Moving on. The garage. The two enter to find Grams "Little Old Lady From Kick-Ass-A-Dena" Ryan sighting a pistol, and stop dead in surprise. Grams explains that it's a prop Mr. Brooks saved. "Maybe I could use this to keep my granddaughter in line," she cracks, but Gretchen and Dawson don't laugh. Dawson looks around at all the movie paraphernalia, commenting that he had no idea Mr. Brooks had saved all that stuff. Grams says that, in spite of what he might have said, Mr. Brooks "was fiercely proud of what he accomplished in his career." Silence from the kids. Grams remarks that "it was a lovely service, wasn't it?" Dawson nostril-flares, "Yeah, quite a turn-out, too." Grams shoots him an appraising look; Gretchen steps up to assure her that yes, "it was a lovely service, Mrs. Ryan. How can we help?" Grams says Mr. Brooks didn't want his things just "collecting dust," so she thought they might donate it somewhere. Dawson uses his entire body to roll his eyes and turn away from her, and when Grams pointedly asks him if he has any suggestions, he gripes, "What's the point? Nobody even knew he existed." Maybe there's something Dawson would like to take, to remember Mr. Brooks by? Dawson starts to say something, then walks past Grams and out of the garage without a word. Gretchen and Grams exchange a "the hell?" look, and Gretchen starts to go after him, but Grams says, "No, let -- let me," and follows Dawson outside.
