7th Heaven (1996–2007): Season 10, Episode 5 - The Rat's Out of the Bag - full transcript

Kevin was happy to perform at a kids party in a Riverton rat costume, but when Mat hears Lucy is visiting Simon, prods him along to spy and soon finds Eric is doing the same, alas equally clumsily. Rosie knew Lucy came for Sandy, so Tyler's secret gets spread. Meredith gets Ruthie to find out if Tyler disconnects his cellphone because he has another, while he is considering his options whether to play baseball full time in his senior year semester as he already has enough credited courses.

Come in.

What the heck?

I'm doing a birthday party.

Or I'm supposed to do
a birthday party.

I told one of the mothers from
my "Mommy and Me" class I would,

but now Lucy's driving up
to see Simon,

and I think Savannah's too
young to take to the party,

so I'm hoping
mom can babysit.

Otherwise, I'll have
to drag Savannah along,

and I don't like her hanging out
with the older kids

because they're way too germy
at that age.

Boy, has your life changed.

Hey, I love my life.

Ah, who wouldn't love
putting on costumes

and hanging out
with mommies all day?

Seriously, it's great.
You should try it.

Maybe you could babysit.

No, I couldn't.
What are you?

You're kidding me, right?

I'm Roscoe.


Oh, of course,
Roscoe Riverton.

You haven't seen
Roscoe Riverton?

Oddly enough,
I-I rarely have time

to catch a cartoon
between shifts.

If you have time
to fly across the country

to visit your family,
you have time to watch Roscoe.

He's great.

He's like the
Loch Ness Monster,

only he's this gigantic rat,

and he lives
in the Mississippi River.

And he's friends
with this little boy,

and at night
he goes home with him

because he's scared of the dark.

The kid, not Roscoe.
Kevin, are you
on any medication?

Never mind.

Are you sure you can't babysit?

I'm positive.

I have a very busy day planned.

Doing what?

Well, if Lucy's going

to see Simon,
I think we can assume

there's something
interesting going on,

so I'm gonna go with her.

I don't think Lucy wants
anyone to go with her.

Even more interesting.
What's the problem?

I don't know.

What makes you think
there's a problem?

You don't, you don't
think there's a problem?

Other than my needing
a babysitter, no.

Lucy just wants to
drive up to see Simon.

What's happened to you?

Can you not put together

a simple crime investigation

Maybe you need to
get out of the costume

and slip back
into the uniform.

I mean, just, just imagine,
you're in blue, carrying a gun.

You sure you don't see
anything suspicious?

There's been no crime committed.

My wife just wants
to see her brother.

Roscoe, is that not
your first clue?

Something's going on.

Maybe you're right.

We need a plan.

Who's in the bathroom?

We got to get in there fast!

No one.

I thought we agreed those kids
are germy; they're in daycare,

they're older, they-they've
got things, lots of things.

I-I don't want Savannah

to get any of those things.

Matt will hold her.

He won't let her get anything.

What is he, Super Doctor?

He can't keep her
from getting sick.

I thought you were going
to ask my mom to watch her.

Matt said he would do it.

Well, then why can't he
come here and babysit?

Well, I guess he could.

Ask him to; insist on it.

Or you can take her with you.

I could, but it's
gonna be a long ride,

and I don't think
she'll enjoy it much.

She would if you play her tapes
in the car and you bring

the Cheerios in a bag
and she holds her rag doll.

I taught you that, okay?

You don't have to tell me how to
make Savannah happy in the car.

All right.

It's too long a ride.

How long are you
gonna be up there?

I don't know.

What are you gonna be doing?

Hanging out, talking,
brother-sister stuff.

Doesn't he have classes?

Yes, he has classes.

That's why I didn't
leave earlier.

He's in class in the morning.

He'll be finished
by the time I get up there.

So, you're going to do
what, go out to lunch?

Look, Officer, I'm going to
visit with my brother, okay?

What's with all the questions?

Just trying to get
a feel for your day,

that's all.

Because you're my wife,
and I care about you.

