was really adorable that the boys played video games with Melvin to cheer him up.
Scarlet: Hey boys! What are you doing?
Alejandro: Moooom, move. You're blocking the TV! You're going to be me killed!
Since she's not heir, Mandy and Barry had a private wedding in the kitchen.
Scarlet: Oh, I'm sorry, this TV?
Alejandro: I give up. It's no use if I can't see the picture.
Barry and Mandy: *gets married*
Mandy: Well, my husband and I are off to our own house. We'll be back probably never.
Melvin: You're sister got married? When did that happen? And what does she mean she's not coming back?
Jessie: Oh, sweet. Does this mean I can have her room?
Jessie: Jack, come here and give your brother a hug.
Jack: Not that I'm one to question free hugs, but what was that for?
Jessie: Well, I wanted to tell you that I think it's finally getting serious between me and Rosanna.
Jack: Really? So you broke up with those other girls? That's great!
Jessie: Well, not exactly. I was more thinking of keeping them around on the side, you know?
Jessie: But I will be married to Rosanna, and she will be my number one.
Jack: Somehow I don't think that will turn out very well for you.
Scarlet: Tripp, honey? We need to have a talk.
Tripp: Oh? Is this about how you don't find me attractive now that I'm getting older, so you're instead attempting to seduce my father?
Scarlet: Dear, he's older than you. And I never intended to do anything other than flirting with him. I'm sorry if I made you jealous.
Tripp: I guess I can forgive you.
Alejandro broke up this ~beautiful reconciliation~ by catching his ass on fire.
Alejandro: ohmygodOHMYGOD WILL SOMEONE PLEASE COME AND PUT THIS OUT
Mommy saves the day.
Scarlet: You know, you could help me put him out.
Tripp: Oooh, I can't. It's too terrible. I can't even watch it.
Tripp: Is he going to be ok? Do you think he'll be ok?
Scarlet: Will you shut up? I'm trying to save him!
Alejandro: Uh, mom? Dad? How does my hair look? My hair is my greatest asset. It isn't ruined, is it?
Scarlet and Tripp: No. It looks fine.
Alejandro: Oh thank Jeezus.
Alejandro: I really need to find another job.
Corrine, who is indeed pregnant, heard through the grapevine that Alejandro had an accident and came to check on him.
Corrine: I was so worried, so I rushed right over. Are you sure you're ok?
Alejandro: I'm more than ok. Let me show you.
Alejandro: Ta-da! Marry me?
Corrine: Of course!
Melvin: Ah, young love~
Inside, Tripp was having a serious discussion with his heir.
Tripp: Jack, there will come a time when you will fall in love and will want to settle down with a woman. Make sure that she'll stay with you even as you grow older.
Jack: Actually, dad, I already have someone that I really like...
Tripp: I don't think you are fully understanding me.
Tripp: This woman loves you now, but when you are becoming old and grey, will she stick by you, or will she hit on your elderly father instead?
Jack: Oh, this is something about you and mom, isn't it?
Tripp: And you have to think of your other responsibilities, too, like having children to carry on the family name.
Jack: Woah, woah, woah. Who said anything about having kids?
Outside, Alejandro and Corrine are getting married.
Scarlet: My oldest child is getting married and we aren't throwing a wedding reception? I will never let him live this down.
MELVIN STOP RUINING BEAUTIFUL PICTURES
Melvin: Well, I suppose this means that I will get to see those great-grandbabies after all.
Corrine: Well, I guess this means we're married~
Corrine: OH MY GOD I just had a thought! What if the baby is a dragon? WHAT WILL WE DO THEN? Alejandro, listen and make sure for me!
Alejandro: I don't know. I do hear some growling, but I don't think it sounds like animal growling.
Corrine: Well, I feel a little better.
Jack: I'll just move this right here.
Jack: There, now see what you can do against that mastermind move.
Corrine: You took an hour to move that damn pawn. If this is how the whole game is going to be, I'm not sure I want to play with you.
I guess she would rather go into labor.
Corrine: Alejandro, get the car!
Alejandro: Yay, baby!
Jack: Oh my God! I don't know what happened! One minute we were playing chess! The next minute she's screaming and going into labor! What do we do?
Tripp: Ugh. Gross.
Jack: No, really! What do we do?!
Tripp: You stand here and witness the miracle of life being brought into this world.
Jack: Are you crazy? She's screaming and totally in pain. You have to do something! You're supposed to be the responsible adult!
Corrine: Alejandro! DO. SOMETHING.
Alejandro: Well, I suppose I could invent something to help you out, but it might take a while.
Corrine: DO SOMETHING MORE PRODUCTIVE.
Alejandro: You know, I really should take a shower. I don't want the first thing my baby knows of me to be my stink. You guys stay here and make sure she's ok.
Jack: Actually, I haven't done my homework yet. I should go do that.
Tripp: And I need to... uh... I have to go and...
Tripp: Jack, start running and don't look back.
Corrine: Thanks for all your help, boys.
It's a boy! His name is Rainbow in honor of the Double Rainbow song which was playing on the radio at the time. He is excitable and insane (I think).
And now for your regular dose of lulz brought to you by myself!
and also by ohsims this time!
Also enjoy this video of the ending of Rainbow's birth (right after I named him). I was filming it for ohsims and the timing of the song + the birth made me LOL pretty hard. XD
