    By VGFreak8, Aug 07, 2007

    Ruthie sees Vincent at school with another girl, Margo. Margo makes fun of Ruthie and says that the jacket that Ruthie's wearing used to be hers. Ruthie finds Zoe in the bathroom and they confide in each other and Ruthie finds out that Zoe is poor and her family can't afford food. Martin wants to break up with Zoe. David fakes sick and gets everything he wants and Sam is jealous. Kevin misses being intimate with Lucy. Vincent breaks up with Margo and gets Ruthie back.

    This was a great episode! There are so many people who need help. We should all help one another. I hated how Annie was acting around David and Sam. It really looked like she favored David over Sam. I never really liked Zoe, but her story is sad. This episode gets a 9.5!moreless

    Vincent has a new girlfriend...And you know what that means! That means trouble is brewing and there is gonna be a cat fight. Margo (Vincents girlfriend) tells her that Ruthie is wearing secondhand clothes and that it used to be her jacket and that she is poor and can't buy nice things. Ruthie goes home and throws the jacket in the garbage. She realizes that isn't right so she takes it out of the trash after talking to Vincent and him saying that he only broke up with her cause his parents made him because they were getting to close. She wore the jacket to prove a point the next day at school and Margo confesses that the only reason that she threw the jacket away was because her mother had given it to her and she didn't want to be reminded of her mother anymore because she had passed away a year ago from cancer. She asks for the jacket back and Ruthie agrees. Martins girlfriend is getting to clingy so Martin feels like he has to break up with her because she is acting stuck up and not good enough for him and he can't take it anymore. At the end of the episode she comes clean and says she wishes that she was rich and she had everything that rich people do but the truth is she is poor and her parents don't make enough so some days she goes without eating and she was ashamed of that. Zoe's dad goes to Reverend Camden and asks to be put on foodstamps because he hates that his family is starving. He hates it that he even has to ask this cause he wants to provide for his family but can't. End of episode.moreless

    Boring, ludicrous, absurd. An insult to the viewers, definitely. And an insult to anybody who really had to struggle with the issues of hunger.

    By panachat, Sep 07, 2005

    Apparently people in Glen Oak (the Camdens mythical base of operations) can't afford to buy food. But they can afford to buy trendy clothes, and makeup. But they're poor, and SIR, they're hungry. However, they really only want to improve their social standing and get good grades. It looks as if poor hungry people are poor and hungry simply because they don't have their priorities straight, are lazy or are just too proud to accept handouts. I would rather watch Kevin and Lucy struggle over their imaginary sex life and babbling baby talk at each other than suffer through the portrayal of poor people as lazy and whiny idiots too shallow to figure out what their priorities should be.

    This is one of the stupidest episodes I have seen. I don't whether to laugh or cry.
