Camden's House - Attic Room

Ruthie: "Like a gold ring on a pig's snout. It's a beautiful woman who shows now discretion". Forgive me Lord for I have sinned. "And then someone beget someone else and then someone else begat..." where's all the good stuff when you need it? Give us this day our daily bread... and forgive us... no, forgive me. Let them forgive me. "It is better to live in the corner of the house than in the house-top with a quarrelsome wife". There's got to be something in here somewhere that would cover the situation.

Eric: Hey, what's Ruthie going to have?

Sam: Nothing.

David: We didn't ask her.

Eric: Why did you go all the way up two flights of stairs if you weren't going to ask her?

David: She was having church.

Sam: She was saying prayers.

David: And reading the bible.

Eric: Not your mom... Ruthie? Did you ask Ruthie what she wanted for a snack?

David: Really Dad, Ruthie is busy with God stuff.

Eric: Ruthie is reading her bible and... saying prayers? Maybe I'll just go up and see if I can help her with that.

David: If a cracker is the body of Christ... I wonder what a cookie is.

Ruthie: Because of this I will weep and wail. I go about bear foot and naked. I will howl like a jackal and moan like an owl.

Camden's House

T-Bone: Good morning.

Eric: Good morning. Annie said to tell you that we're out of Cheerios. But if you want eggs or bacon and toast you're more than welcome to make anything you want.

T-Bone: Oh... no. Thanks anyway. I... got to be going. I actually... want to catch the early bus and get to the library.

Eric: Hang on just a second. Do you have any idea what's going on with Ruthie?

T-Bone: Ruthie?

Eric: Your girlfriend... my daughter.

T-Bone: Uh... I haven't' seen her this morning. I have no idea what's going on with her. No idea... whatsoever... no.

Eric: That's interesting.

T-Bone: Is it?

Eric: I just haven't seen you two talking or making out... for... almost a week now. Why is that?

T-Bone: It's really kind of personal.

Eric: Yeah. Yeah that's how it felt when I kept seeing you kissing my daughter. Really kind of personal.

T-Bone: I'm just not comfortable discussing this with you. You know... the father, the Reverend... the landlord.

Eric: And yet you have no trouble with the actual making out.

T-Bone: No! I wasn't comfortable making out in front of you either but... I have very little to say about that. I have very little to say about our current situation.

Eric: What happened? Just tell me. 'Cause someone is going to tell me eventually. So you might as well make it you.

T-Bone: I can't. Ruthie... she asked me not to.

Eric: You agreed not to?

T-Bone: Oh... well I don't know if I agreed exactly but... it's just... it wouldn't be right. It's a private matter.

Eric: Have you not learned there are no private matters in this household?

T-Bone: No? Is that true?

Eric: It's completely true. And you know sometimes it's... it's nice to get the opportunity to get your side of the story out there... first. you know. you might want to make me understand your point of view before I hear the other side of the story from my daughter whom I dearly love.

T-Bone: Okay. Honestly I... I don't think it's a good idea. I don't think it's a good idea for us to be talking.

Eric: Why is that?

T-Bone: 'Cause she is your daughter. Whom you dearly love. Dearly, dearly love. And... I just hope you remember that. Even in your darkest hour. Meaning yours and Ruthie's darkest hour. I wasn't referring to your health. And... how are you by the way? Feeling... strong?

Eric: What?

T-Bone: All I'm trying to say is I know how much you love Ruthie and... you'll get through this. She'll get through this. I'll get through this. We all will. God willing. Even Mrs. Camden. goodbye.

Eric: God willing.

T-Bone: Yes.

Eric: God.

T-Bone: It's just a saying.

Eric: It's a religious saying.

T-Bone: Some.

Eric: Something is going on here and I'm going to get to the bottom of it.

T-Bone: There... is a bottom to this.

Eric: Look... Theodore... I love my daughter but... I really care about you a lot son.

T-Bone: Thank you. But... I'm smart enough to know that feelings... don't always last. And if that's the case here... I completely understand. Goodbye.

Eric: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait! Here... with you and me? or with you and Ruthie? Did you two break up?

T-Bone: Technically we're taking a break. I don't think it's an actual break-up. It will probably depend on you. You and Mrs. Camden. and anyone else who gets a vote.

