Eric opens the back door to leave and finds Mike there. Mike came back because he figured that Mary told Lucy about his mental past. RevCam's trying to convince Mike to come back in the morning. Mike says he really needs to talk to Lucy now. "You do a lot of work at Kerland, right? The nut house?" he asks Eric. Eric says that he does, but that he doesn't refer to it as "the nut house." Mike busts out the fact that he tried to commit suicide eighteen months before. RevCam knows Mike's doctor and respects him. Mike wants to tell Lucy the truth before she hears it from someone else. RevCam understands. He leans in and confides, "She's very fickle. You know? She's nice, but she's fickle. So if she changes her mind, don't take it personally. It could happen to anyone...it has happened." Mike just wants a chance. RevCam lets him into the living room and then yells Lucy's name up the stairs. Lucy comes down and furiously whispers to her dad, "Mary said he tried to commit suicide. He's a mental patient! Or, he was a mental patient..." RevCam tells her, "Have you ever been sick? Have you ever seen a doctor? Did the doctor help you get well?" Lucy thinks this over for half a second and then thanks her dad and hugs him. Way to speedily dispatch the subplot, y'all! But I have to say that it's nice that they addressed the issue at all.
On his way out again, RevCam runs into Matt and Simon. "I've got a phone number!" Simon carols, holding up the piece of paper. RevCam takes it and eats it. "Your mother told you not to hang out with Matt and pick up chicks," he scolds, and then leaves. Simon is distraught. Matt tells him that he's never too old or too cool to do what his mother says.
Upstairs, Annie's removing the offending page from Ruthie's diary and explaining why. Ruthie's cracking up. She always thought sex was so serious because of the serious face Annie made when discussing it. The sight of her parents having sex amused her, though. Dude, I feel queasy. They need to quit with this stuff. Annie says that while it's perfectly natural for "a married man and a married woman to make love to each other, it's not meant for anyone else to watch." What? Oh my gosh...people have been lying to me all this time, y'all! Ruthie says that she's going to make a concerted effort never to see her parents having sex again. No one can blame her. She snickers some more as Annie leaves the room.
