#913 : Parents en détresse

Quand Lucy invite des gens pour qu'ils voient le bébé, Annie s'en mêle immédiatement, réalisant que Lucy ne comprend pas vraiment les risques qu'il y a à exposer un nourrisson à des étrangers. La détermination de Lucy à montrer à tout le monde qu'elle est une bonne mère pousse Kevin à se poser des questions sur son rôle de père, surtout quand ils sont tous les deux. Les nouveaux parents Kevin et Lucy reviennent habiter dans la maison des Camden, et Martin prend leur appartement. Eric s'inquiète car il a l'impression qu'Annie et lui aident trop Lucy et Kevin et que ça ne les aide pas à se rendre compte qu'ils sont parents. Zoe, une camarade de classe de Martin, s'endors exprès sur son canapé pour pouvoir dire ensuite à tout le monde à l'école qu'ils ont couché ensemble. Quand Ruthie apprend la nouvelle, elle en profite pour faire du chantage à Martin, en lui demandant de lui arranger un rendez-vous avec Vincent, un garçon qui lui plait.

Camden's House - Kevin and Lucy's Room

Eric: (sighs)

Eric: Pssst, Kevin. Come, come... here...

Camden's House - Hallway

Kevin: I can't tell if she's still breathing.

Eric: If you wake up the baby again, Lucy's gonna be upset, she needs to sleep. You need to sleep, too. The baby's breathing, I'm sure the baby's breathing. Go back to bed; get some sleep while you can.

Kevin: We should have stayed in the hospital a week or two until we had a chance to be around her more, they shouldn't have sent us home so soon, I can't believe they let me have this baby without some sort of certification or something.

Eric: Well, that's why you have Annie and me, we, we know all about babies. Savannah's gonna be fine. You're gonna be fine. Lucy's gonna to be fine.

Savannah: (cries)

Eric: Do you want some help?

Kevin: No, I've got it under control, thanks.

Camden's House - Kevin and Lucy's Room

Lucy: (yawns)

Lucy: I'll take her. Come on, sweetie.

Kevin: Can I do anything?

Lucy: We're fine.

Camden's House - Eric and Annie's Room

Annie: How's our little Savannah?

Eric: The baby's fine, but Kevin seems to think that she can't breathe if he's not watching her. He's not gettin' any sleep.

Annie: Well, that's okay. The three of them have the rest of their lives to sleep, they'll be fine.

Eric: Yeah, they'll be fine, but sooner or later, they've got to do this on their own.

Annie: They will, and it's okay if we help out a little bit.

Eric: Yeah, a little, but it's been more than a little.

Annie: I'm enjoying every minute of it.

Eric: We're just the grandparents, they're the parents.

Annie: I know that.

Eric: They're gonna have to move at some point.

Annie: Oh, they will, eventually.

Eric: Eventually meaning...?

Annie: Eventually...I'm a little worried about Martin out there in the garage apartment all by himself. It might be kind of scary out there all alone. He says he's sleeping okay, but I don't know.

Camden's House - Kitchen

Martin: Good morning...

Sam: Good morning...

David: Good morning...

Martin: Where is everyone?

Sam: Upstairs...

Martin: So your dad didn't leave for work yet?

David: No, he's helping with the baby.

Martin: And your mom?

Sam: Helping with the baby.

Martin: And Kevin and Lucy?

Sam/David: With the baby.

Martin: And Ruthie?

Sam: She's bringing the garbage cans in from in front of the house.

Camden's House - Foyer

Ruthie: Good morning...

Martin: Good morning...

Ruthie: How was your night? Sleep okay?

Martin: I slept fine.

Ruthie: Really...

Martin: Really...

Ruthie: I bet. I just saw Zoe. I'm not sure, but I think she was still wearing the same clothes she was wearing when I saw her last night.

Martin: Sometimes people do that; wear the same thing two days in a row.

Ruthie: I've never seen anyone do that.

Martin: Sure, it happens.

Ruthie: I don't think so.

Ruthie: Oh, I moved the garbage cans out front.

Eric: Well, thanks, I, I gonna take the boys to school.

Ruthie: I'll ride with you.

Martin: Nooo... I, I can take you.

Ruthie: Oh, I've hardly gotten to spend anytime with my dad since the new baby in the house, so, I think I'll ride with him and the boys, but thanks for the offer.

Eric: You two aren't fighting again, are you?

Martin: No...

Eric: Ah, then she must want something.

Martin: She said she wanted to have some time with you.

