Melinwitt stares Jim down. Jim stops babbling. Melinwitt tells Jim that Will was at their wedding and that he's been with Jim all along. He had to stick around to make sure Jim settled down. And what would Brother Will have done if Jim became a confirmed bachelor? Haunt him for the rest of his days? Throw pots and pans at him and moan, "Yooooouuuu neeeeeeed a wiiiiiiiife. Yoooooou caaaaaaaaaan't cooooooooook foooooor shiiiiiiiit!"? Jim wants to know what Brother Will said. "He talked about falling off the roof and how you held him, how you talked to him --" Melinwitt says. Jim shakes his head that he was too late -- he couldn't save him. "Hey," Melinwitt stops him, her perky face in black silhouette, "no one could have saved him. It was just his time -- that's all. But he wanted me to tell you something and he wanted me to wait until you were really ready to throw in the towel. He said, 'The thing about Jim is, he knows how to take all your fear away. People feel it. He makes more of a difference than he knows.' He wouldn't want you to give up," Melinwitt adds. She goes on that what happens to people in their last moments really matters, and Jim does great work, no matter what. "We're in the life business -- death is just a part of it." Oh Lord, can I get that embroidered on a casket-shaped pillow and give it to Coleman Brothers' Mortuary? They kiss. A lot. Outside, Brother Will watches them, smiles, and walks away. He walks by Slampiece sitting in his car, brooding. Man, it's like Ghost Central Station at that place! Okay, technically, Slampiece isn't a ghost, but still. Slampiece gets out of his car.

Mathra: Wait, how did he find her?
Keckler: She always leaves a calling card in the shape of a ghost.

After commercials, Melinwitt comes down to meet Slampiece on her porch. His wife made him call the Pentagon. At this time of night? Who was there taking sobby calls about Vietnam vets? Maybe I should watch E-Ring and find out. Slampiece says they've narrowed down the possible location of the copter crash, and the Pentagon is working with the Vietnamese government to send a search party out for remains. Slampiece demands to know where she got her info and where she got the compass. Melinwitt calmly tells him that she told him the truth. She says she talks to aaaangeeellllls, says they all knooooow her naaaaaaame! Slampiece wants to know if it's really true that she can talk to his father. Paul comes out of the shadows to stand next to Melinwitt and tells Melinwitt to ask Slampiece if he still has the last letter he sent to Slampiece's mother. Melinwitt repeats the questions. "Is -- is -- is he here?" Slampiece stutters. Melinwitt confirms that Paul did knock once on the table, therefore he is there with them. "Tell him he grew up real good," Paul says, "tell him I'm proud of him." Melinwitt translates the message through the ether. Slampiece wants to know if his father hurt or was in pain. Melinwitt says that Paul doesn't really remember any of it. He just remembers thinking of Baby Slampiece and Ma Slampiece. "She never forgot about you," Slampiece says, talking to the air that is supposed to be Paul, "she told me stories about you every night -- mostly happy ones, sometimes sad ones. She made you alive to me but it just made me miss you more. Did you see me growing up?" Paul, with tears in his eyes, says, "Tell him I've been lost. But now I can. I see his wife and I'll see my grandchild and I'll always be close by -- always be watching." Melinwitt repeats all this.
