Whether or not Taylor can qualify to become her guardian depends on income and stability. Lou Ann becomes angry at this news, and tells Taylor that she must fight for Turtle. When Taylor appears ready to give up the fight, Lou Ann says that "I thought we were best friends, but now I don't hardly know who in the heck you are." Lou Ann tells her a story about Bonita Jankenhorn, who was the smartest and gutsiest person she knew, doing crossword puzzles in an ink pen. But when Lou Ann met Taylor, she knew that Bonita Jankenhorn had more than met her match.
