She says she is stalling, she doesn’t want to get out of the car. She goes on to say don’t think he is going to get a phone call from her anytime soon, he says the same for him. They kiss, they both tell each other they are not calling each other first.
Jack ends up calling her first and asks to see her the next day, she remembers that she is having dinner with her family at their friends tomorrow, she tells him he can come but it is at a country club and he has to wear a sport coat, but they have a few there. Jack says he is set.

Jack heads to a store to buy a sport jacket, this is the first time he meets Miguel who tells him that a sport coat will get him everywhere. Jack tells him that he just got back from Vietnam and doesn’t have a job yet to afford such a nice jacket. Miguel tells him to tuck the tag under, wear it, and bring it back the following week.
Jack is at dinner with Rebecca’s parents and the first thing her dad says is that he just heard that he returned from Vietnam. Jack gets some food on his jacket, he gets up to leave and asks his dad why he said that. Jack is back to the table and apologizes. He tells them about his family, says he had a litte brother and for two years he thought there was a monster living in his closet. His brother’s name was Nicky. He says that the monster wasn’t real, but his brother’s fear was real. He lost his brother in Vietnam.
