After preparing her own dinner, Amélie sees the glass man eating alone, but she mimics him snidely, based on his comments about the girl in the painting, saying, "She can't relate to other people. She was always a lonely child." She eats her dinner alone in front of the TV.
Amélie imagines herself on TV, a national hero for whose funeral hundreds of people show up. The TV celebrates her life's work—washing the feet of the blind, taking people in wheelchairs on world tours.
But Amélie feels guilty for not convincing her father to stop mourning and get out of the house.
Amélie goes to her father's house in the middle of the night… and she steals his gnome.
That night, she has to sleep in the photo booth at the train station because the last train leaves before she arrives.
