The Bold Type (2017) s02e08 Episode Script

Plan B

1 Previously on "The Bold Type" Now that you are a department head, I really want you out there as the face of social.
I am "Scarlet" magazine's first black female department head.
I could write all about how my mom was dying from breast cancer when I was in kindergarten.
You are positive for a mutation in the BRCA1 gene.
Look, I made a mistake running around with Brooke Langley, and I just want you to know that I'm gonna do whatever it takes.
How cute is this guy? And he's a doctor.
What is your stance on pre-marital sex? I think we're good.
[acoustic music] I just saw in our magazine that this position is called a "Face-Off.
" What? Sorry, sometimes I just can't stop being a "Scarlet" writer.
Wait, it's really called "Face-Off"? - Like the Nic Cage movie? - Yeah.
Sorry.
I keep seeing Nicolas Cage's face.
A lil' better.
I think you're moving in too close But I think that, yes, my body wantin' it the most [both moaning] It's my emotions I'll What, are you seeing Nicolas Cage again? No, the condom broke.
When the panic in my mind feels so damn good Whoo! [groans] - Are you there yet? - No, not yet.
I still don't believe that they'd Postmate the morning-after pill.
That's because you live on the blissful island of Sappho where people don't have to worry about birth control.
Trust me, it's a thing.
Okay, well, it better be a thing.
Look, I really think you and I can handle this, Jane.
Oh, look, Ben.
You should know by now that we are a package deal.
You buy one; you get the other two for free.
Okay, when is this guy getting here? As long as you take it within 72 hours we're good.
Which means we still have 70 hours and 55 minutes.
- [knock at door] - Okay, that must be him.
Oh, Jane.
Turn your phone to face the computer so that when I say, "I told you so," I can see Kat's face.
Okay, I have to go.
Bye.
Told you it was a thing.
Delivery for Jane Sloan? - That's me.
- Oh, hi.
Dude at the pharmacy wanted me to tell you this: "Take it as soon as possible.
It will cause nausea, and please consider using a contraceptive in the future.
" Yeah, we were.
For the record, my girlfriend is very responsible, so Did you just call me your girlfriend? I did.
I hope that's okay.
Yeah, just you don't have to because the whole condom thing.
No.
No.
No.
I've actually wanted to for a while.
Can I officially call you my girlfriend? Yeah, you can.
[both laugh] Ah, hmm.
Please.
Please, take this.
Now.
Thank you.
- How you holding up? - [groans] These side effects are really kicking my ass.
Sorry.
You know, the same thing happened to me when I took the morning-after pill, but the good news is Oliver's in Paris so I can use his juicer.
And I can make you a mango, pineapple, turmeric smoothie.
- That didn't help.
- No.
- I'll take one.
- Okay.
Hey.
- Hey.
- Hi, what are you doing here? I'm actually I'm freelancing for "Porch & Garden.
" Hemp: it's the new corn.
Don't judge.
- Rough night? - No, not really.
Stomach flu? Pregnant? Morning-after pill? - [gasp] - Food pois Oh, okay.
Jane, wild woman.
Kat Edison? Hi.
I'm Cleo Williams.
I'm Safford's newest board member.
Oh, hi.
You know, you're a bit of a legend - up in the board room.
- Oh.
I was wondering if I could have a word with you.
- Sure.
- Great.
Great.
Kat, have you ever heard of Whole Spa? They make the cleansers with the rainbow labels, right? Yes, that's them.
They have a line of inclusive beauty products.
They also make it a point to cater to women of all ages and skin types.
And they've come to me with an opportunity for product integration.
Okay, so you want my team to start Insta-ing about them? Actually, they want you.
You would be the face of the campaign.
Me? Yes, they want to feature you in a series of Whole Spa Instagram stories.
Kat, you are the youngest head of a department at the magazine.
That is exactly the type of influencer that they want associated with their products.
Sorry, did you just call me an influencer? Listen, you are incredibly charismatic, and you really have this unique identity and story.
They just want to sit down with you this afternoon and have a little chat about the campaign.
Would that be okay? - Sure, okay.
- I will let them know.
