RevCam eventually gets the hint that no one wants to share pie with him, and he walks into the kitchen alone. Upon entering it, he suddenly becomes very nervous, probably because he hears the Violins of Suspense and knows something bad is going to happen. And it does -- suddenly, Ruthie, hidden behind the open refrigerator door, slams the door shut as loudly as she possibly can. RevCam jumps about five feet in the air but, unfortunately, does not die of a heart attack. He scolds Ruthie for sneaking around when her father has a bad heart, to which Ruthie laughs out a "sorry." She doesn't seem very sorry. In fact, it looks like she really enjoyed herself there, although she would have enjoyed herself a lot more had she succeeded in her mission to destroy her father's heart.
Kevin runs downstairs and looks disappointed when he sees that it's just Ruthie and RevCam making all that noise. I guess he would have rather faced some burglars. Who wouldn't? RevCam takes this opportunity to lecture Kevin about having a gun in the house again. Kevin says his gun is now safely put away in a "lockbox." Between Kevin and Al Gore, it seems like lockboxes are all the rage with robots these days. Anyway, RevCam says he doesn't care if the gun is in a lockbox; if it's in the house, it has to go. Kevin leaves to take care of it. I just don't understand where RevCam thought Kevin was storing his gun this whole time. He never seemed to have a problem when Kevin walked around the house, in uniform with his gun on his belt, before.
RevCam can't get enough bothering people, so he starts needling Ruthie about what she's doing up so late. Ruthie says she was up talking to Vincent on the phone. They had a "phone date." Uh oh! I hope Ruthie didn't have any premarital phone sex! RevCam is alarmed to hear that Ruthie's phone date lasted four hours. Kevin walks through the kitchen with his lockbox. Ruthie says she and Vincent have a lot to talk about since they don't really know each other, unlike RevCam and Annie, who have probably said all there is to say to each other by now. Have they, though? I don't think I've ever actually seen RevCam and Annie carry on a civil conversation, let alone a pleasant exchange of ideas and thoughts. Ruthie says she and Vincent were talking about being married (and not a moment too soon! They've been dating for what, two weeks? And Ruthie is pushing sixteen!) and how you must get sick of saying the same things over and over again. I guess you would, if you weren't as in love with the sound of your own voice as the Camdens are. RevCam tells Ruthie not to talk on the phone for four hours anymore. I'd just like to point out that I've never known a straight guy Vincent's age who was willing to talk on the phone for more than, like, ten minutes at a time. Or do the can-can with the entire varsity baseball team.
