Simon and his little friend Nigel ["Whats with the Britcom names?" -- Sars] are walking along the sidewalk, discussing Simon's revolting peach fuzz "mustache." At first I'd thought it was some really bad lighting or a patch of dirt on his face, but upon closer inspection, it is indeed facial hair. I vow to stay at least ten feet away from my TV at all times while Simon is onscreen. Simon wonders if anyone will sell them more cigarettes, and says, "I can't believe we're doing this." Nigel claims, "We have to." Ooh, the suspense! Whatever can they mean? Whatever can they mean?
The Amazing Robbie is hassling Mary about getting her parents to let them go on a real date. And is he ever pressuring her! She says, "Look, I am doing everything possible to appear to be the most responsible teenager in the world." Yuck. I can't remember ever referring to myself as a "teenager" when I was actually in my teens. Robbie looks bored as Mary tries to convince him that the CamRents like him. In walks his brother. Omigawd, it's him! It's really him! Laaaaaance! Robbie gets the fantastic idea to force his brother "Rick" to take Lucy out. That way, the CamRents will have to let them all go out on a double date. Rick and Lucy are in the same room with their respective siblings. Rick keeps telling Robbie that he can't go out with Lucy, while Lucy just has no idea what's going on. After deciding that they will proceed with their plan, Robbie and Mary hang up. When Lucy asks what's going on, Mary just says, "Never mind," and leaves. Are you thinking this is wacky and humorous? 'Cause I sure am!
RevCam is watching cartoons with Ruthie. SuperMom comes into the living room and asks if Simon and Nigel have returned from their bike ride yet. I guess the writers couldn't be bothered to pay attention to the fact that Simon and Nigel have been nowhere near a bike so far in this episode. RevCam stares pensively into space for a while before asking, "Am I a good listener?" This also has nothing to do with anything that's happened, or will happen, in this episode. I'm starting to suspect that a lazy tape editor has added a scene from an entirely different episode in order to fill space. SuperMom says, "Did you hear what I just asked you? Did you hear me when I asked you to run downstairs and get me a couple of diapers?" RevCam's secret RevCaptions tell me he's calling Annie a "bitch" right now, but he doesn't say anything out loud, just gets up to retrieve some diapers. Ruthie says she will get them instead, since she can't watch TV with all the "yakking" going on. Did I miss something? Was there a point to this scene?
