Robbie comes into the kitchen to ask if Dopey is home yet. When he sees the look on RevCam's face, he apologizes and asks if Eric wants him to go find Dopey. RevCam says no, but then shoots him a glare that seems to say, "Yes, of course I do! But let's wait until Annie's left the room to talk about it." Right on cue, SuperMom says she's going to get the twins cleaned up so she can "get ready to have a calm, wonderful day." The amount of fake cheer she manages to pack into that one sentence is astonishing. When RevCam doesn't scurry right up the stairs with her, she turns around and spits out, "Come on!" RevCam starts to go up the stairs, but when his shrew of a wife is out of sight, he turns back to Robbie and asks, "Got any idea about where to look for him?" Robbie offers to drive by the local hotels, which causes RevCam to flip out, saying, "He better not have been at a hotel, or I really will forbid him from going out with this Sarah again." This makes Robbie laugh right in his face. Robbie tries to explain to him, rather gently, that RevCam will have a hard time controlling his son's life when Dopey goes off to medical school. Dopey, med school! Ha-ha! Sorry. RevCam warns Robbie, "I'm not in a good mood about Matt staying out, so you just watch it. Tell the others to watch it too." His attempt to be a tough guy reminds me of how my rabbit, Mr. Bundle Buggy, used to try to intimidate my Swiffer by growling at it when I swiffed around his cage. He wasn't fooling anybody, and neither is Eric. I think Bundle Buggy eventually realized that growling at the Swiffer wasn't accomplishing anything, and now he always looks vaguely embarrassed when he sees it, as if he's hoping no one remembers his growling days. To be fair, Stephen Collins looks like he's playing RevCam's bad-assity for laughs here, and Robbie plays along, snickering when Eric turns his back.
Mary and Lucy come in, and Robbie warns them while pointing to RevCam, "Watch it -- not in a good mood." Mary and Lucy are far too uncool to see that this is funny. Stephen Collins smirks at Robbie and then leaves. The girls just want to gossip frantically about whether Dopey is married, but Robbie's just not that interested. Simon joins them in the CamKitchen, complaining because all the gossiping woke him up. Lucy demands to know how he can sleep "with everything going on." Simon's answer is a ridiculous, "I'm fifteen; I sleep." Is there actually a fifteen-year-old in the universe who would be caught dead saying something that stupid? I'm betting that Simon just wanted to sleep because it's an activity that's so much more enjoyable than speculating on Dopey's marital status. Come on -- what would you rather do? I rest my case. Simon suggests that the girls find Ruthie and bother the hell out of her until she tells them everything she knows.