And I'm just wondering
if there's any other reason

you're driving
all the way up there

other than just to see Simon.

You're up to something.

You Camdens are a suspicious
bunch, you know that?

You sure you aren't
up to something?

Careful, you're starting
to sound like one of us.

I have to go.

What time will you be home?

I'll be home when I'm home.

I've got my cell phone,
you can call me

if you need me for anything.

You sure you're just
going up there to see Simon?


Hi. I haven't
seen you lately.

How's it going?

It's going fine, other than
I can't find anyone to date.

I'm sorry about Sam.

He's a nice guy,
but I understand.

Yeah, I'm just not
attracted to him.

Well, maybe if you
get to know him better.

I think that's out
of the question,

seeing as how he's
not speaking to me.

I offered to be
friends with him,

but it don't think it
would've worked out anyway.

Well, what about Jack?

Every time I see him,
he's talking to some girl.

A different girl every time.

Yeah, he's pretty popular.

I guess I didn't realize how
lucky I was that he liked me.

But you didn't like him, right?

So, it doesn't matter.

Right, doesn't matter.

You don't still
like him, do you?

No. I mean things are great
with Martin and me.

You sure?

Yeah. It's just that...

When you call him,
does he answer his phone?

No, he never answers.

And I leave him messages, and
he doesn't even call me back.

Yeah, he never answers
when I call him.

And he never has his phone
with him when we go out anymore.

It just makes me think
that... ugh, never mind.


I guess I'm just feeling
a little bit insecure.

I mean, he has a cell phone.

He calls me on the cell phone,
but he never has it with him.

Like he doesn't want somebody
to call him when he's with me.

You don't think that he's going
out with anybody else, do you?

No, I don't think so.

He seems so serious about me.

I mean, I don't think
that he would

be going out with somebody
else, but it's just odd.

Well, have you
asked him about it?

No, I don't want him to think
that I don't trust him.

Well, there might be
a simple explanation

that would make you
feel a lot better.

Have you asked him why he
never has his phone with him?

Well, just so you know,

I mean, I call him sometimes.

We're friends; I mean,
he lived at our house.

I know.

That's why I was thinking
that maybe you could ask him.

Okay, I'll ask him.

But that doesn't
mean he'll tell me.

Well, he doesn't
have practice today,

so maybe you could ask him
for a ride home.

Won't he be giving you
a ride home?

No, I have
a dentist appointment.

Okay, I'll ask him.

Find out if he's
seeing anybody else.

Mm, I'll try.

Thank you.


I think it is so smart of you

just to take the day off
and get away from it all.

Yeah, I just wanted
to take a drive.

To see Simon, I hear.
Kevin told you.

Matt, but it was really
an educated guess.

Why wouldn't you
want me to know?

I don't care if you know.

So, what'd you come by for?

I just wanted to grab
a book or two.

Oh, which ones?

Oh, I just wanted
to grab something to read

in case I have some time to
kill, waiting around for Simon.

So, uh...
So, any of them.

You pick.

You had no particular
book in mind?


Read this.

There's a chapter on, uh,
developing a poker face

and the importance
of that to the game.

But I don't play poker.

Well, that's probably good
because you have no poker face.

Sometimes as a minister,
it's good to put on a face

that doesn't give anything away
so that others don't suspect

that we're up to something other
than what we say we're up to,

you know what I mean?
I think so.

You're not going up to see Simon
for the reasons you said.

You're going up there
for some other reasons.

Did, did Rose not move out?

As far as I know,
she moved out.

I have to go.

Lou, it's Eric.

Uh, look, I have to
have some more time

to go over the
fourth quarter budget.

I want to ask Annie about
some things and get her advice.

So, let's get together tomorrow
afternoon instead of today.

I'm sorry for the
last-minute change.

I'll talk to you.

How long's this party?

She just wants me
for half an hour.

She's got Superman and Batman

and all the other superheroes
coming in one after the other.

I'm kind of opening for them.

Opening act.

Simon knows Lucy's
coming up there, right?

I would assume so.

Why would you assume
anything, Roscoe?

