Al and Alicia continue to fight. Alicia knocks into a cabinet, causing a supply of ramen to spill out. Alicia demands to know where Al got the ramen. Al explains that she traded the ramen for an interview. Alicia runs over to Al’s tapes and finds one labeled “Amina.”

In a flashback, Madison tells Al that when her children were young, they nursed a sick bird back to health and named it Amina. She says that her children’s determination to save the bird was a trait that they still possessed.
