Holden and Lily walk into Luke's classroom looking for Miss Hopkins who isn't there at the moment. Holden tells Lily that it probably isn't anything. Miss Hopkins comes in and is surprised that Lily is there to meet with her. She tells them that Luke hasn't wanted to leave school on some days. She tells them that she isn't a psycologist and that she thinks that Lily's intermittent absence has taken an affect on Luke. She shows them one of Luke's recent drawings. The picture shows Holden, Luke and Lily. Lily seems to be waving in the picture. She tells them that she thinks that Luke may feel unstable. She mentions Lily's absences in the past year - the long trip when she was on the island and her recent trip to the Galapogos Islands. Holden is in denial the entire time as he believes that she has no reason to say this, she's just Luke's teacher. Lily is interested in what she has to say. Miss Hopkins tells them that he also has no interest in reading, that Luke is distracted. Holden doesn't think that this is a problem as he didn't read until he was in 2nd grade and he didn't have any problems. Holden notices that there is a copy of the Intruder in Luke's file. He asks Miss Hopkins why it's in there. He tells her that it doesn't need to be in his file and that he isn't going to sit there and listen to her attack Lily. Lily interjects and tells him that it's okay. Holden tells her that it's not. It doesn't belong in a school file. He tells Miss Hopkins that she needs to see the real picture. He tells her that Lily gave him a taste of a different culture by bringing him to the Galapogos Islands. It hurt her to send him back home, but she knew he had to go back. He also tells her that Lily made sure to call every night. It doesn't matter if they live separately. They don't need a teacher who is a psycologist wanna be evaluating what is best for their son. Holden storms out the door. Lily apologizes and then leaves as well.
Holden and Lily are on their way back from the meeting with Luke's teacher and start arguing in the truck. Holden tells Lily to say whatever it is she has to say. She tells him that she'd rather not talk. He talks about the meeting with Miss Hopkins and that she thinks that Luke is a screwed up kid and that Lily is a screwed up mother. Lily insists that she didn't say that. Holden agrees, but that she was going to say that. Lily and Holden start arguing and the truck goes off the road. They get stuck in the mud, but both of them are okay. They start arguing again. Holden is upset with Lily and brings up Simon. That Simon is the reason that they are here right now. That it started with Lily going to Atlantic City and then when she was stuck on the island with Simon. Holden asks Lily how they got like this. Lily asks if he means stuck in the mud. Holden tells her he means their lives, this situation. He tells her that he remembers one thing. That he never stopped loving her. Lily tells him that that's what she needed to hear. They Kiss. The camera focuses on the letter that Rose slipped into Lily's purse.

Craig tells her that she just got rid of a man who isn't right for her. She looks at him and asks what she deserves. Craig tells her that she deserves a man who has a sense of humor, likes to be dangerous in bed and out, etc. She asks him if he's hitting on her. He tells her that he's being abstract.
