Beth's sitting out on Nina and Peter's porch by herself, averse as always to confrontation. Cameron comes out with the squalling baby attached to his chest, and says that the baby is having trouble breathing. Okay, when we learned that M. Small was allergic to carrots, it was because his reaction to them included having trouble breathing. So I know what an infant in respiratory distress sounds like. It most assuredly does not sound like an air raid siren. Beth puts her ear to the kid's mouth for some reason, like she's the one who needs to be struck deaf. Yeah, that's fair.
One ambulance transition shot later, Beth and Cameron are rushing into the Emergency Room behind paramedics and doctors. "Help him," Beth says. "He can't breathe." Like it just came up. They stand there looking worried as the docs go to work.
Back from commercials, Cameron asks what's wrong with the kid, and the doctor's initial diagnosis is "substance withdrawal." He goes back in to join the scrum of medical professionals, and no matter how crappy I think this show is -- and I do -- there's something heartbreaking about seeing all these doctors working on the kid, with no part of him visible except a tiny little hand waving a toy giraffe around. Shut up. I'm not made of stone, and I used to have a baby myself before he turned into a toddler.
Back at the party, the big fight has broken up into a bunch of little fights. Nina takes Peter aside and says that she doesn't want to "let Kimberly walk away from what's hers." Peter still thinks there are plenty of other ways that Kimberly's name could have ended up on the dollar. Yeah, maybe Sunny wrote it there. Shut up, Peter. Nina asks Peter why he's so eager to trust Sunny: "What is it about that girl that men never see her for what she is?" The fact that she's threatening to take away everyone's money? Peter accuses Nina of being jealous of Sunny, and Nina realizes what's going on: the money is bringing out the worst in everyone, including them. Thanks for the news flash.
Back out in the living room, the burly longhair is trying to intimidate Sunny and getting nowhere. Peter heads back in and a lawyer throws an arm around his shoulder, saying that this is starting to look like a twenty-way lawsuit, which is no way to start a new business. Addie says to nobody that either Kimberly or Sunny is lying, but either way she doesn't know what it has to do with them. From off-camera, some extra says that it's a shared win. Thanks for clearing that up, fifty-odd minutes in. Finally, Peter makes it to the front of the room and says that he's come up with a solution: "It's fair, it's quick, and it does it tonight." In short, he suggests that each winner give one twentieth of their share to Sunny. General consternation ensues. Peter says that it's only 5%, after which they'll close ranks. "Anybody makes a claim against one of us, they're making a claim against all of us." Uh, not unlike what's happening now? Most people don't want to give Sunny a dime, but Peter points out that it beats giving a third to the lawyers. Surprisingly, no lawyers object. He speechifies that the money has caused all manner of fighting among people who are supposed to be close: "Maybe none of you lay awake at night wondering what you did to deserve twenty million bucks, but I do.... If we're willing to go at each other like this over a piece of money that we don't even need? None of us deserves a dime." Nina's the first to smile. Amazingly, there is no slow-clap.
