Lucy comes in and nags her dad that he should be getting ready for church. Eric says he will, as soon as Annie gets out of the shower. Oh, so I guess they really were fighting about shower time after all. Silly me, I just assumed that they were lying to their children again! Lucy urges RevCam to tell Simon about the graffiti before "someone else does." Yeah, like that loudmouth Mrs. Bink. RevCam says he'll tell Simon after church, and there's no need to worry about someone telling Simon at church because he isn't going. Lucy looks shocked, then says that she isn't going to church either because she wants to "be there" for Kevin when he gets back from the station. RevCam suspects that his daughter really just wants to get it on with her husband instead of going to church. Sacrilege! Lucy coyly says that she and Kevin need some time together to "do something life-affirming." RevCam wants to know what she has in mind, because asking a question like that is one of the few ways this scene could get any more squicky. Lucy doesn't answer. RevCam reminds her that having a baby while she's still in school is not a good idea, and she should just leave it up to God to provide her with something "life-affirming." Shut up, RevCam. There are so many things wrong with guilting your adult daughter into not having sex with her husband. Lucy agrees to go to the church service, and leaves. RevCam asks God for some "uplifting distraction -- dealer's choice!" God gets his own uplifting distraction when he discovers that there's still a little bit of Herbal Essences left in the bottle he thought was empty.
Peter comes downstairs, announces his departure because he's that important, and tells RevCam he'll see him at church. This snaps RevCam out of his God-induced reverie long enough to make a snotty comment to himself about how Peter should just leave a change of clothes at the CamPound since he's around so much. Then he yells to Peter that he can call if he wants a ride. Well, do you want him around or not, Eric? RevCam asks God for a better distraction than "teen love." Wow, it's pretty ballsy of a minister to ask God for something, then turn around and say that what God gave him wasn't good enough and he'd like something better. I wouldn't even have pulled that with Santa. Ruthie runs downstairs, yelling to Peter that he forgot his bag. She runs out the front door and into some creepy guy who's picking his nose. He looks like George Clooney and Kiefer Sutherland's love child, who got hit with the ugly stick about a thousand times. Ruthie asks if she knows him from somewhere. Attention, all tween girls: what Ruthie is doing right now is very stupid. If you happen upon a weird-looking stranger standing around your house, you should not attempt to engage in conversation with him. Please run inside the house and find an adult. This has been a Public Service Announcement brought to you by the Citizens Against Brenda Hampton's "Good" Ideas. We're a very busy group. Kieforge asks if Ruthie remembers him from the one and only Christmas episode like five years ago where Mary was forced to volunteer at a soup kitchen, where she met him, brought him back to the CamPound, and helped him get back to his family in New York. "And you're just here to thank us?" Ruthie asks. "Not exactly," says Keiforge, which makes me giggle. Ruthie ascertains that Kieforge's name is "Carlos," and Carlos remembers that her name is Ruthie, "only, when I knew you then you were just a little girl. And now, you're a young woman." Ruthie, this would be a good time to run away as fast as your ugly bright red platform shoes can take you. Instead, she asks Carlos to sit down for a chat.
