Don reaches his front door and sees the Barbie from "Gene" lying in the bushes, which I confess would make me want to turn right around and sleep in the car. However, he soldiers forward, and upstairs, finds Sally asleep with the nightlight on. He places the doll on her dresser before withdrawing, which turns out not to be the greatest idea when moments later, he hears screaming from Sally's room -- she woke up and saw the doll and figured there were nefarious forces at work. Besides the ones at Mattel, I mean. Don rushes in and holds her, but when Betty appears with the crying Baby Gene, Sally screams again, and Polly barks for good measure. Betty, it will shock you to hear, has little sympathy for the child that should know better than to wake her up, and by the way, his absence in the scene makes me seriously wonder if Bobby is still alive, given that all the racket hasn't stirred him. When Betty and the baby are gone, Sally tells Don that Grandpa Gene's not supposed to be there anymore, but the baby has his name and looks just like him and is in his room, "and I bet when he starts talking, he's gonna sound just like him too!" If that's true, he's going to be working a lot bluer than the kindergarten teachers are accustomed to. Don firmly tells Sally that Gene's a baby and only a baby, and since ghosts don't exist she can just go to sleep...
