Ron is losing weight to address his back pain. Gene is helping by eating things that don’t adhere to his diet.
12:30 Gene is defensive re:homemade baby food: “I plan on making that.”
Ron points out she doesn’t cook otherwise. But also: “You’re just making mush.” Eeeek.
15:45 his job is low intensity; doesn’t see that changing for several years: “Being a dad is going to be my #1 priority.”
Gene retains her “child-like wonder”. Ron agrees.
