We open to people riding bikes. From the camera angle, it looks like they almost got hit by a passing car. It would have been cool if they had. They're wearing helmets, too, because Helmets Are Safe. Here's a postman walking to his mailtruck. He's wearing a safari hat. And now we're in the CamPound, where Lucy is putting all her school stuff down. We hear Annie's voice saying something about being caught by surprise.
Lucy walks into the kitchen where Annie is on the phone. She gesticulates wildly to her mother. I think she's trying to tell her to get off the phone, but I don't read Lucy Sign Language, so I can't be sure. Annie ignores her and continues her phone conversation. She's talking to her father. The surprise is that he's coming to visit. Annie asks if her dad's girlfriend Ginger is coming too, but Anniedad explains that they've broken up. Annie pretends that she's sorry to hear that and asks why. Anniedad says that he made some changes and Ginger wasn't comfortable with them. Changes, eh? I hope they're part of some humorous subplot! No, I don't. Annie says she has to go to the church and help RevCam with a couples counseling session. Stupid Ruthie walks in with a stupid box in her stupid hands. Lucy tells her that she will have to wait in line for Mother, and that line begins after Lucy. Ruthie rudely replies, "So?" Ruthie, I hate you. A lot. Ruthie tells Annie, who is still on the phone, that her friend Ricky had some lizards he had to give away, so she took them. Annie opens the box. Yes, there are lizards in there. Lizards, and some tickertape. The lizards look at the tickertape, then take the phone away from Annie to call their brokers and demand that they sell their tech stocks immediately. Okay, no, they don't. What actually happens is that Annie tells Ruthie that she can't have lizards. Ruthie walks away, no doubt to return the forbidden reptiles to Ricky. Oh wait, I forgot that Ruthie is a disobedient troll. Annie hangs up on her dad, but not before he says that he has a surprise for her. Do you think that it will be hilarious? No, I don't either. Annie is running out the door while Lucy tells her that Jimmy Moon and Ashley broke up and this is her big chance to be with him again. But Rod also wants her. Lucy says that this is "exciting." Annie says something that doesn't look funny written down, and maybe wasn't supposed to be funny, but was: "Rod and Jimmy? Yes, that's very exciting! Two very exciting choices!" Then she gives Lucy all these orders and literally runs out the door. Lucy looks angry that she doesn't get no respect.
