Meanwhile, over at the Botswana fundraiser, Sister Mary Hotpants is giving a presentation. She has a map, and a poster that features a photo of her with a young African boy, whom she introduces as "Tundeh," describing how he lost both his parents in the drought. Carlos and a crowd of sympathetic-looking people are listening and nodding along to SMH's spiel. Gabby is in the very back of the room, looking bored. She gets up and goes to the coffee urn, and a priest (possibly the same one she told first, back when she was pregnant) comes over and asks her what brings her to the meeting. Gabby, archly: "I'm concerned about the drought in Kenya." The priest corrects her, "Botswana," and Gabby is all, yeah, right, whatever, but then she asks him, sort of politely, what he's been up to. The priest informs her that he's been busy trying to raise money for this Botswana trip, which is just a week away, but that, sadly, their funds are so skimpy this year that they had to cut back on the number of aid workers they're sending: "Sister Mary [and] Sister Greta were so disappointed." Gabby perks up at the idea of Sister Mary going on a trip, and she asks the Father for more details. Apparently, Sister Mary goes to Africa every year, for at least a few months, but this year, when she discovered funds were short, she stepped aside, claiming that there's "plenty of god's work to do here." Gabby is all, "I bet." While this conversation between Gabby and the priest plays out, we see Sister Mary drop a bunch of her handouts. Carlos springs up to help her, and they smile warmly at each other. Gabby: "How much cash are you short, Father?"
