John and Sarah pull up to wherever it is they're going, and here's hoping John didn't whine the whole time about not being able to get a good signal on the radio. "What is this place?" John asks as they get out of the truck. Sarah doesn't answer him as she gets the keys out, and we see a little bungalow with a lighthouse behind it. They walk in, and Sarah presses a couple of buttons on a keypad by the door, and strides into the house. John looks around the furnished house, and sees a computer desk with a couple of monitors displaying what looks like security camera footage from around the building.
A golden lab comes trotting out from around the corner, happily wagging its tail and not at all going for John's throat, like nice guard dog. John plays with the dog and says, "Who lives here?" and his mom is not answering him at all, but he gets his answer soon enough, which he'd already know if he'd gotten to watch the "previously on Terminator" scenes at the top of the hour. Charley Dixon comes in, and the sad thing is that I now mainly associate him with 30 Rock and I just start cracking up. He should just do comedy all the time. John hugs Charley, and bursts into tears because his arm is all bruised and sore from his mom kicking his ass at "Bug bash" or whatever all day, and Sarah looks gloomily at the two of them.
So then Charley is giving John some bouillabaisse, which John has never had before, but he says it's very good, and Charley tells him "The secret is fresh tomatoes," which Charley grew himself, and John thinks it's funny that Charley grows tomatoes, like how people do not just smack John upside the head twenty-four hours a day is completely beyond me, and Charley says he's got a lot of time on his hands: "Might as well put it to good use." He's also found all 120 stars on Super Mario Galaxy and is playing as Luigi now!
Sarah comes in and walks past them into another room without saying a word. "She's been here before," says John. "Not with me," says Charley, adding that Sarah set this place up after his wife died. "She tell you why we're here?" asks John, and Charley says no. Does it really matter? How much worse could it get for this guy? Well, I guess we'll see.
