- Sutter's in an awful mood now, and his driving is suffering.
- Aimee tries to cheer him up, but he's too upset.
- He tells her he's probably just like his dad, so why would she want to move to St. Louis with him? He has no future to give her.
- She tells him he has free will, that there's hope, but he thinks it's like a birth defect.
