"If anything, it's like she's a little pony and I'm the stable boy, offering her some of my carrot." -Tom
He takes his new car to get lunch with Ally. She suggests a food truck called the Lucky Leprechaun: "Maybe you know somebody in there?" Over questionable corned beef, Tom learns that Ally is a writer who moved to California from Connecticut with her boyfriend, but she's newly single and works at a bookstore. Tom shares how tracing his family tree has allowed him to meet "all these interesting and fairly close to mentally unstable relatives." He kisses her goodbye on both cheeks and is pleased with how the date went.
Tom visits a genealogical research center where he gets a copy of his great-great-grandparents' marriage certificate. Tom notices Rebecca's last name is not listed and the records clerk explains this may be because she was Native American. The clerk suggests visiting the Mojave Indian Reservation near Barstow.
