Simon looks particularly dorky and unappealing as he tries to perform some Backstreet Boys dance moves while walking down the stairs. Maybe the little girls understand, but I sure don't. As his first good deed, he talks Lucy into donating some items to a clothing drive his school is holding for the Kosovo refugees. She leaves, and Simon goes back to dancing while singing some kind of "happy" song. Ruthie comes out to investigate his off-key warblings: "What's all the racket? I've got the blues, and I don't want to be disturbed!" Aw, isn't that adorable! Retch. Simon tries to work his cheering-up magic on her, then glides away. Ruthie actually skips back to her room.
Chickenhead and SuperMom are folding laundry together while Chickenhead works up the courage to discuss Matt. Chickenhead describes the relationship problems as "serious," and says that she wants to know how close she and Matt are going to get before she'll feel comfortable airing her "dirty laundry" in front of him. She says that her mother is her "dirty laundry," and that she had a "crummy life" growing up. Oddly, she also bemoans the fact that she doesn't even know how to do laundry, and that doing laundry with Dopey feels too intimate: "Putting my dirty underwear in with Matt's dirty underwear when we haven't even seen each other's underwear." Ew, this is getting weirder by the minute. She says she doesn't care how "other people do laundry," and adds, "My goal isn't to be normal. My goal is to be me. I guess that's what I've been so afraid of talking about with Matt." Most of that makes very little sense to me. Oh, well, I won't let it bring me down. I just want to keep a smile on my face so that Simon will stay the hell away from me with his happy pep talks.
RevCam brings Henry Muranaka to Sachiko's, and Henry tells her he fought in WWII with her brother, Jum. She says, "I'm sorry the Reverend has wasted your time. I'm not interested in talking," and shuts the door on them. RevCam stands on the porch for a while, looking perplexed.
Having already stolen all the Camdens' food, it now looks like Dopey has moved on to cleaning out their closets as well. He's "liberating" some items from a closet when Lucy comes along, and they apologize to each other. I hate to say it, but Dopey and Lucy have way more sexual chemistry than Dopey and Chickenhead do. Anyway, Matt informs her that he and Chickenhead have not been doing the Posturepedic polka . Lucy says, "But you were doing laundry together!" I still don't see what's such a big deal about doing laundry with someone you're dating, but Lucy says, "I would have to be practically married to let some guy see my dirty clothes. Yuck!" This statement makes the light bulb go on in Dopey's brain (actually, I picture it as one of those two-watt jobs usually used in night-lights), and he hugs Lucy before rushing off.
