Martin sneaks into the CamPound, where RevCam and Annie are, naturally, waiting for him at the kitchen table. I've never noticed this before, but why do the CamRents have a lit china cabinet, and why is it currently lit, and why is it displaying what appears to be a Fiestaware cookie jar? It's still a better décor decision than that phonograph we'll see later on, though. Martin apologizes both for not calling and for coming home late, and Annie and RevCam ask what happened with Martha, explaining that they heard all about her from Kevin. "Did Kevin tell you this whole thing is his fault?" says Martin, because when you shift the blame, you can sometimes get away with things, right? Martin also says that he doesn't have a curfew, and he and Martha just talked. Annie says she thinks it's a sign of "trouble." Yes; first you assist the elderly, then you drink half a light beer, and then it's off to Buffalo for you! Martin snaps that he needs to get some sleep for school, and takes off. The CamRents sip their coffee sadly. The clarinets play, and my roommate walks through the living room and says, "Oh! It's the Fanfare of Parental Despair!"
The next day at school, Mac is pissed at Martin for ditching him. But he's also curious if anything happened between Martin and Martha. Martin denies everything and says that he's going to tell Martha that he's not a cop as soon as he gets home. Mac says he can tell her now, and points out that she's walking up the stairs. Before Martin can escape, Martha spots him and asks what he's doing there. Before Martin can answer, she assumes he's working undercover. She explains that she's a substitute teacher (like anyone thought she was a student), and that their secret is safe with her. She's certainly making it no secret that she's eighty, what with the dowdy pink sweater, ugly flower brooch, and positively antique pearl necklace she's sporting. She asks Martin to call her later.
