We then go to Teeny's baptism. It's a full-immersion number in the pool, and Bill says somberly, "I want to be the first to welcome you as an adult member of our family for all eternity, with all the responsibilities and privileges of a family of faith." This so moves Margene that she hustles into the pool and implores him, "Me next. I need to be baptized next, right now, right this minute. I'm sorry, Teeny. Bill, when I married into I guess I must've thought I was just marrying you. Now I realize I was marrying all of you. I was marrying sisters. My sisters, that was my choice, and I'd make that choice all over again, and I know, I know, I've made a lot of mistakes lately -- maybe always -- I can get better. I will, because, because I want to be with you guys forever too. I love you guys. I need you guys. And I never, ever want to not be in this family. Here or in heaven. Now, I'm ready." As an ecstatic Barb and Nicki look on -- Nicki grabbing Barb's hand in a spontaneously affectionate way -- Bill baptizes Margene. She pops up looking absolutely radiant for someone who's just doomed herself to a life of spousal hectoring and stunted development. Everyone else watching looks pretty happy too -- except for one person.
Ben sneaks away to his room and drops to his knees, praying, "Dear Heavenly Father, I have knowingly sinned against you. Please, I will follow your path wherever you want me to go, if you will tell me a prayer or a way to have back my virtue, my virginity. Please, dear Lord, I need you with me now." We end the episode with Ben in tears, listening intently for that still, small voice.
