Advertisement - Guide continues below
- Alan and Zahra end their disastrous lovemaking attempt by drinking lots of wine. Lots of it.
- It's clear that they may never hook up again, what with their schedules.
- Alan recalls Zahra's problematic teenage son and tells her a story that he thinks will help.
- It's about the time Alan's dad took him camping without any equipment in freezing weather. His dad did it to encourage Alan to be self-reliant, to think on his feet.
- Alan had to find shelter and warmth for them both. Zahra thinks Alan's dad was nuts. She thinks the story is rather sad—not at all inspirational.
