It's the next morning in the CamKitchen, and Matt tells his dad that he wants to talk to Simon when he gets home. RevCam says that he, too, wants to talk to Simon. Matt wants him first because RevCam and Annie obviously aren't getting anywhere. Matt tells his dad that maybe he should talk to Martin. And maybe Matt should talk to his wife about how their marriage is a complete sham. Simon enters the house, and Matt leaves, wishing RevCam "good luck." RevCam asks Simon if he can talk to him now. Simon says that they talked enough last night to last until he goes back to school. At this, RevCam pulls out the "how are you paying for school?" card, saying that if Simon can make his own decisions about sex, he can certainly pay for his own school. Does RevCam have amnesia? Are his clarified-butter-blocked arteries restricting the blood flow to his brain? Because if not, he should remember what happened the last time he didn't agree with one of his children's life choices and made her pay for everything herself. He shouldn't remember being a big part of her life since then, because he hasn't been. Because she hates him now. Simon says he'll find a way to get the money if that's what RevCam is threatening. RevCam wonders if Simon can get the money from Asslee's dad, and Simon says that he can, because his job and his relationship with Asslee are mutually exclusive. Of course, this prompts RevCam to ask about Asslee, to which Simon says she's not his girlfriend anymore, then takes off.
Matt and Ruthie are walking down the hall. Annie runs up and nags at Ruthie to apologize to Martin before he goes to school. Ruthie says he already left, but that maybe she can apologize to him after her detention. She leaves. Matt informs his mother that her children are growing up and she can't just tell them what to do anymore. Matt informs Annie that "kids today" are smarter than he was when he was growing up. Well, sure, but so are one-celled creatures today. Matt says that RevCam and Annie are going to have to get smarter as they get older to deal with all the new temptations kids today have. Like what, cell phones? If he's talking about sex and drugs...well, those were around when RevCam and Annie were in school. Not that RevCam indulged in either. Annie is another story, which I can't wait to recap. "You're starting to sound like a doctor," Annie says. If by that she means condescending and self-important, then she's absolutely right.
Annie enters the twins' room to take them to school. But they're not there. They probably left the house some time last night when everyone else was too busy not being able to mind their own business to take care of their actually dependant children. Annie opens the connecting door to look for them in Simon's room, but all she finds is Simon in mid-dress. He's kind of pissed at the unannounced intrusion, but Annie isn't sorry. Apparently, because this is "her house" (which it isn't, it's the church's), she can just walk on into people's rooms whenever she damn well pleases. Huh. Mrs. Poole used that logic once and Annie wasn't quite so supportive of it then. Annie takes a different, kinder tone, and asks her son what's wrong with him. He says nothing. She asks where the twins are. He doesn't know.
