Julia and Griffin are stuck in a cab driven by Mr. Miyagi from The Karate Kid. I swear to God, I think that was him. Mr. Miyagi tells them that he doesn't understand what all the fuss is about, since most of the world isn't even on the same calendar as the United States. Griffin spots some fireworks and says that they are "perfect." Julia is brooding because she didn't find the answer to her question at the party, like the tarot card reader said she would, and now she can't get to see Thurber, so maybe her answer is "give it up already." I can see her point, because it's not like every writer in the world doesn't get rejected by publications, usually numerous times, before becoming a success. Oh, except that they do, and she should just get over herself.
Claudia suggests to Bailey that they not tell Owen about the dog. Bailey doesn't want to lie. Claudia suggests that they make up some story about an animal hospital or a dog farm to tell Owen. Bailey points out that Owen wouldn't buy it, and would have all sorts of questions they couldn't answer. Claudia says that Owen is only six, and asks if they can't "spare him this. Why does everything bad that happens have to be out in the open?" Bailey just stares at her, and then asks her what she's talking about. Claudia says she wants to let Owen be young a little longer, but Bailey wants to give Owen a chance to say goodbye. They enter the waiting room where Owen is feeding Diana. If they really want to give Owen a chance to be young a little longer, they wouldn't saddle him with the adult responsibility of watching over his infant niece, don't you think? Anyway, Bailey starts to explain about Thurber as we fade out.
The whole family (minus Daphne, who apparently isn't part of the family anyway) is standing in a park. Bailey says that this park was Thurber's "favorite place in the whole world" and asks if anyone wants to say anything. I like how they're pretending that any one of them ever took Thurber outside. Julia says that there's a nice view. Owen says that it's sad and he wishes Thurber was there. Bailey says, "Who says he's not?" Owen points out that Bailey is holding his ashes. Oh, the things that kids say! Then they all start talking about the different parts of the park that Thurber would love to be in, but it's really stupid so I'm not going to transcribe it. Owen suggests spreading his ashes everywhere. Then they all take a handful of doggy ashes. Call me squeamish, but that's a little gross. They each start spreading ashes around, and Claudia walks over to a tree where she pours out the ashes and cries.
