Dopey's floundering a little in the CamKitchen too, not sure how to distract SuperMom, when Lucy rescues him by pretending she wants to talk to Annie. The best she can come up with on the spur of the moment, though, is to tell her mom she might get back together with Robbie. Her lying skills need a major overhaul.
Ruthie's doing a little better.. She says she wants to talk to her dad about "reproduction." That's a good topic -- nice and broad. It will take RevCam a while to narrow it down. Of course, when I was a kid, we'd already learned all the biological stuff about reproduction in school by grade five, but maybe RevCam doesn't know what they were teaching Ruthie at the dreadful Eleanor Roosevelt School. Ruthie's next question is pretty entertaining: "Why can't cats mate with dogs?" Fortunately for Ruthie, it has RevCam stumped. I'm not surprised.
Back at Hurl Central, Dopey rushes in with a change of clothes for Simon. Lucy follows on his heels to let everyone know that SuperMom is on her way up. When Annie knocks on the door, both Dopey and Mary ask, "Yes?" SuperMom wants to know why Dopey is in the bathroom with Mary. At first he says, "I don't know," which really is not a very good answer. Mary tries to assist him by adding, "He needed some help," which just brings up an entire cavalcade of thoroughly unpleasant mental images for me. Dopey gives us all a major shout-out when he says, "I hate my hair." He adds, somewhat unbelievably, "Mary's great with hair." Lucy pipes up in agreement, letting Annie in on the fact that she's in the bathroom too. Annie says she wants to talk to them when they're done with their hair.
RevCam's still struggling with Ruthie's question. All he can come up with is that cats and dogs don't like each other. I'll bet even Ruthie knows more about biology than he does, but to draw him out, she asks, "What if a cat was really attracted to a dog? What then?" Hey, maybe that's not such a far-out question. After all, my friend's rabbit used to hump her cat all the time, and according to my friend, both parties seemed quite happy with this arrangement. Still, it was probably more of a dominance thing. I'm sure the fact that there were no bunny-kitty babies wasn't entirely due to the fact that both animals were male. But what do I know? Let's hear what RevCam has to say about it. Ah, but we never get to hear his answer, since Annie interrupts nosily. Ruthie has one more question: "Can Happy still have puppies?" Unfortunately, she can, which tells us that the CamDorks never had her spayed -- not even after she's already had at least one litter of puppies already. Lovely. I guess birth control for pets is too hot a topic for 7H to address. Or else the Camdens really just are complete and utter poopnoddies. After Ruthie makes her escape, Annie opines to Eric, "Something's going on." Excellent detective abilities there, StuporMom.
