Adam explains how Lynette used ‘The Rainbow Bridge’ (from Thor mythology?) to help the kids deal with the loss, Adam is now talking about how seeing his son lose it made it him start to cry and shares a new theory about men seeing other men cry and that being more effective in making them cry in reaction, possibly because it doesn’t happen as commonly.
