She says she doesn’t mean to sound cruel but no they didn’t. She says it was rough on them and on her Father. Adam tells Victoria he only came there for the job, he says he doesn’t want anything else. She says she is glad he had a place to go after losing his mother.

Sharon says she isn’t comfortable leaving Gloria and Jeffery in the house alone while they are gone though.
