Up in the treehouse, Lucy is absolutely devastated at having been put in her place by her mother, like, she's staring off into space and can barely get her voice above a whisper, even when Kevin strolls over to lecture her some more about how she was in the wrong and should apologize to her mother, and I'd be really really really happy if someone could explain to me why Lucy gives such a shit about Ruthie and the stupid party. Instead, she almost bursts into tears when Kevin sanctimoniously says that when people love each other, they sometimes have to tell each other when they're out of line, and Lucy stomps off, which I suppose is completely understandable when you think about having to put up with Kevin's self-righteousness.
Back at the batting cage, Cecilia shows up to annoy me. She tells Martin that she was on her way to the Camdens', and she figured she'd say hi. So she makes her Happy Face and says "hi" and instantly switches to Concerned Face and asks if anything's wrong, like that's quite a range of emotions for Asslee. Martin rants for a while about how he doesn't need another father, and Asslee does that thing where she just stands there and looks at the other person and nods or shakes her head or shrugs, which I think really speaks to her ability or lack thereof to remember her lines. So she lets slip that she agrees with RevCam that Martin should finish school and go to college before he plays pro ball, and you'd think Asslee wouldn't want to hasten his move into professional baseball since it would hasten his dumping her for some baseball groupie with less nasty bangs. Martin talks about Simon's finishing high school early and leaving early, and Cecilia says, "Simon was involved in a fatal car accident. He needed to get away," says Cecilia, like, how thankful am I that Sara M wasn't on vacation for that little slice of Very Special Episode, and Martin -- who isn't even acting his physical age, let alone the age he thinks he is "on the inside" -- says that Cecilia thinks it would be okay for him to go play professional baseball if he got in a car accident and killed a kid. That's Cecilia's cue to stomp off and leave the little asshole choking on it. He backs down, though, and apologizes and says that he was out of line, and she agrees and then starts defending RevCam, until Martin tells her it's none of RevCam's business, and she supposes he also thinks it's none of hers, and walks off.
