At the Glenoak PD, Kevin tells a smarmy Griffith that he has thirty-five outstanding parking tickets and two moving violations. Det. Michaels pulls Kevin aside and tells him that Griffith's dad is a major contributor to the police chief's campaign. Did they just acknowledge that the Glenoak PD is corrupt and takes bribes? I'd like to extend another warm welcome to Brenda, and encourage her to check out the "Letters to Brenda Hampton" thread in the forums, where she'll find many helpful suggestions about how the show could be improved. Roxanne trots up and says that Gracie is missing, and her dad is holding the Glenoak PD responsible, since their detaining of Griffith meant that he couldn't perform his self-appointed role of Watcher of the Parking Lot. Mr. Miller is currently with his best friend, The Chief, trying to set up an Amber Alert. The prime suspect is Mizzz Jones. Hey, do you think they've put out an Amber Alert for Robbie yet?
RevCam lies on the couch with a cold washcloth on his head while Ruthie nags at him to attend a school board meeting about Mizzz tomorrow. I think the cause and effect relationship of Ruthie and RevCam's headache is fairly obvious here. Annie walks in sporting a pair of ugly-ass jeans with a flower bouquet embroidered in beads on one of the legs, and nags at RevCam to talk to Mizzz. He says that he would, but she doesn't want to see him. Annie asks him when that ever stopped him before. "You know me so well!" RevCam says. Can't his family just leave him alone until he feels better? Jeez.
Asslee walks right on into the CamKitchen like she owns it and tells Annie that she has to talk to her about Martin and how he's mad at her. Does anyone care about this subplot when we could be hearing about Mizzz and all the cool stuff she's doing? I didn't think so.
RevCam gets out of his car, which he parked in the school parking lot. I guess they put an addendum onto that district-wide regulation that gave RevCam immunity. Det. Michaels is there, as is Mr. Miller, who informs Eric that his daughter has been kidnapped by her principal, and it's all Kevin's fault. Then he gets real close to RevCam and tells him that Gracie is "not well." "Your daughter, Gracie, isn't well?" RevCam repeats. It's hard to hear what other people are saying when you're concentrating so intently on the speech coming out of your own ass, you know. Mr. Miller explains that Gracie got an early acceptance to a school "back east" with a basketball scholarship (man, colleges are just giving early acceptances away these days), but he and her mother didn't think she was ready to go to college, so they made her turn it down. She's been angry at them ever since, and threatening to run away. So Mr. Miller had his son watch over her when he and his wife couldn't. Mr. Miller says that Gracie would do "anything" to get away from her family, including "making up stuff" about them. Oooh, a twist has been thrown into this storyline! I don't know who I should believe -- Mr. Miller or Gracie. Oh wait, I totally know I shouldn't believe Mr. Miller because I possess a modicum of intelligence. But nice try, Brenda. Mr. Miller walks away from RevCam and up to Det. Michaels, where he informs him that he suspects that RevCam knows something about Gracie that he isn't saying. Ha! RevCam doesn't know anything! He's been completely out of the loop this whole episode! I love it! Det. Michaels and RevCam take a knee and share their thoughts on the situation. RevCam senses that Mr. Miller is lying. Who does he think he is, Deanna Troi?