Why would she go up there

and take the chance on him
not being around?

I don't know, but why
don't we find out?


Hey, Simon.

Oh, it's you.

You were expecting?


I just wanted to let you know

that I would have
come up with Lucy today,

but, uh, I have to help
Kevin babysit.

Lucy's coming up here?


Are you sure?

You didn't know?

No, I-I didn't know.

Why is Lucy coming up here?

You tell me.

Uh, maybe she just
wants to see me.

You're not in any trouble
or anything, are you?

No, no, I'm not, no.

Rose moved out,
everything's cool.

What, is she checking up on me?


You're sure you're
not hiding anything?

What would I be hiding?

I don't know, it just
seems kind of strange

that Lucy would be
making a surprise visit

if there isn't anything wrong.

Did she say that
something was wrong?

No. She just said she wanted
to see you; we assumed you knew.

We who?

- Well, Kevin and me.
- All right.

If she's coming up here,
she's coming up here.

I don't really care.

But I've got nothing to hide.

So, maybe she does
just want to see me.

But I gotta get back
to class, so bye.

Are you coming?

That was Matt.

He said that Lucy's
coming up here.

Is that today?

She's coming up to see Sandy.

Yeah, I thought I told you.

No, you didn't tell me.

When did she talk to Sandy?

Mm, I think it was the first
of the week.

If I still lived here,
you'd know these things.

As it is, I guess I just
forgot to tell you.

Sandy said Martin
talked to Lucy.

He still hasn't called Sandy,
but he talked to Lucy.

I told him not to talk to her.

I told him to talk to my dad.

She's inexperienced.
She's gonna mess this up.

She can't handle
something this big.

Yeah, and Sandy has a big mouth.

Would you ask her to please

leave us out of any discussion
she has with Lucy?

I don't even know where she is.

I can't even focus.

All I can think about
is, how am I going to
take care of this baby?

Where are we going to live?
Where am I going to work?

Who's going to take care
of the baby when I'm at work?

I need Martin.

Or maybe you don't.

It would be nice if
you two were in love

and wanted to get married
and have this baby together,

but marrying someone
you don't want to be married to

and who doesn't want
to be married to you,

well... that can make
a tough situation

a lot tougher.

But I mean, Martin,
he's such a good guy.

He's so innocent
and honest and nice,

and not to mention really,
really good-looking.

And he's the father.

I'm sure he's the father.

Believe me, I would not be
pushing this poor guy into this

if I wasn't for absolute
certain he's the father.

I'm not saying he doesn't have
any responsibility in this.

And I'm not saying

that he should never be
involved in the child's life.

I mean, he should,
he absolutely should, but...

Go ahead.

I hate to be so blunt, but...
No, I can take it.

Just tell me what
you're thinking, please.

It's just so nice
to have someone to talk to.

Martin is a high school senior
whom you had casual sex with.

You don't know him and
he doesn't know you.

I mean, he's a nice guy
and you're a nice woman,

but getting to know someone
takes time,

and I know it feels like
you've got to make this

relationship happen right now

because you've only got
until the baby comes,

but in reality, I mean,

you've got a lifetime
to get to know Martin.

What am I supposed to do?

I mean, I can't go
through this alone, I can't.

I've always been alone,

and that's one reason
I really want the baby.

Because I want someone to love
and I want someone to love me

and I think Martin
could love me

and he could love the baby
and I could love him.


He could love you
and he could love the baby,

but if you try to force that,

if you try to make him
love you and the baby,

I think he's just
going to resent you

and want to turn and
run the other way.

So, what am I supposed to do?

I don't know what
you're supposed to do,

but I know what you could do.

You could give him a
little time and space

and let him come around and do
whatever he thinks is right

in his own time
and in his own way.

Until then?
I mean, until then,

do you have any close friends

that you could
rely on right now?

Someone you can talk to,
someone you can

go to your
doctor's appointments with?

Maybe Rose?

I mean, isn't Rose
a good friend?


Please, you've met her.

I don't know why we couldn't
go home and let me change.

Yeah, I am a rat.

