Ew, it all just gets creepier as RevCam and Simon engage in a little freak-to-freak discussion of Deena. Simon can't understand Deena's erratic behaviour. I can't really understand it either, but unlike Simon, I don't even have to pretend to care. In a nutshell, Simon's confusion stems from the fact that Deena wants to break up with him but won't really tell him why. He says he tried to give her a promise ring, though he's not exactly sure what it promises. I humbly suggest that it stand for a promise from the writers to never, ever bring up that hickey plot again. Ever. RevCam says, "I didn't know things had gotten that serious." Simon says, "Well, I thought that after I had bit her on the neck, you guys had kind of gotten the idea that things were serious between us." I don't know about that, but the entire detestable love-bite plot did help to give rise to my new theory that perhaps the writers have made some kind of pact with Beelzebub in which they must make religion look thoroughly unpalatable through shows like this one. In return, they were granted eternal youth sometime in the early 1800s. I figure they're probably drawing on their own childhood experiences for material; hence, we get the plots so tame that they would be better suited to the Regency period. I ponder my theory while RevCam mulls over the Deena situation for a while.
SuperMom continues her Ann Landers shtick by advising Ruthie to find a way to win back that little Burt fellow. She also takes away the glass cat Burt had given Ruthie.
Over at Dopey's swingin' bachelor pad, it looks like John is again down to just one line per show, though at least this time he gets to repeat the line like a mantra. While Dopey manufactures with reasons to stay with Shana, John keeps saying, "Break up with Shana." He pushes Dopey out the door and tells him not to come back until he's given Shana the ol' heave-ho. I wish I could say this scene is funny, but I can't.
At the CamPound, Simon opens the door to Cynthia, who relays the "good" "news" that Deena doesn't really want to break up with him. The bad news is that Deena is moving "back east" at the end of the week. Simon expresses his deep dismay by continuing to hold the completely blank facial expression that's served him so well throughout the rest of this scene.
