Rose Forrester was too old to be lying on her car's front seat spying on her first love. She even had a husband and a teenage daughter waiting for her at home.

Rose is hiding from the truth of her daughter's paternity; Everett is hiding the truth about his diagnosis; Valley is hiding the truth of her teenage escapades. Even the dog Kansas is hiding the truth about her pregnancy to some degree.
