Reverend Eric Camden
If Lucy's real age was celebrated in the series (she was 12 in the pilot), she would have been barely 21 when she gave birth to her first daughter, Savannah. However, her age was advanced a few years.
Martin makes a comment to Simon and Mac near the end of the episode where he implies that he does not want children, which would explain his behavior toward pregnant Sandy in Season 10. This is also the first time we see Ruthie outwardly express her romantic feelings for Martin.
When Martin and the twins were shopping together did anyone notice when one of the twins called Martin by the real actor's name "Tyler"? I was just wondering who else caught that? Very bad editing in that part of the episode.
Response:They sung the song to all of Eric and Annie's kids so it's a tradition for that generation.
Response to Kevin opening the elevator door: The door was almost fixed, and so Kevin was able to pry the door open slightly. Before, the door was completely broken so Lucy didn't have the option.
Nitpick: When Annie had the twins, Matt, Mary, Lucy, Simon and Ruthie sang to her a song that had always been sung to each of the kids as they were born. Why not carry on the tradition with Lucy and Savannah?
In the store, when the twins were trying to pick out something for the baby, why would they be there all alone? Where were Martin and Mac?
How did Kevin pry the elevator door open to announce that the baby was born and he helped? And if the opening in the elevator's ceiling was big enough for Kevin to jump down through, why couldn't they put a ladder in and have Lucy climb out? I realize she was in labor, but she likely would have wanted the option.
When Kevin was talking to Eric about the house, Kevin's left arm was on the table, and then it wasn't.
Lucy walks out of the elevator minutes after delivering her baby. She is fully clothed, and is totally sweat-free. There is no way that would be possible.
Nitpick: Eric is really a BAD role model. Should he really be smoking a cigar in front of Matt when back in the pilot episode (albeit 8 years ago) he tried to get him to quit?
Not only is the mother nice and clean after giving birth, so is the baby! Neonates are decidedly gooey when they come into the world, and I seriously doubt there'd be a large enough supply of water in an elevator car to wash Savannah that well after she was born.
Ruthie: (in response to Kevin buying a house for him and Lucy) Are you serious?
Kevin: Yeah, I'm serious.
Ruthie: Lucy's gonna take one look at this house and have the baby on the front lawn!
Sam: What are you gonna name her?
David: Yeah, the baby has to have a name.
Lucy: Well, everyone in our family has a name from the Bible, and while we thought about carrying on the tradition, we decided to name her after the place where we spent our honeymoon.
Simon: (long pause) Wait. Jekyll? Like Jekyll Island?
Kevin: We didn't go to Jekyll Island.
Simon: Well, where did you go?
Lucy: We rented a house on the beach in Savannah, and it was just so beautiful there. It was a very special time, and a very special place for us. So this is Savannah. Savannah Kinkirk!
Lucy (to Camdens): "So, this is Savannah. Savannah Kinkirk."
Ruthie: Excuse me, Aunt comin through.
Lucy to Matt: "Why is it every time I'm with you the baby wants out?"
Kevin to Lucy: "There's something I have to tell you."
Lucy to Kevin: "Is it about the house?"
Kevin to Lucy: "How did you know?"
Lucy to Kevin: "We'll move, but maybe in a couple of months when we know we'll be able to handle this little one all on our own." (Kevin kisses Savannah and Lucy)
Lucy to Family: "We're naming her after the place we went on a honeymoon."
Simon to Lucy: "Jekyll? You're naming her Jekyll after the Jekyll Islands?"
Annie to Kevin: "You didn't do something stupid like going out and buying a house that Lucy's never set foot in did you?"
Ruthie & Eric to Kevin: "Yep."
Martin to Woman #1 (about Lucy's gift): "I want to give her something practical ."
Woman #1 to Martin: "Does she have a breast pump?"
Woman #2 to Woman #1: "I don't think he meant that practical."
Lucy to God: "Oh God in heaven, please help me."
Lucy to Kevin: "Kevin! No! Please!"
Kevin to Matt: "I'm delivering the baby."
Lucy to herself: "Oh Kevin where are you?"
Kevin to Lucy: "I'm right here Luce."
Lucy to Savannah: "I love you Savanah."
Lucy to Matt: "How come every time I'm with you the baby wants out?!"
Lucy to Matt (going into labor): "Uh Oh!"
Matt to Lucy: "Don't worry I can get this thing off."
Lucy to Matt: "No! This is an even bigger uh oh!"
Matt to Lucy: "Uh Oh!"
Lucy to Matt: "You're not supposed to say that! Your a doctor!"
Kevin to Everyone: (Peeks out through the elevator doors) "The baby's here! And I helped!"
Kevin to Everyone (Peeks out through the elevator doors): "The baby is here! And I helped! And I didn't pass out!"
Matt to Lucy: "It's gonna be fine... (Lucy squeezes his hand) OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!"
Ruthie to Kevin: "As soon as the baby's out, she's gonna go berzerk and kill you."
Kevin to Ruthie: "You say it. Say she'll love it. Please say she'll love it?"
Kevin to Ruthie: "This may be better than any house in Glenoak. It may be better than any house in California. It may be better than any house in the United States!"
Ruthie to Kevin: "She's gonna kill you."
Eric to Kevin: "What'd you get her?"
Kevin to Eric: "A house."
Eric to Kevin: "Great!"
Kevin to Eric: "A big house."
Eric: "Even greater!"
Martin (after Lucy gives birth): I never realized what I was missing until this family.
Simon: Kind of makes you want to get married and have a bunch of kids, doesn't it?
Martin: Maybe I'll marry a girl with a lot of brothers and sisters.
Ruthie (behind him, talking to herself): Who knows. Maybe someday you will. Maybe you will.
