Lucy tells Ruthie that Jeremy, the Latest Love of Her Life, is probably on the way back from an interview at Niagara University, which is probably somewhere near New York. Simon walks in and tells everyone that there's no word from Mary. They're all worried, because apparently she's supposed to call their house every hour to let them know that she's still okay after being kicked out and over to Buffalo. Lucy stares at her framed portrait of Jeremy in consternation.
Suddenly, Jeremy is waiting at the train station. Mary is there, too. She takes a seat next to him. He jokingly assures her that he isn't a freak -- that he's just a student trying to get from Niagara University to Glenoak. Mary says, "Tell me more so that I can dismember you and steal your wallet later." Either that or she says that the train to Glenoak will be there in ten minutes. The clarinet doesn't want Mary to go back to her parents' house, but I'm ambivalent. I can't see it affecting the quality of the program at all, so it won't, therefore, affect the quality of my life. I'm going to go on exactly as I have for the past few months, except that if I'm lucky, I'll win a karaoke contest or two. Mary will still be doomed, the show will still suck, and I will be several steps closer to my fulfilling my destiny.
After the movie, Cheryl asks Matt what he thought of the movie. Matt thought it was okay until the guy started waxing his legs. Yes, I can imagine that it was only "okay" for Matt until then. Cheryl says that she likes guys who understand women. They babble long enough for us to realize that Cheryl knows all about Matt's dating history. She teases him a little, making him wonder whether he'll get to date her again. The bait excites him and makes him want a kiss. He doesn't get one. Hold out, Cheryl. You're making him wild with desire. You'll be shackled to Matt before you know it. She jokes that she'll wax his legs for him. Hide the kink, Cheryl. Save it for the customers.
The next morning, Robbie is apologizing to Matt in the hall. Matt says nothing about his date with Cheryl. I wonder if it's because of the impediment under his lower lip. Maybe that dark button is keeping him from speaking the family-valued truth. Oh, but actually, it's only a little bit of hair. Matt can't resist being stupid, and so he says enough about hypothetical situations involving Cheryl to plant suspicion in Robbie's mind. Robbie finds the idea of their dating too unfathomably silly, though.
