The reason Julie has decided to grace the CamPound with her delightful presence is that she's upset because she fought with Hank. Whoop-de-fuckin'-doo. Maybe there's a viewer out there, somewhere, who finds that of any interest, but I sincerely doubt it. Besides, with Annie's helpful offer to save the day, you know nobody's going to get divorced on this show -- PG rating notwithstanding. Julie leaves the CamKitchen with no explanation, just as Ruthie walks in. Well, maybe there's your explanation for her departure, if you just read between the lines. Ruthie sure does own a lot of dreadful clothing, even for a little girl. She's wearing a fugly red shirt with a drawing of a horse's head on it. Annie leaves to pry into Julie's business some more. The phone rings, and Ruthie answers it. It's Mary, returning Lucy's call. Lucy's not around to talk to her, so Mary tries to force the news out of Ruthie. She doesn't have to try too hard. Ruthie hints at the Lucy and Robbie situation by saying, "Remember the guy with the big lips?" I think she's referring to this Jordan guy from long ago -- the one who dated both Lucy and Mary. You know, I don't think it's very nice of them to refer to Jordan's lips like that. I mean, what if the actor who played Jordan is watching the show? I know it's unlikely, but still.
Back at her apartment, Mel is saying goodbye to her study group members. Dopey keeps fussing over his knapsack until all the others have left. You'd think Mel would be anxious to get rid of him, too, but she just closes the front door and walks over to Matt, asking him why he looks so "strange." Mel, you obviously don't know him that well. His hair has always looked stupid and weird, and it's probably not very polite of you to mention it to his face. Oh, maybe she just meant that he looks upset. After scaring the hell out of her by saying he'd planned to have RevCam speak to her about something, Dopey launches into his speech about working at the free clinic, where he sees "a lot of battered women stuff." Even though his vocabulary could use some work, I can't really fault him for speaking up. Mel could handle this a little better, too, since she totally goes off on him for making assumptions about her relationship with her boyfriend.
