After their practice, Mary and Molly chat. Molly innocently reveals that her dad is a scout for the WNBA. Mary gets all happy, because of course she believes that Molly's only purpose in life is to bring to fruition Mary's spur-of-the-moment dream. "Ah ha! So I was right!" says she. Molly tries to go with the flow and remarks, "It's good to be right."
When I get famous, I'm going to befriend Heather Locklear and get the name of her plastic surgeon because s/he does really good work.
Mary runs into her room to tell Lucy that "they're all down there!" The coaches have come over to talk to Mary's parents. Mary is convinced it's because they want her to start playing for the WNBA post-haste. Lucy expresses doubt. This is just like the episode in which Mary and Lucy argue upstairs while the CamRents talk to Robbie downstairs. It's making me yawn.
In the kitchen, Mr. Connelly says he wants his daughter to give the news to Mary. He goes to get Molly from their house or wherever. I wonder why he didn't bring her with him in the first place. Coach Cleary leaves so that the CamRents can be alone with Mary after the bomb is dropped on her.
In the living room, Ruthie turns off the VCR in disgust. She bitches to Simon that the queen of England has to work. She doesn't want to be queen anymore. I don't care. Lucy shows up and says she wants to be Annie when she grows up. "Wanna be? You are Mom," says Simon. Lucy denies it, but then says that if she turns out to be half the woman Annie is, she'll be happy. I guess she could do that by having 3.5 kids and coming up with half of a social reform plan to mull over for years on end. Simon and Ruthie send her to the kitchen to find out what's up with Mary's future.
Matt calls Shana's place. She's at the library again. The glam-rocker who passes for her answering service asks when Matt's bus is getting to town. Matt says something not at all pithy and the guy apologizes, explaining that he dislikes having to answer Matt's extremely frequent calls and give the bad news. He says that Shana has to study a lot because she's in pre-med. Matt asks why this guy is always home to answer the phone, then. Instead of telling Matt to mind his own freaking business, the guy says that he got kicked out of pre-med. Matt insincerely apologizes and tells the poor man's Rob Lowe that he's not going to visit Shana after all. "I think that's best," says This Guy Who Shall Remain Nameless. Like, "Hey, nameless dude, thanks for the free advice! Have you ever thought of forming a co-op for college students and drop-outs?" John's been in the room with Matt the whole time. Matt tells his roommate that he talked to an "old guy" who helped him see the light. Subsequently, Matt signed up to work as an orderly. He accuses John of paying the old guy to show up and tell Matt a fake story. John laughs and asks how Matt knew. Matt asks John to accompany him to the library. After some gentle homosexual flirting play, they get to the door and Matt says, "Pizza?!" So I guess Matt's not actually going to study or anything.