Eric: Ah, if she wants to have some time with me, she wants something. And you don't know what that something is?

Martin: No...

Eric: Oh...

Camden's House - Nursery

Kevin: How's it going?

Lucy: Fine... Mary told me horror stories about breast-feeding, but pretty lucky, it's come pretty quickly for me.

Kevin: I think we should ride over and take a look at the house.

Lucy: The baby can't go out yet.

Kevin: Maybe we could run out between feedings, and Mom and Dad could watch the baby.

Lucy: I'm really looking forward to seeing the house, but I think it's too soon to try to go out... maybe when the baby's sleeping for more than two hours at a time.

Kevin: How soon do you wanna move?

Lucy: Oh, I don't know, maybe in a couple of months when we don't need so much help, I guess. I mean, we're gonna need sometime to get furniture and get everything set everything up, and since I didn't get to choose the house, I at least want to choose what goes into the house. Not that I'm not thrilled that you bought it, I am, I really am.

Kevin: I could hire some help. I could get a decorator.

Lucy: What's going on? Are you trying to get me to move into the house just so no one can see me breast-feeding our daughter?

Kevin: I guess, yeah. I just didn't realize you'd be so... free about it.

Lucy: Well, neither did I. I feel good about it. I feel so... motherly. Me, Lucy Camden Kinkirk, I'm a mother.

Kevin: Yeah, okay, but you're a wife, you're my wife.

Lucy: And your wife needs to feed our daughter. So ah, I'll feed her and you can change her.

Kevin: (sighs)

Kevin: Tell you what, you feed her and change her for the next three months, and then I'll feed her and change her once she gets on a bottle.

Lucy: Well, I was planning on breast-feeding for six months, and I don't mind changing her, if you don't really want to.

Kevin: I want to... it's just...

Lucy: Just...?

Kevin: That umbilical cord is so freaky.

Lucy: Yeah, it's kind of freaky, but it'll fall off.

Kevin: Fall off? Can't the doctor just take it off?

Lucy: No, he can't. It'll fall off when it's ready, it'll be fine.

Kevin: I'm sorry, I just didn't realize babies were so...

Lucy: Human?

Kevin: I was gonna say gross.

Lucy: Hmmm... yeah... they are.

Kevin: I'm gonna go try to catch a nap.

Lucy: I think I'll stay up until the next feeding, get a shower, clean up a little bit.

Kevin: You have to be tired.

Lucy: Well, I'll be tired later. Right now, I'm just too happy to sleep.

Camden's House - Foyer

Door: (knocks)

Mrs. Beeker: Ah... hello, Annie. This is for the baby and I also brought a casserole.

Annie: That's so nice of you, thanks.

Mrs. Beeker: Sooo... how's our little pumpkin doing today?

Annie: Oh, she's doing great, she really is.

Mrs. Beeker: You know I would really love to see her.

Annie: Well, you know she's only a couple of weeks old, and we're just trying very hard to make sure she does not pick up any germs; you know how delicate babies are.

Mrs. Beeker: I'm healthy as a horse and as germ free as anyone could possible get.

Annie: (laughs)

Annie: Well...

Lucy: Oh hi, Mrs. Beeker.

Mrs. Beeker: Hi...

Lucy: Nice to see you. Is that for the baby?

Mrs. Beeker: Yes...

Lucy: Oh, come on in.

Mrs. Beeker: Oh, thank you.

Lucy: I just put her down; want to take a peek at her?

Mrs. Beeker: I would love to.

Camden's House - Nursery

Mrs. Beeker: Oh, hi, Daddy.

Kevin: Hi...

Lucy: I just wanted to show off the baby.

Mrs. Beeker: Oh, she is adorable. Open your present. Well, so you had to go with the childbirth... bet you weren't planning on that.

Lucy: No, but it wasn't that bad, a little scary, but it all happened so quickly... Oh, I love it.

Mrs. Beeker: Oh, I'm so glad. Oh... it's you.

Camden's House - Kitchen

Door: (knocks)

Annie: Oh, hi...

Lou: I just wanted to drop some papers off for Eric to sign.

Annie: Oh well, he took the boys to school; he said he was gonna work at the church this morning.

Lou: Oh, I, I didn't know. Ah, so how's the baby... is there any, any chance of gettin' a look at her?

Mrs. Beeker: Oh, Lou, you should see that little angel. She is just so beautiful.

Lucy: Come on up...

Lou: Thanks...

