What's a girl to do when she the episode doesn't revolve entirely around her alone? She plays a little Sonic the Hedgehog, of course. Cam gives her tips about what's coming up on Sonic's adventure and sits down on the coffee table in front of her. Cam tries to bring up the subject of Slutgirl, but Meghan really prefers to talk about herself more than anybody else, so she gets pissed. (And if you're gonna be pissy, use the gaming system all the cool kids use. Sega Dreamcast. For when you know your show is almost cancelled and they still haven't let you tell everyone that you're pregnant.) They snap at each other for a bit until Cam says that he thinks about Slutgirl "day and night" and wants to know if it's the same for her. "So, you really care about her?" Meghan asks. Cam says he wouldn't come crawling to her if he weren't desperate. There is an extreme close-up on Meghan as she says, "I, I really wish I knew what to say, Cam, but I think you better just...talk to Jodie." He says it isn't that easy. Meghan says that Slutgirl is a "force of nature. Unpredictable." And, "I love the girl, but I would hate to be the guy dating her." Somewhere Slutgirl is all, "Vice versa, right back atcha, girlie." Meghan continues: "Without going into too many gory details, her relationship with her dad is...pretty ugly. She's got some serious trust issues with guys, you know like, um...do it to them first? That's why I was so...freaked out by you and her as a couple [sic]. I was afraid that you would get tired of her and really hurt her bad [sic]. I never in a million years would have thought that --" "I would fall for her," Cam finishes. The background music is trying to butt in. It's so loud that I cover my ears. "Basically." Cam looks down and takes a good swallow before he says, "Maybe I'm unpredictable, too." Hey, that word has five syllables! Rock on, Cam.
