Steffie's mother, a woman named Dana Breedlove, wants Steffie to visit her in Mexico City for Easter. Steffie says she can't go because she's volunteered for another simulated evacuation. Jack says they won't miss her this one time.
Jack reminisces about his marriage to Dana who—like his wife
Tweedy—was involved with the CIA.
At the university, Jack sits down for lunch with a bunch of
his colleagues and gets into a deep conversation about sex and death. Murray
Siskind seems to love the convo more than anyone.
