This is the American English definition of these things happen. The two set off back to the Tendo household, Akane growing irked in Ranma's presence, though Ranma calmly waves off her various protests.

This causes Akane to stop in realisation, bad mood evaporating as she teases Ranma with the possibility that maybe he does like her after all, playfully leading Ranma to unthinkingly jump into a river. Akane's mood is now much better, though Ranma is rather puzzled by this change in attitudes from what she is used to. While the two begin heading home , Akane makes a suggestion, borrowing some money from Ranma to buy the both of them burgers and milkshakes from WacDonalds. The two eat in silence before Ranma's idle comment of surprise at the sight of Akane tucking into a second large burger prompts the Tendo girl to angrily ask what the big deal is if she's not all dainty like Kasumi, much to Ranma's confusion as she points out she never said anything like that.
Akane then begins to explain that Dr. Tofu has been flipping out in the manner that Ranma saw over Kasumi for as long as either girl can remember, describing one encounter presumably not too long before the Saotomes arrived in Nerima where Akane tenatively began to tell Tofu about her crush on him, only for Kasumi's arrival to reduce him to a blithering idiot who ended up electrocuting himself at one point. And then, as Akane tells Ranma, Tofu ended up grabbing "Betty", his model skeleton, and running all over town while carrying the model on his back. As she laments that Tofu would never do something so ridiculous for her sake, Ranma unthinkingly comments that this leaves Akane with a really broken heart, looking aghast as the realisation of what she just said hits her.
Akane stands up and makes to leave, clearly hurt, as Ranma tries to apologise for her words -- but the sight of Tofu running past with Betty, giggling madly, merely ensures it's a lost cause. Ranma tries to comfort Akane by telling her that she might stand a chance with Tofu yet, then sadly tells her she has to be aware that things like this happen sometimes when Akane tells the boy-turned-girl to give it a rest.
This, needless to say, ensures that Akane leaves in a bad mood, while Ranma remains behind in a similar state. Realising that she left her schoolbag at Dr. Tofu's clinic, Ranma returns there to retrieve it. At the clinic, Genma is flicking through a lady's magazine while Tofu is out, stumbling across an article titled "How His Thoughtless Words Broke My Heart" and reading it as Ranma comes in and grabs her bag.
At her request, Genma douses Ranma with hot water, then does the same to himself to ask Ranma where Akane is.
When Ranma casually declares Akane to be "boohooing her eyes out somewhere", Genma grows angry with Ranma's attitude. He asks if he's heard the title of the article somewhere before, refusing to let Ranma's sarcastic querry about where he heard such a cheesy phrase deter him, and tells Ranma that he should look out for Akane and make her feel better when she's upset, particularly as Ranma is old enough to know how women can be some time.
these things happen
On the way home, Genma tells Ranma that they sometimes hurt the ones they love and that even he, Genma, has been known to make mistakes. He spins the tale of his dumping a lady love of his named Atsuko for another girl, describing himself as bluntly telling her that the "other girl" is a snappier dresser, sweet, kind, innocent, beautiful and very rich, as well as telling Atsuko not to go making trouble for him.
Needless to say, it is no surprise that Ranma belts Genma in the head at the exact same moment the probably fictitious Atsuko clobbers Genma with a mallet in the story. In the garden of the Tendo household, Akane smashes a brick and then thinks to herself that she needs to snap out of this funk.
