Back at the CamPound, Ruthie explains to the twins, "Now, you both understand that trying to put your brother in the dryer is bad -- very, very bad." Taller Twin asks, "What about the closet?" Ruthie answers, "That's bad too." Hey, is that supposed to be a subtle putdown of Simon? Because that's not very nice. Shorter Twin asks why Ruthie is mad at RevCam. She doesn't want to talk about it. That's just dandy with me.
The next unwelcome comeback is from Sarah "Plot Contrivance" Camden, except she's not anywhere near as unwelcome as Ben, and at least she's family.
Kevin rushes up to Robbie, saying that he "got [his] message." He delivers a bunch of really stupid related lines with all the emotion of a -- well, a cyborg. Then he asks why Robbie is smiling. Robbie wants him to "guess." T-1000 doesn't want to guess. In fact, he's so irked by the very idea of guessing that he says, "I have a gun, and I'm not afraid to use it." I really need to rent T2 again, because it's been a while, but can't Kevin just kill Robbie by clocking him in the head with one of his beefy cyborg hands? Robbie continues to spill Lucy's entire secret, telling T-1000 about her soul-searching -- or what passes for soul-searching in one as shallow as Lucy -- and even lets him know that Lucy now considers herself ready for marriage. At that revelation, Kevin looks as blank as ever. Robbie punches him on the shoulder nervously, but not hard enough for us to see any of that liquid metal stuff come out of him. Kevin rakes Robbie over the coals for calling him away from work and then tells him he's not going to ask Lucy to marry him. He leaves to check on Annie. Robbie stands there looking as blank as -- well, a cyborg, although I'm pretty sure he isn't one.
RevCam's still singing "Don't Be Cruel" in his creepy mind-world. It's better than watching any of the other subplots, though.
Egads -- during the commercial break, Eric has morphed into Gross Elvis, complete with gaudy white jumpsuit, vile 'burns, and big gold medallions in his ample chest hair. In fact, one of them looks like something Dopey used to wear. RevElvis is singing "(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear," even though Elvis put that song out much earlier than his Gross era.
Lucy chooses the occasion of her father's heart surgery to play a game of "Twenty Stupid Questions" with Annie. Maybe I should give the girl more credit, though. Perhaps she's just trying to distract her mother from worrying about Eric by making her worry about how dumb her daughter is instead. Lucy's first question: "Mom, how did you know Dad was the man you were supposed to marry?" Has Lucy been reading romance novels again, with the whole "one true love" message they're so fond of putting out? Maybe Annie's been lending them to her, since she replies, "When it's the right person, you just take one look and know that he's the person you want to spend the rest of your life with." Oh, you mean that "love at first sight" shit, right? What can you really tell about someone at first sight? Well, you can probably tell whether he or she looks good in spandex, and you might be able to tell if someone would be good in the sack (though that one's iffy). You might even be able to tell if they're kindhearted or nasty. But knowing whether you'll spend the rest of your life with that person? Isn't it kind of just dumb luck when that actually happens? Well, except for Dopey and Plot Contrivance and their fake engagement and stupid wedding. I'm sure they were totally meant to be together, like, forever. Lucy tells her mom that she wants to marry Kevin. But maybe -- just maybe -- there's a shred of sense left in her, because she's shaking her head as she says it.