Mrs. Beeker: Oh, I'm just so glad Lucy's not one of those fussy mothers who doesn't want people around the baby. You were so protective of the twins, Annie; I thought we wouldn't see them till they went off to school.

Mrs. Beeker: (laughs)

Annie: (laughs)

Mrs. Beeker: Oh that Lucy, she's so generous, you know what I mean?

Annie: Yeah...

Annie: (nods)

Mrs. Beeker: Well, I know my way out.

Camden's House - Nursery

Lucy: Honey, we've got company.

Kevin: Hi ya', Lou.

Lou: Still not getting any sleep, huh? That's typical.

Lucy: It's not that bad. So here she is.

Lou: Beautiful... just like her mother.

Lucy: Ah, thanks...

High School - Hallway

Martin: Hey, I wanna talk to you.

Ruthie: Yeah, I thought you might.

Martin: You didn't talk to your dad about...?

Ruthie: Your sleepover? No...

Martin: Can we keep it between us?

Ruthie: Sure, I mean, everyone's so busy with the baby, I don't think any one but me noticed anything. I was thinking though, there's a boy in my class, a guy I'd kind of like to go out with. So, maybe you and Zoe and Vincent and I could double date.

Martin: Sure...

Ruthie: You just have to get him to ask me out.

Martin: But I don't know Vincent.

Ruthie: I'll point him out to you.

Martin: So, if I can get him to go out with you, you won't say anything. You're blackmailing me?

Ruthie: That's not blackmail. Please, it's more of a favor. I'll do you the favor of not mentioning your date, if you'll get me a date.

Martin: Fine... Hey, so what happened?

Zoe: Nothing... I told my parents I fell asleep on your couch.

Martin: And they were okay with that?

Zoe: Well, they weren't happy but they didn't get that upset. They know you live with the Camdens.

Martin: So they think you fell asleep on the Camdens' couch?

Zoe: I didn't say it, they just sort of assumed it, and since Eric's a minister at a church and everything, they seemed all right with it.

Martin: Well, I've got to go find some freshman named Vincent.

Zoe: Ah, wait, I needed to talk to you about something else.

Martin: We'll have to talk later, sorry.

Camden's House - Kitchen

Phone: (ringing)

Eric on Phone: Hello? Yeah, this Reverend Camden. No, not... I would never think badly of your daughter. Yeah, I'm sure. Well, yeah, school is a lot of pressure these days...

Camden's House - Nursery - Upstairs Hallway

Eric: Oh, sorry...

Lucy: Oh, it's okay.

Eric: No, I was just looking for your mom.

Lucy: (chuckles)

Annie: Well, hi... what do you need?

Eric: I didn't realize she was feeding the baby. Uhhh... okay, I just had a phone call I think you might be interested in.

Annie: I hope it's not more people wanting to see the baby. I can't believe that Lucy's not upset. There's been people in and out of the house all day wanting to see the baby, and she's just thrilled that everyone wants to see the baby.

Eric: You weren't like that at all.

Annie: Well, most mothers aren't.

Eric: Right, but then again most mothers are having to do laundry, clean the house, and cook as well as take care of the baby. But, it's nice that we can do all that for Lucy and Kevin... nice that you can do all that for them.

Annie: Yes, it is.

Eric: But...

Annie: But... what about the phone call.

Eric: Zoe's dad called me. Zoe is the young woman who was, umm... studying with Martin last night... her dad called saying that ah, he was very embarrassed that she had fallen asleep on our couch last night. And he hoped we wouldn't think badly of her for it, what with my being a minister and all.

Annie: Martin's date slept over?

Eric: Apparently.

Annie: Well, maybe ah, maybe Martin needs to move out of the garage apartment and back into the house.

Eric: Back where?

Annie: Well, he can just share the room with the twins.

Eric: Or maybe, if we weren't so busy with the baby, we'd know these things. Besides, I have a better idea. I wanna just wait and see if Martin says anything and I also want to wait and see if Ruthie says anything 'cause I saw the two of them talking this morning, and she knows about Martin and Zoe, I'm sure she knows.

Annie: But, it wouldn't be right for Ruthie to say anything. Martin should say something.

Eric: I think he will, unless...

Annie: Unless what?

Eric: I wonder why he didn't.

Annie: Because he thinks he got away with it.

Eric: No, he knows he didn't get away with it, Ruthie saw him.

Annie: Oh, by the way, did you by any chance let the boys make their lunch today?

Eric: Yes, I did, why?

