As Joan and Adam (wearing a camo hoodie) emerge from a classroom arm-in-arm, she shows him the poster for the auditions. "For the Love of Zombies?" Joan says it's actually Zombies in Love: "The director keeps changing the title. Probably because he's mental." Adam reminds her they have midterms coming up, and wonders how she'll have time for this. Joan says her college counsellor is stoked because she'll have another extracurricular. Good golly. One thing this girl is not short on is extracurriculars. What she should work on is getting her grades out of the crapper. Adam says his extracurriculars suck, being nonexistent and all. Joan: "I think you'd make a cute zombie." Adam swings her hand and says semi-sarcastically, "Aw, go on." They agree to meet after rehearsal.
Will's on the sofa reading when Helen comes home. He's surprised to see her; he thought she had classes all day. Helen: "Well, they give us lunch. It's a new union rule." She thought he was going to a movie, but he said he wasn't in the mood. He tells her their lawyer called and the Bakers have a court date -- and it turns out they've got a tough judge, too. Helen finally notices the book Will put aside when she came in: "My catechism book?" Will looks sheepish: "I feel like I just got caught with porn." Hee! Helen smiles a sort of hopeful smile, prompting Will to say, "Don't, Helen. Don't read anything into this." Helen: "When you told me you were taking sick day, you never really said why." He said he told her they were going to expire. Helen knows that, but she obviously didn't buy it. He says he just had to get away: "'Cause my, um job has been, uh, ugly. But then here, we get hit with this lawsuit. So I guess the truth is we can never get away from things, can we?" Helen doesn't know. Will: "I was just hoping for one moment when things make sense. Where people weren't cruel for no reason. Where they don't die for no reason. Just a moment of decency." Helen doesn't say anything, because really, what could she say? Will: "Yeah. Stupid, huh?" Helen gestures to offer the catechism book back, but he declines, saying there's a game on.
