Joan's in the computer lab, looking grim and teary as she watches the tape of Adam and Judith over and over again, turning up the speakers to try to hear something, but she can't make anything out. Frink, noting the quality of the flat-screen monitors and so forth: "This is a very well-off school they have." I'll bet she wishes God had given her a lip-reading assignment amongst her many "idiot projects."
Girardi house that night. Helen's listening to Peter Frampton: "Show Me The Way." She fishes out a picture of her and Jeremy back in the day. Okay, I don't know who that is, but he's seriously cute, even with the big lapels and the vest and the 1970s hair. Cuter than Will. Sorry. I just call 'em like I see 'em. Helen smiles at the picture as she barely moves her lips along to the words of the song. Then she looks troubled. Joan comes into the room next to her to watch TV. She's got her video camera with her. Helen says something about needing to clean out that cupboard. Joan: "Yeah. Your junk. Not helping." Helen says she thought Joan would be out with Adam and Judith. Joan: "Can I spend a little bit of quality time by myself? Do I have to be around a million people all the time?" Helen, sensing a teenage mood: "No. Are -- are you okay?" Joan responds impatiently: "Are you? Listening to Peter Frampton? That's kinda pathetic." She picks up the album cover. Hey! I thought the Girardis didn't have a turntable. "According to Behind the Music, his career took a nosedive in 1978." Girl sure watches a lot of BtM. Helen says she was just cleaning out some junk. Joan examines Frampton Comes Alive! and sighs, "You must have been so young then." Helen lets that pass. "Bet you couldn't wait to grow up, huh?" Helen agrees weakly.
In the kitchen, Will and Kevin are doing dishes, laughing and heckling each other about golf. Will tells Kevin he took Kroner's number from Lucyfer. Kevin: "Mom'll never agree to it." Helen suddenly comes in: "Agree to what?" Will: "A new lawyer." Helen replies, "We have a lawyer. And Tom's a friend." Will says he was discussing the case with Lucyfer today. Helen, suspiciously: "Why do you discuss our business with her?" Will says he works with her: "Things come up. You haven't mentioned it to your nun?" Helen: "Well I can trust her." Will: "And Lucy[fer]'s gonna blab it around the station?" Helen doesn't know: "Last week, she suggested blackmail." Kevin tells her that he's looked into it and Kroner's a great litigator: "And why wouldn't we go into this as strong as possible?" Helen's not too happy that Will and Kevin have started this up without consulting her. Will: "Look, it isn't easy for any of us " Helen: "Well, apparently going behind my back is!" Will: "And it's so easy for you to be forthcoming? How long did it take for you to accept the fact that we even needed a lawyer?" Kevin: "Stop! Stop! We were wrong, okay? We were, Dad. But I want to meet this guy, and I'd like it, if we were all there." Joan's wandered up and started videotaping. Kevin glances over and notices her. He wheels out of the room, and as he passes Joan, he knocks the camera out of her hands. We get a FloorCam shot of Helen and Will looking annoyed and dismayed, and then Joan's upside-down face fills the screen as she retrieves the camera.
