Joan goes back to the empty auditorium and starts wheeling a dolly toward Adam's sculpture. She's surprised by a security guard, who asks if she's trying to steal the sculpture. Joan claims she's not stealing it: "The artist said I could have it." The guard says nothing while he looks at her with extreme skepticism. Joan holds out her wrists and says, "You know, you'd make my life a lot easier if you just arrested me right now and took me to jail." He replies, "You want to lift something that heavy, you need help." Joan says, after a moment's thought: "Or maybe you could help me. That's what people say, right? I mean, 'God, help me.'" He says, "I take more of an advisory role in our work together." Translation: God doesn't do menial labour. She complains that Adam won't withdraw the piece from the show, and it's too big to steal by herself: "I'm out of ideas!" He tells her to think harder. She asks, "Are we afraid that Adam won't win, and this is gonna break his heart? Or maybe, maybe someone's going to trip over it and then try to sue the school." Security Guard God says, "I like the way you're beginning to consider the results and ramifications of our work together." He tells her to turn the lights off when she leaves.
Joan gets home as Luke and Helen are preparing dinner. Joan asks if Dad's home. Helen asks what she needs her father for. Joan: "What's with this new thing where I ask you a question and you ask me twenty questions about it?" Luke: "Think of it as Socratic parenting." Heh. Frink really enjoyed that one. Will comes in another door, and Joan rushes over, saying, "Daddy! Is it ever okay to break the law?" Will says, "Somebody kills somebody, it's serious, no matter what the circumstance." Joan: "Who said anything about killing?" Will asks what they're talking about. Helen says they're not allowed to ask. Kevin gets home, and Will asks how work went. Kevin snorts, "Let's just say I know more about Ashton Kutcher than I really want to." You and me both, Kev. I feel you. He mispronounces Kutcher's last name, and Luke, Joan, and Helen correct him in unison. That's the second Ashton Kutcher reference on this show in eight episodes. The guy is just not all that, okay? Now, Christopher Marquette... Kevin asks his dad, "What's with that shot you took at figure skaters?" Will says it was an analogy.
