Back in the hallway, RevCam overhears Simon saying, "May I take your order, please?" He walks into Simon's room to pry into his business. I'd be more inclined to feel bad for Simon that RevCam just walked into his room without knocking, but since Simon's so damn rude to everyone these days, I can't be bothered. I howl with delight when Simon says, "Not that it's any of your business, but I'm practicing my people skills for work." Why, what could possibly make Simon think his people skills are not up to par? Of course, standing in front of a mirror while saying things like, "May I take your order, please?" is probably not going to help any, but if it amuses the viewers, some good comes out of it. RevCam goes off on a boring little speech about how his summer job as a camp counselor showed him how good he was at helping people, and how that eventually led him to the church. Simon just shrugs at Eric, his facial expression clearly saying, "Why the hell are you telling me this?" What is RevCam's point, anyway? Just this: "If the job isn't the right fit for you, maybe you need to find another job." Um, thanks, I think. Simon complains that his parents don't pay for enough stuff for him -- like, you know, the car that his fifteen-year-old ass so richly deserves. Right, my heart sure bleeds for you, Simon. After bitching about having to pay for things like bus fare, Simon stalks off. Eric just rolls his eyes and leaves to find someone else to beleaguer.
Lucy and Robbie suit his purpose nicely. They're laughing chummily, and getting ready to meet some of Robbie's friends at the movies. RevCam tries to lecture them on spending too much time together, but no one's taking his advice very seriously. I'm sure this is all leading up to a future story arc where Lucy and Robbie get it on (well, as much as anyone actually "gets it on" in Glenoak) and Mary freaks out over it. Yawn. You know, it's not too late to back out of that one, writers. I really think you should reconsider it. Maybe you could do more stories about Happy instead, or write an episode revolving around the backyard bird feeder. You could show each of the Camdens adding more birdseed to the feeder, but then just show the birds eating for the rest of the hour. And then all the birds could attack Uncle Hank at the end of the show, while a giant owl swoops down and carries off the neighbour's poodle. My husband's co-worker swears this happened to her neighbour's poodle, and really, it's no less believable than a man's co-workers stealing his prosthetic arm as a joke. Better yet, if it's a sweeps period, the owl could carry off Ruthie. Oh, but where was I? Lucy and Robbie leaving on their date. Right.
