That's the point. Wallace don't know what to say to her as he obviously don't know her that well. The same thing happened in part 1 where she needed help with her husband. He's grasping for something to say at all and is inspired by the items on the table. The morale, I think, is that it's not important that you have something clever to say as long as you say anything nice.
