In the photos with Nate and the Chenowiths, Billy looks way happier than his sister does, even, smiling raffishly at the camera. If "raffish" is understood to mean "unshaven." After that, Nate suggests that Claire take some shots of Ruth and George. Ruth tries to take George's wine glass from him, and it ends up all over the front of his shirt and jacket. Ruth goes to work on him with a napkin while he spreads his arms in resignation, whispering, "Sorry." Claire decides this moment of vulnerability is a good time for a few candid shots, but the third one shows Ruth turning furiously on Claire. "What are you doing? Have a little respect!" she yells, storming up to her daughter and smacking her sharply across the chops. "Oh my God," Claire says. George laughs nervously. "It's not funny," Ruth screeches, stomping away and leaving the mentally ill man standing alone near the edge of a cliff. "Oh my," he says.
Nate catches up with Ruth at the bar and asks what's going on. Ruth's still pissed at Claire: "She's always trying to make some sort of statement. This is her way of saying I'm the fool who has to take care of a crazy person for the rest of my life...I don't need a photograph to see that. I don't need my face shoved in it." Nate offers to get her some help (for George, or for her?), but Ruth is distraught, saying she's still the one who has to be there all the time, "because there's no one else!" Having secured a glass of seltzer, she heads back to George to finish cleaning him up. That one day of taking care of him at home has really worn her down, hasn't it? Or maybe she just misses her oranges.
David returns to the table he's sharing with Keith, carrying three pieces of wedding cake. Greedy. "Who's the third one for?" Keith asks. David says it's to go under their pillow, so they can dream of their future child. "Or just get frosting in our ears," Keith cracks, apparently forgetting that David has hair. David breaks the news that he wants to go ahead with the surrogate. When Keith suspiciously asks why, David shares what he learned from Nate: "Because you want your own child. I don't want to be the one who denies you that, I want to be the one who helps you to have what you want." Keith asks about the kids who need homes. "We could do both," David suggests. "I think we should do both." Keith asks which comes first. "Whichever shows up first." Keith: "What if they both show up at the same time?" "Then we'll be really busy," says David. Keith realizes David's serious. "All right then," he says, and they tuck into their wedding cake. Hey, save some for the kids, you guys! Those of us who've watched TV before can tell you that you're going to need it when you're inevitably hit by a veritable human snowdrift of thirty-seven children in one day.
