Kevin and Lucy go over pages and pages of real estate listings. Lucy has a reason why she doesn't like every single house on the market. Kevin sighs. I don't care.
RevCam's about to leave for work when Matt calls. He finally tells RevCam the news about Mary filing for divorce. RevCam says he isn't surprised, because he always expected Mary to fail, which is probably why she's done it so many times. He's sad, but he's not surprised. Matt tells RevCam the rest of the news, which RevCam sums up nicely for us all: Mary is getting a divorce, giving up her son, and cutting off all ties with her horrible family. "It gets worse," says Matt. And just what could possibly be worse? "Now you have to tell Mom." RevCam closes his eyes in sadness and hangs up on his son. I love that telling Annie bad news ranks higher than your daughter getting divorced and cutting off all contact with you on the list of Camden Family Tragedies.
SamVid play checkers in a much more orderly fashion than any six-year-old I've ever seen. I think it's because they aren't human. Annie enters the room and attempts to buy their love back with offers of snacks or trips to the park or toy store, but they will not be moved. "We want our brothers and sisters back. You made them leave. Make them come back," say SamVid. And then, in what could be the best moment of this episode despite the fact that it involves two characters doing something in unison, SamVid turn away from their mother. Oh, how I laughed! Annie does not laugh, though.
Ruthie meets Vincent on the Promenade. "We need to talk," she tells him. They sit on a bench, and Ruthie says that she's been thinking a lot lately, especially after talking to Martin today. Vincent tries not to jump up and down with glee at the dumping he thinks is coming. He imagines his life without Ruthie. No more talking for hours on the phone or having to dance and sing with the baseball team! Dating mean blonde girls who lie about their mothers having cancer again! A nice life, indeed. But then Ruthie says that she thinks that now that Martin is leaving the house and therefore no longer serving as a faux brother to Ruthie, he's trying to get Ruthie and Vincent to break up so he can have Ruthie all to himself. "You must have misunderstood," says Vincent, as his dreams disappear in puffs of smoke. Ruthie says Martin is "really into" her. She thinks he would dump Zoe for her (not like it takes much for Martin to dump Zoe), and this would make her a "homewrecker," except not at all. She asks Vincent to talk to Martin and assure him that Ruthie and Vincent will never, ever be breaking up. Vincent just sits there, his hopes and dreams destroyed.
