Teddy wakes up from a night of binge drinking. His wedding band is missing, and his fist is bloodied. When he cannot find his wife, Molly, he visits his mother-in-law's house. There, Molly's mother, Angela, and her brother, Gordon, explain that she wants nothing to do with him, as he beat her severely while drunk. Teddy protests that he does not remember the incident and calls out an apology to Molly. Angela and Gordon warn him off; to their consternation, Molly leaves with Teddy, though she warns him that it is not a reconciliation. She is only returning to the house, not to their relationship. At the same time, Angela berates Gordon for not sticking up more for his sister.
