Lucy and Kevin enter the kitchen, and the CamRents automatically (and understandably) assume they're there to steal some dinner. RevCam sounds annoyed that their theft of leftovers will leave him without a lunch tomorrow, and I applaud the sudden appearance of his backbone, however brief I'm sure it will be. It turns out they're not there for dinner at all; Lucy needs to tattle on Simon for asking Kevin for a five-hundred-dollar loan. To his credit, Kevin isn't very pleased that his wife is making him tell on his brother-in-law. Not to his credit, Kevin is also pissed that Lucy doesn't consider Simon to be his brother as well as hers. This might -- just might -- have something to do with the fact that Simon is Lucy's brother and not Kevin's, but that's just my wild speculation. Lucy responds that she doesn't appreciate the fact that Kevin thinks he can just loan their money out without her approval. She has a point, but then again, Kevin's the one who brings all the money into their marriage, and it's not like Lucy has contributed anything in kind. No, Lucy, whining does not count as a contribution.
For once, RevCam isn't interested in his daughter's marital problems; he just wants to know what Simon needs the loan for. Kevin says Simon didn't say, and RevCam says it's "unlike" Kevin to loan out so much money without knowing what it's for. Seriously. Kevin is so damn cheap he won't even buy his wife a computer for her schoolwork, and now he's just going to give Simon five hundred dollars for mysterious purposes? Kevin says he'll find out when he drives up to Simon's school to give him the money, and asks what's wrong with that. "So many things," Annie says, obviously referring to the high gas prices Kevin will have to pay to make the trip, since I don't see what else could be wrong. RevCam asks to go with him, even though he just said he had to work tomorrow and I thought Simon's college was an all-day trip. And how nice of Kevin to just drop everything to go up there and hand some money to Simon. You'd think Simon, the one who needs the money, would be the one making that effort, but apparently not. Or maybe Kevin just wants the chance to get away from his wife, who is currently talking about how much better her dad is at solving problems than him. Kevin says he just wants a chance to solve the family problems. Well, as long as there's a patriarchal figure doing the problem-solving, I don't see any reason to complain about which one it is. RevCam seems to agree with me, as he tells Kevin to go ahead. "What?!?" say Annie and Lucy in disbelief. RevCam reminds Kevin that this could be a "parental matter" that will be over Kevin's head, and asks him to call if he can't handle things. SherLucy Holmes calls this a trap. RevCam says it is. Kevin doesn't care. Really, he shouldn't care about any of this. In the Land of Normal, people are usually happy to stay well away from their in-laws' problems.
