Dean and Celia package up their makeup/pot sachets -- "dimes in the lipsticks, eighths in the compacts, half-ounces in the eyeshadow kit" -- and he gets a little flirty with her. She reminds him to break the news to Silas and Doug before the swelling goes down, and he exposits that she fractured his cheekbone. She coyly admits that she's been working out, since the garage she's squatting in has all that workout equipment, and he appreciates her current physical form, so she flirts right back.
Doug harasses the mohel about his smashed penis, and says he can't see a doctor because he hasn't got insurance, and that he's been taping it to popsicle sticks. "It's turning blue!" he whines, and the guy gets the eff away from him. "Try cherry." I'm so sure, Doug.
Andy and Nancy are cuddling the baby on the couch when Esteban walks in, and she congratulates Andy on the bris: "Now he looks like his daddy!" she says, and Andy grins. "Yeah! And you too, from what I hear," he says, unable to help himself: "But slightly smaller." Esteban, on the way to ruling out Andy as the new daddy, says that no way is his son Jewish, but that pig's out of the barn. "It's an ancient and scholarly religion!" Nancy says nastily, fake-brightly, the one face she makes that I can't love her past: "Disproportionate numbers of Nobel Prize winners..." He could have been that anyway. Whip-smart, all three of his parents.
"Meet my son," Andy says meaningfully: "Avi Melech." Nancy nods, staring right into Esteban's eyes, begging him to hear her: "Avi means 'my father.' And Melech, 'the king.'" He's still your son, she's saying. Even his Hebrew name tells you where he came from. You can still have us, she's saying. Can he hear it? "In English, Stephen Ray Botwin," Andy says -- in Spanish, Esteban Rey.
Does Esteban hear that? Does Andy even know, or did she slip it by him too? Two names, and both of them are a love letter and an apology and the promise that they can work this out. Their son is still between them, theirs alone, even with the cavalry called in and the bris accomplished: he's still the thing that unites them. "Stevie Ray," Andy says, which is enough to make my head spin, and offers Esteban a bagel. Esteban asks her to come speak with him, and she's irritated with him, and afraid, and so angry. She's got those Daredevil Girl eyes happening as she follows him out onto the porch.
