Eric is in his back yard, conversing with The Amazing Robbie. Vomity Robbie is a trifle upset with Cheryl, but not so much because she tried to trick him into marriage -- no, he's upset because she tricked him into sex. He claims she fed him some line about needing to have sex to clear up "some kind of female problem." I know y'all probably are tired of me saying stuff like this, but really, how stupid would Robbie have to be to believe a line like that? Or alternatively, how stupid would he have to be to think RevCam would buy this as a valid excuse from him? Come on, just how stupid is Robbie anyway? Well, plenty! When RevCam asks him to absorb some of the lessons he's learned today, Robbie affects an even blanker than usual look and asks, "Like?" Hee! If more comedy like this is in store, then bring on the Robbie. I think I can handle it. Actually, RevCam and Robbie have way more chemistry than Robbie and Mary ever did. They're a regular Laurel and Hardy, as Eric tries to explain to Robbie what respect for women is all about. RevCam suggests that Robbie take notes. I guess the show budget doesn't allow for a trip to Business Depot for a pad of paper and pencil, though, because I don't see any note-taking happening.
Lucy and Ruthie arrive. Robbie, a.k.a. Mr. Charming, suavely says, "Good evening, ladies," and then looks over at Eric, as if to say, "Look! Pretty damn respectful, huh?" Ruthie elected to skip the concert so that she could spend the evening talking to Lucy at a hamburger joint. Yeah, that might happen. Lucy and Ruthie depart. RevCam asks Robbie if he will be speaking to Mary again. Robbie thinks he should just let Mary think he got married so that she can find a new boyfriend in Buffalo. Right, because a woman is nothing without a boyfriend, of course. RevCam says, "If I'm to be respectful of my daughter, I have to tell her the truth." Eric, you know, it's way too late to be respectful of your daughter. You breached her confidentiality all over town and illegally took possession of her car. Just because the Glenoak busybodies helped you out with all that still doesn't make it right. Robbie leaves, but not before thanking Eric for "saving" his "life." The sad music plays while Stephen Collins tries not to laugh at the stupidity of this episode. Fortunately, I don't have to be as polite.
