The opening credits have gotten a slight upgrade overall that is best compared to how Sears will give you new cabinet faces instead of entirely new cabinets. They may look better and save money, but underneath it all, they're still the same old termite-infested, poor-wood-quality cabinets. Catherine Hicks gets all new face shots that show off her horrible new hairstyle. And there are not one, but two, shots of characters playing baseball, and one of them is Martin. That's right -- he's back. Let the NotRobbie-ing begin!
This week's Opening Credits Timewaster is RevCam taking like six dishes out of the dishwasher and putting them away. You'd think that people who should be concerned about saving money wouldn't run the water- and electricity-consuming dishwasher until it was full, but no. Anyway, RevCam goes about his business with typical enthusiasm and aplomb as The Piano of Chores gets down. Annie walks in as RevCam is preparing to put the cutlery away. After RevCam proudly announces that he's done something around the house, Annie takes pleasure in informing him that all the dishes he just put away were dirty. The piano plays a musical interpretation of "D'oh!" How did RevCam not notice that the dishes were dirty? Isn't it totally obvious? It is in my dishwasher -- it smells and there's food all over the place and the dishes are filthy. Perhaps the dishes are left over from SamVid's last meal of "invisible breakfast." Annie expresses concern over Asslee's absence from dinner last night, and suspects that her froggy dad lied to her about where Asslee was when Annie asked him about it. "Bud. WISE! Errrrr," was what he said, and Annie just doesn't think that this adds up. She's kind of irritated about the whole thing, because Asslee didn't call to tell her she wasn't going to be at dinner and that's not polite. She should have called, told Annie she couldn't go to dinner, and then hung up on her without saying goodbye. That would have been polite. Annie asks RevCam if he thinks Asslee is spending too much time at the CamPound. RevCam says "yes," to which Annie glares at him angrily because she's a psycho. RevCam tries to recover by saying that Asslee does spend a lot of time with them, but it's not a problem for anyone. Especially not him, I'll bet. Annie says it is a problem for someone. At this point, Ruthie enters and, not noticing Annie's totally obvious pointing at her, says she's off to the rehab center with Peter, and she's taking Happy with her. Annie doesn't like this idea, especially since she thought she and Ruthie had plans to hang out at the Promenade today. "I'm sure you can get Asslee to go with you!" Ruthie says, smirking.
