Or maybe you upgraded from Lion or Snow Leopard and somehow the iChat app doesn't got replaced... Try to reinstall ML.

Nope. This here's a brand new rMBP. It came with Mountain Lion.

You don't have Mountain Lion then.

The more I think about it, the more this COULD be it. I bought the laptop yesterday and walked out of the store, but I didn't get anything about upgrading to Mountain Lion, so naturally, I assume I have ML. I'll check it when I get home.

I think you found the answer. I was at a Best Buy yesterday and the rMBP's on display were running 10.7.4, not saying none are now running ML, but the simplest explanation is usually right.
