  • Sutter is actually at Holly's house, talking about their dad.
  • She doesn't really want to talk about him, but he brings up a bunch of good memories they have of him as kids.
  • Eventually, she tells him she didn't want to talk about him because she didn't want Sutter to turn out like him.
  • Apparently, their mom caught him with the neighbor in the act – in his car, parked in their own driveway!
  • Sutter doesn't believe it, so they start arguing.