Eric: Why are you taking a break? Your idea or her idea?

T-Bone: That's something you're going to have to ask Ruthie. I'm sorry. I wish I could tell you but... I can't. I just can't.

Eric: Why not?

Ruthie: Dad? What are you doing?

Eric: Well I was ah... trying to talk to him.

Ruthie: And why would that be?

Eric: 'Cause he lives here you know I thought he might have done something he wanted to talk to me about. Have you done anything with him that you want to talk to me about?

Ruthie: No. But even if I had... I'm sure you recall the verse in the New Testament. "Forgive him... for he knows not what he do". Or did... or does. My point being we should all forgive. I mean that's what we should all do... forgive... no matter what... right? Not that he has done anything to be forgiven for... nor do I.

Eric: It's... "Forgive them... they know not what they do".

Ruthie: And... what part of the bible is that from?

Eric: It's from... the new part. It's Christ giving forgiveness to those who are about to betray Him.

Ruthie: I thought so. I thought that was referring to Judas.

Eric: No. It refers to... are you taking some sort of course on religion?

Ruthie: No. I'm just studying on my own.

Eric: When did you start doing that?

Ruthie: I don't know.

Eric: Recently... in the past week or so?

Ruthie: I've always been interested in religion, Dad. I mean how can I not be when... you're my dad.

Eric: You've become more interested in the past week?

Ruthie: I guess.

Eric: Have you and T-Bone... the two of you... you... you haven't... have you? You... are you...?

Ruthie: Having sex? God no! No, we're definitely not having sex. Nor will we have sex or will we ever have sex... until and unless we're married.

Eric: Oh. I see.

Ruthie: Why would you think we'd had sex? Just because I'm interested in spiritual matters?

Eric: Yes. Did you two get married?

Ruthie: Dad come on!

Eric: Well... you know when I went upstairs last night to see if you wanted a snack when I thought you were studying and I heard your reading from the bible and praying.

Ruthie: Well why didn't you join me?

Eric: I don't know. You seemed so focused on what you were doing that I just left. Are you and T-Bone together or not together? Or taking a break from being together?

Ruthie: The third one. We're just going to see how it goes.

Eric: Ruthie... are you okay?

Ruthie: I'm fine. My life is changing. It's constantly changing. Sometimes things change for the good and sometimes things change for the bad. Sometimes I don't know which it is... good or bad. But... "to everything there is a season". Ecclesiastes. But you know that. Well... bye Dad. I love you.

Ruthie: If you need me to help the boys with their homework or to do anything around the house... all you have to do is ask. Hey I'm here to serve. Have a blessed day.

Annie: What was that?

Eric: Where are the boys?

Annie: I sent them back upstairs to look for some more subjects for their paper-mâché projects.

Eric: I couldn't get an answer out of any of them. Not the twins or T-Bone or Ruthie. They're all over the place.

Annie: No, no. you got an answer. We got the answer that we've been looking for. They're not having sex. And I believe her I do.

Eric: Then what else has made her so suddenly religious.

Annie: Look Lucy got interested in religion back in high school right? And she wasn't doing anything wrong.

Eric: No, nothing that we know about.

Annie: Are we going to let Ruthie's reading the bible and praying this suspicious that she's doing something bad?

Eric: Yes.

Annie: I know. it's terrible isn't it?

Eric: What else could it be?

Annie: I don't know. you don't think they got drunk or... experimented with drugs or something like that do you? They both came home not feeling well last weekend.

Eric: I don't think Ruthie was drunk or high do you?

Annie: I don't think so. But something was wrong that night and something has been wrong all week. You don't want to go to Lucy's and see if they found out anything do you? I'll stay with the boys.

Lucy: Morning.

Kevin: Good morning.

Eric: Good morning.

Annie: Hi Savannah.

Lucy: Or maybe you know it's not such a good morning. Ruthie called me last night and asked me if she could come to my Teen Class.

Kevin: I don't get it.

Lucy: She's had an open invitation to join my Teen Class ever since it's been in existence. And she's never been to it.

Kevin: Is Sandy still teaching that class?

Lucy: Sandy does not teach it. She's watching me teach.

Eric: Have you tried just... talking to Ruthie?

Lucy: Hello... yes of course I tried talking to Ruthie. For a week now I can't get a confession out of her.

