Sam's worried. Adam's surgery is tricky.
Cassie assures him Adam couldn't be in better hands. Then she shows him the card from Professor Alicia Barnes. Cassie has an interview for a temporary teaching position. It's finally a time when she's unsure of herself.
Oh my. So much for mini-Martha. She's so much like her, but there is a lot they haven't shared with Martha and Tom, including the sex of their baby.

Cassie doesn't get the job. She's disappointed, but Joy brought sausage and peppers pizza to soothe the ache.
