I know it's annoying to be asked questions like this. Years ago, I tripped over a pile of laundry on my floor, and fell into a bookcase. Yes, I am incredibly clumsy, and slobby too, but that's not the point. I broke my finger, split my lip open, and ended up with a bunch of bruises on my arm. Maybe the ER doctor found it hard to believe that someone could be so klutzy as to fall into a bookcase (which is partly why I told everyone else later that I'd gotten into a bar brawl), but he kept asking and asking if someone was pushing me around. I wasn't even dating anyone then, but by the time the doctor was done questioning me, I half-believed that I'd been beaten up. Still, if someone had been abusing me, maybe the questions would have encouraged me to speak up about it and get help. I don't know. It's true that Dopey may be a little slow, but he is trying to help. Mel could just thank him for his concern and explain that he doesn't need to worry. Maybe she's just too annoyed that Dopey keeps bringing up his father as someone Mel should speak to. In any case, she does tell him to find a new study group.
Up in the twins' room, Annie makes a whispered phone call to RevCam. She's whispering because Julie is in the CamBoudoir, taking a nap. I don't think she's so much worried about waking up Julie as she is about having her find out she's been talking to Eric about Julie's marital problems, after Julie expressly asked her not to. You just know that Annie could never resist a challenge like that, no matter what, but she uses the excuse that if RevCam doesn't help, Julie will leave Hank and move into the CamPound. Eek! No wonder RevCam gets right on to the snooping.
Robbie's already acting like a possessive boyfriend as he waits by the front door for Lucy to come home. He wants to know if she's talked to Mary yet. When she says she hasn't, Robbie asks, "So we're not a couple yet?" Aw, it's time for their first fight. How cute! Lucy is afraid that Robbie doesn't want to date her openly, that he only wants a girlfriend he can "make out with in the backyard by the trash cans." And what a tempting prospect that must be! Lucy's not overly pleased with Robbie's responses, so she starts to second-guess whether they should even be dating. But I thought that they were already so deeply in love! And in the week they've been together, I've grown to care so much about their relationship. Why, this is almost as important and timeless a romance as that one Lucy had with the last guy she got engaged to after two weeks of dating. His name escapes me right now, but you know the guy I mean. Ruthie comes downstairs and tells them that she has already filled Mary in on the whole icky situation, and that Mary doesn't care. She adds that Mary called Robbie "a lazy dater," which is kind of funny, though it doesn't come anywhere close to adequately summing up the situation. Ruthie performs an irritating mock wedding ceremony, in which she declares Robbie and Lucy to be "a couple." I can't remember anyone caring so much about defining themselves as part of a "couple" since I was in junior high. Is Lucy just one of those losers who can't go three days without having a publicly acknowledged relationship? If so, that's pretty sad. Despite the fact that everything is now "official," neither Lucy nor Robbie is looking overly thrilled. Lucy questions their being together one more time, but her fears are subdued by Robbie's stupid assertion that he wants to take her on their "first official date." I hope Lucy doesn't turn into the type of person whose husband will cheat on her because he knows she can be bought off with two dozen long-stemmed roses. Lucy and Robbie hug. Out of sight of each other, they both overact the worried expressions, just in case the viewers haven't figured out already that this relationship is doomed.
