In the CamKitchen, Robbie tells RevCam and SuperMom that he found a job. He also says that he used his savings to buy airline tickets for Annie and the twins to visit Annie's dad. He tells them to go for a day. I'm not sure why they can't go for a few weeks, seeing as how Annie's not needed anymore. I'm also a little perplexed by the way Robbie is calling Annie's father "Grandpa." Well, Annie's been successfully bought and paid for now. She accepts the tickets and even hugs Robbie. He leaves.
The phone rings, and in less than two seconds, Simon answers it, finds out who it is for, and comes down to the landing of the stairs to tell RevCam that Mary wants to speak to him. She thanks Eric for taking Robbie in and for "everything." He asks her if she's thinking of coming home, but she says she's not ready. I wouldn't be surprised if she comes back soon, though. Frankly, I'm not sure Jessica Biel would have much of a career without this show. At least Mary finally admits that she's been selfish. I'm actually slightly moved by this scene, surprisingly.
The next scene is stupid as hell, though, with Robbie finding Ruthie's card, which turns out to have a message inside: "I love you." Robbie asks her if she wrote the card. Ruthie tries to lay the blame on Lucy. Yeah, that's believable. So is the idea that Lucy would walk into the room at that exact moment, even though she has nothing in particular to say. Ruthie runs off, and Robbie asks Lucy about the card. Oh goody, it's another of those hilarious comic misunderstandings! But it's all cleared up quickly when Lucy says she didn't give him the card. She runs off too, leaving Robbie staring, bewildered, at the card. Maybe he thinks it's from RevCam. I could see Eric dotting his "I"s with little hearts.
Dopey returns to the CamPound. Eric and Annie are so thrilled about having talked to Mary that they just smile benevolently at him as they walk upstairs, holding hands. The idea comes into my head that they're going upstairs to have sex -- the CamRents, that is. But after half an hour or so of banging my head against a table, I'm able to rid myself of that vile thought.
The phone rings. Damn, I thought we'd seen the last of Mary for this episode. And I was hoping we'd heard the last of Dopey's dumb-ass theory that Lucy and Robbie are dating. But no, he trucks it out again. Mary gets him to admit that he got kicked out of his apartment by John. No one mentions the word "illegal," because Glenoak has no laws -- or at least none that interfere with any random whim of the writers. Mary also gets Dopey to admit that he's upset about Robbie living in the house. I suspect this whole conversation exists solely to set up the fact that most of the shows in coming weeks will deal with the conflict between Robbie and Dopey. Can't wait! It's still snowing in Buffalo. Mary asks to speak to Robbie, but Dopey just hangs up the phone on her.
