During her absence Emily Jones finishes the chore that Dorothy assigned her to which was cleaning out the flower bed. She returns home running over Barrett Jones's vermanoids game by accident. Later she reminds Emily that even Barrett is lamenting over his broken game and Emily's appreciation of nature may not be helping as she was talking about the crow that destroyed his game.
During her next appearance in #699: “Emily the Genius”, she and Simon call a family meeting to talk about the letter stating Emily's high scores during the standardized testing. In the process she gets emotional several times because of her motherly pride. Emily later states that Dorothy told several people she interacted with about Emily's high scores.
