Mac enters the kitchen and offers Ruthie some water. She accepts, and he pours it all seductively, just like Ruthie did that time she had a crush on Mac. What I don't understand is why the CamRents have a pitcher of water in their fridge for drinking what you can plainly see the ice and water dispenser on the fridge door. Mac and his three-quarter-length sleeve sweatshirt says that if Vincent doesn't show up, he'd be happy to spend Friday with Ruthie. Ruthie asks Mac what he's talking about. Mac says that, in high school, there's a big difference between being fifteen and seventeen. Wait, Ruthie's FIFTEEN? Holy crap! She looks, like, eight. I should be the last person to pick on someone for being a late bloomer, having been that myself, but damn! Also, I don't understand how a seventeen year-old dating a fifteen year-old is such a big deal, but sixteen-and-a-half-year-old Vincent dating a fifteen year-old isn't. Anyway, Mac says that he would date her if he weren't so old. Sherlock Ruthie deduces that Martin told Mac that she had a crush on him. She runs to the back door and opens it to reveal Martin trying to look like he wasn't just listening to Ruthie and Mac's conversation. Mackenzie Rosman attempts to act angry.
Upstairs, the CamConference has decided that this whole thing is RevCam's fault, because he let Ruthie go out on a date with a guy whose parents don't know anything about parenting. Oh, so NOW they find that objectionable. Ruthie enters and asks what's going on. I think there might be a drinking game in how many times this show has someone walk into an existing scene and ask for a recap of everything that just happened. SamVid announce that Ruthie is being stood up. Ruthie says that Matt told her that Vincent's father was having a medical problem. Lucy tells RevCam, Kevin, and SamVid to go check on Savannah. What did Savannah do to deserve that? The four guys leave. Annie and Lucy begin the consoling girl talk portion of the evening by saying that sometimes, guys get nervous about big plans and stand girls up. Doesn't Ruthie have, like, girlfriends to discuss these things with? Annie says that Lucy used to get stood up "all the time!" Lucy's like, "Well not all the time." Ha! I didn't think Annie could crush Lucy's self-esteem any more after saying that she was dependent and weak, but she did! Ruthie says she's going to wait for Vincent downstairs. In fact, she's going to wait for Vincent tonight, tomorrow, and for years and years until he comes over and she has her first "real" date. Ruthie departs, leaving Annie and Lucy looking very sad. I used to hate it when Ruthie played manipulating mind games with her family, but now I respect and admire her for it.
