RevCam arrives at the Cardiac Care Unit of the hospital. An orderly inappropriately asks him if he's nervous. Oh, but I forgot that this is Glenoak, where orderlies practice medicine. Well, at least Dopey tries to. Since nobody on the show seems to have the slightest idea of what an orderly's actual job description is, perhaps this guy will be treating RevCam, in addition to leading him to the proper room. Hey, he's a renaissance man. Eric is just an annoying man.
Annie is down at the library, taking a break from essay grading to call RevCam. She doesn't make any effort to keep her voice down, but since the pay phone seems to be in the middle of a reading room, the patrons are probably used to a lot of noise by now. However, they're probably not used to the histrionic vocal force of Annie yelling at Lou, who is unfortunate enough to pick up the phone in the church office. When Lou tells her that Eric isn't there, Cruella confines herself to a demure and ladylike, "Eventually, I'm gonna find out what you and my husband are up to. And when I do, both of you are going to be in a world of trouble!" She then slams down the phone, as Lou cringes and sighs.
Mary's down at the Glenoak firehouse, trying to see the fire chief. He's got a secretary/bouncer who guards his privacy extremely well. I'm not sure that's strictly necessary, but maybe he's got hordes of groupies who are always trying to get his autograph or something. Mary keeps insisting that she has to speak to him, and I have to laugh when she keeps getting rebuffed. Finally, she sits down in the reception area and announces that she will wait to see the chief, despite the fact that his secretary has already told her the chief won't want to speak to her. Why this woman doesn't just call someone to haul pushy Mary out of the firehouse is beyond me.
Simon lets Lucy know that he's going out with Grandpa, Ruthie, and the twins. Lucy prissily asks if RevCam said they could leave, which prompts Gramps to deliver a pretty good smackdown. It's even sort of funny when Ruthie joins in, saying, "I took a vote, and Sam and David don't want you as their older sister either." It's funnier still when she adds, "And Happy doesn't like you." I could have done without the dumb twins piping up with, "Yeah, yeah, yeah," but I'm hoping the show will get cancelled before the brats are old enough to have many real lines. As everyone else troops out, Ruthie stays back to try to get Lucy to "apologize for being so inconsiderate and rude." The girls oh-so-maturely make faces at each other, and then Ruthie says, "Point, set, and match. How does it feel to be beaten by an eleven-year-old?" How she got that, I'll never know, because really, there are no winners here. Only losers. Sad, sad losers.
