Unable to cope with the bad news, Willy saunters into the restaurant bathroom where he drifts into his fantasy world again.  This time it's a flashback to Biff's high school days.  It seems Biff has just flunked math and will not graduate from high school.  Soon Willy relives the terrible hotel room scene where Biff walked in on him and another woman.
Going back out to the table, Biff berates Happy for feeling no compassion for Willy.  He begs his brother to forget the girls (the woman and her friend) long enough to console his father.  It seems Happy tries to forget his problems by surrounding himself with women.  He leaves with the women, telling them that the babbling fool in the washroom isn't really his father.
