Over to the Applewrongs. Ahhh, remember them? It's been so very long. What was it they're hiding, again? Oh right, they've got the accused axe murderer Caleb, and also the cover-up of PI Ironside's accidental death. Okay, I'm ready. So Betty is playing her magical piano when Matthew comes in to ask if he can borrow fifty dollars. This is a pretty boring scene, so I won't go into too much, other than to say that Danielle's birthday is coming up and Matthew needs the money for some jewelry. (I'm not sure what kind of jewelry he thinks he's going to get for that kind of change; maybe he has some super-cute, local-designer silver charm necklace in mind? I can live with that. I don't think high school's the time for big, expensive gifts anyway.) Betty doesn't want to give him the money because she still doesn't like the idea of Danielle. ("Write her a poem," she tells Matthew. "It's free.") But Matthew pressures Betty by saying that since he can't get a job because she makes him spend his time looking after Caleb, maybe it's time to put Caleb "away." Just then, Caleb walks in and asks what they're fighting about. Betty, picking up on Matthew's implied threat, tells Caleb that all is well, and then she hands Matthew a twenty. Twenty dollars? For jewelry? Okay, that's sad. Looks like this year, Danielle's getting the kind of jewelry that turns skin green. Happy birthday!
