The worst thing ever happens at dinner that night: Mom gets a call from a family that wants to switch piano lessons from Mondays to Tuesdays… meaning Moose can't play baseball on Tuesdays now. Ugh.
Moose is fuming. He shuts himself in his room until he hears his mom leave the kitchen. She comes out of the bathroom sooner than he anticipates, though, and tries to apologize. She even suggests alternate ideas, like playing catch with Annie… or Natalie. As if.
Moose pleads his case one more time, and his mom disappears into her room without answering.
