Upstairs in Mary's bedroom, she and Ruthie have a delightful sisterly bonding session. Translated, that of course means that Ruthie expends a whole lot of energy in trying to get Mary to admit that she's dating Captain Smith -- or "Jack," as Mary calls him when she slips up. Ruthie is relentless, not even backing down when Mary tries to distract her by offering to pretty the younger girl up for her date. Those Camdens are such a loving family.
Downstairs, the CamRents are desperately trying to convince themselves that Captain Jack is not dating Mary. Annie even offers to fix him up some "nice women" from the church. Hey, how about Serena? She was a charmer. Jack fends off the CamRents rather nicely while leaving them no doubt that he is indeed dating their daughter. He and Mary skip out for their date, leaving the stunned CamRents in their wake. Hey, now that Jack is dating a Camden, surely he'll want to move into the CamPound soon. With the Garage Treehouse taken, I'm not sure where he's going to sleep, though. In Robbie's room, perhaps? Maybe there's a dilapidated garden shed out by the trash cans?
As they're walking out the front door, Ruthie's little "boyfriend" walks in. It's that Jake kid from the Valentine's Day episode -- the guy who looks like a young Shaun Cassidy. Just as he asks the CamRents if Ruthie is home, Eisenhower starts squealing. Jake looks confused. No, Jake, that's not Ruthie. It's just her chimpanzee.
