Ruthie reaches into a cabinet and grabs a bowl. Then she "drops" it on a nearby cookie jar, which we get to see explode upon impact in slow-motion, which was pretty cool. Ruthie grabs a paper bag and shovels the cookie jar pieces into it, just as SamVid come back downstairs to report that Matt is not in his room. Ruthie suggests looking for him in the bathroom. They do, passing by Annie, who's on her way down. Oh my god, is Annie wearing a housecoat? I thought they stopped making those twenty years ago! Seriously, though, Catherine Hicks better start dieting before even worse wardrobe catastrophes are wreaked upon her. A housecoat is just one small step away from a muumuu, you know. Ruthie shoves the paper bag full o' cookie jar into SamVid's food storage facility. Annie and Ruthie exchange some awkward conversation, then Ruthie leaves for school, saying she has to go in early to spend some time in the library. What a loser! SamVid come back down and report that Matt is nowhere to be found. Annie makes a face.
Lucy runs around The Treehouse of Lurv, wearing a little sweater with a long shirt under it. It's not a bad fashion choice per se, but on Lucy it looks terrible. Maybe it's because the sleeves extend well past her fingers and down to her knees. Damn, Lucy -- I know how difficult it can be for the shorter-statured yet larger-breasted woman to find a shirt that fits her chest but isn't monstrously large on the rest of her, but I think you can do a little better. Kevin offers to do a bunch of chores for Lucy, saying that he'd "do anything" for her. "That's so sweet," Lucy says condescendingly. She tells Kevin that he is a great husband and she loves being married to him. We also see that she has a hole in her sweater. Way to go, wardrobe department! Just another jewel in your crown of fashion accidents. Kevin smirks. Lucy leaves, and Kevin's smirk turns upside down into a wince as The Soprano Saxophone of Upcoming Bad Conversations plays.
