Ruthie calls Peter on the Lame Clear Phone. Peter's bedroom must be crowded nowadays, considering it's the same set as Vincent's room. Not that Peter or Vincent would mind sharing a bedroom all that much, I suspect. Peter answers the phone, and his obvious disappointment at hearing Ruthie's voice is awesome. He tells her that he knows she has a boyfriend now, and he has a girlfriend. "We're in a committed relationship," says Peter. Well, I heard they got pinned. I was hoping they would. Now they're living at last. Goin' steady for good. Peter says there's really nothing else for them to say to each other, and they hang up. Peter may well have made up for all of last season with that one scene.
Back at the Treehouse, RevCam stammers that he'd be happy if Simon "decided to consider [his] life in terms of spiritual matters," and then gets cuts off by the ringing of Martin's cell phone before he can add that he'd rather Simon didn't offend any segment of 7th Heaven's audience by mentioning Jesus or Christianity or flashing around the Bible. We call Christianity "spiritual matters" and we call sex "being a husband" here. RevCam answers Martin's cell phone to the Musical Cue of Possible Bad News. Then the scene ends.
After the commercial, it's the next day. We may possibly also be in an alternate universe, as RevCam actually announces his arrival at the Treehouse, as opposed to his usual stealth method of entry. Martin says he didn't get in until two in the morning last night, so he didn't go to see RevCam. Two in the morning? You'd think he'd be tired the next morning, but that would also force Tyler Hoechlin to act and that's not going to happen. RevCam asks Martin what the hell he was doing for school that whole time, and Martin assumes that Simon told on him, which he didn't. RevCam tells Martin that he missed a call from his dad last night, and Martin gets all upset. He says that he knew RevCam wouldn't "approve" of his being out late with Zoe "even though it was only for school and there's [sic] witnesses," so he decided not to tell him about it at all. What school is telling its students to watch a meteor shower until two in the morning on a school night? And who are these witnesses? The only people I see in the park at two in the morning tend to be there because they don't have anywhere else to go. RevCam says it's too bad that Martin didn't trust RevCam to trust Martin, looking all sad about this lack of trust even though you know that if Martin had asked RevCam if he could stay out until two in the morning, RevCam would have said no about a thousand times. Martin says he "TOOK A RISK" by not asking RevCam for permission. "And while you were out TAKING A RISK, you missed an important call from your dad," says RevCam, making a few Mike Brady "I'm very disappointed in you" and "your actions have consequences" faces. Just keep rubbing salt in the kid's emotional wounds because he dared to defy you, RevCam, you ass. Martin asks what his dad was calling about. RevCam says he doesn't know; his dad wanted to talk to Martin personally. He'll try to call back tonight. RevCam also mentions that Marine Daddy was "upset" that RevCam didn't know where Martin was, although "that wasn't why he called." I guess RevCam thinks that his business is so damn important that soldiers in Iraq are kept up-to-date about all the CamPound goings-on, so Marine Daddy would immediately know that Martin snuck out and call to yell at him. Okay.
