Lily lands a job with the Atomic Testing Office and can't tell Jack, or the girls when the military is conducting atomic-bomb testing in the desert region nearby. This angers and frustrates Jack, who takes his anger out on Rose many times.

When Rose runs away it is Jack who shows the most courage and concern.