Annie: Why can't Protestants confess? I mean why do the Catholics have to have a franchise on that?

Eric: Well dear, if Ruthie confessed to me or Lucy... we couldn't tell you what it is that she confessed.

Annie: That's probably why priests don't marry.

Eric: Why?

Annie: You think I couldn't get Ruthie's confession out of you?

Kevin: Oh wait a minute. Wait just a minute. No.

Annie: Kevin!

Lucy: Ditto.

Kevin: Well... it's just that if a criminal is going to get religion he usually does it between the guilty verdict and the sentencing.


Sandy: Hi Lou.

Lucy: Hey... Sandy. I am so glad you got down here early.

Sandy: Well I'm so glad that my dad could take Aaron today so I could.

Lucy: How is your dad?

Sandy: He's sober and happy and working hard. And he gets along better with Martin's dad than me and Martin.

Lucy: Well that's good I... I guess.

Sandy: Yeah they started that little lawn service business. And they're actually making money so they hired more people to work for them so they took the day off to baby sit. Isn't that nice?

Lucy: Very nice.

Sandy: Aaron loves him. And he's actually really good with babies. Of course he's child-like, my dad.

Lucy: But not too child-like to baby-sit?

Sandy: You know something about my dad? Is that what you want to talk to me about?

Lucy: Oh no, no, no, no. I didn't mean to alarm you. I just wanted to have lunch and talk.

Sandy: No one wants to just have lunch and talk. What's going on? Martin didn't find out about my date last weekend did he?

Lucy: No. But... how did it go?

Sandy: Let's just say it's still going. He's called me every night this week.

Lucy: Ohh... well that's good, I guess. I... I don't know. anyway I know this may sound silly but... we are a little concerned about Ruthie and T-Bone. Mostly Ruthie... you know Kevin my dad and my mom and me.

Sandy: Oh.

Lucy: Well we were wondering if you know... maybe she called you.

Sandy: Called me?

Lucy: Yeah. I guess we're all really desperate to find out if she confided one someone that I know it's a along shot. But I... thought maybe you know...!

Sandy: Yeah she called me.

Lucy: What? Ruthie called you? But... but you don't even... I mean she likes you... what did she call you about if you don't mind telling me?

Sandy: I don't mind. Just... stuff.

Lucy: Do you mind telling me what stuff?

Sandy: She wanted to know if I told my parents when I was getting in trouble in High School or if they found out. Things like that. The same questions I got from all the girls in your class. And I told her that class is a really safe place for her to talk to other young women that are struggling with the challenges of just... growing up. So she said she would ask you about coming to class.

Lucy: What could she have done?

Sandy: I don't know.

Lucy: Are you sure?

Sandy: Lucy...

Lucy: You do know!!

Sandy: Please don't ask me I can't say anything. She's going to come to class and she can tell you.

Lucy: Right... right in front of everyone?

Sandy: Well there's a reason for that.

Lucy: A reason like?

Sandy: Sometimes if you have bad news it's easier to say it in front of other people. Or a public place... especially when you don't know what the reaction is going to be.

Lucy: She told you whatever it is in private.

Sandy: You know what I mean. Sometimes when a person has done something that they're not proud of... it's easier to talk to someone else who's done something they're not proud of. Like me.

Lucy: What could Ruthie have done that she's not proud of?

Sandy: I can't. I promised.

Lucy: Well she obviously wants me to know.

New Apartment

Mac: (Knock on door) Who is it?

Kevin: It's me!

Mac: You loser. You know that's not your baby!

Kevin: Mac?

Mac: Yeah.

Kevin: Let me in?

Mac: Isn't the door unlocked? Oh... it's the other guy you moron. You think that forcing a guy in a paternity test is gonna make him like you any better? Geez...

Kevin: Will you let me in?

Mac: Hi Kevin.

Kevin: Hi yourself. What's going on in here?

Mac: I'm just studying for a test.

Kevin: Not a paternity test I hope.

Mac: No. Just World Literature.

Kevin: You're watching TV.

Mac: I'm taking a little break. The test is at three.

Kevin: I'll only be a minute.

Mac: Well all right. I don't guess you're gonna want to see the end of that show I was watching do you? I'm just fascinated by the whole human drama. Why people would go on TV and air their dirty laundry. I just... I don't get it.

