Cut to Susan walking into the store with a wild look in her eye and a weird shawl on her shoulders. What the...? It's like a huge tube-top thing that she's wearing over her arms, and it's a very yucky brown with pink streaks and some dangling bow elements, and maybe a tail? It's a very difficult garment to parse. Mr. Prudy is joshing with a customer, telling him? her? to tell "Charlie" that he misses his "ugly mug." As soon as the customer leaves, Mr. Prudy spies Susan and says he bets he knows why she's there. Susan looks totally shocked, all "Daddy?"-eyed, but it turns out that he just thinks she's there for the free cowboy hat giveaway. Susan tries to tell him she's fine, she doesn't need anything from him, but he tells her to relax; the hat is a "promotional item," as in he didn't pay for it. He sticks it on her head, and she gets this sad little puppy look. The "sad little girl sans father" music swells, and Mr. Prudy tells Susan she's "pretty as a picture."
Cut to Susan running out of the store and beaming. Julie, looking all, "uh oh," just stares at Susan as she gets in the car and giggles, "I have a dad. He's great. He gave me a hat!" Is Susan maybe...special?
Solis bed of post-coital bliss. Gabby, in a pink satin robe, has her head tucked on Carlos's naked chest, and he has his arm around her. Aw. Gabby: "Wow. That biting thing at the end? It totally blew my mind. Please tell me you didn't learn that in prison." Carlos laughs, kisses the top of her head, and turns over to go to sleep. Wow, I've never gotten a good look at the tattoo on his arm. It looks like a big, fat, totally 3D cross, intertwined with a serpent. As we see in the scenes that follow, Carlos is ramping up for a serious religious freak-out, but with a tattoo like that, I wonder if he's been struggling with his faith for some time now. Gabby gives Carlos a hard time for going to sleep, regarding the fact that she is still sex-hungry, but he begs for just ten minutes of sleep. Gabby: "What is wrong with you? You are totally useless after sex." Carlos: "I know, I should probably get my thyroid checked." Which is a joke, I guess?
While Carlos dozes, Gabby takes the opportunity to rifle through a plastic bag of his stuff, and finds a stack of letters. Gabby: "Who's Sister Mary Bernard?" Carlos's eyes spring open and he tries to grab the letters, yelling that they're "private." Gabby yanks them out of range and gives Carlos a petulant look until he explains that Sister Mary Bernard is one of the nuns who helped him to get out of jail early, and that she visited him a couple times. Gabby reads one of the letters out loud, mockingly: "When you walk with God every day, you learn that truth is understood in the mind, but faith burns in the heart." Carlos grabs the letters back and tells Gabby that she doesn't know what it was like in prison, "twenty hours a day, eight-by-ten cell, just you and your mind." Gabby: "So, pretty much just you," as in, Carlos has no mind. Zing! Carlos keeps plugging along with the earnestness, saying that he realized he was "a very bad person for a very long time, but now all that is gonna change. Because I'm on a new path." Gabby looks somewhat concerned at this news. Carlos to Gabby: "I want to do right by you, by my mama, and by God." With that, Carlos walks off toward the bathroom (and what're those? the barest hint of love handles? all the better to steer him over in my direction, I say!). Gabby: "What the hell did they do to you in that prison?"
