Becky wipes some tears from her eyes and asks Tami: "Do you think I'm going to hell if I get an abortion" and Tami looks at her with such tenderness and says "No, honey, I don't." Becky asks her what she would tell her daughter and Tami takes a minute to think it through. "I would tell her...to think about her life, think about what's important to her, and what she wants. And tell her that she's in a real tough spot. And then I would support whatever decision she made." And as the pretty sad song ends in the background, Becky looks at Tami, and I guess she has reached as much clarity as she is going to: "I can't take care of a baby. I can't." It isn't really a clear sense of what she wants, but the more real and more pragmatic sense of what she can and cannot do.
Commercials (ahem, tissue break). Tim is groggily getting out of his truck, apparently back from a long night of digging a hole, when Becky and her mom are getting into the car. Becky tells Tim that they'll be okay, and I believe it.
Pop Warner football game. Jess is wild-eyed on the sidelines, shouting instructions to her little brother. Big Merri slowly walks toward the sidelines, just in time for both of them to be screeching crazy football instructions about sweep plays to a 7 year old. I guess this is family bonding?! Jess goes quiet, her mouth agape, as she registers her father's presence. He runs out to Caleb and gives the little kid a tap on his helmet, "Have fun out there!" Jess, hands on hips, gives her father a wide-mouthed smile and chuckle.
Vince sits with his mother on a fancy leather couch, getting the lowdown on visiting hours from a counselor. His mom says that she'll be home soon, but Vince cuts her off and tells her that he believes in her. "You can do this." They embrace and she heads off to her new room with the counselor. Vince stops at the reception desk, and when the assistant tries to arrange payment, he hands over an envelope of four thousand dollars cash. She looks at it suspiciously, but takes it. He heads out the door and gets into the Black Cadillac of Bad Influence in which Calvin, of course, sits. The driver -- the same guy who was teaching him and Calvin how to steal cars? -- hands him a gun and tells Vince "Got you, man." Snares! Of bad influence!
