After a commercial, we come back to the home that dysfunctional alcoholism built. Mia Farrow is up early as Faith arrives from work. Mia's in a ratty robe, rooting around in the kitchen for 325 juice boxes to give to all the kids in the house. Faith is wearing a leather jacket and looking all tough. Mia asks her if the reason she came was to upset her father. "Because if you, if that, if you, that's why, if you," Mia stutters, since she was probably told twenty years ago that it constitutes an acting style, "they we, you know, I, we, you, they, it, um, if you came here for that, well, you know, we, you know, we just don't want you around." You tell her! Then she accuses Faith of being holier-than-thou and her entire generation of wallowing in misery. "Just get over it," Mia whines. "Get over the bad. Get on with the good." Which, incidentally, is the name of her next Woody-slamming memoir. Faith counters with, "Maybe that's why you all are drunks." It is at this moment that any member of my family would have gone to get the belt. "You shouldn't judge people," Mia says. "He, I, he, we, may not be perfect." Then she says that she only drinks ginger ale. "You know nothing," she concludes. Mia has lain the passive-aggressive smackdown. Faith, shattered, finally asks what's wrong with herself. Mia suggests that she needs to stop blaming other people. They're sitting in the kitchen having a moment. Faith says that she feels that if she doesn't hold everything together, it will all fall apart. "Maybe it's meant to fall apart," Mia says. Then she pulls out a copy of her book, Things Fall Away.
At the house of Larry Miller look-alikes, Faith arrives carrying her bags while Fred is sitting reading the paper. She offers to take the kids to school. Fred is sullen. He asks where she slept. She tells him. "You're not anything like my father," Yokas suddenly says. Faith goes into Emily's room. "What are you doing here?" Emily asks. Faith says that she was checking to see whether they're okay. "We're fine," Emily says. On the way to school, Fred is being great with the kids, giving them hugs and kisses. Faith tells the kids to move along so that she may talk to Fred. She admits that she was wrong. Fred says that this is not a small deal and that she should check out Al-Anon. She resists. Fred tells her that she should go and gets angry. He takes off.
