Storyline

Betty continues trying to convince Patrice not to give Jeremy up for adoption after his christening. Their conversation leads to a discussion of Tony (Jeremy's late father) and Pat's memories of him, even a recent dream Pat had about him. Betty asks if she has been a good mother to her and Chris, hoping the answer will lead to Pat changing her mind. In Dr. Edward Sims's office, Edward and Matt have a discussion about Becky. Matt (who is black) says that times haven't really changed, meaning racial attitudes. Edward (who is white) asks if he knew that his daughter Becky was falling in love with him. Matt says he didn't, but his mother did. Edward is eager to make it clear that he doesn't return her affections. At the church, Fred and Louise have a private conversation about their dead child before the guests enter. During the christening, Matt sings and plays the guitar. Written by J. Spurlin
