Simon leaves and Lucy comes in. She wants to know what RevCam's doing. Now, that's more like it! Ruthie laments that she has no friends. Lucy asks about tertiary characters who briefly played friends of Ruthie's earlier in the season, but I guess those actors have moved on to other projects by now. Ruthie claims that part of the problem is that the Camdens are poor, and she says she doesn't want to be friends with snobs. It's a sad day when Ruthie is one of the most intelligent voices on the show, but it's been happening more and more lately. Lucy points out that a third of the students are on scholarship, just like Ruthie, but Ruthie says there's no way of finding out which girls are poor. That sounds unlikely to me, but whatever. Ruthie resolves to become friends with the girl to whom she was giving her lunches a few episodes back. She leaves.
Robbie comes in and asks Lucy why Matt is being so nice to him. Lucy dorkily suggests that Dopey is getting to know and like Robbie and, consequently, is treating him "like he would treat anyone else." Robbie, unlike the biological Camdens, was born with at least a partial understanding of the rudiments of human behaviour, leading him to doubt Lucy's pathetic assessment of Dopey and his motives. Robbie asks Lucy out for a game of pool, but she refuses, citing homework. She makes a face as she says it, but we all know that secretly she's really excited to be the only high-school senior in North America who still agonizes over her homework six weeks before graduation.