Don't forget about us when you become a famous spokesperson.
I believe the term that she used was actually influencer.
Oh.
- Okay, this is pretty good.
- Yeah.
Told you not to doubt the turmeric mango smoothie.
So how long is Oliver in Paris for? Like, five days.
Well, I could get used to these.
Well, it's not all smoothies and espresso drinks.
I'm in charge of inventory, schedule, and the budget meeting today.
See, someone's back in Oliver's good graces.
- Hmm, it speaks.
- Yeah.
And it hurts.
I say this with love, but you look terrible.
I feel nauseous and my head hurts, and my boobs hurt, and I'm dizzy.
Is this normal? I think you should call your doctor because she will probably be able to prescribe you something to offset the side effects.
I don't need to call my doctor.
I am dating one.
She works it into literally Both: Every conversation.
Hello.
I'm right here.
Hello, Jane.
Do you think Ben got weird last night because of the religious stuff? No, it was fine.
He's Christian, not a character on "Handmaid's Tale.
" Hi.
Yeah, no, I'm still throwing up and stuff.
Any suggestions? Yeah.
Mm-hmm.
Okay.
Thanks.
Bye.
So what did he say? He said I should call my doctor and see if she could give me anything to fight the nausea.
Wow.
I'm not gonna say, "I told you so.
" - But we told you so.
- Okay.
I'm done with both of you.
- Hey.
- Hey.
So you ready for your first budget meeting? Yeah, got my little espresso and all this stuff.
Oliver said the hardest part is staying awake.
Actually he told me to smile and nod and not sit next to Bob.
He doesn't believe in deodorant.
Okay, let's get this party started.
First, with the good news.
The board has approved the expansion of the Paris issue.
Which means more of us can go to Paris for Fashion Week.
Of course they are going to extract a pound of flesh in exchange, and they're asking for cuts on the upcoming issue to cover the Paris overages.
So let's just rip that Band-Aid right off and start with Bob in distribution.
Can we cut 10% out of this month's budget? Yes.
Felicia, can you get 15% out of events? I can do 10%.
All right, and another 10% out of the fashion department this month.
Oh, that's right, Sutton, you're covering today, welcome.
I'm sure Oliver prepped you and, so, can we get 10% out? One second.
We need to talk about where that $20,000 went for travel - It's midnight in Paris; he's probably sleeping.
- Sutton, would be really great to get an answer before we have to put this issue to bed.
Well, he did say smile and nod.
Sure.
All right.
Great.
Great.
Onward.
Side effects should start subsiding soon.
I'm just gonna give you a prescription for some anti-nausea medication.
Just to be on the safe side.
Thank you.
I feel better already.
Wonderful, and this is probably a good time to start talking about your fertility plan.
Fertility plan? You need to be thinking about whether or not you want to have children.
[scoffs] But I'm only 25.
You're also a carrier of BRCA gene mutation.
- That is a game changer for you.
- Why? I've been doing all the screenings.
I know.
I know, but you should understand that the most effective preventative treatment involves - an oophorectomy.
- Oopherectomy? The medical term for having your ovaries removed.
You need to start thinking not just about prophylactic measures but what your reproductive plans are, long-term.
I-I don't understand.
If kids are in your future, you need to start thinking about it now.
So if I trim a couple hundred from the Marc Jacobs accessories spread, and I cut Thursday's "Divas and Dives" shoot budget in half I can make our new number.
- Look at you.
- Yeah.
Finally putting that finance degree to work.
Oh, no, what's wrong? - Fashion closet.
- Yeah.
Do you want me to come to the fashion closet too? Do you want to? I'm just gonna tell her about my appointment I just had with my gyno.
I'ma sit this one out.
Mm-hmm.
So you have to start thinking about having kids now? Sort of.
I have to start thinking about thinking about it.
Reese Witherspoon had a baby when she was 22.
Adele was 24.
And Lauren always told me that the best place to network was at those "Mommy and Me" play date things.
- That's not helping.
- No.
[sighs] Do you want kids? I don't know.
I always thought I might.
But it was like a distant future thing.
Like flying cars or needing Botox.
When I try to picture myself with kids, I just I can't.
