Admissions Guy 1: They're calling her an "angel" just because she has Down's Syndrome?
Admissions Guy 2: I was okay with the dying kid being an angel, but this is kind of weird.
"Victim" Lisa was apparently abused by her mother's boyfriend, but she gets no picture or further explanation. "Boozers" Jill and Barb wanted Lucy to go out drinking with them, but then Mary ruined their good time.
Admissions Guy 1: Jill and Barb sound more like Lucy's friends than Mary's.
Admissions Guy 2: I can't believe you're even questioning the logic at this point.
"The Devil's advocates" are Frankie and Johnny, of course, whose married life included "a lot of pot" and thus sounds totally awesome. Simon also claims that they "got Mary to drink and drive," as if Mary wouldn't have done it without their intervention, which, unless they pulled on her what Martin Landau did to Cary Grant in North by Northwest, is a lie.
And now I'd like to officially state that there will be no more links to past episodes in this recap. Digging through all the 7th Heaven recaps to find links is extremely time-consuming, not to mention that reading through all those episodes of 7th Heaven, with all those terrible plotlines, all the awful guest stars, and all the preachy lessons they were trying to teach me, was just painful.
Lucy is represented by a stick figure on the phone. Wow, that sucks. Matt got his career, Mary got her basketball talent, and the best Simon could do with Lucy was that she talks a lot? ["That's really Lucy's fault, I'd say. As so many things are." -- Sars] Lucy has the "longest" list of friends, starting with "recluse" Richard Moll in a role I'd much rather see Marsha Warfield in. "Victim" Suzanne's dad wouldn't pay child support. "Victim" Shelby was embarrassed about the fairly decent Cape-style house she lived in. And "victim" number three was verbally abused by her mother.
Admissions Guy 1: How are any of these people even "victims"?
Admissions Guy 2: Maybe they drowned afterwards.
Admissions Guy 1: Drowned in self-pity, maybe.
Lucy helped "ex-boyfriend" Rod face his father after his mother died. "Cutter" Nicole is Chloe from Smallville, and she had a "self-abuse problem." "Victim" Ashley had a mom who was a friend instead of a mother.
