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.
Damn, it's Chickenhead. I'd hoped she was gone for good. She's walking down the hall to her apartment while Brett stalks her, trying to get her to admit she loves him. The dialogue isn't even worthy of an old romance novel; it would feel perfectly at home, though, in some of the romantic stories I attempted to write when I was a pre-teen drama princess. When Cluckie refuses to admit she loves Brett, he very manfully kisses her into submission. Swoon!
In the CamKitchen, Lucy and SuperMom continue their completely irritating debate over who is Lucy's true love. It's filler, really. Bring back the alligator show, I say. Lucy rudely leaves just before Burt's mom shows up at the kitchen door. Why this woman doesn't just ring the doorbell at the front door, like a normal person, is a mystery to me. Especially since it turns out that she and Annie have never met before. Whatever. SuperMom apologizes for her demon spawn's behaviour toward Burt. Burt's mom doesn't seem to care much about that; she's more interested in telling Annie, "If [Burt] really likes a girl, he gives her presents -- little presents that he steals from home." SuperMom gives back the crystal cat she confiscated from Ruthie earlier and advises Burt's mom to give the kids some space to work out their "relationship." I snicker at the irony of a Camden advising someone else to mind her own business.
Mary's on the phone with the amazingly scuzzy Robbie. She asks him about the phone message she received from someone named Cheryl, who wanted to discuss Robbie with her. The lying dirtball tells her he broke up with Cheryl a year ago and that Cheryl is hoping to win him back by making Mary leave him. Oh, okay, cool -- then Mary just won't call her back, tee hee. Mary, Robbie, whatever you do, please don't reproduce. The gene pool would never recover. Robbie encourages her to tell the CamRents the rest of the big secret, but Mary's afraid her father won't take it very well. Finally she defers to Robbie, as she always does. What's the big secret? Hmm, what could it be? Mary hangs up the phone and puts on an engagement ring. "Mrs. Robbie Palmer," she sighs, then smiles dreamily. I nearly miss the entire commercial break because I'm laughing so hard.
