Mel appears behind him. He wonders how long she’s been standing there. She doesn’t specify a time but lets him know that she’s been there long enough to know that he’s ‘dead wrong.’

She tries to blow it off as not being a big deal and her son trying to connect with her. She explains that she can’t get angry at him every time he acts out. Josh explains that there should be a line a mother doesn’t cross for her son. She tells him to have a drink and then smiles.

Mel warns Rick that he should be helping her sister. He claims that she’s not ready to be a full time mother and brings up the fact that they’ve taken care of Robbie more than she has.
