Felicia is struggling to get her groceries out of her trunk and notices Zach strumming his acoustic guitar on the porch. Thank god someone finally gave that troubled teen a guitar! Felicia asks him if he would mind giving her a hand getting her groceries into the house, and she baits the hook by telling him there's some banana bread in it for him. Since no teenaged boy can resist the siren call of banana bread, he agrees. Zach small talks about the tastiness of Felicia's bread (stop!) and how he's never actually been inside Mrs. Huber's house before. "Obviously you haven't missed much," Felecia says with a pointed look at the wild animal tchotchkes, "this is where good taste goes to die." Then she starts right in with the digging. She heard Zach fighting with his father the other day, is everything all right at home? And she bets he misses his mother. "Such a warm, loving woman," she tells him. Zach stutters, "Y-you know my mother?" Oh sure, Felicia used to work with her, back in Utah. "Your mother loved you so much," She tells a visibly shaken Zach, "Of all the things I remember, I remember that most." Zach breaks down and squeezes out some very believable reluctant teenaged boy tears. Gently Felicia removes the piece of banana bread from his hands and hands him a napkin. "Do you want to know what else I remember?" Ominous piano tinkles in the background. "How lovely...your original...name was." Zach looks up, and after a moment, says with a small voice, "Dana?" A knowing, encouraging look spreads across Felicia's face. And...commercial! Wow, was Zach/Dana (Zana?) one of those dual-organed babies whose sex is selected by its parents and then sealed surgically? Ooh.
