Through the glass door of Emily's room, we see Lisa standing at her bedside, talking to her. Outside, Emily's mom is asking Luka whether Emily was huffing. Luka says she wasn't. Mrs. Emily babbles, "I've talked to her about drugs, but you never know." Luka says he doesn't think Emily does drugs. Mrs. Emily says she knew she shouldn't have let Emily go on that field trip. Luka asks why, and Mrs. Emily says simply, "She's been sick." Luka leadingly says that Emily told him she's been throwing up every morning. Mrs. Emily misses the point, and asks whether that could be gallstones, which Mrs. Emily's mother had. Luka asks, "Do you know when was her last period?" Offsides! Mrs. Emily, missing the point, says she doesn't keep track. "She has a boyfriend?" Luka asks. No, no, no. "Is she pregnant?" Mrs. Emily twigs. Luka doesn't answer. Mrs. Emily loses it, muttering, "Oh, that little slut," and storming into Emily's room, demanding, "How could you be so stupid?!" "What?!" snaps Emily. Lisa perceptively figures out their relationship. Mrs. Emily yells, "If you're going to sleep around, you could at least use a condom!" "He didn't want to!" Emily stupids, but she is twelve, so I'll let it slide. I guess. Wait, what the hell am I saying? She's twelve! Who is having sex with a twelve-year-old girl? I know teenage girls mature young these days, but damn. I just meant, at twelve, she hasn't got enough judgment regarding sex not to have sex with a guy who won't wear a condom...but that still takes us back to the fact that she's twelve and having sex. Which is just wrong, I don't care how mature you are. Mrs. Emily asks, "Who is the little bastard? You're getting an abortion!" "I am not!" Emily shoots back. "Yes, you are!" Mrs. Emily screams. Luka and Lisa try unsuccessfully to calm everyone down, but Mrs. Emily is more interested in pursuing the "you can't take care of a baby -- you can't even take care of yourself!" line of argument (which I think is valid, but not if you're screaming it in a girl's face one minute after you found out she's pregnant). "Get her out of here," Emily commands. Luka complies, telling Mrs. Emily, "I need you to step outside." "I need you to mind your own business," Mrs. Emily barks. (Heh.) Emily whines at Luka, "I told you not to tell her! She's a psycho!" As Luka steers her toward the door, Mrs. Emily yells, "She is not leaving here pregnant!" Emily nasals, "Yes, I am! I'm having this baby! And I'm going to be a much better mother than you, you bitch!" Aw. That's sweet!