Annie: Well, the teacher suggests that they don't pack ice cream sandwiches, and we owe the teacher two school lunches.

Kevin: I went out to get more thank you notes.

Annie: Oh, I can help with those.

Kevin: No, really, you've helped with everything else, it's the least I can do is write a few notes. Did we have any more visitors?

Annie: Well, you just missed the Cordells.

Kevin: The who?

Annie: They go to our church.

Annie: (sighs)

Camden's House - Nursery

Lucy: I just put her down.

Kevin: She looks like a mummy.

Lucy: Ah, she's swaddled. It makes her feel like she's in the womb. It puts her right to sleep.

Kevin: It just looks unnatural.

Lucy: It's very natural. It's the same pressure the baby feels in the womb.

Kevin: Okay, if you say so.

Lucy: I'm gonna go take a nap.

Kevin: I was gonna take a nap.

Lucy: Great, we can nap together. She's breathing you don't have to watch her.

Kevin: Just the same, I'll nap in the rocker.

Lucy: I wish you wouldn't worry so much.

Kevin: Well, maybe I wouldn't have to if you did worry just a little. You know how many germs came through here today? You know how many people saw me in my underwear or just lying in bed like I'm useless?

Lucy: Honey, everyone knows new parents don't get any sleep. And you do need to sleep; you're getting a little... cranky.

Kevin: Well, why aren't you getting a little cranky, why don't you need to sleep? I'll tell you why, because your mom is doing everything, and that leaves you all peppy and happy like some, some Stepford mommy.

Savannah: (cries)

High School - Hallway

Ruthie: Glad I caught you. I've gonna catch the bus. He's right over there. Vincent... See you tomorrow, Vincent.

Martin: Hi, I'm Martin Brewer. I live with Ruthie and her family.

Vincent: Ruthie?

Martin: Ruthie Camden...

Vincent: Oh... her dad's some kind of preacher, isn't he?

Martin: Yeah, he is and he's, he's really nice. The whole family's nice. Ruthie too, don't you think?

Vincent: I guess.

Martin: You should ask her out.

Vincent: Ask her out to what?

Martin: I don't know... piazza... a movie.

Vincent: If I asked her out, I'd have to meet her dad, right?

Martin: Yeah, I'm sure you probably would.

Vincent: Did my parents set this up?

Martin: No, I don't know your parents.

Vincent: Maybe my parents got the preacher to get Ruthie to get you to get me to ask her out just so he could meet me.

Martin: Ah no, I don't think so.

Vincent: I know I smell a rat.

Martin: There's no, no rat.

Vincent: You don't know my parents. Maybe this is their way of tricking me into seeing the preacher just so he'll talk to me.

Martin: About...?

Vincent: Nothing... I've got a problem, kind of. I think I'm gonna pass.

Camden's House - Kitchen

Eric: Hey, do want a snack?

Ruthie: Sure... how's the baby?

Eric: She's doing really well, how are you doing?

Ruthie: Fine...

Eric: I really appreciate how you've been helping out around the house since the baby got home.

Ruthie: No problem.

Eric: And thanks for takin' the garbage cans out to the front of the house this morning.

Ruthie: Happy to do it.

Eric: I'm sure Martin wouldn't mind, if we just showed him the schedule and told him when the trash pickups are.

Ruthie: Okay, but I really don't mind.

Eric: Well, all right, if you really like doing it. How's Martin doing out there in the garage anyway? Your mom's worried that he might not be sleeping out there, you know, he might be lonely away from the rest of us.

Ruthie: I think he likes it, I don't think he's lonely.

Eric: Did he say that or is it just something you've... seen?

Phone: (rings)

Eric on Phone: Hello?

Camden's House - Kitchen / Vincent's House

Vincent on Phone: Yeah, is this Ruthie's dad?

Eric on Phone: It is, who's this?

Vincent on Phone: It's Vincent.

Eric on Phone: Hi... do you want to talk to Ruthie?

Vincent on Phone: No look, I know what the scam is all about, okay. My parents called you, didn't they?

Eric on Phone: No...

Vincent on Phone: Ah, come on, I know they did. They've been trying to get me to talk to you.

Eric on Phone: Honest, they haven't called, ah, but if you need to talk to somebody, I'm available.

Vincent on Phone: Now?

Eric on Phone: Well, sure, come on over. Do you know where we live?

Vincent on Phone: Yeah...

Eric on Phone: See you soon.

Camden's House - Kitchen

Ruthie: Who was that?

Eric: Someone named Vincent.

