Baby store. Cheryl is excitedly tripping through the aisles while Kima trails after her like the sullen teenager she apparently turns into whenever this baby comes up. Cheryl's freaking out over strollers and video monitors, while Kima makes no effort even to pretend to give a shit. Cheryl starts cooing over a Blue's Clues juice box holder, and Kima drawls, "If a kid can't hold on to a little old box without no help, we got problems." And...um, seriously. Please tell me that's a product without a market. Cheryl's smile starts to fade as it finally dawns on her that if she really wants to be a mother, she's going to need to find another lady who wants the same thing, because Kima clearly, CLEARLY does not. She sadly puts the juice box holder back on the rack and turns to Kima, laying it out, at last: "This baby is gonna come out of my belly and need both of us, forever. You understand?" Kima stares back at her stonily. Cheryl goes on: "I mean, it may not be real for you yet, but goddammit, it's real for me." Kima blinks and looks a little chastened, and as Cheryl walks up the aisle, Kima shakes her head; if there's going to be a reckoning on this issue, it won't be happening in the baby store, because that would just be too depressing. It really should happen soon, though, you guys, for real.
Motel. Aimee, post-shower, is combing her wet hair in the bathroom while Nick and Ashley sit on the bed watching cartoons. After a moment, Aimee comes into the bedroom and calls Nick's name a couple of times, but as he sits there stroking Ashley's hair, it's clear that he's staring through the TV, lost in thought. Impatiently, Aimee asks what's going to happen, but Nick doesn't hear that, either.
As if we're stepping into one of Nick's happiest memories, the next thing we see is the Port of Baltimore, where Horseface and Johnny Fifty discuss a container. Johnny Fifty explains that it's "a hot box," but that there isn't anyone to pick it up. Horseface asks where it's from, and Johnny Fifty tells him it's from Le Havre, except he pronounces it "Lee Harvey." Heh. But the origin, garbled or not, means something to Horseface, who angrily tells Johnny Fifty to dump it and stalks off. Johnny Fifty punches something into his handheld tracker and heads off in the opposite direction.
