Later on that night, Hazel brings out a bottle of amaretto to help everyone get in the mood for Nathan's party. Alexander sits quietly at the kitchen table, and turns down the offer of a drink, and Stuart tells them to have fun, as he'll be babysitting Alfred while they're at Via Fossa. "You should bring Alfred. It's a kids' party -- [Jell-O] and ice cream!" Vince quips. When the doorbell rings, Alexander says it's for him, picks up his bag and answers the door. "Did somebody call for an ambulance?" a paramedic asks as the blue lights from the emergency vehicle flash. Alexander says it was him, hands her a bottle and says he only took the pills ten minutes ago. Hazel and Vince rush to the door. "He's only gone and done it again," Hazel says, going with Alexander in the ambulance to the hospital. "Stupid fucking cunt," Stuart spits, putting Alfred in his carrier and hauling him out to the Jeep. "Where are we going?" asks Vince, who's sitting in the passenger's seat. "Let's go tell his mother the good news," Stuart replies angrily.
At Via Fossa, Nathan is hoping for Stuart to show when Sandra appears, gives a wave and heads straight for the bar. He walks over and asks her if Stuart's coming, to which Sandra replies that unless it has to do with his dry cleaning, Stuart doesn't tell her anything. "But do you think he'll come?" Nathan presses. "Not if he's found something better, no," Sandra replies brightly.
