Jackie is so dazed that she murmurs all the proper words, not even knowing who she's talking to, and completely disses Ethel, who shouts, "Hello? Is anybody in there?" Some Kennedy hanger-on points out that she's sick. Ethel says they're all under pressure. She spots RFK waltzing with some bimbo, and then makes someone dance with her. Ted finds Joan sitting at the Kennedy table. She asks what he's going to do now. He doesn't know. Aw. Poor Ted. (Yes, yes, I know about Chappaquiddick and everything -- but come on, you read those letters Joe Kennedy sent to Ted, and you realize that the poor schlub had a really tough childhood.) Ted says that Joe wants him to run for Jack's old Senate seat, but that's not his dream. Joan says they should go home. Down on the floor, Jackie apologizes to Jack and tells him she has to leave. Jack tells her she has nothing to apologize for, and that she should go home. Elsewhere, someone asks Ethel if Bobby will take the Attorney General seat. Ethel says that it's what Grandpa Kennedy and Jack want, but she thinks Bobby should break out on his own, away from Jack, and run for governor somewhere -- then in eight years it would be their turn. Methinks someone's eyes are bigger than her stomach. Confirmation hearings. RFK gets the Attorney General position. It's like watching the most boring fraternity hazing ever. Ethel and Bobby smile at each other. Hickory Hill, 1961. Ted and Joan and Ethel and Bobby are having a pool party. RFK and some of his cronies toss a pretty blonde into the pool. Ethel comes out to hear the excitement and sees Bobby toweling off the blonde's thigh. Ethel calls, "Bobby? Don't you want to play football?" Bobby, without looking up, says, "Not right now, Ethel!" to much raucous laughter. Joan watches. Next scene: Ethel's crying furiously while Bobby and Joan come in after her. Bobby tells her she knows he loves her, that they're a team. Ethel says she knows. Bobby hugs her. Ethel pushes him away, says she's not one to feel sorry for herself. Yuck, yuck, yuck. Joan looks on in wordless sympathy. Ethel says listlessly, "I'm fine, kid." UGH. Note to self: never marry philandering political figure with premature ejaculation problem. Also, never develop hideously nasal voice. ["Don't call people 'kid,' either. But you knew that." -- Sars] Some time earlier. Jackie and Ethel are having lunch. Ethel tells Jackie she doesn't know why she and Jack sold the place. I don't think they're talking about Hickory Hill, but I don't know where they are. Jackie looks tense. Ethel lists off the menagerie they're housing, and why the huge house is perfect for them. She holds a tidbit out for the dog. Jackie breaks down, says, "It's a zoo!" and then holds out a newspaper with the headline, "The Senator and the Ladies," with a picture of JFK. Ethel looks at it, dismisses it, and says, "He's just like his father." Jackie asks if Bobby is, too. Ethel denies it. Jackie says she doesn't care what Jack does as long as it's not thrown in her face, and that she can't forgive Jack for not being there when their daughter Arabella was stillborn. Man! What a heel! Jackie says she doesn't want to be married to a man who can be that selfish. Ethel tells her Grandpa Kennedy will never allow a divorce.
