Service apparently over, the CamFam returns home and all walk, single file, upstairs. Peter's there too, of course. RevCam sees him and clears his throat. When Peter turns around, RevCam shrugs and mouths words. Peter compliments RevCam's sermon. RevCam continues to wave his hands around and not say anything. Maybe he asked God for some life-affirming telepathy, and he's trying to see if it's working yet. Peter says he just wanted to check on Ruthie, because she seemed quiet at church. RevCam says churches are supposed to be quiet. "There's a lot of talk going 'round, just the same," answers Peter, who apparently thinks he's starring in a 1950s Western. Eric asks for clarification, so Peter tells him that he heard people talking about the graffiti, and Ruthie did too. RevCam asks what else Peter heard. Peter says people feel badly for the dead kid's family, but also for the Camdens. Also, Chandler should either marry Roxanne or "break up with that hussy." Old women use words like "hussy," Peter says. Yeah, while today's youth prefers "harlot." RevCam asks for more gossip, and Peter says that everyone's been talking about Mary, but that's nothing new, as she's always the most popular topic in the church gossip scene. People want to know why Mary hasn't been home at all this summer. Some believe it's because she's a spy. For France. RevCam asks how Peter can hear all this stuff and he can't. Maybe it's because Peter listens to people instead of asking God for stuff. And I'd just like to take this time to thank Brenda Hampton for choosing to not to show us the church service filled with awesome gossipy church ladies and people shooting critical glances at the Camdens and Roxanne. It was much better television to have Peter relay all that to me instead of being able to see it for myself. And I'll bet it was cheaper, too.
Upstairs, Lucy and Ruthie are talking about Carlos. Lucy thinks that Ruthie knows something about Carlos and Mary that she doesn't, and she wants to know what it is, because her own life is so unfulfilling that she must concern herself with other people's business. Ruthie says that Carlos is ready to tell everyone about the marriage. Lucy says that Mary doesn't want people to know she's married, and she wants an annulment. At this point, Peter walks in, shakes his head, then walks right back out again. Okay. Ruthie thinks that Mary might have changed her mind. Why would she do that? Lucy asks. "Isn't it obvious?" Ruthie says. Actually, it's not. Please tell me -- oh. The scene ended.
