Grace is sitting at the bar wrapping up Jackie's finger for the day, while Fiona next to her fiddles with the bandages. Grace shines like the sun, helping her mom and her sister. Fiona nearly spills the beans about her errand with Kevin -- going to a jewelry store to buy a replacement wedding ring -- but everybody stops her in time. The clouds gather over Grace's head, but Jackie nods. "It's hard to keep a secret," she says; she should know. She takes off with Grace for tap class, and after they're gone Fiona protests that she wasn't really going to tell. "Yes you were," Kevin says indulgently, and she grins. "I know." He laughs.
At tap class Kaitlyn's mom, the former homecoming queen, is trying to jumpstart a casual boilerplate conversation about how she wants another baby, don't you miss babies, because that's what moms talk about. But the thing that makes Jackie the way she is, the original ingredient that sets her and Zoey apart, is that she has no interest in doing what people do just because they do it: she flatly tells the woman she doesn't miss babies at all. The wheels of social interaction grind a little bit, unlubricated, but Jackie was always weird, and then class starts.
Grace is into it, still timid as usual, but paying her usual furrowed-brow attention, and not moving fast enough to the side that Kaitlyn doesn't bump into her a few times. Neither of the girls are worried about it, none of the other moms would notice, but to Jackie: that's other people in your space. That's an invasion. She asks Kaitlyn to spread out and stop crowding her a few times, but there's nothing really to be done: Grace moves slow, and Kaitlyn doesn't care. Her mother is no help, because her mother knows something Jackie's about to learn for the first time: "The steps travel, that's how it goes. If she's not moving..."
The first ring Fiona picks out, from the not-too-unctuous jewelry store guy, is a bit much. After all, he says, Jackie's not that fancy. "Yes she is!" Fiona yells, because fancy is awesome, and Kevin agrees with her, while silently shaking his head at the man, dramatically, to demonstrate just how radically unfancy his wife actually is. The hair alone! Fiona then decides they should get many rings, and Kevin talks her down to one, that they both love. Fiona asks if it's for Jackie's broken finger, which is a larger question than either of them understand, and she holds it up, in the light. It is just fancy enough.
