Beth and Helen are in the kitchen now, and Beth tells her that she's dating someone at college: "His name's Todd and he's an English major, but other than that, he's really great." ["'Other than that'? What's wrong with English majors, Bizzoth?" -- Sars] Helen remembers that Beth likes milk in her tea. She says that it seems so normal to have Beth in her kitchen. I can totally see her and Kevin together; she's very natural and girl-next-door-ish. Beth agrees it feels normal to be there. Helen: "I can still see the two of you doing your homework at this table." Beth says that Kevin thinks they broke up because of his accident. Helen says any relationship would have trouble enduring that degree of stress: "You were kids. You still are." Beth says it wasn't like that. Helen says it's between Beth and Kevin. Beth: "But I had a relationship with your whole family. I just -- I can't stand you guys having that kind of opinion of me." Helen: "Beth, I know that you need some kind of closure on all this, but it can't be with me." Suddenly Kevin enters the house and calls out, "Back from the mines!" He wheels into the kitchen and sees Beth, and stops. Helen says with a smile, "Kevin, look who dropped by." Kevin: "Get out." Helen: "Hey." Kevin says he doesn't want her in here. Beth picks up her stuff and starts to walk past Kevin, as he says, "On second thought, since you're here, why don't you come watch me ride the little motor chair up the stairs. And then for big laughs, I can adjust my catheter!" Helen: "Hey!" Beth stops and turns, in tears: "Kevin, whatever you think that I have done to you, you've more than made up for it now." She hustles out the front door. Kevin barks, "Good!" Helen comes over to him and asks calmly, "Proud of yourself?" Kevin: "Yeah. I held back." He takes off.
