Tina then talks about how she's intuiting that these folks have gotten together to heal, and want to forgive but are having a hard time. So, Tina has now proven that she's watched seasons three and four of the show. She goes on to say that something has been misconstrued between them, and there are accusations. This is indeed true, and Tina likens it to a game of telephone where the message gets mixed up. Quoth Teresa: "Even the dead is telling Melissa that I had nothing to do with these rumors." Listen to the dead people, says Teresa! There's a strong message that blood is thicker than water, and Tina wants them to have each others' backs. Wouldn't you love to see a showdown between Tina and Dr. V.?
Just when you think Tina's got nothing, she asks about someone who died of some sort of heart failure, the leading cause of death for everyone everywhere. Rich says his dad passed away from congestive heart failure. Dead dad says that Rich often wonders if he's okay, and wants him to know that he's doing just fine. He also mentions old videos or old film, and Rich starts crying as he says that his dad is in old wedding videos. Richie's dead dad wants him to get them out and watch them, because he'll be there for the 6:30 show. A less snarky Rich interviews that he hasn't been able to watch that video for 12 years, adding that his beloved dad's death was a heartbreaking affair. He cries in the interview, and continues to cry with Tina. Rich's dad is proud of him, and thanks him for taking good care of him. Tina adds, "He calls you a daughter," and Kathy busts in to say he made her feel like that. Juicy then shows rather impeccable timing as he interjects that he thought dead dad was calling Rich a daughter. Dead dad appreciates the humor, reports Tina.
Tina then asks who had cancer in the front of their body. When there are no takers, she refines this to lung cancer from smoking. Kathy starts crying because her dad fits the bill, and Tina asks if he had trouble walking. He's showing that his legs hurt, or that he had trouble moving. Rich gets chills, and Rosie starts crying too. It turns out their dad had a lot of pain in his legs when he got really sick. Teresa asks an upset Kathy if she wants Tina to stop, but Kathy wants to hear what her dad has to say. This dead dad says that his legs are fine now, and he can dance. He also says that "she" talks to him all the time, and he hears her, and that "she's my girl." There's also a very specific message that he loves them and doesn't want them to be afraid, because he would have thought this was a bunch of crap. Everyone laughs, because this last remark is in character. With Richie converted to a believer, Tina takes her leave. Richie cries again in an interview as he says he spent every day of his dad's last fifteen years with him, and that family feuds are stupid. He's planning on watching that wedding video now, too. Things lighten up for a minute when Al falls asleep in his chair and Juicy and Rich place cannolis on him creatively, until Kathy yells at them.
