However, when Jools gives an emotional speech about his dad, Stephen becomes distressed and excuses himself to the restroom. Carla and Lou observe his behavior. Stephen is shocked when Lou shows him a bag containing Rufus’ belongings, including Stephen’s tie pin. Lou mentions Rufus’ missing watch, prompting Peter to confess that he found it in his cab and pawned it for Carla’s rehab.
