Johnny visits his doctor. He explains that he's worried about synaptic deterioration and a number of other brain problems. The doctor guesses that Johnny has been looking things up online again, and tells him that his brain hasn't changed. She thinks that his vision triggered some anxiety, and that he needs to get out of the house and have some fun, because "it's hard to disappear when you're around people." Johnny agrees and asks if she has any plans that night. She apologizes and says she does, but asks him to try again sometime. She says that Johnny must have someone who would enjoy his company. Johnny says he actually does.
Cut to Johnny knocking on Mr. Grissom's door. Grissom opens it and Johnny introduces himself. Grissom laughs and asks how Johnny knows his name. Johnny explains about the Great Capers Caper. Grissom asks the deliveryman's name and guesses that Johnny was going to make veal piccata; he then asks if Johnny knows how they get veal, like what is he, in PeTA or something? Grissom says he returned the capers, and then asks if Johnny plays chess. Johnny says he does, so Grissom invites him in.
Johnny and Grissom walk into the house. Grissom says he was afraid Johnny was the mailman, and then explains that he doesn't like the mailman because when all your friends are dead, you only get junk mail. Well, that's cheery. Grissom says that Johnny is "awfully young to need one of these," and holds up his own walking stick. Johnny explains about the car accident, but leaves out the coma and the visions and such. Grissom offers Johnny some wine ("a dry Rioja"), but Johnny wants a Diet Pepsi. Grissom shoots him a look, so Johnny agrees to the glass of wine. Grissom pours it while babbling that he debates opening bottles of wine since he lives alone and won't finish them. Johnny notices a record playing some '40s-type music. When Johnny takes the glass of wine, he has a vision of Grissom disappearing in much the same way Johnny did earlier. Johnny snaps out of it, and Grissom asks if anything is wrong. Johnny explains that since his accident, he "go[es] away for a few moments from time to time." Grissom laughs and agrees. Johnny examines his glass of wine and then studies a framed photograph on a table. Grissom explains that it's a picture of the house where he was born, and that he retired to Maine in hopes of finding it again, but then his health began to fail and he never got the chance. Johnny offers to help Grissom look for it.