I can't believe I let
Uncle Matt talk me into this.

Consider it your initiation
into the Camden family.

It's one thing to put a ring
on my sister's hand,

marry her and father a child,

it's another thing, a better
thing, to join with her brother

in a good old-fashioned
family caper.

Let's go home.

I'm sure she'll tell us
why she really came up here.

Oh, sure, we'll
find out eventually,

but why not find out now?

After all, Roscoe, we're here.

What, he, he gave her a ring?

An engagement ring?
A big one.

She had it all picked out.

When did he do that?

When he made her move out.

It was sort of
like a compromise.

Where did he get money
to buy her a ring?

Plastic, he charged it.

Simon never charges anything.

He can't stand to be in debt.

He's great with money.

Well, then I'm sure he'll be
making the payments on time,

but he'll be making payments.

Plenty of them.

What's he doing here?

Same thing we're
doing here.

There she is and
she's not with Simon.

Who is that?

That's Rose's friend,

Well, I am going to go
find Simon and Rose.

As long as I'm already up here,
I'd like to talk to them, too.

Okay, well, if she's
not wearing the ring,

you can't tell them
you know about it.

Ha, I won't, I promise.

Is something wrong?

I don't know,
I just get the feeling

that somebody's watching us.

Oh, they probably are.

I think I'm starting
to show a little bit,

and people are starting
to talk about it.

Well, I had some books for you,
but I will mail them,

and we are gonna find some
classes for you to go to.

Excuse me,
I will be right back.

What do you guys
think you're doing?!

Trying to find out
what you're doing.

Okay, guys, today
I am not your daughter,

I am not your sister,

I am not your wife.

I am Lucy Kinkirk.

The Reverend Lucy Kinkirk.

And you guys should all
be ashamed of yourselves.

I can't tell you what
I'm doing here, which is why

I didn't tell you why
I was really coming up here.

So, go home, okay?

Just go home.

You thought she wouldn't notice
a big rat walking around?

She didn't, not until
Savannah yelled to her.

Let's get out of here.
Yeah, let's.

I-I feel so ashamed.
Me, too.

No, you don't.

You feel stupid 'cause
we all got caught,

and now you're upset
that we have to leave.

Well, we do have to leave.

I can't even believe I did this.

I was so sure
Simon was in trouble.

He's making me crazy.

Yeah, I mean, we never would
have done this on our own

if Simon wasn't
making us so nuts.

We'll follow you.

Uh, no, that's okay.

I, uh, want to find
a restroom first.

Well, you know, there's, uh,
there's one at the gas station

um, at the freeway entrance.

Hey, if you're staying,
we're all staying.

We can't.

Ah, it's for you.


Eric Camden,
you get home right now.

I'm on my way, dear.

Don't you dear me.

And you tell Matt and Kevin
to get home, too.

The three of you, unbelievable!

We're, we're leaving right now.

Annie wants us home.

You had to get Lucy
a cell phone.

- Open up, Simon.
- It's me!

I saw you see me.

Let me in.

I want to talk to you.

I'm not leaving!

I will stay
here all day
and all night

and all day again
if I have to.

Hi, Luce. What
are you doing here?

Don't be all pleasant with me

when you weren't even
going to let me in.

No, I didn't hear you;
I was in the back.

The back of what?

It's one room.

It's great to see you again,
but I have class,

so I just came back
to get this book and...

I'll walk with you to class.

We can talk.

About anything you want.

Okay, 'cause it
just sounds like,

like you're angry
about something.

No, I'm not angry.

You have, like, angry
written all over your face.

I'm not angry.
Are we gonna walk or not?


Okay, look, I lied.

I just wanted to get a book so I
could hide out at the library.

I found out you were coming.

Look, Sandy told Rose,
Rose told me.

Oh, and where is Rose?

In class.

No, she moved out,
okay, I promise.

She doesn't live here anymore.

How did it go with Sandy?

Fine. It went fine.

Are you going to try
to get Martin to marry her?

Because I don't think
he has to necessarily,

even though that's
what she wants.

This is a personal matter,
a private and personal matter.

