Mary's sitting on the floor in her room, the way you do when you're telephoning someone you'd like to get it on with. "So what are you in for?" she's asking. "Yeah, I fell into a bad crowd, too. The girl's basketball team. [Snort.] No, I'm not kidding." See, you know she has a crush on this person because she's making that inane crush-talk. She hurries off the phone, telling the boy that she'll see him that afternoon. She grabs her stuff and opens the door to see her parents with the twins. They start telling her what they have to do and who's gonna drive who where, and then RevCam un-casually asks, "Important call?" Mary brilliantly replies, "What?" Then we get a shot of Annie's super-pissed-off face as she asks, "Who was on the phone?" Freaking chill out, Annie. We know you love your sons more than your daughters like any good doormat of a mother would, but try to play it down, can't you? Mary says it was just a friend, and RevCam reminds her that she's "on restriction" and she says she knows and that she "told him," and then she goes to haul the kids to school. Annie still looks overly angry and she asks Rev if he thinks Mary's telling the truth. "The whole truth, nothing but the truth? Nah," says he. Whatever. Like, what -- are they thinking Mary's secretly engaged to this dude? I feel bad for the Camdens that they have to make such big issues out of the tiniest things. Maybe if they took a swing-dancing class and had themselves sterilized, they could lighten up a little.