Would you ever consider doing it alone? You know, like, with a sperm bank.
Like, with a turkey baster? Or how about the old-fashioned sperm delivery: Ben's penis.
- [laughs] - Okay.
It's a little too soon to be talking about that.
Ben just called me his girlfriend - for the first time last night.
- You made it official.
Which is why it's too soon to be putting this on him.
I haven't even told him about my BRCA status.
I need to figure out what I want before I drag him into it.
How you gonna do that? Well, I get paid to ask questions about things I want to know, so I guess I'll just do that.
I cannot tell you how thrilled we are about the prospect of working together.
Well, you actually can tell me 'cause you just did.
[chuckles] That's the edgy Kat Edison sensibility we're so excited about.
So what kind of Insta campaign were you guys thinking about? We want you to make the stories your own.
- Really? - We do.
You can riff on anything you want to.
All we ask if that you mention our cleansers and three things you like about them.
Well, I've actually never used Whole Spa products before.
You'll love them.
Organic, no animal testing, biodegradable packaging, totally carbon neutral.
We make products for women of all ages and colors.
Products designed to empower them, not make them feel like they need to live up to some artificial standard of beauty.
We just need you to give us permission to use your image.
- Here you go.
- Thank you.
Kat, you found a way to use your "Scarlet" platform to make strong feminist statements.
This is just a continuation of that journey.
Okay.
- Well, I'm sold.
- Great.
I want to be wowed.
Stalker or Rom Com hero? When is coming on strong, too strong? Didn't you write about the fine line between love and suffocation last month? Yes and no.
Might be time to ditch the clingy boyfriend.
Alex, what do you got for me? The intersectional appeal of Meghan Markle.
I love that.
Great.
Jane, what about you? You've been awfully quiet.
What do you got? I want to do a piece on 20-something-year-old mothers.
You know, how do they do it? How do they balance careers? Do they have a sex life? It's interesting, but I'm not sure it's right for you.
Well, I hear the best networking happens at those "Mommy and Me" classes.
So how about are babies the next must-have accessory for young professionals? Yeah, I like it.
It's good.
Go talk to some young moms.
[scoffs] Really? - Allow me.
- Hey.
Look who's a gentlemen.
I don't know what James told you about me, - but I do have manners.
- [groans] - And also unsuspected depth.
- Very unsuspected.
- Someone's birthday? - No, it's my swag actually.
I'm, like, a spokesperson for Whole Spa.
- You're a spokesmodel? - Spokesperson.
I'm just gonna be featured in some of their Instagram stories.
You're not the only one with surprising skills.
Whole Spa, huh? Why'd you say it like that? I have a friend who's doing a deep dive into the company, running an exposé on them for "Vice.
" Huh, what kind of exposé? Well, you know how supposedly they're super progressive? Turns out their CEO is a big donor to the Family Research Council and the Council of Conservative Citizens.
Aren't those, like, racist, anti-LGBTQ groups? Big time.
Now I know why they wanted me to do it so badly.
I mean, who better to inoculate the company when the story breaks than a queer black woman.
- Yeah.
- I see.
Sorry.
So they want you to be their black bi bandaid? To cover up their racist, homophobic boo-boo.
What are you gonna do? Sure as hell not gonna be their mascot.
[cell phone chimes] - Oliver? - Who else? Hey, Oliver, I just got your text.
The only thing is when you told me to nod, I just I thought that meant say yes, so I know.
I know, okay, well, bonsoir.
Long-distance, pissed-off Oliver is so much worse than up-close-and-personal, pissed-off Oliver.
He just found I want to cut the budget for the "Divas and Dive" shoot to make our new number.
I thought that was a good thing.
Well, the problem is now we can't afford the location, and shooting at Chad's was the only reason Oliver wanted to do the spread.
So basically it's my first budget meeting [chuckles] and I blew it.
Hey, so who wants to go on a field trip? - Where are we going? - Hecksher playground.
- I've been juicing.
- Thank you.
I found a play group of 20-something-year-old moms and their kids.
Cool.
Okay, are you gonna talk to some moms? 'Cause I have to go back to the office soon.
