  • Wonderful!

    Eric decides to quit as a minister. Lucy sees Roxanne and Kevin dancing at the Pool Hall and runs away crying. Chandler sees her and they go to the church to talk. When Lucy never shows up, Kevin is worried and gets Roxanne, Simon, and Cecilia to help look for her. Peter, a neighbor and Ruthie's classmate, comes over hoping to see Ruthie. Roxanne begs Kevin to kiss her. He refuses. After he sees that Lucy was with Chandler, he kisses Roxanne out of anger. Roxanne apologizes to Lucy. Simon gets a job working with Cecilia and her father is the boss.

    I loved this episode! Peter, one of my favorite characters, is introduced in this episode. This was an amazing episode! I can't believe Kevin did that! It was really stupid, but I wouldn't have been happy to find my girlfriend with another guy. I can't believe Eric is choosing to leave the church! After all the years he has had that job! This episode gets a 10!moreless
  • Another good episode.

    I thought this was a good episode. It wasn't necessarily anything special but good. I actually liked the way Lucy and Chandler were together, maybe even a little more than her with Kevin. In watching this episode I really wonder why they didn't pair them up. The whole story with Kevin and Lucy was a little bit of a stretch. She sees him dancing with Roxanne and leaves instead of talking to him, but then again that's Lucy. He spends most of the rest of the show looking for her, but taking time out to make sure the neighbor gets home. I would think he would get someone else to do it and keep looking for Lucy, at this point it had been a few hours. A point made in the trivia and quotes section, if Eric quit the church they would have to either buy or move out of their home, I agree that would be a major concern for Annie upon hearing that. I don't remember if that comes up in subsequent episodes or not. Overall this episode was good and in the end everything works out as it usually does on this show, which is probably one of the reasons I like it so much.moreless

    • Adam LaVorgna's Cut Scene
      PARIS: I don't know who you are, but you better not have done anything to my son or I'll...or you'll...who are you?

      ROBBIE: I live down the street with the Camdens. Reverend Camden asked me to walk Peter home because Peter was locked out of his house.

      PETER: (to Robbie) Reverend? I thought he was just a minister. (to his mom) I had no place to go. I know Ruthie Camden so I went down to her house. Plus, she's really cute and I know she's not allowed to see her boyfriend right now.

      PARIS: How did you get locked out?

      PETER: I was outside in the garden working on my science project and you locked me out.

      ROBBIE (quietly to PARIS): He's just a little kid, you can't let your problems with drugs or alchol ruin his life. Get some help.

      PARIS: I don't have a problem with drugs or alchol. Where'd you get an idea like that?

      ROBBIE: We've been calling you all night. You wouldn't answer the phone. I assumed you passed out from something.

      Another scene, with Robbie talking to Eric.

      ROBBIE: Everything turned out fine with that kid, Peter.

      ERIC: I knew it would.

      ROBBIE: Good night.

      ERIC: Good night.

      ROBBIE: Want to know what happened?

      ERIC: Don't need to thanks for handling it.

      Robbie nods, then closes the door. He opens it again.

      ROBBIE: How old a woman is too old for me, would you say?

      ERIC: Can't get me to make that mistake a second time.

      Robbie looks at him.

      ERIC: Mary. The pilot.

      (don't have the rest of the scene)