Kevin: Neither do I. Nor do I get why people like you pay to watch them.

Mac: It's just that it's a real life study in human behavior.

Kevin: Speaking of which... what's going on with Ruthie and T-Bone?

Mac: Speaking of which... we weren't speaking of which, were we? I... I know I wasn't.

Kevin: I knew you'd know something.

Mac: Did I mention that I have a test today in World Literature at three o'clock. That's literature from all over the world. I've had so much world literature to read from all over the world that I haven't had time to do anything else. I haven't seen Ruthie or T-Bone in... a long time. Very long time.

Kevin: Like a week?

Mac: Something like that.

Kevin: Why don't we both sit down?

Mac: I... I wish I could. I have to study. Okay.

Kevin: So... was it a week ago that you last saw T-Bone?

Mac: Almost that. I... I gave him a ride home from the Promenade last weekend.

Kevin: He wasn't feeling well was he?

Mac: Let me see ah... yes you're right. He wasn't feeling well. How's he doing now?

Kevin: He's fine.

Mac: Glad to hear it.

Kevin: What would you know about T-Bone and Ruthie that you wouldn't want to tell me?

Mac: See... that's... that's funny that you say that because I was reading that the properly phrased question contains the answer.

Kevin: Don't give me any of your world literature garbage. Just answer the question.

Mac: You're not a police officer. If you were I'd have to answer you. But you're just a friend. And Ruthie is my friend too. And so is T-Bone. In face T-Bone got me my job. And that job pays my rent. And he could possibly get me out of that job if he chose to do so. I think we just need to leave well enough alone and let these two young love birds... fly wherever they want to fly.

Kevin: What the heck does that mean?

Mac: It means that I can't tell you. It means that it's none of my business. It means that if they want to make it your business... it's up to them.

Kevin: Did... did T-Bone already tell you not to tell me?

Mac: Not only did they tell me not to tell you... I promised... on my mother's grave.

Kevin: Okay well I can respect that. Then again your mother's not dead so I think there's a little room for a compromise here. What if I guess?

Mac: No, no. Don't... don't do that. Don't guess.

Kevin: Drugs?

Mac: No.

Kevin: Alcohol?

Mac: No but please don't do this.

Kevin: Sex?

Mac: That's... that's old news. She had sex in Scotland and Mrs. Camden knows it and she's okay with that.

Kevin: That was a lie. Ruthie didn't do anything in Scotland. And Mrs. Camden would never be okay with it.

Mac: Really? I guess I misunderstood.

Kevin: Tell me what you know.

Mac: I can't.

Camden's House

David: Can we stop now?

Sam: I'm hungry.

Annie: Oh no, no, no. Keep talking. What else did you see?

David: That's it.

Annie: Okay, okay... so what do we have so far? Okay T-Bone and Ruthie keep sneaking around late at night talking. But they're not making out.

Both: Check.

Annie: And they're not arguing?

Both: Check.

Annie: But he keeps saying... tell them.

Both: Check.

Annie: What would they tell us? What are they hiding? Think boys, think! You must know something else. You must have heard something else.

David: Well maybe there is this one thing.

Annie: Yeah?

David: They don't know we know.

Annie: I see.

David: Can you bake us some chocolate chip cookies?


Eric: Hello Margaret.

Margaret: Jane!

Eric: Hello Jane.

Jane: Hi Rev.

Margaret: Honestly we would have told you but we couldn't.

Eric: Told me what?

Jane: He doesn't know anything.

Margaret: He's not here for the burgers.

Eric: No I'm not. And you do know something... obviously.

Margaret: I told her not to do it.

Jane: Yeah... we both did.

Margaret: No we both didn't.

Jane: Okay well maybe I didn't. But it was her decision. Well hers and T-Bone's. Oh... you really don't know anything?

Margaret: Then... we should not be the ones to tell you.

Eric: Why not? Someone is going to tell me.

Margaret: Well it's not going to be us. I don't think we want to take responsibility for telling you something that might... that might kill you.

Jane: Oh come on. It's not that serious.

Margaret: Maybe not to you. But these are God fearing people.

Jane: Like God cares about that.

Margaret: I don't know.

Jane: We didn't say that we wouldn't tell anyone.

