And now we're in Simon's room, where a random friend of his is explaining that he has something to show Simon that's such a big deal, he woke up an hour early to be able to show it to Simon before school. And what is it? A notebook the friend found on bus with Simon's name written inside, surrounded by hearts. All over every page. "Do you know whose book this is?" Simon asks. I'm guessing it belongs to someone who has bad taste. Oh, and who's blind. And deaf. And stupid. Turns out the lucky notebook-owner is one "Beth Bagley." "Beth Bagley"? Ah, another astonishing abundance of alliteration. Do you think Friend's full name is Friend Frienderson? I do. Friend asks Simon what he's going to do; Simon says he'll return the notebook to Beth and hope that's the end of it. Um, and just why does Simon have to return the book? He wasn't the loser who found it and then woke up an hour early to show it to his friend. Oh, that's right -- this is the writer's pathetic excuse for a storyline for Simon. Well played, writers. Well played.
Meanwhile, Lucy and Mary, after probably getting lost on the staircase, have finally made their way down to the kitchen and told the CamRents their bathroom plan. Annie is a little too thrilled: "A bathroom?! I think that's a GREAT idea!!!" Can someone please give this poor woman a hobby? Practical patriarch RevCam is concerned that a bathroom will cost money. Annie says that they'll make the bathroom themselves, so it will cost "PRACTICALLY nothing!" She says all they'll have to pay for are the fixtures, and toilets only cost forty dollars. Yeah, and you can find those forty-dollar toilets right next to the five-foot drill bits in aisle No Way at your local Home Depot. RevCam agrees to let the girls build a bathroom as long as they know what they're doing, which they don't, and the girls kiss their mother and take off for school. Annie sighs in contentment, because she feeds off of that kind of validation. "Do you know how long it's been since I've sawed into a good piece of wood?" she asks RevCam. "Sometimes I forget how little it takes to make you happy," he responds. Oh...oh, my. There are a lot of possible jokes here, but they're all very graphic and immoral, so I'll just keep them here, in my head.
