Rose is upset because Miles has become quite tight (with money) lately. She doesn’t know what to do. Blanche suggests that she “cheat” on Miles, which in this case means dinner with Blanche’s rich friends from Texas. Dinner goes well at first. Rose is thrilled that she can have two Diet Cokes and eat at a restaurant where she doesn’t have to be waited on by someone wearing a pirate’s hat. But Miles ends up seeing her there. He asks how she could do this. Rose says she just wanted to come to the restaurant. Miles eventually storms out of the restaurant.
Dorothy goes away on a cruise with Dr. Kagan and puts Blanche in charge of looking after Sophia. Sophia is trouble right from the start. She starts going through Dorothy’s things and comes across a list she made over sixty years ago. One of the items on the list was to make amends with Guido Spirelli, Sophia’s first husband. She had the marriage annulled and “left him a broken man.” She ends up going to Sicily to find him. She does and he says to forget about it, literally. Blanche is panic stricken because she wasn’t aware of this. Thankfully Sophia returns home just after Dorothy does. Miles and Rose go to the restaurant. He explains that he was told that he’s probably going to live to be 100 but is only budgeted to live until 80. He’s worried about not having anything left. Rose understands and the two come to an agreement.
