Susan passes right when Ralph is spewing New Age joy, and shoots him a really amusing "oh no he di-int!" look. She's got Jorge in tow, and is escorting the fighter to Rudy's trauma room while explaining that his vitals seem strong. "Is he awake yet?" asks Jorge, who seems antsy. Susan shakes her head, but theorizes that Rudy will probably be able to hear him speaking at his bedside. Hesitantly, Jorge enters the room, where Mark and Papa Escalona already stand. Susan stares through the glass.
On the stand, Roger smiles innocently and says he and Carla agreed that Reese would always be their first priority, which is why it was so damn rude of her to up and die like that. I think the man playing Roger's attorney is a well-known actor, but I am not a well-informed lady, so I'll be content to note that his shiny bald pate and huge brows, and dub him Eyebrows from here on out. Eyebrows coaxes Roger to elaborate on his dedication as a parent. Roger lists, "I learned to sign, I've always been in contact with his teachers," and he volunteered tirelessly at Reese's school, in addition to donating sixteen of his kidneys to the science department and discovering a cure for bedwetting. As Eyebrows asks about Roger's employment situation, Benton violates Rule #143 and leans over to whisper in Roma's ear. He's pretty sure the bedwetting thing was a lie. Roger clarifies that he's self-employed and runs a website company, which probably should be "tech company" or "website design company" or just "website," because as it's spoken, it sounds like Roger manufactures websites. He adds that he makes his own hours and hasn't ever needed to ask for help in picking up Reese. Eyebrows asks if he's ever dumped Reese into the laps of others, to which Roger self-righteously replies, "I never wanted to." By now, Benton is getting agitated. Roma objects to Eyebrows' implication that Benton wants to fob off Reese's care-giving, but the attorney argues that Roger has firsthand experience with Benton's version of parenting. We're treated to a rehash of the long list of Benton's helpers, which includes Roger himself, and the mention of which has Peter fidgeting in his chair. "Did Reese ever mention where he prefers to sleep?" asks Eyebrows. Roger puts on a noble face and says, "He likes my place. Says it's his home."
