** To elaborate - [[spoiler: Mark is a clone of Miles created by enemies of the family to kill and replace Miles in order to get at Aral. Mark rebels and at the age of 21 or so is adopted into the family, well...yeah. In this scene, just two years later, a friend of Aral's starts complaining about "your son," and Aral's first reaction is to ask "which one?"]] To be sure, he'd ''deliberately'' referred to Mark that way before; ''this'' was totally offhand. Considering Kou ''was'' referring to Mark, it's doubly heartwarming.
