Episode Summary

Eric begrudgingly agrees to see a therapist (who offers unsympathetic advice) in order to appease Annie who is at her wits' end with him. Meanwhile, Simon is ecstatic when Cecilia's father agrees to let him see Cecilia, but feels hurt and confused when she starts avoiding him. Roxanne becomes suspicious when a pretty girl seeks council from Chandler. Lastly, Ruthie is shocked to learn that her new upbeat friend Katelyn (guest-star Katelyn Salmont, Rosman's real-life step sister) suffers from cystic fibrosis.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (9)

    • Annie said Simon was 15 years old, but he was 16.

    • If Simon was at school, then why wasn't Ruthie? Shouldn't she have been at school too?

    • Roxanne probably did not get a bigger table because she did not know if Kevin and Lucy were going to show up. As Roxanne stated in the message, she told Kevin that he did not have to call back--just show up.

    • When Kevin and Lucy meet Roxanne, Chandler, Cheryl and her date, it looks like they are sitting at a table for four. Why didn't they get a bigger table for their triple-date?

    • When Roxanne and Chandler are at the church fighting Kevin goes back home. But Roxanne and Chandler were only fighting for like two minutes and then they flash to Kevin in the house with Lucy. But is it possible that Kevin went home got changed and went into the house in that period of time?

    • When Kevin and Lucy come out of the movie theater Kevin gives Lucy his cell phone so she can listen to the message that Roxanne left. After she listens to it they go to the table to meet them, but Lucy never gives the phone back.

    • It is odd that Lucy was able to guess that Cheryl was the woman in Chandler's office from Kevin's little description of her.

    • Did they leave something out? They never mentioned why Cheryl wanted to see Reverend Camden.

    • Wouldn't someone at the barn be supervising Ruthie and Katelyn while they were riding their horses? It's unlikely that anyone would let two pre-teen girls wander off with expensive horses across the barn without any adult supervision.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Chandler: Just so you know...I'm a fairly monogamous guy.

    • Ruthie: I was surprised to hear that you have CF. My dad told me a little about it, but I'd like to more, or really, I'd like to know more about you. I just don't want to pry. I mean, we just met and everything. We don't have to talk about anything you don't want to talk about, but I'm a pretty good listener, if you want to try me.
      Katelyn: I have good days and bad days with my CF. Some days are tough, and the medical treatments are a pain in the butt, but you know what? I get through those days, just so I can enjoy the good days. I have plenty of good days.

    • Randy: (about his daughter Katelyn) She was symptomatic from birth. She had a lot of lung infections and poor weight gain, but she wasn't diagnosed until age two. We just have to be diligent with the meds, and even then, we have the occasional trips to the hospital.
      Eric: What about you? How are you?
      Randy: (points to his chest) When I first found out, I had a lot of numbness right here. Then the numbness wore off, and I felt extreme pain. My heart broke in a million pieces. But over time, the pieces got put back together again, and I'm stronger than ever. I realized that I don't have time for pity, and she doesn't want it, so I spend my days being grateful for the opportunity to know such an inspiring young woman. (looks at Katelyn, smiling and laughing with Ruthie) Just look at her. Isn't she great?

    • Roxanne to Lucy: "Oh, my God I'm you. I'm a crazy woman with no self-esteem, I'm you!"

      Kevin to Annie: "I'm going home. Evidently Roxanne has turned into Lucy, and if I'm going to deal with Lucyness in my life twenty-four hours a day, I'm going to need my rest. Do you have any advice?"

      Lucy to Kevin and Chandler: "She left."

      Kevin to Lucy: "What happened?"

      Lucy to Kevin and Chandler: "She thinks she's me. And thinking that she's me horrifies her. So she left."
