Cara came to see me.


Oh, that's wonderful.

How is she?

The same.

Maybe more so.

Well, I'm sure the advertising

world is stressful.

She's a real go-getter,

that girl.

She always has been.

Where is she?

In town.

Anything to avoid

my turtles.


Well, this might come as a shock

but not everyone

in the universe wants to spend

their day

staking turtle's nests.

Well, I don't know why not.

Especially my own daughter.

That apple rolled

far from this tree.

The nest is right over here.

Look at that.

Yes, it's beautiful.

Isn't that wonderful?

Can you believe it?

It's huge.

Ok, here we go.

Now, where did you

put those eggs?

Be careful.

Ok, it's not there.

Try the center.




Oh, that's fabulous.

I just love it.

[blender sounds]



Oh, you're Caretta.

Sorry, I recognized you

from your photos.

Just making Mama Lovie

her green smoothie.

Mama Lovie?

Uh, yeah... just a silly

little thing.

I call her Mama Lovie

and she calls me Mama Toy.

'Cause I'm expecting.

I see that.

Do you mind taking this

to her for me?

I'm just gonna head off

to my room.

It was nice meeting you.

Your room?

What room?

Uh, Palmer's room.

Palmer's room.


Toy's only 20 years old.

Alone and pregnant.

She's like a companion.

She helps me out

and I help her out.

So you asked her

to move in with you?

Why not?

No one else is using

those rooms.

Besides, she has no family.

What about the baby's father?

A bolter.

Gone like the wind.

Flo heard about her situation

and thought I could use

some help.

She's a sweet girl.

I didn't know you

like green juices.


I don't.

But Toy thinks they're good

for me

and I don't want to hurt

her feelings.

[phone rings]

Oh honey, can you

go get that, please?
