Back in the present day, Elizabeth opens the trunk of the car and makes sure he sees her face. "Remember me, Captain?" she asks. Perfect English.
After the break, the kids are home from school. Henry is explaining to his mom the ins and outs of the latest Archie comic, while Paige is talking about the paper she's writing on "How the Russians cheat at arms control." Obviously, this intrigues Elizabeth. "This is for Hendrickson's class?" she asks, probably filing the name away for future placement on her list of people who've been mean to mother Russia. He wonders aloud whether it's weird to listen to that guy lecture, what with his harelip. Unexpectedly mean! Paige, ever the PC American, chastises her mom for talking about a man's "handicap." Philip comes home and has Henry look out the window at the cool car he rented until they can use the Oldsmobile again. Because, you know, car trouble. He pulls Elizabeth aside and says he made the drop-off, but no word yet. Annoyed, she's like, "Maybe he can just move in with us."
Later, the family's on an outing for soft-serve ice cream. Philip is holding Paige's ice-cream cone in front of her, seeing if she can bite it before he bops her on the nose with it. It's a cute Dad Moment but also one that lets his tactical training side shine through. Elizabeth watches this all warily. She's the not-fun one, but some part of her can't help but smile at her kids. Still, when it comes time for her turn, she shuts Philip down. He even apologizes to her when he accidentally ice-creams her nose.
