Simon and Ruthie run down the stairs and go somewhere -- I'm not sure where. Then the ferrets run down the stairs, with Happy chasing after them. I indulge in a moment of quiet reflection to consider how much better this show would be if all the characters were played by ferrets.
Mary gets into Camille's car, and Camille hands her a dress. She says it's the same one Mary tried on in the mall earlier. Mary notes that the dress still has the security tag on it. It seems that even she can figure out that Camille stole it. Camille pries the security device off it, and Mary smiles. Doesn't take much peer pressure to sway those pure and wholesome Camdens, does it?
In the CamKitchen, Lucy's going on and on about how she's not sure she's qualified to choose a religion yet. Matt has rudely put his head down on the table. I guess since Lucy's comments actually are interesting and thought-provoking, he doesn't understand what's going on. He probably wants to go back to interrogating Mary, or to some other activity that doesn't overtax his limited mental faculties. When the CamRents walk in, he even more rudely exclaims, in sarcastic relief, "Oh, finally!" So being boorish to your sibling when she's asking your advice and talking about something important to her is a good family value? Okay, I wasn't aware of that. Now I know. RevCam goes to the cupboard to get a box of cereal. SuperMom notices that there are huge chunks chewed out of the box. She thinks it's mice, but we actually know it's the ferrets. Having that inside knowledge makes me feel so special. I hope you feel special too. Actually, now I feel more queasy, as I watch RevCam eat a handful of the ferret cereal. I hope he gets fleas.
Down at the pool hall, Tom is chatting with the bartender after finishing off his fifth glass of Slice soda. Despite all that sugar, Tom's not looking especially sprightly. As he's paying for his drinks, he comments that he'd thought he had a fifty in his wallet but that it's not there anymore. As he's putting on his jacket, the bartender asks, "Are you sure you're okay?" Tom replies, "I never said I was." That was pretty clever, actually.
Down at Crawford Clown College (I assume), Mary and Camille walk into the frat house. Maybe it's the loser frat, because nobody seems to be at their party. Camille gives an enthusiastic kiss to her date, Jason, while Mary looks on uncomfortably. Camille comes up for air, and to introduce Mary to her date, Max. He's a man of few, but stupid, words. He eyes Mary and comments, "Niiice." How flattering! He does think to offer her a "brewski," though, which she refuses. Camille tells Max to get both girls a beer. He takes off, and Jason goes with him, leaving Mary to bitch at Camille for misleading her into thinking there would be a party. When she begs Camille not to leave her alone with Max, Camille tells her to "stop being a baby" and "just relax." Nice friend. Jason leads Camille off, leaving Mary alone with Max. She uncomfortably takes off her jacket and lets herself be led over to the couch. I feel bad for her. No, really, I do.
