At breakfast Helen had been walking around and taking food off of other people's plates. Annie, after an exchange with the Captain, asks the family to leave so that she can try to teach Helen how to behave.

Annie tries to work with Helen, but Helen is being resistive. What results is a pretty intense physical fight between Annie and Helen (I think this is the scene that my classes always like best!). At the end Annie comes out with Helen, Helen rushes to her mother, but Annie proudly announces that Helen ate from her own plate with a spoon and then folded her napkin.
