In the kitchen, Eric is staring intently at a cordless phone. SuperMom asks him if he's expecting a call from Mary. He is, but he's also hoping that someone will call to offer Robbie a job. Apparently, he's been using his influence to try to get people to hire The Amazing Robbie, and now he seems disappointed that no one is calling back immediately. He warns Annie that it may be a few weeks before Robbie has enough money to move out. She says she can live with that, but if her behaviour this episode is anything to judge by, well, then she's telling a bald-faced lie. I guess that's okay, though, because she can't help her violent mood swings. You see, we women are just flighty that way, you know? Yup, every last one of us. Unfortunately, not all of us have the steadying influence of RevCam's wise and manly guidance to help us out.
Robbie can't possibly be looking for a job, because every time we see him, he's performing some domestic task at the CamPound. This time, he's playing with the twins when Simon walks into the room. Robbie asks him for financial advice. I spit mineral water all over my keyboard, and just narrowly escape shorting out my computer. Writers, please, when you tell actual good jokes, you need to give them a bit of a set-up so I won't be taken by surprise like that! At first Simon thinks Robbie's making fun of him, which totally cracks me up again. But when he realizes that Robbie is serious, he's overjoyed, because no one else takes him seriously. Duh. Is that all it took to win Simon over? Apparently so. Simon asks Robbie what he needs. Dopey, who has been eavesdropping creepily from the doorway, says that Robbie "needs to stop dating Lucy." Robbie insists that he's not dating Lucy.
RevCam can't miss an opportunity to stick his nose in everyone's business, so he walks into the room also. Then Ruthie comes in and reiterates that Lucy and Robbie aren't dating. Okay, who are we missing? That's right -- Lucy. Oh, here she comes, and she says she's not dating Robbie. How tiresome. RevCam says that someone must call Mary to straighten this out, even though the viewers already know that there is nothing to straighten out. I mean, this episode could easily end now, and we're not even fourteen minutes into it. Robbie and Dopey get into a brief pissing match over who will call Mary, but Simon's in his "man of the house" mode and says that he will call. Ruthie insists it's all sorted out, so everyone but Robbie leaves. It turns out they're all running away from Annie, who comes into the room and asks where everyone is going. Robbie says they're all going to call Mary. SuperMom takes the twins away, shooting Robbie a nasty look as she leaves. Robbie alters his facial expression slightly, but I'm not sure what emotion he's trying to convey.
