Now let's join Annie in A Mother's "Love": The Search for Her Missing Children, already in progress. This probably happens about every third day, when Annie realizes that she hasn't seen her kids since the last time she found them. Annie notices an open closet and finds her boys inside, hiding under blankets. Except that they're using the Scooby-Doo hiding technique, which is to just throw something over yourself and hope no one finds it suspicious that there's a sheet standing of its own accord shaped like a man holding a big dog. Although in this case, it's two little boys. And Annie is at least marginally smarter than Mr. Henderson, the cranky old caretaker, and figures out where her sons are. She tells them that school will get better. "We make mistakes all the time," Vid says, desperately trying to make his mother to see that they have some severe learning disabilities. Annie says that people make mistakes, and then they learn from them. Sure, if they're capable of learning, which SamVid isn't. For example: "Please, no more learning," Sam begs. "Please, my head hurts," says Vid. Please, get them into a special education program. As Simon walks up behind her, Annie says that every day is a chance to learn and do better.
"Does that include you?" Simon asks Annie. Happy to have a distraction from the children who actually need her, Annie stands up and says it includes everyone, and that they can put the summer and last night and this morning behind them and talk about it. Hey Mommy Dumb-ass, maybe your whole "let's put this behind us" plan isn't so effective when your son dealing with the fact that HE RAN OVER AND KILLED A KID. Maybe instead of forgetting about that and running away from home, he should, like, oh, I don't know, deal with it? Annie preaches about the importance of respect, although respect certainly wasn't important when RevCam scoffed at Simon being considered a "sir" last night, was it?