Ruthie: Did he ask to speak to me?

Eric: No, no he asked if I was your dad.

Ruthie: Is he coming over?

Eric: Mmmhmm...

Eric: (nods)

Ruthie: I think I know what this is about. He probably wants to ask you permission to take me out on a date. I think he likes me.

Eric: Well... that's nice.

Ruthie: I'm old enough to date.

Eric: Old enough isn't the issue. Mature enough is the issue and it depends on who the date is with.

Ruthie: I'm sure you'll like him.

Eric: I like everyone, doesn't mean I like them well enough to date my daughter.

Camden's House - Foyer

Door: (bells rings)

Eric: I'll get it.

Zoe: Hi, is Martin home?

Eric: Uh, no, he's at practice.

Zoe: Oh well, do you mind if I wait for him in the apartment?

Eric: Ah, you can wait in the loving room if you like.

Zoe: Okay, I'll wait for him in the living room.

Linda: Hi, Reverend Camden.

Madeline: We're here to see the baby.

Eric: Oh, all right, ah, let me just go up and see if this is a good time.

Camden's House - Upstairs Hallway

Kevin: I'm sorry, but I've had it. I love your family, but I want to be alone with the baby.

Lucy: You don't want to be alone! You want me to be alone!

Kevin: That's not true.

Lucy: Yes, it is, I'm proud of us, I'm proud of the baby, I want everyone who wants to see her to see her!

Kevin: I'm proud of us and I'm proud of the baby, but I need some sleep. Besides, you're just showing off how good you are at this whole mommy thing.

Camden's House - Foyer

Eric: I'm afraid... um... the baby is sleeping right now.

Linda: I don't know how.

Vincent: I'm Vincent, should I just get in line or what?

Camden's House - Eric's Office

Eric: So, what is it your parents are insisting that you do? Are they insisting you do your homework? Clean up your room? Something like that? They're not insisting that you take out my daughter, are they?

Vincent: I figured that was your plan.

Eric: My plan to...

Vincent: Get me into here.

Eric: So you came in anyway... hoping not to take out my daughter.

Vincent: Nah, I, I might want to take her out of you let me take her out. I just, I just don't think you'll let me take her out because you're not the kind of guy to approve of a kid going against the demands of his parents.

Eric: And exactly what are they demanding? Could we just hone in on that and we'll get back to the other stuff?

Vincent: They want me to go to church, I don't want to.

Eric: Do they go to my church?

Vincent: No, they don't go to church at all, but they think I need to go to church because they don't know what to so with me.

Eric: Huh, interesting...

Vincent: Interesting to you, annoying to me.

Eric: What do you mean by they don't know what to so with you? You're sure you're not in any kind of trouble?

Vincent: Other than refusing to go to church, no.

Eric: You know, church isn't that bad, I mean if nothing else it can prove you with sort of a moral compass for making a lot of difficult decisions.

Vincent: Yeah, but so can comic books you know... good normally triumphs over evil in comic books.

Eric: Yeah my, my son, Simon, used to be into comic books, too, when he was younger.

Vincent: And how's he doing?

Eric: Well... uh... the thing is, as you do grow up, life can sometimes get more complicated that it seems, what is right and what is wrong can seem a lot less clear than they once was when you were younger, less simplistic than, say how their presented in comic books.

Vincent: Simon's in trouble?

Eric: No, no, this, this isn't really about Simon, okay. But... ah, where... uh, where do you stand, for example, ah, on the issue of sex... any guidance in the comic books on that subject?

Vincent: Are you asking as Ruthie's dad or as a minister?

Eric: Well, see? Complicated... because I am both Ruthie's dad and a minister, but I have a clear point of view on this... which is that teenagers shouldn't have sex. Sex is for married couples.

Vincent: Okay, so, what if Ruthie doesn't get married in her twenties or her thirties and she's in her mid-forties, on her own, earning her own money, living in her own house and she's madly in love with this great guy who just has a fear of commitment?

Eric: Don't care if she's eighty. The answer is still no.

Vincent: This is why I don't want to go to church.

Eric: Because look, if, if Ruthie's still single and available in her forties, you'd like to have that kind of relationship with her? Wouldn't it be better to resolve your commitment phobia? Which I, I might add, could be done by going to church.

Vincent: How did this get to be so personal? I don't have a commitment phobia, I was just using that as an example. Geez...

Eric: You're right, I'm sorry.

Vincent: Well, I guess I was the one who gave the example using Ruthie.

