Annie tries to comfort Lucy, who is sad because she thinks her grandparents don't like her very much. SuperMom says, "That's not true. They love you very much." Really? Because they've sure been giving the impression that it's, you know, the not-liking-Lucy-very-much thing. Still, Lucy allows herself to be comforted by Annie. All is happy until Lucy says, "I'm glad you're getting your rings back." Lucy adds that she assumes this is why her grandparents were going to the hardware store. Annie panics and runs out of the room, calling for Eric. She explains the situation to him, and they all run off.
It looks like George is unlocking a car door with a wire coat hanger. I didn't know you could do that with any car newer than, say, 1978. In any case, he gets the door open, and he, Simon, and Ruthie pile in. Simon's sitting in the driver's seat, erroneously believing himself to be cool, when RevCam comes over. He's pissed. George has the guts to stick up for Simon, and the smarts to garner sympathy from the CamRents by sadly saying, "Maybe you should just send me back to the orphanage." RevCam sends them all upstairs and drives off to find his parents. As he leaves, we see the front bumper, which has a little more than just a scratch on it. In fact, it's banged in almost as much as the bumper of a car that killed somebody on the episode of Law and Order I just watched. Dopey distracts SuperMom so she won't see the damage.
Down at everybody's favourite place -- the hardware store! -- RevCam is walking around with a toilet plunger. I guess toilet plungers are supposed to be funny or something. He goes up to the cashier, that Emma Houten woman, and asks, "You wouldn't happen to have seen an incredibly intimidating man with white hair, and a tall, arrogant woman with perfect posture, have you?" Emma says she hasn't, and gives him a strange explanation of how she always notices couples since her husband just recently died. RevCam expresses some perfunctory sympathy before launching into a pitch to buy her ring necklace. Emma declines his thoughtful offer, claiming that the rings "mean a lot" to her. Why, I couldn't tell you. And don't you think Emma would be getting a little suspicious about her son right now? But more likely, she just thinks the entire Camden family is loopy.
