Tom tells Lynette that he has something to show her. He leads her over to the P-twins, who are sitting together in a love seat in the living room. Tom starts drilling the kids: what do you do if a stranger offers you a ride? P1: "Run away and call 911." Tom high-fives him. Tom gets more specific: what if the stranger claims to know Tom and Lynette? P2: "Still run away!" Lynette jumps in and asks, "What if the stranger is nice and not scary?" P2 still sticks to the "run away and call 911" story, and Tom makes the "champion" gesture by putting his fists together and shaking them over each shoulder. Lynette asks what if a stranger offers pizza, a trip to the circus, and elephant rides? The twins look over at Tom, who nods "no" surreptitiously. Lynette yells at them not to look at their dad, and still P2 comes up with the right answer. Tom is triple-stoked, and sends the kids to the kitchen, promising "ice cream tonight!" The kids run off, and Lynette gives Tom a look like "you're kidding" and tells him that the Q&A with the boys meant nothing. Tom, exasperated, tells her that he's been working with the kids on this all afternoon and they get it. Lynette says that although she loves her kids deeply, what she and Tom say goes "in one ear and out the other." Tom throws his hands in the air, like he just doesn't care, and says he's going to go eat some ice cream. Lynette says he's not off the hook. Tom: "I can keep my children alive. When you left this morning, there were four. When you came home, there were still four. When you come and there are only three, then you get to lecture me." Ha!
