Ephram moves on to another subject, asking if the window moldings are original, but Bright still wants to talk about Hannah: "So I should probably apologize to her, right? I mean, right?" Ephram says he's going to go out on a limb here and take note of the fact that they've been in the apartment for ten minutes now, and he hasn't even checked the water faucets yet -- instead, he's been obsessing over Hannah. Bright argues that he is not obsessing. Ephram rags that he thinks it's great; they'd make a really, really cute couple. Bright says Hannah isn't even his type, how could he be into her? "I mean, she's cute, but not like make-out-with-her cute. And besides, she's my friend. When you're my friend, that's...like...just how it is, or whatever. So...what? Why are you smiling?" Ephram: "You realize the last two things you said made no sense, right?" Bright rolls his eyes and tells Ephram to go to Europe already. Love.
Abbotts'. Rose is brushing her hair in the bathroom. She examines the brush until she realizes that Patch is watching her. He inquires tenderly, "How you feeling?" Rose says she's much better than this morning, and asks if he remembered to get something from the drug store. Patch overreacts, throwing his jacket down on the bed. "No. Damn it!" Rose tells him not to worry about it; they can pick it up tomorrow. Patch says he's sorry. Rose assures him it's okay, and it's not the end of the world. Patch says no, he's sorry about everything -- for not listening to her, for dismissing her symptoms. Rose tells him to stop: "Your apologies are no good here." Patch sits down heavily on the bed. Rose climbs over next to him, and says she was thinking earlier about their first date. Patch says he remembers: it was the annual Thaw Festival. Rose reminds him that she wanted to ride the teacups, but he was scared and made up some excuse about the ride not being up to standards. Aw. Patch says, as he recalls, they shared their first kiss on those teacups. Rose says they sure did, and that's when she knew they would fall in love. Patch asks if it's because he was such a good kisser. Rose: "No, dear." Heh. Rose says she remembers being terrified of the ride, since it went so much faster than she thought -- but then she buried her head in his arm, and felt safe. "And that is how I've felt every moment of my life with you. You have never let me down, Harold Abbott. Not me, and not the children. This family is what it is because of your strength and your commitment." Patch replies that his strength comes entirely from Rose. Rose: "And mine from you. And Bright and Amy get theirs from us. The four of us are a team." Patch asks if she thinks they should tell the kids. Rose says only if he feels ready. Just then, Amy bursts in to ask if they can please order some food, because she's starving and Bright is threatening to cook. Patch and Rose look at each other. Amy asks what's wrong, and we fade to the living room, where all four Abbotts sit together talking, while music of heartbreak plays in the foreground. Commercials.
