Simon's over at Dopey's place, doing the "guy stuff" he was talking about earlier, except in this case, the "guy stuff" turns out to be Dopey morosely staring into space, thinking about Chickenhead. He can't go out in case she calls; he won't watch TV because it reminds him of her. I think this is all supposed to be funny, but trust me, it's not. John makes a brief appearance, gets creeped out by Dopey, and leaves again. Let's take a cue from John, shall we?
Back at the bunker -- er, the CamPound, RevCam notices that Lucy seems "a little low." Lucy says, "I kinda lied to my Habitat friends so I could go out with this really cute guy." No, Lucy, you didn't lie to them; you just said, "Something came up." That's not very ethical, but it's not a lie, either. Man, you'd think with all the high-calibre moralizing the Camdens do, they'd have figured out these distinctions by now. Lucy explains that her friends saw her and now they know that she lied. "Not 'kinda lied' but 'lied,' right?" asks RevCam. Wait a second, Eric, I thought we just established that -- oh, never mind. What's the use? Lucy's sorry she did it, and RevCam says, "Don't tell me; tell your friends." Lucy thanks him (for what, exactly?) and leaves.
RevCam moves on to help Mary next. He asks her if they can talk, but she just rolls her eyes and turns her head away. Rude git. RevCam tells her that if Robbie visits her at the house, so the CamRents can get to know him better, they will "revisit the dating issue." Mary agrees that that's fair, and the background music swells happily as another problem gets resolved through Eric's special RevMagic.
Oh, lovely, it's comic relief time. Ruthie's pulling canned goods out of the cupboard, and Ginger asks, "What am I supposed to be helping you with?" It's Ruthie's millennium project, which has something to do with canned goods and learning to cook over a fire, since "Ben says after the millennium, there won't be any more stoves." Ginger says, "Ah, who's Ben?" Ruthie just looks at her rudely, and I take it to mean she's already explained about Ben at least once. Hmm, is this supposed to mean Ginger does have Alzheimer's? Or has she just stopped listening to the little troglodyte? I often do that, and I don't have Alzheimer's, despite the fact that I've been developing quite a talent for completely forgetting most of these episodes once I'm done recapping them. I just call that an efficient use of my brain cells, though.