Yeah, a private and personal
matter that I knew about

and that I was involved with way
before you found out about it.

So I'm sure you can tell me
what's going on, can't you?

I'll let Sandy tell you as much
as she wants to tell you.

You know, Simon, this is
a very serious situation,

and I'm gonna ask you
to leave Martin alone.

Don't call him right now.

Just give me some time
and give him some time

to work this out, okay?

I'm serious.

I think he's feeling
really pressured right now.

That's what I said!

I told Sandy the same thing.

I know, and then

you agreed to call Martin
if Sandy didn't call Dad.

Why didn't you want
Sandy to call Dad?

Could it be that
he didn't want

Sandy talking to Dad
because she knows

some things you don't
want Dad to know?

I just didn't want her

calling Dad
and ratting out Martin.

And you wanted Martin
to call Dad because...?

Because I think he should call
and rat himself out.

And get some help.

All right, I guess
that makes sense.

But I think there's more to it.

I think Sandy knows
a lot of things

you don't want
Mom or Dad to know.

Anything you
want to tell me?

Aren't you that Camden

who finds out everything last?

You know, because
if I change something

as basic to, like,
the family structure

as that, this whole family
might just fall part.

I doubt it.

Hi, honey, I'm home.

What were you thinking?!

Well, last week you
sent me up there,

so this week
I went on my own.

What's the difference?
Well, last week, I sent you.

This week, I didn't know
anything about it

till Lucy called for help.



Come on,
what is she doing up there?

Nothing to do with Simon.

Something to do with Sandy.

Oh, good. So you found out
what's going on with Sandy?

Not exactly, but from
my observation, she's, uh...

Oh, no!

Oh, no.

Oh, no! Not Simon?

No, I don't think so.

That, oh, that doesn't
make any sense.

Oh, no.


Oh, hey. Look who
gave me a ride home.

I've got to get out
of this thing and relax

before Lucy comes home
and kills me.

No, no, you can't.

You have to see Sam and David.
Dad wanted you to.

They love that rat.

So, uh, who's the father?


Sandy, she's pregnant.

Where did you get that?

Where did I get that?

The woman's obviously pregnant.

Take my word for it.
I'm a doctor.

Almost a doctor.

I'm doctor enough to know
the woman's pregnant.

Wait-- not, not Simon, right?

No, I don't think so.
That wouldn't make sense.


So I don't think I should say,
it would only be a guess,

and Lucy already
wants to kill me.

Come on.

We can't have a caper like that

and keep secrets
from each other.

We're brothers.

You're making her crazy
not answering your phone.

You're make all of us crazy
not answering your phone.

Sorry, just started getting
some calls I don't want,

so I don't keep
my phone with me.

Calls from?

What are you,
on a, on a mission?

Yeah, you are. I can tell.
Did Meredith say something?

She thinks
you're seeing someone else.

I'm not seeing anyone else.

All right.

I'm not.

She's not thinking about
breaking up with me, is she?

No, she's worried about you
breaking up with her.

No, it... it's nothing.

It's just some phone calls,

some stupid phone calls.

I can't believe she'd think
I'd want to break up with her.

I mean, doesn't she know how
much I care about her by now?

I think she's just feeling
a little insecure.

I mean, we all know
great it is to be in
a relationship,

but it's also scary,
because at this age,

the relationships
don't always last.

Look, relationships

at any age don't always last.

And if you know something,
tell me.
No. Really.

I think she's just afraid
that you're hiding something,

like another girlfriend.

She really likes you, a lot.

I like her, too.

Good. So who are
the phone calls from?

Well, you call a lot.

Yeah, and you almost
never call me back.

You just seem
kind of down lately.

No, I'm not. I just have

a lot on my mind,
and this is the first year

I've lived with my dad, and
I'm still adjusting to that.

And it's my last year
of high school.

I've just been
worried about baseball,

about college,
about my future.

It's been kind of overwhelming.

And now it's not?

I talked to the counselor today,

and as it turns out,
I've already finished

all the courses I have to have
to graduate,

or I will, you know,
when I finish this semester.