Eric: Please. Look I promise I won't die... from whatever it is. Promise.


Jane: I can't believe you told him. You know you didn't have to tell him.

Margaret: You're the one who actually said the word... tattoo.

Jane: I said tiny tattoo.

Margaret: So... you told the truth and lied all at the same time. He is going to see it and it's not tiny.

Jane: He said he wouldn't say anything. He promised. So... how is he going to see it? she's not going to show it to him. And even if she does... it's just a tattoo. I don't know what the big deal is. So she has a tattoo? If that's the worse thing she ever does then they're lucky.

Margaret: Yeah. If. But if that tattoo leads to her smoking cigarettes and pot and drinking... then they're not so lucky.

Jane: Okay. Tattoos do not lead to smoking and drinking. In fact it's usually the other way around. Drinking and smoking lead to tattoos. I can't believe she did something that stupid cold stone sober.

Margaret: You told her where to get it done.

Jane: I didn't know she'd get what she got where she got it. I thought she'd start out small.

Margaret: Oh... here comes Mac. Do not tell we told Reverend Camden. Do not tell anyone... please!

Jane: Be... cause...?

Margaret: Because we don't want him to think that we're the kind of people who tell secrets. And we don't want him to tell Ruthie and T-Bone that we told on them.

Mac: Hey roomies.

Margaret: Hi.

Jane: Hi. We're working.

Mac: I'll have... a cheeseburger and a vanilla shake.

Jane: Lay some yellow on a dead cow!

Margaret: And shake up Snow White!!!

Mac: You guys are just like three feet away. why do you have to scream like that?

Margaret: They make us... and it's fun. I like to scream.

Mac: Oh well... all right.

Jane: You can pay for this right?

Mac: Yes I can pay.

Margaret: So how did your big test go?

Mac: Pretty good, I think... considering.

Jane: Considering what? You don't know anything about world literature?

Mac: No, I do. I mean considering Kevin Kinkirk former cop came snooping around trying to figure out what Ruthie and T-Bone are up to.

Margaret: Well did you tell him?

Mac: No. Why... did he come by here?

Margaret: No. The Reverend came by here. We didn't tell him anything.

Mac: Well good. I think Ruthie should be the one to tell them.

Jane: Absolutely.

Sandy: Hey guys... I just want to grab a burger before I hit the road.

Mac: Did you see Lucy today?

Sandy: Why do you want to know?

Jane: Oh just curious. Have you talked to Ruthie lately?

Sandy: Have you talked to Ruthie lately? Okay, I didn't say anything.

Mac: Me neither.

Both girls: Me neither.

Kinkirk's House

Lucy: Hi. Hello Miss cutie-pie.

Savannah: Hi.

Kevin: How'd things go with Sandy?

Lucy: How did things go with Mac?

Both: I know.

Lucy: I can't believe Ruthie did that! Or T-Bone. I mean how stupid can you get? Like they're never going to be with another person?

Kevin: I'm relieved it wasn't anything worse.

Lucy: Please... Kevin! this could put dad over the edge... the big edge!!! The final edge.

Kevin: Oh come on. He knew something was up. He knew she did something he wasn't going to like. It's just a tattoo.

Lucy: Of a guy's name!

Kevin: Like yours is any better?

Lucy: Please don't ever say that out loud again! We can't ever, ever let him know or my Mom know. They can't.

Kevin: Will you stop panicking? You're an adult. It's your body. You can do whatever you want with it. you're a grown woman with a baby.

Lucy: Yeah well so is Mary and they don't know about her tattoo either!

Kevin: What about Simon's tattoo?

Lucy: No!

Kevin: Matt's?

Lucy: No!

Kevin: Does Ruthie know?

Lucy: Of course not! Do you think we want to be a bad influence on her?

Kevin: She's never seen any of your tattoos and neither have your parents?

Lucy: No! They would kill us! And it will kill Dad. He can't even know about this.

Camden's House

Eric: Guess it took a little while to get the information out of the boys huh?

Annie: Oh... they don't know anything.

Eric: No... you didn't.

Annie: All right. They know plenty. And now I know.

Eric: Yeah so do I.

Annie: Jane and Margaret? I... I imagine Lucy found out.

Eric: Kevin too probably.

Annie: Young people aren't good at keeping these kinds of secrets.

