When asked why she was late, she tells him she is pregnant and was ill from morning sickness. He takes Nina to Manny's colleague's restaurant to recommend her for a waitressing position.

While they dine to wait for the response, Nina tells him she does not intend to proceed with her pregnancy and is seriously considering an abortion partly because the father is uninterested in supporting her and she is broke. When he returns, Manny rebukes him for flaking at work for Nina.

During the trip he persuades Nina to give up the unborn child for adoption, but she argues in favor of her bodily integrity. He takes Nina into the garage and shows her his old car which, a few years ago, he reveals he had been driving during the peak of his career as a soccer player and accidentally hit and killed a little girl. He was then sentenced to four years in prison for involuntary manslaughter.

After being released he tried unsuccessfully multiple times to reconcile with the girl's single mother, and the tragedy has since left him scarred for life. They tell her she is always welcome to stay at their house. The next day, before they each go their own way, Nina says she needs a friend to be there for her the next week. The girls exchange gifts: Nina gives Bella the teddy bear given to her by her father, while Bella hands Nina a seashell.