And I can opt not to take
anything next semester

and still graduate
with the class

and still be eligible
to play ball.

So, if it gets to be
too much, I can

take it easy next semester
and give myself a break.

And do what?

Just go to baseball practice,
play ball.


I'd just be taking a bunch of
electives I don't need anyway.

Well, didn't you know that
coming into this year?

Yeah, but... I don't know.

Well, don't you want
to go to school?

It's your senior year;
you should enjoy it.

No, my point is,
if I'm not enjoying it,

then I don't have to go.

Thanks for the cookies.

It was, uh, good to see you.

It was good to
see you, too.

I'm going to go see Meredith
and make sure everything's okay.

Oh, and I don't think that
she wanted you to know

that she wanted me
to talk to you.

I won't say anything.

Oh, um, thanks for,
uh, being my friend.

You know, it's great
having a girlfriend, but, uh,

I still need my friends,
so thanks.


Wait, Luce.

I want to talk
to you, alone.

I really should
be going, Rose.

Uh, why don't you come down
with Simon this weekend?

Or why don't I just
call you instead?

You don't want me
to come, because
you don't think

your parents are
going to be happy
about the ring.

I don't think my parents
are going to be happy

about Simon
charging the ring.

Or that we're
officially engaged.

I don't know how they're
going to react to that.

But they know we're
getting married,

so why is the ring
such a big deal?

Well, I think that
Simon told them

that you would be
getting engaged in May,

and I think that they
think that the two of you

really need some time
to think this through.

But, you know, really,
I-I can't speak for them.

You got married
before you graduated.

Well, yes, but

Kevin's a little older
than I am,

and our financial situation
was a little different

since he'd been working
for several years.

And he's loaded.

That has nothing to do
with anything.

Th-That's not why I married him.
I love Kevin.

And your parents love him
and they don't love me.

None of us have
really gotten a chance

to get to know you yet, Rose.

I don't know why
they don't love me.

Why did they love Kevin
and they don't love me?

And don't tell me
they don't.

I can feel it.

They don't approve of
our getting married

because they don't
even like me.

Rose, it's just that...

You don't always seem to have
Simon's best interest at heart.

Like when you asked him to buy
you a ring he can't afford.

I mean, things like that

make parents worry;
it makes them question

whether or not you really
love my brother.

But I do love him.
I really do.

That's, that's why I want
to get married sooner.


I have the ring.

I want to get married this May.

I don't want to wait
until I graduate.

Again, you got married
before you graduated.

I mean, you, you even had a baby
before you graduated.

After I graduated,
but this isn't about me.

Why can't you
just be on my side?

Aren't you supposed
to be a Christian?

Aren't you supposed
to love everyone?

I mean, I thought you and I
could be like sisters.

Maybe we can, but...

Luce, I thought about
what you said,

and I thought of something.
Hi, Rose.

I was talking to her.

Okay, well, now I need
to talk to her.

Rose, can I call you tomorrow?

And I'll give some thought
to what you said.

Fine. Call me tomorrow.

You thought
of something.

My dad, my real dad,
lives in Los Angeles.

I thought maybe now's
a good time to call him.

Maybe if he knows
that I'm in trouble,

he'll help me.
Maybe it's a good

opportunity for him, right?

Yeah. Maybe.

I don't know, I mean,

I don't know
if he'd do it, but...

Maybe it was a stupid idea.

It's worth thinking about.
I know where he lives.

I got his phone number
off the Internet.

All right, well, let me have it,
and I'll see what I can do.

But just keep thinking

about how capable you are
of handling your own life.

Thanks. And thanks
for everything.

I just have a feeling

that you're going to make this
all all right somehow.

Sorry, am I drooling?

A little.

Are you okay?

When you don't have
very good dental care

for most of your life, it's
a little tough to get caught up.

I'm sorry.

No, don't be.

I can't tell you how great it is
to get to go to the dentist.

And my mom takes me or my dad.

So you're calling them
"Mom" and "Dad" now?

Yeah, I am.

