A Murphy girl apologizes to Simon and explains that she and her sister aren't actually so bad. They pretended to be bad in order to teach Simon and Luke a lesson. Yeah, tell that to the people from whose stuff you stole. I'm sure they'll understand. The two of them plan for another date and then kiss. The CamRents show up and break Simon's mack flow.
Matt comes home to his Swingin' Bachelor Pad, all forlorn. He went to meet Julia but she wasn't there. John is smiling. Why? Because Julia's waiting for Matt in the other room. John tells Matt not to let this one get away, and then he makes himself scarce. Julia explains the contrived reasons she's there and then kisses Dopey. She was wearing the wedding dress for a photo shoot. She's leaving town the next morning. Matt asks if she wants to go out and get some coffee. Julia shakes her head. Guess what Matt says then? You'll never guess. Give up? Okay. He says, "Do you wanna stay and make out like crazy 'til your plane leaves?" Julia kisses him. I guess it's possible that she's a virgin who likes to make out with strangers, too. I mean, it's possible in the 7th Heaven world.
Can this episode please hurry up and end? Lucy asks Mike if the girlfriend-in-another-country story is true. He gives a PSA about suicide not being romantic. Then the CamRents show up at the dance so they can scold Ruthie. They bend down to her level and ask what was up with her lying. Ruthie makes a speech about missing Mary, so the CamRents' guilty consciences keep them from punishing her. The DJ puts on a fricking Ricky Nelson song, and everyone dances. That's punishment enough for me.
Next week: Oh, dang, y'all -- watch out! Simon's in the 'hood! Not only does he start hanging with "the wrong crowd," he gets the black-and-white Mary treatment on the title screen! His new friends wear knitted caps and big silver chains. One of them slaps Lucy and then threatens to teach Annie about respect. Ooh...I'm scared! I didn't know Glenoak had boyz in its 'hoods!
