"I know how important your mom is to you," Annie tells Melissa, except that Annie doesn't know that, since she has never met Melissa before. Shit, I've actually seen Melissa and I have no idea what her deal is with her mom. Is she trying to force an able-bodied woman into a nursing home so she won't have to deal with her anymore, or is she just over-concerned? Does she hate her oil company job, or just her boss? Why can't she just get married and start a family, like a good, normal woman? And would it really kill Nurse Ratched to let them watch the World Series? Annie promises that RevCam will get to the hospital, then hangs up the phone. I hope Melissa had nothing else she needed to say to RevCam. He says he'll be right back, to which Annie tells him that "if [he's] not right back, even if [he's] gone for a long time, [she'll] be right here for [him] when [he gets] home." Oh, yeah, she'll be waiting for him, all right. Don't think I've forgotten what happened the last time RevCam skipped dinner to hang out with an Evil Single Woman. That time, only fast food got thrown into the garbage disposal. This time, certain parts of the RevAnatomy are sure to follow. But RevCam is so happy to get away from Annie's Mental Breakdown Dead Momma Dinner that he doesn't even think about that. He does a small double fist-pump and leaves.
Annie turns to Lucy, who I forgot was even in this scene, and says "it's the right thing to do. It's the only thing to do." As long as Annie tells herself that after everything she does, she can continue to exist in her fantasy land, where she is a really good person. Annie says the dinner with everyone except Ruthie and RevCam will be "nice." "Gurgle," says Savannah, as she tries to escape the confines of her highchair.
Kevin yells at Ben, who apparently just told him that he's trying to get back together with Mary now that she left her husband and child. Because a woman who abandons her family is quite a catch. Suddenly, Ruthie runs out of the Pool Hall and into Kevin's arms. Vincent comes out, and she tearfully tells him to leave her alone, and that he's the worst boyfriend ever, which, take a look at reality, Ruthie: he's your ex-boyfriend. He dumped your ass! Kevin and Ben circle Vincent and make idle threats. Vincent leaves, happy to not have to give this emotionally unstable young lady a ride home.
Night has fallen over the CamPound. SamVid, Lucy, and Savannah hang out in the kitchen, and we start the scene off creepily with SamVid saying, "Can't she eat anything but you?" It's supposed to be this cute Family Circus-y "kids phrase things funny!" joke, but…no. Because, depending on how far in the gutter your mind is, this line either gives you a mental image of Savannah performing a sexual act on Lucy, or of Savannah ripping pieces of her mother's flesh from her arm and chewing them greedily as the blood dribbles down her chin. Not cute. Kevin comes home and asks where Annie is. Lucy says she's upstairs. Kevin asks how angry Annie is with Ruthie. Lucy says she's pretty angry. Don't forget disappointed! Lucy asks what's going on, and Kevin signals to her to get the twins out of the room. This is easily accomplished when Lucy asks them to get Savannah a toy.
