Lenny informs his brother that he won't allow him to join the theater troupe. Paul is pretty upset. I'm sure it's not helping him any to hear Lucy apologizing for not being able to help more. Seeing Lucy is hard for me at the best of times, so I can't imagine how I would feel about having to look at her if I'd just experienced a huge disappointment. Aw, but she's looking so sad that I almost feel sorry for her. Then I remember all the ways in which her character sucks now -- and the fact that she'll probably go back to being a total bimbo next week -- and I get over it.
After the commercial break, she's in the CamKitchen, telling her parents that she's talked to Diane Dupuy, the head of the Famous People Players, and that they've come up with a plan to help Paul. I really hope that plan was conceived more by Diane than Lucy, or I wouldn't hold out much chance for success. As Lucy turns to leave, she runs into Robbie. After giving him her "blessing" to date Roxanne, she says, "And with that, you can officially consider me out of your and Roxanne's love life. Let her know that, would you?" See -- already, I'm starting to dislike Lucy again.
Having overheard this conversation, RevCam asks Robbie if he likes Roxanne. Robbie explains about Roxanne hanging up on him and how he's scared she'll do it again. RevCam says, "I think you're more afraid that she won't hang up on you. Call her back. Take a chance." Wow. That was some actual good advice. And from Eric, no less! Wow.
Simon is not as happy with Eric's "help," though. After Cecilia leaves, he bitches out his father for getting involved in his business. Simon has apparently decided he's in love with Cecilia. I know, I know -- it's next to impossible to imagine that anyone could be in love with Cecilia. I'm with you on that one. Still, let's suspend our disbelief for a moment. Simon is in love with Cecilia, but he suspects she's in love with someone else. Because of that, he's been trying to avoid her, hoping to prove the old "out of sight, out of mind" adage. Now, thanks to RevCam, he has to be Cecilia's new best friend. He gets to listen to her talk about her boyfriend and everything! He does get in a good line, though, when he says, "Next week, I'm gonna have to give her a perm." Okay, but if you're making a spa night out of it, maybe she could shape your brows for you. See -- it's not all bad!