I don't know if they'll ever
legally adopt us,

but I think of them
as Mom and Dad.

So, yesterday, I just decided
to start calling them that.

It feels great.
I'm really happy

everything's working out
for you.

Thank you. Me, too.

I love being in a family,

having my brother
and my sisters around.

I'm really lucky.

You think you'll ever
have children?

You know,
if you get married,

you think you'll have children?

I want children.

Yeah, children would,
uh, be great,

I guess.

I'm going
to adopt them all.

There are so many children
out there

that need homes like we did.

I don't know why people

have babies
that don't want them.

Am I drooling again?

Um, no, I'd, uh,
better be going.

I have homework.

I'll call you.

Or I could call you,

but you never seem to have
your phone with you.

It's just that
when I'm with you,

I don't want anyone
to interrupt us.

And when you're not with me?

I think about you.

I always think
about you.

I don't want anyone else,

Ruthie talked to you,
didn't she?

You know, you could
have just talked to me.

I'm not seeing anyone else.

I mean, I dated other girls
before I dated you,

but I wish I hadn't.

I'm not going out
with anyone else.

I'm not even talking
to anyone else,

other than Ruthie.

Yeah, I'm sorry about that.

I just didn't know if you

considered it any

of my business if you were
dating someone else.

But let's go back to you wish

you hadn't gone out
with anybody before me.

Are we talking about
dating or something else?

Um, I was talking

about dating.

Are we talking about dating
someone you had sex with?

I mean, why would
you regret dating
somebody before me?

I don't know.
Yeah, you do.

You wish that
you hadn't had sex.

What are you talking about?

Wh-Why are you saying that?

Well, is it true?


Have you had sex?

Because Ruthie told me

that you swore
that you weren't going

to have sex until you
got married, and that
sounded really good to me.

I think we've talked enough
for one day.

It's, uh, that Sandy girl,
isn't it?

You had sex with her.

That's why
she's following you around

and, and why she keeps
calling you.

And that's whose phone calls
you're avoiding.

Oh, I knew it!

I don't want to talk about it.
Well, you brought it up.

No, I didn't.
Yes, you did.

Oh, my God!

That cheap hoochie mama!

Well, I would call her something
else, but I don't believe

in women calling
other women bad names.

So if you're seeing her,

just... tell me.

Because if you are seeing her,

and I think you know
what I mean by "seeing,"

then we are not
going out anymore.

I'm not seeing her.

I said I wish I'd never
had seen her,

and I don't want
to see her again.

You promise?

I promise.

Uh, ouch. Ouch.


I love you, Meredith.

You do?

Yeah, I do.

I love you, too.

But do not tell Ruthie Camden
or anyone else,

because if word
gets out that you and... Sandy

"saw" each other,
my dad might find out.

If my dad finds out,

I'm going to have
to quit seeing you, 'cause

I just couldn't go out
with a guy

that he doesn't approve of
after all he's done for me.

Believe me, I am not going
to say anything to Ruthie.

So you love me?

Can I just tell Ruthie
that part of the conversation,

'cause I have to tell someone?

All right.

Hey, Martin.

Twice in one day.

Come on in.

Everything okay?

Yeah. I was just
looking for Lucy.

She took a drive
up to see Simon.

She's not back yet.
Hmm, okay.

Well, uh, good night.

Anything I can do for you?

Uh, no.

But, uh, thanks.
Good night.

You're sure?

I'm sure.

Good night.
Everything okay
with you and your dad?

Everything's fine.

My dad's been really
busy with work lately.

So he's enjoying
the landscaping business?

He seems to be.

Hey, how's your aunt?

How are things going
for her in New York?


She's, uh, got a new line
of socks coming out.

See ya.
School okay?

Yeah. It's pretty easy
this year.

So, better be going.
Last year

of high school, huh?

Boy, it's an exciting time.

Lots of thoughts
about the future, I imagine.

Loads. Really have to go.

And Meredith?

You and Meredith still dating?

No one else but Meredith.

She's, she's a nice girl.

The nicest. Look, tell Lucy
I was looking for her

if you see her.
Okay? Thanks.

