As the puzzled boys watch on, she accuses him of making the transaction out of sheer pettiness and he puts up a thin veneer of sympathy for her loss. Sarah assures a questioning Adam that she is sincere about accepting his proposal. With the front door locked, Michelle starts to smash up the bistro, while Carla tries to stop her wrecking someone else's property. She comforts Michelle as she breaks down.
