Martin's in the garage apartment. His phone rings. It's Zoe, and it seems that she and Martin have gotten back together again, even though Martin hates her and dumped her last week. Also, we see Zoe sitting in her bedroom, and it seems that her family has rebounded nicely from their financial difficulties last week, when they couldn't even afford freaking food, as she's got some fancy-looking bedding resting atop her pillow-laden bed. Zoe needs Martin to help her with a homework assignment. She has to watch a meteor storm at 9:30, and, for some odd reason, she needs Martin to drive her somewhere to see it. Martin says he's not allowed out that late. That, and he hates her. Zoe says if Martin doesn't help her, she'll get an F on her assignment and she "can't afford to lower [her] average." Can't "afford" it? Is this going to be a show about government-issued grade stamps? Zoe tells Martin to just sneak out of the CamPound. "Be a man!" she says. "I need you. Come rescue me!" Oh, pathetic.
Lucy informs Kevin that Simon is in the house. She orders him to ask Simon about his STD test results, then report back to Lucy, because they need to talk about her. Well, of course. We can't devote our attention to a non-Lucy without then giving equal attention to Lucy. Kevin asks Lucy what she wants to talk about. "I've been thinking," she says. "I wish you wouldn't do that," Kevin responds. And that line pretty much sums up 7th Heaven's stance on healthy relationships. There's nothing more I can say here, really. The gist of Lucy's deal is that she wants to go back to "work" as an "Associate Pastor," but doesn't want to leave Savannah. Kevin has no advice for her, except that leaving Savannah with Annie when they're both working is not an option. He says it's because Savannah is their responsibility, but I think the real reason is that Kevin is well aware of the consequences of letting Annie raise a child, having married one of them. And I'm sure he's heard the story of when Annie forced her children to live in the unfinished garage apartment. Lucy doesn't understand why Kevin won't let Annie baby-sit, and asks what they're supposed to do with Savannah. "I don't know," says Kevin. It's called DAYCARE. Lots of working parents do it. COME ON. Lucy says she'll just ask Annie for free babysitting services. Kevin says it isn't right to stick Annie with their child. Every once in a while, something I agree with comes out of that guy's mouth.
