The realtor's not even off the yard before Henry is complaining about having to share a room with Tommy, a.k.a. Mikey. Tommy in turn complains that Henry "farts on [him]." Henry refuses to share with an eight-year-old. "Why, 'cause then you won't be able to play with yourself?" the daughter snarks. Henry throws it right back at her: "Like you don't?" "Do we all have to listen to this?" Mom asks. "No," say the several million lead-in 7th Heaven viewers who represent this show's entire audience, as they all change the channel at once. Good run, you guys. Thanks for everything.
As the family unpacks, the daughter digs out a framed photo of the family. Except they all look different, so it's clearly from before they went on the lam. Tommy has brown hair, Paul has graying hair and wire-rimmed glasses, Mom's hair is shoulder-length instead of shorter than mine (like Leslie Hope's has been for at least the past five years), Henry is all preppied out, and the daughter also has glasses and a serious split-ends problem. Good to see that three weeks on the road can actually improve someone's appearance. Speaking of which (except the opposite), Paul comes in, finds her looking at it, and remarks, "Seems like a long time ago." She apologizes and hands it over without being asked.
In the kitchen, Paul reports to his wife that there's a leak in the roof. "That's what 'has potential' means," she answers. He asks if she used that phrase on her parents after their first date, and they share a little smile. Then he shows her the picture. "Hannah brought it," he says. Thank you for finally using the daughter's actual name. Mom loses her smile and goes to mope out the window. He digs it out of the trash can where she tossed it, and feeds it down the garbage disposal. Which works, so the place must not be as bad as we thought. Seeing that she's unhappy, Paul comes up behind her to put a comforting hand on her shoulder. "Lily," he says. "Brenda," she corrects flatly. Isn't moving day exciting?
The screen goes black, and the word "RUNAWAY" in white stencil font appears. Shortest title sequence ever.
