Martin enters the office of the counselor from the last episode (again, I'm still guessing it's the counselor, since her official title hasn't been made clear. Although I do like the implication that she's a new principal, and that Mizzz Jones got the hell away from Glenoak after her encounter with RevCam). Martin says that his reaction to getting pantsed was too strong, and that he doesn't think Ruthie should have detention. Don't back down, Martin! Stay strong! You were actually cool for fifteen minutes! Martin says he wants to work things out with Ruthie himself, and that he isn't used to being in a big family, and that having a little sister like Ruthie is "a challenge." Counselor sympathizes, adding that the Camdens have always been "a challenge." I guess she's heard this from somewhere since she certainly wasn't around for any of the other Camdens. Counselor says that if Ruthie can change her attitude, Counselor can "back off" the detention.
Martin finds Ruthie in the hall and apologizes to her, both for not having a sense of humor about her pantsing him and for not giving her a ride to school. Ruthie asks him if he talked to Matt, and Martin says he did. Ruthie says that Matt thinks he's wise now that he's a Fake Doctor, but that she just sees him as being sweet and goofy. Martin says he sees Matt as an almost-doctor with almost-good advice. Ruthie adds that Matt is also someone who's afraid that Martin would tell on Asslee about Simon. "Overhearing is my purpose in life," says Ruthie, neglecting to mention that it's actually second to taking over the world. Martin suggests that Ruthie put her listening skills to use and become a shrink. This excites the child, and then she apologizes for the pantsing. She says she feels stupid about what she did and has no excuse for it. Martin tells Ruthie that if she says that to the counselor (so she is a counselor and not the principal), she'll get out of detention. In my high school, the guidance counselors didn't really have the power to give or take away detentions. Mine always had to send me to the vice-principal to give me them. Ruthie says she'll serve her sentence. Detention is full of cute guys. What a punishment.
The twins come home only to hear, but not see, their mother, who calls down that she'll be right there. The twins snatch some freshly-baked cookies from a plate and try to figure out what they're going to tell their mother. Apparently, SamVid was involved in something involving a mouse and scaring that poor girl they bothered last episode and then the mouse running away, and then them running after it and getting lost. Then their teacher found them. "The end," they say in unison. I hope this isn't a recurring theme.