Eric: Do you think Ruthie would tell us herself?

Annie: Hard to tell.

Eric: T-Bone?

Annie: Not unless Ruthie lets him.

Eric: I can't believe it took us this long to figure this out.

Annie: She just looks so young.

Eric: I know but she's not.

Annie: The boys say it's really big.

Eric: And it's his name?

Annie: Right across her backside. I want to cry. No, I... I did cry. All afternoon.

Eric: I wonder how Ruthie feels.

Annie: I don't know. But she feels... like the others did about us. I mean she thinks we're going to kill her. She's afraid of us.

Eric: Yeah. So afraid that she's suddenly turned religious?

Annie: No. I don't think it's a good idea to get someone into religion out of fear... do you?

Eric: No. I don't like any decision made out of fear. So... what are we going to do? Same thing we did with the others?

Annie: I guess we can try.

Eric: It's going to be a little tricky. But I think if we can get passed the first few weeks we should be okay.

Annie: That's a big if... lots of people are involved. You don't think one of them is going to tell her that they told us?

Eric: And admit that they're the snitch... nah you think?

Annie: That's right. Not wanting to be the snitch is a powerful incentive. Of course we didn't have this problem with the others. I don't know if the others told anyone expect for each other of course. And the others like their tattoos. I don't know if Ruthie likes hers.

Eric: Well... maybe... maybe it's time to alter the course of Camden tattoo history. Maybe we should try another way.

Annie: Another way? Like what?

Eric: Maybe we should flush them all out.

Annie: Oh? After all these years?

Eric: We could.

Annie: Could we?

Eric: It might be worth a try.

Annie: It's just not as fun as it used to be. You remember when Matt all of a sudden started wearing socks... all of the time?

Eric: He still wears socks... all the time when he's around us. I don't know what he thinks we'd do to him at his age.

Annie: And Mary can't wear backless dresses.

Eric: Lucy can't wear low pants. And Simon can't wear short sleeved shirts. Not letting them know that we know... has... certainly been rewarding at times.

Annie: Why would all of our children get tattoos?

Eric: Preacher's kids?

Annie: Yeah but... other kids do it too.

Eric: And how many other parents would let their silence dictate their children's clothing choices for so many years?

Annie: I hate tattoos. I love our children. All of our tattooed children. I love Ruthie. And I love that T-Bone, I do.

Eric: Now don't be sad. Maybe we can still have some fun with this.

Annie: You think your heart is up to it?

Eric: Absolutely.

Camden's House

Eric: Don't let me interrupt. Just... getting a cup of tea.

T-Bone: Maybe I'll just let you two talk.

Eric: Oh please don't leave. T-Bone... you know anything about the Beatitudes?

T-Bone: No. I don't believe I do. But... I don't know anything about calculus either... and I've got a big test tomorrow. So... I'm going to say goodnight now. Goodnight.

Eric: Fine young man that T-Bone.

Ruthie: Yes.

Eric: Yeah. I... know that you two are having some kind of misunderstanding... but we like him just so you know.

Ruthie: I like him. I never said I didn't like him.

Eric: Oh good. Then maybe the two of you can work something out.

Ruthie: Maybe.

Eric: Anything I can do to... help that along?

Ruthie: Not that I know of.

Eric: It's awfully uncomfortable being in a house where two teenagers who are... taking a break. I know you're interested in forgiveness. Are you also interested in forgiving?

Ruthie: You know I've got a calculus test tomorrow too. And it's getting late.

Eric: Late? Oh come on. The night is young.

Ruthie: Okay. Well...

Eric: What's your favorite part of the Bible?

Ruthie: I don't know. But the writers seem to be very interested in begetting.

Eric: Yes... there's certainly a lot of that back then and even now.

Ruthie: Dad... I told you. T-Bone and I aren't... begetting.

Eric: I... I understand that. But sometimes it's so difficult to tell a parent something if you don't think that parent will approve.

Ruthie: You're not trying to take my interest in religion and use it against me are you?

Eric: Why would I do that?

Ruthie: I don't know. Why are you doing that?

Eric: I just don't want you to come to religion out of fear.

Ruthie: And what would I be afraid of?

Eric: I don't know.

Ruthie: I'm not afraid of anything.

Eric: All right.

