Simon comes in and unveils his super-duper plan to make enough money to support Happy's shoe-chewing habit: he will run a lemonade stand. What a terrible idea. RevCam backs me up on that, pointing out that Simon has run lemonade stands before and never made even enough money to pay for the ingredients. He suggests that Simon think of a community service he could perform in lieu of replacing Eric's shoes. Simon comes up with another plan that sucks: he wants to give the lemonade away for free between Sunday school and the church service, "and then maybe so many people won't go home." That was sort of funny, I guess. Annie certainly thought so.
Mary is helping Lucy by convincing her to call Jimmy and tell him that when he questioned her earlier, she didn't know what to say and may have given him the wrong impression. Lucy takes the phone and repeats what Mary just told her. She claims she got the answering machine, even though there wasn't even enough time for a machine to have picked up and played an outgoing message. I'm not sure if Lucy's lying or if this scene was just poorly directed.
It's a cozy domestic scene in the CamPound living room. Annie is reading to Ruthie while RevCam types something on his laptop. He's surfing porn, I assume. Dopey comes in and asks if he can go to the library. RevCam is skeptical because it's Friday night. He says Dopey can't go anywhere for another three weeks, although he will make an exception if Dopey wants to join him for a game of pool. Dopey says he's not that desperate. Hee hee. The doorbell rings, and the whole CamClan of busybodies congregates at the front door, thinking it's Mary's date. Oh, gross -- it's that lackluster Jimmy Moon dude, looking a little intimidated by an entire houseful of Camdens staring at him. Dopey, who suffers from the delusion that Lucy's dating life is in some way his business, shakes his head at RevCam. Lucy waves weakly at Jimmy.
The CamRents are in bed. Eric makes all sorts of excuses to go downstairs. I didn't know what the hell he was trying to do, but Annie figures out that he's waiting up for Mary. She suggests that he not make it so obvious, or Mary will think he doesn't trust her. We learn that Mary's curfew is 11:00, which seems pretty liberal for parents as smothering as the CamRents. I would have imagined something like 9:00.
RevCam starts to go downstairs when he runs into Lucy. He denies that he's checking up on Mary, and he changes the subject to say that her friend Jimmy seemed nice. Lucy launches into a stupid speech that Mary had told her earlier to use on the CamRents -- something about Jimmy just being a guy from her class who needed a homework assignment. RevCam tells her that he and Lucy are both bad liars. They apologize to each other for lying, and RevCam goes downstairs.