Eric: What church where your parents raised in? Where did they go when they we children?

Vincent: They didn't and they don't wanna go now.

Eric: Is there anything that would make you wanna go to church?

Vincent: Give up getting up late, watching cartoons and hanging out in my pajamas... it would have to be something pretty big.

Eric: What cartoons are you watching on Sunday morning?

Vincent: Superhero stuff, kind of like the comics I'm into, was into, when I was younger.

Eric: Maybe it's time to graduate from superhero cartoons and comics to ah, reality. Life is real. The force behind life is real. And it's faster than a speeding bullet... more powerful than a locomotive... able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Vincent: (chuckles)

Eric: (winces)

Vincent: All right, you swear my parents didn't get you to get Ruthie to get Martin to ask me to take her out just so I'd get trapped over here, talk to you and end up at church.

Eric: I don't swear, but that didn't happen. Swear that you really don't really want to start going to church. Swear you're not over here just to go out with my daughter.

Vincent: I swear.

Eric: The whole truth and nothing but the truth?

Vincent: All right, well, I might want to take Ruthie out.

Vincent: So she just got Martin to ask me to take her out because she wants to go out with me? Had nothing to do with my parents or this whole church issue?

Eric: (shakes head no)

Vincent: Interesting...

Eric: It is, isn't it?

Camden's House - Living Room

Zoe: Where have you been?

Martin: I had practice; I didn't know you were coming over.

Zoe: Well, I would have called, but this is kind of important. You, you don't mind if I tell people that we... you know... that we slept together last night, do you? I mean other than my parents. I kind of fell asleep on purpose so that I could sleep over. It's just I'm tired of people thinking I've never... done anything so I, you know, told a few of my friends that we slept together.

Martin: Uhmm... I don't think that was the best idea. Uhmm... in fact, I don't think it was a good idea at all, in fact, it makes me kind of angry.

Zoe: Are you kidding? You know, you'd be a pretty lucky guy if I did decide to hook up with you, and by hook up, I mean hook up. And, everyone else at school seems to be... hooking... other than the two of us.

Martin: That's not true.

Zoe: Yes it is, we're not normal. And, I want people to think I'm normal whether I am or not.

Martin: I don't like telling lies. I don't like hiding things.

Zoe: Well, if I decide to tell my parents that I lied and that I slept on the couch in your apartment, I don't think they're going to like it.

Martin: So either I go along with your lie, or you tell your parents the truth that I don't want them to hear. What you tell your parents is up to you, but we can't see each other anymore. And we're not friends!

Camden's House - Attic Room

Ruthie: So, Zoe's in the living room. What's up?

Martin: Nothing...

Ruthie: If you're looking for advice, I don't think I'd have another sleepover.

Martin: I made a mistake, a simple, honest mistake and if I hadn't lied about it...

Ruthie: You didn't lie about it.

Martin: I didn't tell your parents, which is the same as lying about it, and, and I hate to tell you this, but Vincent isn't interested in going out with you. He says he has some kind of problem.

Ruthie: Well, it must not be a very big problem, and he must be interested because he's downstairs talking to dad.

Martin: He thinks that his parents called your dad and your dad got me to ask Vincent to ask you out just to get him over here for some kind of counseling.

Ruthie: They've been down there a long time.

Martin: Which means he must have a problem like I said. But I, I have a problem, too. Uhmm, I'm going to tell your parents about Zoe sleeping over.

Ruthie: Why?

Martin: Because it's dishonest not to tell them, and I'm not going to be blackmailed by you or by Zoe.

Ruthie: How am I blackmailing you?

Martin: You made me try to get Vincent to go out with you.

Ruthie: That wasn't blackmail; that was more of a favor.

Martin: That's not exactly how it was put to me.

Ruthie: Yes, it was, I helped you, so you should help me.

Martin: I'm not going to help you if helping you means covering up something that... that was nothing.

Ruthie: I think my parents already know about you and Zoe. My dad was asking me a bunch of questions about whether or not I thought you we're getting lonely sleeping out there in the garage by yourself. Which means he must have figured out that I know... which means he's just trying to get me to say something.

Martin: Don't worry about it, I'll say something.

Ruthie: But if you say something, then I'm going to get busted, and then dad won't let me go out.

Martin: Oh, not my problem.

Ruthie: Okay, if you don't tell them that I asked you to do me this tiny, little favor in exchange for not telling them about your little misadventure, then I'll... hide your next sleepover.

Martin: There's not going to be another sleepover.

