Oops, I guess Annie can't use the phone right now anyway, because down in the CamKitchen, Kevin is struggling to keep it away from Lucy before she can call his boss with her dumb-ass questions and pretty effectively ruin his career forever. He uses a little diversionary tactic of his own to distract her, overpowering her with a kiss. Swoon! It's just like in all the very best Harlequin Romance novels from the early '80s! The heroine really wants the hero, but she's too silly to know her own mind, so she needs to be subdued by some uninvited kissing. That's exactly the sort of message this show needs to be sending out to impressionable young girls, and we should all applaud Brenda for doing so. Anyone? Anyone? You know, I'm not hearing any applause.
After Lucy storms off yet again, Robbie walks into the kitchen and asks Kevin, "How's it going?" Kevin morosely starts to tell his tale of woe, but Robbie cuts him off to say, "I didn't really want to know. I was just saying, 'How's it going?'" Brenda, please don't give Robbie any storylines this year. Just have him walk around the house saying things like that to various Camdens. It would make the show bearable -- possibly even good.
Alas, it is not to be, since Robbie runs into Rachel Blanchard, whose character turns out to be named Roxanne. And of course, Robbie knew her in the seventh grade. Golly, what are the odds. Although considering there are only four recognized states in the CamVerse, perhaps the odds aren't altogether astronomical. Roxanne and Robbie exchange puerile flirtatious banter for a bit before Robbie confesses, "You know, I think I spent the entire seventh grade thinking about making out with you." Okay, Robbie, that was probably appropriate when you were twelve, but these days, don't you wish that the making out could take place on a CamCouch while the entire family looks on? A tantalizing prospect, I know. Go on -- broaden your horizons.
Lucy is upstairs in her bedroom, using the fugly see-through phone to call Detective Michaels. Man, I sure hope there's room in RevCam's psychiatric ward ambulance for Lucy as well. Lucy's call is not going through because Kevin has picked up another extension. He tries to persuade her to get to know Roxanne, but Lucy's still being pissy. Finally, Ruthie snatches the phone away and hangs up, saying, "Why don't you just marry him and get it over with?" Lucy's reply -- "Maybe I don't want to get married" -- shocks me to the core. Maybe if Kevin forces some more of his manly kisses on her, it will change her mind? It's probably worth a shot, Kevin. Ruthie tries to give Lucy some genuinely good advice, and never once does she come right out and baldly state that Lucy is crazy as a loon. Maybe I've misjudged Ruthie. She may be nicer than I think.
