Louie tells his friend how things between he and Amia have soured, remembering a day in which Amia left one of their dates and evaded Louie in the interior of a church. Inside, Louie attempts to communicate with her, lamenting that their earlier coupling might have made her ashamed. That night, Louie begs Ivanka to translate his feelings about her night together, though Amia grows irritated about having to discuss her sex life through her aunt, and smashes dishes, before Louie joins in.
Suddenly, the news brings the report that Hurricane Jasmine Forsythe has necessitated a mandatory evacuation below 23rd street, as Louie realizes that would put both Jasmine and his children in harm’s way. Louie attempts to call his ex-wife, though the mood downtown has shifted to panic, as Janet reveals that several of the windows have been shattered and Patrick is missing. Louie returns home, loading up on plastic bags and flashlights to begin the trek downtown, and renting a car from the surprisingly peaceful Hertz counter. Louie braves his way through the storm downtown, eventually finding Janet and the girls in their apartment, as Louie calms Janet down and helps evacuate the three to the car downstairs.
Some time after the hurricane passes, Amia takes Louie to a Hungarian restaurant, asking the waiter to act as a translator to read Louie a tender note. The waiter relays that Amia’s time with Louie has been a wonderful and unexpected adventure for her, one that could perhaps have led to love, though she has her own life and family back in Hungary, and couldn’t take her son away from his father. Hearing that Amia cherishes their time together and will always remember him, Louie cuts off the waiter to say that he agrees, and would perhaps have only traded their time together for one wherein they could have more easily communicated, something that moves the waiter to tears.
