(Um . . . did you get my three latest emails, Eric? I'm just wondering since I didn't see anything from you the last twelve times I checked. Just wondering. No biggie.)
My hamsters are fighting. They always fight when 7th Heaven is on. I think they need exorcisms.
Sheila sits in the Camden living room and gives the CamRents Bobby's medical history. RevCam shows off the research he's done on Tourette's since meeting Bobby. Sheila says that once, at a party, she overheard some acquaintances speculating that she must have done drugs while pregnant with Bobby. Man. Way harsh. She said her parents are only worried about laying the genetic blame on the in-laws. All Bill does is swim in denial. Annie wants to know how the SuperCams can help. Sheila's made an appointment with a pediatric neurologist for Bobby the next day. She wants Bill to show up, but she needs RevCam to convince him to do so. I actually feel for this woman, even though it's pathetic that she'd need her virtual-stranger-of-a-minister to boss her husband around. Lady, you need to learn to do that for yourself!
Shana's leaving a message on Matt's phone again. Matt walks in and picks it up. I'm not going to get all into it, because just looking at these two and their greasy hair makes my head itch. Matt tells Shana they need a break from each other.
Ruthie's in the nursery bothering the twins. She's promising them that she'll never spill their beans the way Lucy did hers. Annie stands at the door and eavesdrops for a sec before bluntly asking if Ruthie's done her homework. "What's the use? Haven't you heard? I'm stupid," says Bratty. Annie is wearing a gacky pink/lavender ombre plaid flannel shirt. She has Ruthie sit on her lap. She gives a corny speech about Ms. Riddle making Ruthie hate school and school being enjoyable and safe and blah blah. Ruthie is glad Annie yelled at her teacher. Annie thinks Ruthie should make up with Lucy. Ruthie says something about the other kids' moms getting involved. Apparently, Ruthie's not the only one the teacher calls stupid.
Mary runs down into the living room and asks Lucy if she knows Denise, the girl who wears all the flannel. Lucy doesn't, really. Simon walks in and asks Mary to tell him what he did to piss her off. She runs away. Simon turns to Lucy, but she won't squeal. She gives him a hint, telling him it was something he said during the basketball game. Simon still can't remember and offers to pay for the information. I'm so sure. Who would do such a thing, especially where a sibling's concerned? Lucy runs upstairs.
