Back at the high school, we get treated to another Martin-is-so-dedicated scene, with the coach shaking his head that Martin is practising on a Saturday. Martin says that if he's going to be playing in the major leagues, he doesn't want to embarrass his coach. "You could never embarrass me," says the coach. Yeah? Just wait for the scene he makes after you reveal that RevCam came to "see" you today. Not that we get to see this. I'd like to know what RevCam -- who is not a parent, relative, or guardian -- told the coach, and exactly what difference it would make to him, since he'd already be aware of the decisions Martin needs to make. Nope. Martin looks pensive. Then, commercials.
Martin's at the batting cages, swinging away at what he visualizes are little RevCam heads shooting out of the ball chucker. I highly recommend it as a way to get over the post-traumatic stress disorder that inevitably results from a viewing of this show. RevCam tries to talk to Martin, who doesn't respond at first, but then does to bitch that RevCam isn't his father, and that he's screwing up Martin's dream, and RevCam tries to tell Martin how much he cares, and blah blah blah, and Martin can take care of himself, and blah blah blah, and you kind of wonder why people don't lose it on RevCam like this all the time. "I may seem sixteen to you, but trust me, I'm a lot older on the inside," and the Battle for Most Preposterous Sentence Uttered by a Teenager on This Show has a new champeen. RevCam asks Martin what his father thinks, but Martin doesn't answer, and RevCam accuses Martin of not even emailing him yet, since he knows his dad will say the same thing RevCam is saying. So, RevCam, here's a thought: LET HIS DAD SAY IT. And Martin tells RevCam that he just needs his aunt to sign off on his decision, since she's his legal guardian while his dad is away in Iraq, like, maybe RevCam forgot where Martin's dad is. RevCam says that Martin's making a big mistake, and Martin comes right back: "No, you made the mistake." Sure did, about eight seasons ago.
