Nothing Says Lovin' Like Something from the Oven

"Some Break Ups and Some Get Togethers" was the nineteenth episode of the 11th season of 7th Heaven. On its original airing, the episode scored a 2.79 million viewers.


The entire family develops sympathy for Ruthie after Mac breaks up with Ruthie - for T-Bone - in a text message but accidentally sends it to everyone on his phone list. While somewhat relived, Eric worries that T-Bone will reveal to Ruthie that he somewhat gave T-Bone "permission" to breakup with her if that is what felt right. Meanwhile, Mac upsets Margaret when he uses the paper she wrote for him in his English class. Captain Michaels reveals to Kevin that he has been named Chief of Police and reoffers him his job back at the Glenoak PD. Despite to offer, and to Lucy's indirect disapproval, Kevin tells Lucy that he still wants to accept their job offers in Crossroads. Finally, Jane and Martin have a "phone date", but Martin seems surprisingly shocked when he learns that he was left out of the loop. The next day, Ruthie surprises everyone when she says that Martin drove down from college to see her.
