Ruthie comes downstairs, also holding an empty dinner plate. Apparently, Annie made dinner for everyone except RevCam (because she's mad at him) and Martin (because she knew she wouldn't have been able to ask him if he wanted a ham or a turkey sandwich without him lecturing her on the importance of democracy and freedom in America). Ruthie tells RevCam about how Martin accused her of being ignorant, and asks him to give Martin a "long and serious sermon." Shut up, tattletale.
Kevin comes in the house, refusing RevCam's offer of a sandwich because he's not hungry because he's just had a fight with Lucy and it's their first fight since she got pregnant. RevCam says that when Annie was pregnant, they fought all the time because women are insane and the blah blah blahs come back. And I know a lot of people said that the blah blah blah device got real old, real fast, but I still find it hilarious, as well as a real recapping time-saver. I wish they had done it more. Like every time Lucy spoke.
Speaking of the pumpkin-faced devil, Lucy and Annie are enjoying the very best cuisine that the Promenade has to offer. I think it's chicken fingers served with a variety of exciting dipping sauces. Lucy talks about her fight with Kevin, saying that she was ashamed of not having registered to vote and took it out on Kevin. And then she was "too upset" after her fight with Kevin to register, so she still hasn't registered. Is it really so difficult to register that one must be in a happy frame of mind to do so? When I registered, the process was so quick and painless that I don't even remember doing it. Although this is Lucy, the girl who could barely handle jury duty, that we're talking about. Because Annie has absolutely no control over what comes out of her mouth, she slips up, and Lucy realizes that Annie knew that Kevin hadn't registered, and now Lucy's mad that no one told her. Then she figures out that Annie told RevCam that Lucy wasn't registered either, which makes her even angrier. "Politics makes people say stupid things to each other," says Annie, as if this were an excuse for breaking her daughter's trust, even if it was a stupid secret to begin with. Lucy agrees that Annie said some stupid things, which Annie takes offense at, and then they're both sulking.
RevCam is still talking to Kevin, this time about Annie being pregnant with Matt when Reagan was running against Carter. And that's all we hear before the blah blah blahs set in. RevCam realizes that Kevin isn't paying attention to him and scolds him for it, and Kevin asks if RevCam mentioned to anyone that he wasn't registered to vote. Why does that even matter now that he's told Lucy about it? RevCam admits that it slipped out, and that politics make people say stupid things. As do bad writers, BRENDA. "Yeah, stupid thanks for the sandwich," Kevin says, and takes off without even volunteering to clean his dish. That's pretty fucking rude, to enter someone's house without knocking, get some free food from him, very obviously not listen to what he's saying, and then leave without even cleaning up after yourself, but RevCam pretty much deserves it.
