Kate walks into Fred's bedroom and declares, "I don't wanna sleep alone tonight." Fred looks at her for a moment and says, "Ma, I...I can't." She strokes his hair and tells him, "Freddie, I don't wanna cuddle with you tonight, baby." She says to the man in the bed next to Fred, "Kevin, I want you." Kevin complains, "Well, we're all feeling kind of weird tonight, Ma." Kate paces, complaining about the woman she'd killed earlier. She sits on the bed and turns back to Kevin, "Kevin, I've been promising myself you for a long time. And I want you tonight!" as she slaps his thigh. Kevin wiggles his eyebrows at her, "Well, Honey, I'm ready." He walks out of the room hand-in-hand with Kate. Fred watches them walk off, then puts his cigar out in the palm of his hand.

Kate, Herman, Arthur
Peeping non-nude
Kate talks to Sam about his kidnapping and the difficulties getting the ransom. Kate says she didn't mean to keep him so long, and gives him some whiskey. She asks if he wants to sleep with her, but he says that he's married. She complains abstractly about the rich and propriety, saying that they don't have to pay attention to marriage vows. He says that he's tied up. She hypothetically proposes that she untie him and just keep his blindfold. He suggests that he could escape. She says that she could have her sons keep guard with a machine gun. He says that wouldn't be very romantic. She gives another speech about the rich, then leans down and kisses him. She tells him that they're getting attracted to each other and starts to pull off her clothes. The camera pans over to show Herman and Lloyd watching from the doorway.

Alone together in the car, Kate moves closer to Herman. She talks about his brothers being off-kilter. She says that he's her eldest child, and had to tie off his umbilical cord herself, "There isn't nothin' I wouldn't do for you, baby. There isn't nothin' I wouldn't protect you from." She leans forward and they kiss. She adds, "There's nobody I wouldn't kill for you." She says that his brothers are procrastinating killing Sam. She tells him to take care of things. He says he loves her and walks away.
