Sally has barely touched her food, and ever the grandmother, Pauline notices. "Don't you like the food, dear?" Pauline asks. Sally: "No." Betty's mortified, of course, so she goes to that old standby of hers: intimidation and abuse. She tells Sally to at least eat the sweet potatoes, even pointing out that it comes with a marshmallow. Betty shoves it all into Sally's mouth, 'mallow and all. Sally gags it back, because she's as willful as her mom and juuust a bit brighter (I suspect she knows this reflects worse on Betty, tasked as she is with getting Henry's family to accept her, than it does on her). Betty yanks Sally up from her seat and drags her into the next room. "Sorry," Sally calls pitifully as she's being dragged. "It's all right dear," Pauline faux-graciously declares, as she calls Isabel in to clean the mess. Offscreen, Sally cries, "Ow! Stop pinching me!" Yeah, that girl knows exactly the game she's playing. Back at the table, Bobby cuts through the uncomfortable silence: "I love sweet potatoes." Bobby will definitely say the Gump-iest thing at any given moment. Henry calls again for Isabel.