Ruthie: Please, you're a seventeen-year-old and you have your own apartment.

Martin: Not for long, if I don't fix this.

Ruthie: I'll fix it.

Martin: No, just stay out of it.

Ruthie: You can't keep me out of it.

Martin: Yes, I can.

Camden's House - Sam and David's Room

Annie: Boys? What are you doing?

David: We're helping.

Sam: Yeah, helping.

Annie: Helping what?

David: We're helping Savannah open her presents.

Annie: Oh... Lucy and Kevin are supposed to help her open her presents.

Sam: It's not anything good, it's just clothes.

David: Yeah, just clothes.

Annie: I'm not sure that ah, opening the baby presents with out Kevin and Lucy was such a good idea. You see, ah, people go to a lot of trouble to pick out something for the baby, so Lucy and Kevin wanna know who gave her what so they can thank them for it.

Sam: We put the cards in the clothes.

David: And then we wrote notes.

Sam: We like to help. Is there anything else we can do?

David: Tomorrow we're going to make our lunches again.

Annie: Fine, just no ice cream sandwiches.

Annie: (chuckles)

Sam: We hope Lucy and Kevin and the baby live here forever.

David: Yeah, forever.

Happy: (barks)

Annie: Me, too!

Camden's House - Foyer

Ruthie: I want to talk to him first.

Martin: No, I'll talk to him.

Ruthie: No, me.

Door: (knocks)

Martin: Hi, um, I think the baby is sleeping.

Margie: We're not here to see the baby; we're here to meet with Reverend Camden.

Bill: We're Vincent's parents, and thank you so much for getting him over here, even if you had to bribe him with a girlfriend, it's very clever of you.

Ruthie: Put me down.

Margie: Are you Ruthie? She's adorable.

Ruthie: I need to talk to you.

Martin: No, I need to talk to you.

Vincent: You need to talk to him.

Camden's House - Kevin and Lucy's Room

Kevin: I was so wrong, Luce. I'm just feeling incompetent. I'm jealous that you're better with the baby than I am, and I'm tired and I snapped and I feel horrible.

Lucy: That's okay. I forgive you. You may not have meant what you said, but a lot of it was true, I have been showing off, haven't I?

Kevin: I thought you'd need me more, I thought I'd be better at this. I'll get better, I promise.

Lucy: Ah, I know you will. You didn't really have a chance. And I've been around babies all my life. I guess it is just easier for me, and I've been a little bit selfish and a bit of a show off. Sorry.

Kevin: You didn't do anything wrong. I did. Forgive me?

Lucy: Of course, I forgive you. I love you.

Kevin: I love you, too.

Savannah: (cries)

Kevin: I'll get Savannah, then I'll get you some dinner.

Lucy: Just a sec... isn't it great being here? I don't know how we would ever do all this by ourselves.

Kevin: I know your parents have been a big help, especially your mother.

Lucy: But you're still anxious for us to move, aren't you?

Kevin: Only if you are.

Lucy: (sighs)

Lucy: I'm not.

Kevin: All right, we'll move whenever you're ready to move. I won't bring it up again.

Lucy: I think we're going to need some help for the next few months.

Kevin: Months have a way of turning into years.

Lucy: It won't be years, I promise.

Camden's House - Eric's Office

Margie: We feel just terrible about staying for dinner; we certainly hadn't planned to do that.

Bill: But we're glad we did, delicious.

Eric: Vincent mentioned to me that you'd like him to come to church.

Margie: We think it would be a good thing for Vincent.

Bill: And for us... a good thing for the entire family, but mostly for Vincent, of course.

Margie: You see, when Vincent was a baby, just a few weeks old, we moved in with Vincent's grandparents, my mom and dad, until we could save up enough money to buy a house, and so they could help with Vincent.

Bill: And they were so good at taking care of him, we continued to live with them year after year.

Margie: They diapered him, they got up in the middle of the night to give him bottles, they bathed him, fed him, and when he got older, they took him to school and helped him with homework, and it was a wonderful arrangement for everyone.

Bill: But then they just decided they just didn't want to live with us anymore, and they retired and moved to Hawaii last year. They just handed over the house to us lock, stock and barrel and took off.

Margie: And frankly, now we're lost and we'd like someone who knows how to deal with teenage boys.

Bill: Otherwise we're going to have to just quite our jobs and move to Hawaii to live with her parents.

Eric: Or you could just jump in there and start parenting him yourself.

Bill: Honest, we don't know anything about it.