Ruthie: I'm not.

Eric: It sees... thee doust protest too much.

Ruthie: That guy who's supposed to kill his son.

Eric: Shakespeare.

Ruthie: He was in the Bible?

Eric: Just tell me.

Ruthie: I don't have anything to tell you. Do you have something to tell me?

Kinkirk House

Annie: So you found out nothing?

Lucy: You know I really don't want to know anything. Yeah, I think we should just let it go. If she wants to tell us she'll tell us. Otherwise we just might be forcing her to lie about whatever is going on.

Annie: You think?

Kevin: Or it might force us to tell the truth.

Annie: Us?

Lucy: Oh... not us. Them... you know Ruthie and T-Bone.

Kevin: Them, too.

Annie: Okay Luce, maybe you're right. Maybe we should just let it go. Maybe it's just one of those things that we're not going to know. Parents don't have to know everything about their kids. As much as we all think that we do.

Lucy: Yeah. Just one of those things.

Annie: That we're never going to know.

Lucy: That we're never going to know.

Annie: Teenagers huh?

Lucy: Yeah... teenagers.

Annie: Good night.

Kevin: 'Night, Mom. Thanks for the brownies.

Annie: Oh you're welcome. And Luce... thanks for just being you. You've always been such a good girl. I love you.

Lucy: Ohh... She knows!

Kevin: About what?

Lucy: About Ruthie and T-Bone. She knows and she's testing us to know if we know and if we'll tell her.

Kevin: So... why don't we tell her?

Lucy: Because she didn't tell us that she knows.

Kevin: Maybe if she knows about them she knows about you and your brothers and sisters.

Lucy: No she doesn't. We're all a lot smarter than Ruthie.

Kevin: Ruthie is pretty smart.

Lucy: Pretty smart? She has a tattoo that says T-Bone.

Kevin: Why is that worse than flowers across your butt?

Lucy: I told you I was just trying to fit in when I moved to New York.

Kevin: Yeah. Fit in with your dope smoking wino future in-laws.

Lucy: Yeah. I'd never been cool. I just wanted to be cool and I thought that if I got a tattoo I'd be cool. I'd have it taken off but I'd have to a foreign country or word would get out all over town. I mean do you think I enjoy having to hide my backside every time I have to bend over outside of this house?

Kevin: Then stop hiding it. and don't put Ruthie in the same position you and your brothers and sisters are in. Never mind I'll do it. I'm going to tell your dad what I know about Ruthie and T-Bone.

Lucy: I don't think so!!

Kevin: I think so. I'm going to tell him you have a tattoo too and so does everybody else in the family. And if he has a problem with that he's going to get over it because it's not healthy living like this.

Lucy: No,. no, no, no, no, no, no, wait, wait! Don't do anything stupid. Don't do anything you're going to regret.

Kevin: I didn't. I don't have a tattoo.

Lucy: Do you know how upset Matt Mary and Simon would be if you told on them after all of these years?

Kevin: Maybe they'll be relieved.

Lucy: Maybe they won't.

Kevin: Fine. I'll just rat on you then.

Lucy: Nooo... Kevin!

Kevin: Are you crying I'm going to tell your dad you have a tattoo? When you got the tattoo didn't you know it was a mistake?

Lucy: Yes.

Camden's House

Annie: She's in the bathroom. How's it going?

Eric: The others I was angry with, they were so determined to sneak around and I felt totally justified in what we were doing. But Ruthie... she's...

Annie: Ruthie... I know.

Ruthie: We have something to tell you.

Margaret, Mac, Jane, Sandy: We have something to tell you.

Kevin: Lucy has something to tell you.

Ruthie: Ah! You knew?!!

Camden's House

Ruthie: I can't believe that not one of you could just keep a stupid secret for just one week. And the twins? How many hours did you spend with them making that apple before they gave in?

Annie: Don't blame them.

Ruthie: I'm not blaming them I'm blaming... everyone else. And you're going to have to get a lot better at this if you're going to be a minister. 'Cause people are going to tell you their secrets. And you can't just go running off to everyone's sister and spill your guts. And you... how could you put her in that position? How could you ask her that? Why didn't you ask me?

Lucy: I tried.

Ruthie: You didn't try very hard. And you told Kevin. Why would you do that?

Kevin: I paid him.

