Oh, God -- having aspired to something genuinely good for a few minutes, the show has sunk even further than ever. There's a shirtless Kevin lifting a little, tiny barbell up in the Garage Prayer Closet (heh -- thanks, Gustave). That weight must be incredibly dense, though, because Kevin's working up quite the sweat. At least, he has a heavy, glossy shine all over his torso; his face is pretty dry. What did they oil him up with, anyway? Some of Dopey's leftover hair dirtification products from last season? You probably don't want to hear any "greased pig" jokes, do you? Robbie drops by for a visit and reveals that he knows what Kevin and Lucy have been fighting about. He wants to know why Kevin didn't just tell Lucy that Robbie had asked him to fix the traffic ticket. Kevin pretends that he had a motivation, and that it was a noble one. He says something about not wanting to spoil Lucy's opinion of Robbie, since she thinks of him as a brother. Ew! Do most women actually make out with their brothers? Maybe it's a Glenoak thing. After heartwarming promises to try to hate each other less, the guys part company. I'm hoping Kevin's on his way to the shower.
RevCam hasn't told Lucy he loves her yet, has he? He checks in on her in her room, where she's still trying to come up with something that qualifies as an accomplishment. RevCam -- sounding a lot like Mike Brady -- tells her, "Sometimes a person can accomplish a great deal, but to the outside world, and maybe even to the person, it doesn't seem like they've accomplished anything." Aw, that's really very sweet -- even if it is complete and utter bullshit. RevCam strains his diplomacy skills even further, claiming that Lucy is "intelligent, kind and sweet." Oh, brother. He continues with, "You'd do anything to help anyone. You're a wonderful daughter and a caring sister. You have principles, and no matter how hard it is for you, you live by them." Do you recognize Lucy in there? Seriously, I mean, like, anywhere? Because I sure don't. And I'm not even trying to be remotely facetious right now. Lucy encourages him to talk to Annie, and he in turn encourages her to talk to Kevin. I don't know what's creepier here -- the fact that Kevin is eavesdropping or the fact that RevCam didn't encourage Lucy to patch things up with Kevin until he noticed the pea-brained moron standing by the door. Or maybe it's that as Lucy says, "I've been acting like a complete jerk," Kevin smiles in his creepy, Promise Keepers way. When he says that he will deign to talk to her, she acts like she's received a rare and precious gift.
