A husband and wife are arguing, the husband is drunk and wants his alcohol back. A sleeping man nearby has it and Sparrow gets the bottle. He/she can give it to the wife or man. The wine bottle has one of the warrants stuck on the top.
Monty has fallen in love with a female but the mother doesn't approve. He wants Sparrow to give a love letter to the female, but Sparrow can give it to the mother instead.

After buying the music box, it disappears. Rose and Sparrow go to bed with the dog, who appeared at where they were. That night, Rose is woken by several guards who want to take her to Fairfax Manor. She wakes up Sparrow and they go together to the Manor. They walk through the entrance hall to Lucien Fairfax. After Sparrow and Rose stand on an object in his office, Lucien attempts to join them but a force field prevents him.
