When Robert joins a cult, the Inner Path, Raymond points out their idiot cousin Gerard is already a member. Although Robert eventually sees through the group (particularly when he realises the leaders were really after Raymond, to be their spokesman), he allows himself to be the subject of a fake intervention, in order to stop Debra and Marie squabbling.
Debra & Raymond go out on Saturday, but to different places. Marie thinks they are having marital problems. Ray did not have fun with his friends. He goes with Debra to a book reading and does not enjoy that either.
Now that Robert is back with Amy, the family turns to another problem. Marie's eyes. Her eye sight is getting worse, so Debra asks her to go get glasses. Not only do the glasses help Marie's eyes, but she starts seeing things that no one else can see.
Debra signs up for charity work and signs up Ray for an hour of charity at the hospital. He is reluctant but goes. Turns out the patients enjoy his humor and sports information and he enjoys going. Debra is upset at how often he is gone.
Ray and Frank persuade Robert to make a complete hash of designing his and Amy's wedding invitations, so that Amy will step in and take over; unfortunately, the plan backfires and the invitations go out, warts 'n' all. Worse, Debra realises Ray has been faking incompetence for years to avoid performing his household duties.
Ray reluctantly takes his daughter to her friend Molly's for a sleepover, fearing another run-in with Molly's mother, Peggy (previously seen in season six's "Cookies"). A casual pat on the behind leads Ray to believe Peggy is coming on to him.
When a friend of Frank and Marie dies, Marie tells Frank that it had been the woman Marie had picked out to marry him if she died first; Ray and Debra then get into a debate about who they would choose to take their place if they died.
