The twins put their clean clothes away by tossing the entire pile into one single drawer and then wondering why it won't close. They accuse each other of being stupid. That's like the mouse accusing the rat of being a rodent, isn't it?
Ruthie sulks up to Annie, who tells her that her laundry is done and ready to be put away. Ruthie says she'll do it later, which earns her a lecture from Annie about how Ruthie has responsibilities in their house, which apparently don't include doing her own laundry. As she's speaking, she goes into blah blah blah mode again, then asks Ruthie what's wrong. Ruthie says she was humiliated at school today because her interest in boys has "overshadowed [her] interest in just about everything else in this world." I don't know if Annie's the right person to be talking to about this, since her interest in making cookies has overshadowed her interest in everything else in this world. Plus, isn't it a good thing in CamLand to be an ignorant woman who leaves the important decisions to the nearest wise patriarch? Annie tells Ruthie that she's still young enough to learn things and form her own opinions and whatever. Ruthie replies that maybe in the "olden days" people could spend their childhood and teenage years being ignorant about politics, but today's fast-moving youth need to keep informed about current events so that they don't get yelled at by Martin. Annie says that Martin has been getting closer to "exploding" as the election draws near. And, you know, after writing off other characters by having them go on an endless summer vacation, move to a duplex, leave town after running over a child, and just plain disappear, having Martin's ouster explained by him exploding would almost make sense. And I hope it happens soon. Ruthie declares that she is "giving up on boys and getting on the internet." If that isn't the start of a career in online lesbian porn, then I don't know what is. Ruthie laments that they still don't have the internet in the CamPound, which isn't true, since I had to recap the episode where RevCam and Annie used their home's internet connection to engage in some G-rated cybersex and it will forever be burned into my mind. Annie suggests that Ruthie listen to NPR. Ruthie leaves.
And because one character has left the room, a vacuum of space has been created that must immediately be filled by another character, according to the 7th Heaven Laws of Physics. So RevCam enters and asks Annie what's wrong with Ruthie. He's pleased to hear that Ruthie has decided to give up boys. She can still date Peter and Harry, though, right? Annie starts to talk about Martin, but they're interrupted by the twins, who are calling each other stupid. RevCam leaves to take care of that.
