The very, very rich den of a very, very rich house. Nancy is on a sofa crying. A woman I presume is her mother says, "You can't tell Ronnie. He's too damn religious. He'll never marry you." Nancy moans that he's going to find out, isn't he? Mom advises Nancy get him to marry her, and quick. Preggers! Nancy gets mad and says she can't force the guy to marry her. "Dr. Loyal will hear you," Mom says. Ew, formal. Mom says they'll send Nancy back to Hollywood with some nice clothes. "Oh God, your skin is so sallow," she adds. Nancy cries that she'll die if she loses Ron. Mom tells her she's not going to die. She says that if they can't get Ron to marry her, they'll get it "fixed." She knows someone in Chicago, but Nancy could never tell her father. Dad comes in and asks what they're talking about. He supposes it's that handsome Ronald Reagan. Well la di da. He hands out some huge martinis. Nancy takes one, but we don't see her drink it. Dad says that no matter now handsome Ronnie is, he's still a union organizer. He supposes that's what comes from living in Hollywood with drug addicts and communists. Did you guys know that Pamie and Stee are total Communists? Yep, that's Hollywood living right there. "Hollywood used to be a whole lot worse. When I was there it was wall-to-wall Jews and queers," Mrs. Davis says. Wow. I have no idea if Pamie and Stee are gay Jews.

Nancy is being fitted with yet another pregnancy pad. She's on the set of some sort of commercial or film. The dresser asks Nancy if she's sick. Nancy is called onto a kitchen set, and the director asks for rain. The rain doesn't come. A buzzer sounds. Ronnie -- wearing a white sweater and a red bow tie (My GOD!) -- appears, looking for Nancy. She's surprised. The director looks for Nancy. She asks for a minute to talk to her man. Ronnie pulls her aside. "Okay. Here it is," he says. "My father was a drunk. Everywhere we lived, he lost his job." He talks about coming home one day to find his dad passed out in the snow. Ron thought he was in a lot of pain and he had to drag Dad inside. Ronnie says that his mother kept on living the way she thought was right, and that she was kind to dad when he lost his jobs or when they had to move. She was the one who held the family together. Nancy tries to sympathize, and Ronnie tells her she doesn't understand, but she says she does. Ronnie says her family is rich and money is everything. Nancy says her father left before she was born. Dr. Loyal isn't her real father. Nancy says she was left with her aunt for six years while her mother hit the road. She cried herself to sleep for six years. She knows trouble, see? Ronnie tells her he loves her. He says he'd do anything for her. He'd crawl across the country on his knees. Ow. "I'm pregnant," Nancy says. Well, yeah, look at the padding. "Come here, Mommy," Ron says. Oh, man, that never fails to give me the shiverwillies. "Do you want to marry me, huh?" he asks. She says not to say that unless he means it. He does. He does. He loves her. He really does. They kiss briefly. Nancy gets called back to the set.