Sure there's nothing
I can do to...

help you?

Was that Martin?

That was he.

Well, did he want me?

No, uh, looking for Lucy.

For what?

Didn't say.

I bet I know.

Do you?
Do you?


He told Meredith he loves her.
Why would he

want to tell Lucy that he told
Meredith he loves her?

Well, because
he talked to Lucy,

and I guess
she told him that he

should tell Meredith
how he feels about her.

You think?

Yeah. I saw it coming.

She was nervous that he
had another girlfriend.

He was nervous that she

didn't think he liked her.

I figured they'd say
the "L" word.

Huh, sounds like they're getting
serious about each other.

I guess.
Your mom

thinks that you like Martin.

You know,

like like Martin.

I like him as a friend.
A friend

that maybe someday
you hope to go out with?

Maybe someday.

I don't know.

Relationships don't seem to last
as long as real friendships,

so I might not date
him ever, because I want

to be his friend
for the rest of my life.

I wouldn't want dating
to get in the way of that.

Sounds like a good plan.

I like that.

I hope you and Martin
are friends

for the rest of your lives,
good friends.

Good friends are hard to find,

even harder to keep.

Good night.

Good night, Ruthie.

Love you.

Love you, too.

And then,
♪ Dun-dun-dun dun! ♪

Good night,

Good night, Ruthie.
Good night, Ruthie.

Love you.
Love you, too.

Me, too.
Good night, Matt.

Night, Ruthie.

Where was I?

♪ Dun-dun-dun dun! ♪
♪ Dun-dun-dun dun! ♪

Oh, right.
♪ Dun-dun-dun dun! ♪

The door flew open,
and little Jonathan's mommy

stuck her head in the room just
as I couldn't hold it any longer

and let out a big...

And then what?

Then Jonathan,
not wanting his mother

to know I'm under the bed
says, "Excuse me."

And, Jonathan's mother said,
"I didn't hear a thing.

Good night."

And the moral of this story
is, sometimes if you're

really good friends with
someone, you have to cover

for them until they're ready
to reveal themselves.

Okay, that's it.
You have to go to bed.

Night, Roscoe.
Night, Roscoe.

Good night.

Love you, Matt.
Love you, Matt.

Love you, Sam and David.

Hi. I didn't
hear you out here.

Yes, you did.
Did I?

Nice story.
Yeah, well...

I was just kind of making
it up as I went along.

So, I guess we're
all just, uh,

covering until our
friend is ready to
reveal himself, huh?

You know, Kevin knows,
Lucy knows, your dad knows,

I know, Simon knows,
Rose knows...

How long before
everybody knows?

I don't know,
but whenever it is,

it'll be too soon.

Hi. Is Kevin here?

They went home.

Savannah was tired.

Long day for her.

Long day for you,
too, I imagine.

Yeah, longer than
I expected it to be.

You want to talk?

I don't know.

I-I guess not.
I... I'm not sure

it would be ethical to tell
you everything I know.

How about just the part
about my family?

Sorry, I don't think I can.

All right.

You say "all right"
because you know that

I'm not going to be
able to keep everything

I know secret
for very long.

I'm scared, Dad.

I really am scared.

I don't know what I thought
your work was all about,

or how I thought my work
would be any different,

but it... it's really
frightening that people

are relying on me to help
them make decisions

that are... so important.

Want a little advice?

I could use some advice, yeah.

We're not superheroes.

We're not super reverends.

We're just people.

People who rely on life

to show us the way,

so we can show others.


I need to remember that.

I need to rely on a higher power

so that I can get others
to follow my lead.


Just a reminder.

And Luce,

I love you.

I love you, too.

All right, I know
you're there for me,

so bring it on.

Very funny.

Want me to walk you home? I've
got to return this to Kevin.

Um, sure, thanks.

But my car's
in the driveway,

so I'll just
drive you over.

I just want to make
a phone call.

Can you wait outside?

Still working?

All right, well, I...

I wouldn't want to interfere
in any way ever again.

Apology accepted.
