Simone zigs over to the subject of her father's last moments; he came out of his coma and started talking, saying he'd "been flying all over the world, but that it was a world he didn't recognize -- there were so many people filled with pain, nobody lookin' out for each other." Peter looks gassy. Simone adds that Charles worried for them, and for her -- until Peter told him that "everything would be okay." Peter frowns, and asks kind of combatively what that means. Simone knows it doesn't make sense, but repeats that Charles was flying with Peter, and that Peter told him it would be okay -- that there were people "who would make a difference. That [Peter] would save the world." Man, this is some clunky writing -- and Tawny Cypress is a pretty lady, but her The More You Know line delivery is not doing it for me. Peter carefully says that he never had that conversation with Charles; Simone says that, still, it sounds like something Peter would say, like the messages he left on her answering machine. Her tone gets kind of hostile as she reminds him that he said he needed one of Isaac's paintings because it would help him to save the world; she turns to him with her arms crossed, looking pissy. "It's hard to explain," Peter says, looking defeated. Simone stalks over to him: "But if you had that painting?" Peter knows he's losing the room: "I could save the world." "Linderman," Simone says. Peter: "Henh?" Simone sold the painting to a guy named Linderman who lives in Las Vegas. Again, hard to tell what's going on with the acting here; either Simone's so pissed at Peter that she's about to slap him, or she ate an entire head of cabbage the night before.