I just I want to watch for a little longer.
It's like Margaret Mead found a new tribe.
Yeah, breeders.
[laughs] Okay, I'm just trying to see if I can picture myself here.
Aren't you guys curious? No, not really, but then again I'm pretty sure I don't want kids, so Why not? I don't know, first of all, environmental reasons.
There are already too many of us and too few resources.
Yeah, I do, but I think it's cause my mom sucked.
You know, I'd love the opportunity to do better.
Give my kid or kids the childhood I never had.
I'm not seeing the allure of being a human Kleenex.
Okay, I'm going in.
- Excuse me, hi.
- Hi.
I'm a writer for "Scarlet" magazine, and I'm doing a story on 20-something-year-old moms and I was wondering if I could talk - to you for a few minutes? - Sure.
- She's beautiful.
- Thank you.
I work as a waitress at night so I have more time for Jacob during the day.
But, not gonna lie, I'm tired every minute of every day.
But then I look at his sweet face, and I know it's all worth it.
How has parenthood affected your relationship? My husband and I have to work at it more.
So we make sure to have at least two date nights a month.
How do you juggle it all? My mom.
I couldn't do it without her.
She takes the kids on our date nights and takes them on the weekends whenever she can so I can catch up on some work.
Mama! Help me.
Could you just hold him for a sec? I have to go catch Tilly.
I'm coming, Tilly.
Hey, Jane! - Jane, come over here! - This is so much fun! [laughter] - ["This Town" by Kygo] - [sighs] Wanna go out for dinner? I guess.
- Italian or Chinese? - I don't know.
Well, how about Burgers and Brews? Or Pauly G's or we could try that new place Maybe I don't want to have to choose.
Maybe I don't know what I want.
Are you still feeling nauseous from the morning-after pill? No, I'm just I'm just really stressed about this article.
What are you writing about? Just "Scarlet" stuff.
Totally get it.
I'll leave you alone.
I'm sorry, it's just writer's block and surging hormones are not a great combo.
If you do have a breakthrough, I'm not working till tomorrow afternoon, so Okay.
All of my friends are settling down - Bye.
- Bye.
[vocalizing] Let's get out of this town Hello, Jacqueline.
- Oh, hi, Sutton.
- Hi.
Is this a really bad time? Well, admittedly eyebrow threading is never a good time.
- [laughs] - What can I help you with? Remember when I said that the fashion department could cut 10% of their budget for next month's issue? I do.
Turns out we can't cut as much as I thought we could.
So I just need a little bit more money to make the "Divas and Dives" shoot tomorrow work.
Yeah, see, the problem, Sutton, is that the budget is already locked, and the time to ask for more money would have been at yesterday's meeting, which is why we had, you know, the meeting.
Of course.
It's just Oliver Yeah, Oliver always wants the moon, and, you know, you just don't always get the moon so so what else can you give him? [groans] I can't write this.
[sighs] You really have that much to say about Meghan Markle? Her marriage to Prince Harry made a strong progressive statement.
They even had eco-friendly flowers in their ceremony.
Good for them.
How is the "Babies are the new Bling" coming? It's coming.
So far all labor, no baby.
[groans] They only want me so that then when their CEO is ousted as a racist homophobe, he can point to me and say, "Oh, look, some of my best spokespeople are black lesbians.
" When I was negotiating the product integration deal, I had no idea.
You know, their image was so politically correct.
Okay, so can we just walk away? I've been looking over your contract for a way out, a morality clause or something like that, but there's nothing.
What are they going to do if I just refuse to post an Instagram story? For starters, they could sue us for breach of contract.
Which would be incredible expensive for Safford and a legal nightmare for the two of you.
I'm so sorry, Kat.
You really think Sutton's gonna get this place for free? I hope so.
She really needs it for this photo shoot.
Oh, well, she's smiling.
That's a good sign.
Yeah, but, see, her arms are crossed.
That's not really, "You can have your photo shoot here for free," kind of body language.
Oh, it looks like she's complimenting the place.
Wow, she's pulling out all the stops.
And how are you? Are you thinking about thinking about kids? No, because every time I start to think about it, I wind up feeling sick and having a panic attack and I just don't know how to get past it.
