Annie stands up and leaves the kitchen for no apparent reason. Then Matt walks into the house carrying some luggage. RevCam stares at him, looking very sad. As would you be, if Matt ever walked into your home. Matt tells RevCam not to fear the worst; Matt's "marriage" is "fine," and he's only here in Glenoak for his "med school." Apparently, Matt's dean's colleague lives in Glenoak, and he specializes in a birthing technique that the dean said Matt should go check it out. I'm sure this has nothing to do with the dean hating Matt ever since Annie harassed him at home about Thanksgiving family emergencies. It's just too bad that Barry Watson's return to half of this season was such a surprise to the writers that they weren't able to think of a plausible excuse for him to be back in Glenoak so often. And how polite of Matt to let the CamRents know that he would be coming home and staying with them! Anyway, it turns out that RevCam doesn't care about Matt's medical school crap because Ruthie is going out on her first date. Matt says it's a good thing he's there in case RevCam's "heart gives out." Jokes like that aren't funny, Matt, when the person you're telling them to ACTUALLY HAS A SERIOUS HEART CONDITION. RevCam doesn't seem to mind, though, so maybe I'm wrong about this. So on that note, I hope any pregnant mothers who have suffered a prior miscarriage didn't laugh so hard at that heart joke that they had another one!
Matt asks his dad about Ruthie's date, and if the CamRents like him and his family. RevCam says they do. Matt asks if Ruthie has been doing well in school and helping around the house. RevCam says she has. Hey, remember when, IN THIS EXACT SAME SCENE, Ruthie and RevCam said basically the same thing? RevCam says there's no way to stop Ruthie from dating. RevCam is just a little too sad about his daughter dating other men. ["RevCam also seems to have undergone a mind-wipe of some kind. Peter? Hello?" -- Sars]
