Robbie is sitting in the darkened CamKitchen, talking to Cheryl on the phone. It would be funny, albeit gross, to think that they're having phone sex, but instead Robbie is just apologizing for laughing earlier when he found out she was going to college. Of course, she wouldn't even know that he'd laughed at her if he hadn't just told her. But this way Robbie can pretend he's all noble and shit, because he apologized. A sad-looking Dopey has been eavesdropping on the conversation from the stair landing. You know, I've become so desensitized to these oafish Camdens that I can't even be shocked by that anymore.
Upstairs, Lucy is lying in bed while Ruthie pesters her about Jeremy. Ruthie says, "Come on, tell Snookie your deep, dark secrets." I'm sure Lucy speaks for all of us when she says, "Quit calling yourself 'Snookie.' I hate that." With the shortsightedness of the very young and very annoying, Ruthie tries to convince herself that Lucy's just peeved because she doesn't have a nickname, so she calls her "Lady Liberty." I'm sure Lucy speaks for all of us again when she says, "Oh, shut up!" After Ruthie tries to justify her rudeness by invoking a Camden's sacred right to know what's happening in everyone else's lives, Lucy hisses, "The way you sneak around, I'm surprised you haven't been able to sneak the information, Sneaky!" Ruthie is shocked and outraged to hear herself described as sneaky. Lucy reiterates her point, adding, "I think Robbie was trying to tell you in a nice way…maybe he was trying to point something out to you. Good night, Sneaky." Lucy turns her back and the camera zooms in on Ruthie, who does her best to look devastated. Given how valid Lucy's criticisms are, I'm not sure why we're supposed to feel bad for Ruthie. Personally, I think Lucy's speech was way overdue, and for a brief, shining moment, I feel a trace of fondness for Lucy.
In the CamBoudoir, Annie is lying on her side while RevCam stares creepily at her. Aw, man -- doesn't he ever give the stalking a rest? Annie senses his eerie gaze upon her, so she asks why he's staring. He tells Annie his feelings were hurt when she said he had a weak heart earlier. Why, oh, why can't these people get lives? Eric does have a weak heart. He had a heart attack two years ago, remember? And while I'm sure he can still lead a long and active life, I can't imagine his heart is that of a healthy twenty-year-old. Especially when he's constantly faced with the stress of having to turn every innocuous comment into an insult, just so it fits in to tonight's theme of "teasing." And now he's faced with a flood of tears from SuperMom, who's crying because she upset RevCam and because…oh, does anyone really care? I'm sure she'll go back to kvetching in a moment or two, anyway. RevCam wonders aloud about what Chandler's Mom wants to discuss with him. Thanks for cranking up the crappy fake suspense, writers. RevCam lets his fingers do some walking up Annie's arm. It takes her a moment to realize that this is his primitive way of getting romantic, but when she clues in, she turns her back to RevCam and rolls her eyes ostentatiously. I can't say I'd react any differently if my husband tried out such a cheesy move on me.
