She smirks when she notices his mournful expression and tells him she knows nobody likes to think that someone wanted to abort them. But maybe he needs to nobody likes to think that they were raped either. He asks her why then she didnt just do it.

She tells him that surprisingly, at the time, her family saw her as the one not screwed up and least likely to get knocked up. And if anyone had found out Joe had done it, Sonny would probably have killed him, which actually is what should have happened. He asks her what, she did, given the circumstances. She tells him she pushed him out, got rid of him and then got the hell out of dodge. He seems sad to reflect that she left him. She tells him she left everything.
