The Gorgas make their way inside, where Joe gives Gia a huge hug. Juicy looks on angrily. He heads back to the kitchen, where Teresa asks him if he said hi to Joe and Melissa. Frankly, it's a stupid question and a bad idea. These two men clearly hate each other, so why not just keep their interaction minimal? Trying to appear polite is ill-advised when the gesture is inevitably going to result in an amateur ultimate fighting match. Rich is not helping things, as he and Joe stand outside and make fun of Juicy's chipped tooth and joke around about knocking out some more of his teeth. I say if they're going to make fun of anything, it really should be his choice to wear a chef's hat. The guys head back inside as Juicy teaches the kids how to make their own personal pizzas. For now, the violent impulses are being kept at bay, and Kathy hopes it stays that way. She thinks the guys should realize that they would, in fact, be a lot stronger if they could control themselves
The demonstration continues until Milania has had enough of rolling out dough, spreading sauce, and sprinkling cheese. She says simply, "I hate it," and they're on to the next. Teresa has "made" (more likely ordered) a pizza cake, and Milania invites her cousin Antonia to blow out the candles with her. After that, Gia presents her surprise -- a song she has written for her sister. And now I'm going to show y'all how strong I am by not making fun of lyrics including "First you were born, then you were two, then you were three, then you were four, now you are fiiiiiive!" The song even includes gymnastics pointers! The adults all smile, and it gets a big round of applause.
Then Gia tells everyone she made up a song for Teresa and Joe. Anyone who knows anything is all, "Abort! Abort!" Gia soldiers on, but she doesn't even get a full line into the song before bursting into tears. Joe comes over to comfort her so she can get through it. She starts to sing the song in earnest, and it's basically about how Teresa and Joe's rift is giving her clinical depression (ex. "Worrying and worrying, it is just too much, it is just too much"). It's really sad and super-uncomfortable. After she finishes, the silence hangs in the air for several seconds before people realize they need to pick their chins up off the ground and clap for the girl who just poured her heart out. Joe holds her tight and tells her how much he loves and appreciates her. Outside, he admits seeing that his fighting with Teresa is having an effect on his goddaughter. He hopes her song will serve as a wake-up call. Everyone agrees it's a cry for help. Caroline says it's tragic and adds hopefully, "Maybe the children will teach them how to act like adults."
