When Ruthie suddenly becomes interested in religion, Eric and Annie get suspicious. They later discover that Ruthie and T-bone each got tattoos after consulting with their friends.

  • Tyler Hoechlin does not appear in this episode
  • Eric and Annie mention that they know about the tattoos that all five of their kids have.

Both Lucy and Ruthie have a tattoo on their lower backs; Lucy has a flower design, Ruthie has T-Bone's name and Ruthie's initials are tattooed on T-Bone's outer ankle. The rest of the kids (Matt, Mary, and Simon) also have tattoos but it isn't said what they have.
