In town, Bonnie tells Dusty she saw a baby. Dusty thinks that it was Eliza, but Bonnie says a worker was blase about the baby so she assumed it could not be her. She asks Dusty if he has a picture. He replies he knows how to get one. They approach the sheriff again and apologize for being pushy. They ask if he can help get a picture of the kidnapped baby for them. The sheriff returns with a picture of Paul and Eliza and Bonnie says that it was Eliza in the store.
At home, Luke tells Noah they had a sad afternoon. Noah tells him he has been to many services on the base. Luke thinks maybe Noah's movie should be about his life growing up on army bases.
