Mary asks the 'rents if she can grab a bite to eat with her friends. They let her go. SuperMom asks RevCam if they did the right thing, and he reassures her in a very manly fashion.
Down at Eddie's Pool Hall, members of the girls' basketball team are bitching about Coach Cleary again. One girl declares, "This whole thing makes me nuts. I just want to go over to the gym and . . ." Aw, man, just go and do "the unthinkable" already! The fake suspense is really working my nerves.
RevCam and SuperMom are hinting to each other that they don't want Matt to move back home. Speak of the, er, devil, here comes Dopey, with Simon and Ruthie in tow. Dopey's friends kicked them out because they couldn't take Ruthie's incessant "honking." SuperMom gives a very odd little speech, which I will reproduce in its entirety for your entertainment: "You know how we feel about burping, sneezing on each other or each other's food, spitting, or anything to do with your or anybody else's nose, or pretty much anything that comes out of your head, and yes, honking." The fact that Ruthie starts talking about apologizing for "accidents" leads me to believe that perhaps her "honking" was not facilitated by her armpit. In any case, I'm happy to see her leave.
Mary and her teammates pile out of a car and run up some stairs to the high school gym. As to why the door to the gym is unlocked, your guess is as good as mine.
RevCam and SuperMom talk about their kids some more, and Annie says, "There comes a point in life where you have to throw them out into the world and pray." She suggests that they may have thrown Mary too far.
What good is foreshadowing if it comes immediately before the event it foreshadows? We cut to the high school, where Mary and the gals are vandalizing the gym. The spray-painting is kind of severe, but the rest of the vandalism seems to consist of emptying some trash cans and festooning the place with toilet paper. Ooh, what a bunch of hell-raisers! For a star basketball player, Mary is a pretty lousy shot, as she throws some TP at the basket and misses it entirely. I am grateful when this scene is cut short by a disembodied voice announcing that the girls are under arrest.
I regret to inform you, however, that there is a Part Two to this Very Special Episode.
