Thanks to Claire's message, Sam was able to pick Maria up from where she'd run off to, and he'd given in to her pleading for pizza since, if he couldn't be surprised by her bringing food back to their room, at least Peter could be. If nothing else, spending time with Maria got Sam's mind off of his conversation with Dean, and any thoughts of universes where he was the worst father ever.
"Hey," he said in greeting to Peter, shoving the door open with his hip as he held onto pizza boxes with one hand and Maria with the other. "Tell me you've been behaving yourself in my absence, or I'm blaming the money missing from my wallet on you."
