I loved this scene too.  With Bobby actually sounding like he cared about his
father and talking to his mother like a human being right before.  ~"Dad is
weird, but he has more going on upstairs than most folks."  When the major
reappeared he told Bobby to put out his cigarette and he DID.  Then asked for a
stiff martini which Bobby went to get.  Different from the Bobby who needed a
smack to lose the cigaratte into mom's cake...

for some reason I just thought of "Time is out of joint." from Hamlet with
regards to things being not alright....

I too missed him this episode.  His insanity seems to be more innocent than
Ben's or the other folks' in TP-land.
