Ruthie and Peter are doing math, with Peter refusing to give Ruthie the answers. Maybe math has changed a little bit since I was in school, but can't recall ever doing math without a pencil in my hand. Ruthie's doing math simply by reading a textbook, it seems. Paris comes to collect Peter, who points out that they haven't had dessert yet, and wonders where his dad is, and where RevCam and Annie have disappeared to, and what those grunting noises coming from the basement are. No matter. On the way out, they have yet another of those who's-the-child-here wise-beyond-his-years conversations that end with Paris thanking her little angel Peter. And when they walk out the door, they say good night, and Cecilia says "'Night!" which was a line she managed not to forget, I guess, although maybe she forgot the "Good-" at the beginning of it. Roxanne's leaving too, but not before Cecilia buttonholes her to find out where Martin and the Marine are, and wonders what all the yelling was about, and it's really interesting that Cecilia heard Martin and the Marine yelling and yet still was unable to locate them, and Roxanne says that Martin saw Roxanne kissing his dad. She doesn't know what the big deal is (she can't even hazard a guess?), but she's going to let the two of them work it out.
Roxanne has to get through Betsy first, though, but she launches a pre-emptive strike by saying that the Marine said pretty much everything she wanted to hear about the war in a way that she could "totally" hear it, whatever that means. And she adds that she "totally" gets their point of view now (although she doesn't necessarily agree, which certainly surprises me). "Let's just say I learned a lot," Roxanne concludes. Betsy's all, "Learn this, bitch." "You aren't my brother's type, so back off." "Yeah, okay," says Roxanne, rather pleasantly, and then just as pleasantly asks if the Marine is seeing anybody. "In Iraq?" says Betsy, in a really no-duh type of voice. "Probably not." Hey, Brenda? Yeah, that line really works only if there are no women in the armed forces. And if there's no possibility that the Marine hooked up with an Iraqi woman, since it's common for servicemen to meet civilians while overseas. But you're not sexist and racist, are you? Never mind. Betsy asks if Roxanne is seeing anyone, and Roxanne can't just say "no" or "none of your business"; she has to explain the whole Chandler situation, and it makes Betsy laugh that Chandler wanted to marry Roxanne, since Chandler is currently in love with Paris. "Paris is in love with Vic," says Roxanne, which hardly seems true, but Betsy says it's good to know, and we zoom in so that Betsy can make a Scheming Face.
