The gun is missing from the pot on the right rear burner at the Doe house, replaced by an egg. John Doe accuses his teenage son, Jay, of taking it, which Jay denies. John tries to get his younger son, Johnny, to tell him if Jay has taken the gun, and eventually the truth, that Jay took the gun and threw it in the garbage, comes out. John retrieves the gun and tries to force Jay to return it to its rightful place.
