    Throughout the novel there are moments like this one at the waterfall, scenes that prove the bond between fathers and sons still exist in this new world. They come upon a waterfall and the man and boy swim together, the man teaching the boy how to float. Everything seems to be going well; Gabbie has a job at a pastry shop, but loses it when she defends a child whose mother dislocates her arm in a fit of impatience. From dispatch, to maintenance, to driver coaching.

    He does not have a job and is constantly after Gabbie to give him money. Later that night, the man and Ely talk about the old world, about death, God, and the future — particularly, about what it would be like to be the last human on the planet. The boy is very concerned with making sure they are "carrying the fire," assuring himself that he and his father are the good guys as opposed to the bad guys who eat dogs and other people. In the basement, the man and boy find naked people who are being kept alive for others to eat.

    Gabbie also meets a new tenant named Steve Porter in the boarding house. They like each other. They are running low on food, and the man is fighting a bad cough, one that sprays blood on the gray snow. This is hard for the man to accept.