Margie: I'm afraid it's too late.

Eric: You're not moving to Hawaii to avoid being parents. You're going to do this. You can do this, I'll help you. The whole church will help you.

Bill: Well, it seems pretty strong.

Eric: I feel very strongly about this issue, I do. I want you to be a part of Vincent's journey through life. It's not too late, it's never too late.

Bill: (sighs)

Camden's House - Back Porch

Vincent: That, that was a great dinner. My mom doesn't like to cook.

Ruthie: Do you like to cook?

Vincent: No... I mean, I, I used to help my grandmother cook sometimes, but she and my grandfather retired and moved to Hawaii now... so...

Ruthie: I like to help out my mom sometimes. It's kind of fun. So? Did you talk to me dad?

Vincent: I did and uh, you know, I'm thinking I'm gonna go to church. I'm going to go once and try it out anyway. My parents have been trying to force me into it.

Ruthie: Maybe you'll like it.

Vincent: Maybe...

Ruthie: Is there any reason they're trying to force you to go to church?

Vincent: Ah, it's really a boring story. Don't worry nothing bad happened.

Ruthie: Would you like to go out with me sometime, not to church, like on a date? I'd have to ask my parents, of course. Martin could possibly drive us.

Vincent: Not if my parents find out he's having sex with that Zoe chick.

Ruthie: Oh, no, that's not true, that's just a rumor. She just wants everyone to think that. Because...

Ruthie/Vincent: She thinks she'll be more popular.

Ruthie: Yeah...

Vincent: Yeah...

Vincent: I don't know why people can't just stick to kissing. I mean kissing is nice right, there's nothing wrong with just a kiss, right?

Ruthie: Right...

Camden's House - Foyer

Eric: I'll have someone drive Vincent home, I think he's out back talking to Ruthie.

Margie: Thanks for everything.

Bill: We'll see you in church, at least once or twice.

Margie: We'll check it out.

Eric: All right, I think you might like it... might even find it helpful... lots of other moms and dads there to talk to.

Margie: We said we'd give it a shot.

Eric: Yes, you did. I'm sorry didn't mean to push.

Vincent: I'm ready to go. Thanks for everything.

Eric: No problem, anytime. I'll look forward to your review of my sermon this Sunday.

Vincent: I'll look forward to giving it to you.

Bill: Goodnight Reverend Camden.

Margie: Goodnight...

Ruthie: So, what kind of problems does Vincent have?

Eric: Nothing too serious, why?

Martin: I wanted to talk to you before she talks to you.

Eric: Why don't we all talk? Ruthie, did you try to blackmail Martin into getting you a date?

Ruthie: I wanted something that I didn't think I could get for myself, so I tried to take advantage of a certain situation and asked Martin to get Vincent to go out with me.

Martin: In exchange for not telling you something about me.

Eric: The thing about Zoe sleeping over at your apartment...?

Martin: (chuckles)

Eric: Her parents called. Seems she wasn't entirely truthful with them, but...

Martin: Oh, we knew you knew.

Eric: And that's why you're both fessing up?

Martin: No, I'm telling you the truth because I should have told you the truth.

Eric: Oh, because ah, that would have prevented you from feeling like you had to go along with Ruthie.

Martin: No, because I should have told you the truth in the first place. Not that I knew the whole truth. As it turns out, Zoe fell asleep on my couch on purpose so everyone at school would think we slept together so we'd look a lot cooler than I guess we are.

Eric: And...?

Martin: I'd like people to think I'm cool, but not for those reasons.

Ruthie: I saw her leave this morning and tried to take advantage of Martin's situation. And that was wrong, really wrong. I've tried to find a guy to date on my own all year, and I just keep striking out, so I tried to go about it a different way, the wrong way. I'm sorry, I apologize. Sorry I know better, but... I messed up.

Eric: All right, the good news is, you both know right from wrong, and I can trust both of you for that reason. The bad news is, Martin, you're not allowed to entertain women in the apartment until further notice. And Ruthie, you're not allowed to date until further notice, Although, I kind of like Vincent. He can wait a few more weeks.

Ruthie: Fine...

Eric: What?

Ruthie: I'll wait a few more weeks.

Eric: No, no, you're way to happy. What, what do you mean about "fine".

Ruthie: He kissed me.

Eric: He really does need to go to church.

Camden's House - Upstairs Hallway

Annie: Shhh... everybody be quiet, Savannah's sleeping.

Song: "Daughters"

Eric: They're moving.

Song: "Daughters"
