During the break, they scrounge up about a thousand candles, which are blazing away everywhere. Rick's busily trying to boil some water in the fireplace, and he asks Grace to search out more candles and the kerosene lamp in the garage. "This is like Little House on the Prairie or something," she mutters. Tiffany swats away Zoe's hand as the kid tries smoothing back her hair, snapping, "Zoe stop it! I don't like that!" Her head should start spinning in three...two...one. Zoe apologizes and looks hurt. Rick gently sends her on an errand to take her mind off it. Tiffany sweats and clenches and grits and groans and basically does a good job of convincing me that childbirth isn't something I'm eager to do. Grace stands, transfixed, and asks Lily if Tiffany is okay. Lily assures her that everything is normal. Tiffany whimpers that she's going to be sick. Grace rushes to find her a vessel to puke into, putting it under her just in time. I make a mental note to double my birth control dosage in the morning.
Eli surveys the gingerbread house, groaning dangerously under the weight of all its confectionery adornments. "I wouldn't put any more on there if I were you," he warns Jamie. Jamie snaps that he knows what he's doing. Drying the dishes, Judy watches the exchange and then cocks her head. She creeps out into the hallway to better hear Sam on his cell phone. He says, "He hates my place....Yeah, I know that's not your problem. But will you talk to him?...Oh, come on, that's so unfair." Judy creeps back into the kitchen just in time to watch Jamie pressing one last gumdrop onto the gingerbread roof. He pushes too hard and crushes the whole thing in his hands. And then he runs away. Jessie stands in the doorway, surveying the damage and trying not to hyperventilate. Then she starts crying and rushes out of the room, despite Karen's efforts to calm her. Karen stares at the gingerbread heap, muttering, "All right, what can we do? May...maybe we could just sing?" She tries to raise some support, but Eli crushes the suggestion and her feelings, saying, "No one wants a sing-along, Mom. No one ever wanted a sing-along." Seeing her face, he apologizes, but Karen waves it away, saying, "No, I just had too many expectations, that's all." Sam wanders in, announcing that Jamie is going to stay with him tonight, and sounding like he's been sentenced to walk the green mile. He realizes the kid's not there, and goes off in search of him.
