A telephone rings. A Dork answers it. Lucy says, "Susan, don't hang up. Carol and Lisa already did." She apologizes, which leads Susan to give a prissy little lecture on how Lucy has to prioritize her time. Man, if one of my friends talked to me like that, she'd be hearing the dial tone halfway through that speech. But Lucy just takes it. Ugh.
RevCam and SuperMom argue about who has Alzheimer's. Apparently Ginger is upset because Annie accused her of having the disease. Annie's just a little too vehement that her father is all right. I know, that's a sure sign that he's not. Well, I'm glad we finalized the end of that plot. Too bad we're only twenty-three minutes into the show.
Dopey's phone rings, but he isn't gonna answer it. If it's Chickenhead, he doesn't want her to think he's just sitting around waiting for her call. How refreshing! Somebody still does The Rules, and it's a man! His "light and breezy" act flies out the window, though, when Chickenhead leaves him a message and is about to hang up. After he leaps across the room to answer the phone, Chickenhead starts telling him how she's at a party being thrown by her new roommate, Brett. I'm just glad Shana is finally getting out a little. She's telling Dopey all about her three new guy roommates when he just hangs up the phone, right in the middle of her story. I've met some pretty rude people in my time, but as a group, these people take the cake. Dopey starts bitching to Simon that Shana has "moved into a frat house." Okaaay.
Mary is talking on the phone with The Amazing Robbie. Sigh! She's all excited as she tells him that her parents have agreed to let him come over for what she calls a "home date." At this point, I'm not even surprised when Robbie cuts her off to say it'll never work: "When your parents look at me, all they see is trouble." He believes the CamRents are stalling until Mary and Robbie give up on this romance. Mary claims she'll "never give up. [Robbie] means too much to [her]." When Robbie claims that Mary is "stronger" than he is, she asks, "What is that supposed to mean?" Yeah, really. Robbie is thoughtful enough to translate for us: it means he doesn't want to hang out at the CamPound. Mary tries to convey that she's upset by weirdly spacing out her words: "I'm -- getting a really -- bad feeling -- here. Are we breaking up?" Silence -- well, except for me cackling wickedly.
