Back at home, Elaine is cooking up some "soy cutlets" for the family. William doesn't exactly look ecstatic. But, really—who wouldn't be ecstatic about some good ol' soy cutlets?
At this moment, William's sister Anita appears at the door. Anita and her mother share a tense dialogue, and we discover that Anita was trying to sneak in a record. The record in question is Bookends by Simon and Garfunkel.
Elaine has banned rock music in the household because she views it to be a corrupting force.
"Simon and Garfunkel are poetry," Anita protests.
"The poetry of drugs and promiscuous sex," Elaine responds.
The argument reaches a tipping point, and Anita storms off in a huff. "This is a house of lies!" she declares. William does his best to keep out of the middle of the conflict.
