Casa de Creepy. Justin and Iris eat supper while Sofie lifts a spoonful of food to Balthus's mouth. Justin says, "Don't." He says that Balthus can eat without help now, and asks Sofie to sit on the other side of the table. Sofie does so, and Justin beams, "Just like a real family!" Balthus tries to feed himself, but drops the spoon before getting it to his mouth. Justin cooly says that Balthus doesn't seem to be too hungry. A phone rings, and Sofie gets up, but Justin insists that he'll get it. He takes his time, finishing cutting up his meat before he finally gets up, has a sip of water, and leaves the room. As soon as Justin's gone, Iris tells Sofie to clear Justin's plate away and make some tea. Sofie's skeptical, but she does it. When Sofie goes into the kitchen, Iris hurries over to Balthus's side and starts to feed him his dinner. As she wipes his mouth, she asks, "Do you remember that ridiculous fortune teller that Justin became so obsessed with back in St. Paul?" Balthus nods, because that's easier than trying to convey, "Are you seriously trying to provide more exposition at this point?" Iris goes on to say that the fortune teller had a baby girl, and looks toward the door pointedly as Sofie returns with the teapot. Sofie looks up to see Iris and Balthus staring at her. "What? Is there something in my teeth?" she fails to ask.
