RevCam continues on to the attic, where Simon is sitting in front of a window with a pair of binoculars. Considering future stalking plots, this is either funny or very, very frightening. I vote for funny, especially when RevCam tries to distract him by asking if he wants to go get ice cream -- the sixth-season Camden code phrase for stalking. There's some boring chitchat about how Simon really, really wants a dog to wander into the yard, but I stopped caring about that -- well, pretty much the first time Simon mentioned it.
Mary's in the bathroom, getting all prettied up for her date with Jeff, when Dopey knocks on the door. He tries to tell her that she can't date his friends. To her credit, Mary basically tells him to blow it out his shorts. My favorite part is when she shoves him. Hard. ["And can I just ask why Dopey wouldn't rather have one of his friends take care of Mary-kissing duty so that he doesn't get stuck with it? Duh, Dopester." -- Sars]
The phone rings, distracting RevCam from his delightful Robert Frost book. Mrs. Bink is calling to tell him that his plan to scare Dopey has worked. In the background, a delivery is carting away the oxygen machine, and Mrs. Bink's cough has magically disappeared. So, the whole thing was a set-up to frighten Dopey out of smoking. Too bad there will never be another plot as clever on this show again. ["Mrs. Bink, however, does get a return engagement. Eileen Brennan was such a foxy bad-ass in The Sting; it's sad to see her reduced to guest shots on 7H. Anyway." -- Sars]
RevCam tries to get back into his lovely Robert Frost book, but before it can put him to sleep, he hears barking outside. As he rushes down the stairs, Annie rushes toward him. She's anxious to explain that she went to the pound, but she "was just going to look." RevCam points out that the pound is not a good place just to look. For once, he's absolutely right about something.