Ruthie: You paid him?

Kevin: Twenty bucks.

Ruthie: Oh... like you're any better. And don't even tell me that you told me not to do it. it's too late. I did it. Oh and thanks for the info on where to get a tattoo when I'm underage.

Jane: There's an age?

Ruthie: There is. You're supposed to be eighteen.

Jane: Oh. I didn't know.

Ruthie: Well maybe you should have known.

T-Bone: This is all my fault. I should have been stronger. I just didn't know that you were going to go... well... crazy.

Ruthie: Well I did. And I'm not happy about it. Now I have to live with this stupid thing for the rest of my life. Let go of me.

Kevin: I can't. You sister has something she wants to tell you.

Lucy: Not just to you... Mom and Dad. Ohh... you knew?!!

Ruthie: You have a tattoo?

Annie: She came back from New York with it.

Lucy: How did you know?

Eric: You hold your shirt down every time you bend over. Suspicious behavior led to... suspicions confirmed.

Lucy: What else do you know?

Mac: Wow this is better than I ever had. I'm sorry.

Annie: What else do we know? Well we know that children often don't do what you tell them to do.

Eric: And we can't always keep you from making bad decisions.

Lucy: So you just let us live with the guilt and the shame and that fear that you'd find out?

Eric: Pretty much... yeah.

Annie: I'm sorry. Did you say us? Let us live?

Kevin: (Clears throat)

Lucy: Us... Ruthie and me.

Annie: Oh... okay.

Eric: I think this is all we'd like to say on the subject of tattoos for one evening. It's late and I'm tired and I want to go to bed now. Goodnight.

Annie: Goodnight.

All: Goodnight.

Ruthie: You couldn't have told me?

Lucy: You couldn't have told me?

Kevin: You want to tell her anything else?

Lucy: No... I don't. I just want to go home. Goodnight.

Mac: Wait... uh... I can't keep this.

Jane: Well I guess we should be going too.

Margaret: Good night.

Mac: I'm sorry.

Ruthie: Whatever.

Sandy: You were right... about not being able to keep a secret. I apologize.

Ruthie: I knew you would tell when I told you. And I didn't really want to go to that class. I just wanted someone around when I told Lucy. And I wanted Lucy to tell Kevin and Mom and Dad... so that I wouldn't have to. And I just didn't know that the whole world was going to pitch in. So... I apologize. I know that you think I'm still interested in Martin and that I'm jealous of you or something. But I'm not I'm really not. And I wish I could have an interest in spiritual matters like you. And I like you and I like Mac and Margaret and Jane. And... I hate this tattoo.

Sandy: Okay. Just don't hate yourself.

Ruthie: It's hard not to.

Sandy: I've been there. And Ruthie... everyone finds their own way in their own time when it comes to religion. And you're surrounded by people who would love to talk to you about spiritual matters.

Ruthie: I said I wish I could have a real interest in spiritual matters. Right now I don't.

Sandy: I get it. I didn't mean to push. But if you ever... goodnight. Good night T-Bone.

T-Bone: I love you.

Ruthie: Thanks. I love you too.

T-Bone: Really?

Ruthie: I have to. I have your name permanently engraved on my body.

T-Bone: And I have your...

Ruthie: My initials... hidden on your ankle. Lucy has a tattoo?

T-Bone: People do crazy things when they're in love.

Ruthie: I can't believe she actually thought she'd spend the rest of her life with that idiot she was engaged to.

T-Bone: I hope no one ever says that about me.

Ruthie: We're not engaged.

T-Bone: It's... not an engagement right. It's a... promise... to be engaged. Or something like that.

Ruthie: It's beautiful.

T-Bone: So are you.

Camden's House - Eric and Annie's Room

Eric: You think there's any chance that this total experience with the tattoo kind of pulled Ruthie into a more spiritual life?

Annie: Oh Eric... no.

Eric: Never doubt that she's not coming to us out of fear. She's seen that no one is going to die from a tattoo.

Annie: No. No!

Eric: Well maybe... maybe one day.

Annie: Well maybe some day but not right now.

Eric: Well thanks for leaving us Matt and Mary and Simon to toy with.

Annie: Yeah. Maybe if they come home more often... we'll let them off the hook.

Annie/Eric: Goodnight.
