Fiona's on her way out to dinner at Tony's, and all three of the kids laugh when she ducks into Lip and Ian's room to remind Ian and Mandy to keep it above the covers. Nothing is better than Lip when he's happy, but seeing Ian stretched out on the bed, Mandy drawing on one leg with a marker while they flip through some gay porn, is a total bonus. God bless the Gallaghers.
And Fiona makes it as far as Tony's block -- he's just coming back from the store with marshmallows, for his mom's famous ambrosia salad -- but something somebody said, or did, or maybe just a plan she didn't let herself know she was making, sends her walking off again. And when she shows up at Steve's chopshop in her prettiest dress, and she nearly whispers "Hi," and he turns around and sees her and almost can't smile, well, not even Tony could really have a problem with that: They're soldering behind him, so the sparks are flying, and her earrings catch the light: Those gold chandeliers, from the night he fell in love. The ones that made him smile.