What about you? Have you figured out what you're gonna do - about the Whole Spa thing? - No.
I have to post my first Instagram story tomorrow and I'm still trying to figure out how I can get out of it.
But right now the best idea I have is to just bury it in basic hashtags.
Ooh.
The basic hashtag trick.
It's a good one.
- Hi, so? - What's up? No.
She said they can't afford to shut the place down for the shoot even if it's only for a couple of hours.
Why does Oliver have to have it here? You know, he bought his first beer here when he moved to the city.
So the whole shoot is kind of inspired by this place.
I mean, look at it.
It's It's like a movie set.
A set.
I use Whole Spa clean wipes in the middle of the day because it's a great pick me up.
My skin feels soft, hydrated, and most of all I feel like a damn hypocrite.
Okay.
I don't think that it's in your DNA to do this without calling them out.
Nope.
It's not.
But, you know, they did say that they wanted that edgy Kat Edison sensibility, so maybe I should give them just that? I think I would rather save the close-up of the Neon Geode lips until after the edible essential oil section.
Jane, do you have a sec? Also, do we have another photo of Michael B.
Jordan? He is just so beautiful; everybody's gonna think he's CGI.
We are putting Blake Lively and her two daughters on the cover, and your piece is gonna be the featured story.
That's great.
So when do I get to see your rough draft? It's just taking me a little longer than I thought it would.
You having trouble finding mothers who are wanting to go on the record? No, no, that's that's not it.
Well, if you're finding that focusing on the trendy aspect of young motherhood is is slowing you down, then you can just throw out the babies as accessory angle.
I mean, maybe something about fourth-wave feminists who are trying to have it all sooner.
Something that explores how and why young women just hitting adulthood would want to take on this kind of responsibility.
- Right? - Yeah.
That is really interesting.
I'll explore that angle.
Great.
Well, I can't wait to read it.
Oh, well, this is looking a lot better.
Yeah, I rock it like you know I should Do it better than the others could Keep it popping, keep it feeling good Go all day, all right Everybody gonna look my way See me coming from a mile away Feel the beat, let the record play Yeah, we slay, all right Okay, bottom line is if I'm going to recreate Chad's in the Scarlet photo studio I have $233 for set dec and props.
Yeah, that's almost impossible.
Yes, but not if you grew up shopping at flea markets.
Don't be afraid to haggle.
We need 30 black and white framed photos ideally New York-y stuff - three clocks.
- Do they have to work? They don't because the ones at Chad's are broken.
A large screen TV, a chalkboard, darts, dartboard, some old maps, sofa and chairs.
- All for under 233? - 218, actually.
We need money for a cab back into the city.
Thank you guys so much for doing this.
No problem, just be ready to make me one of those smoothies when Jacqueline gives me her whole "You haven't handed in your piece" face tomorrow.
I'm on it.
Ready? It's just shopping, right? Except we're buying stuff nobody wants with money we don't have.
Exactly.
Go team.
[cheering] - 15! - I'll give you 10.
Gimme the 10.
Thank you.
How much is the TV? - Is that a character? - Pirate.
10? Here.
Sweet, thank you.
I'll take this too.
Thank you so much.
You're a doll.
Unforgettable thing Unforgettable [clocks shatter] Oh.
We live, unforgettable thing [all sighing] Okay, neon sign.
Check.
Photo of Bella Abzug.
Check.
- Think we did it.
- Yep.
Uber truck is three minutes away.
So that means we should be unloading at "Scarlet" in, like, half an hour.
Oh, we do have to make a pit stop.
- What? - Yeah.
I thought we got everything? Almost everything.
There has to be a better way to get the plastic cups from Chad's.
Eh, not for free.
Jackpot! We live, unforgettable thing Unforgettable thing [sighs] I am exhausted.
That's what happens when you work all night.
On the upside, you did it.
Well, let's see what Oliver has to say from Paris once he gets the photos I'm about to send him.
He's gonna love it.
Come on, we got to go.
We smell a little too dumpster for my taste.
Oh.
See, the thing is, is you guys smell like dumpster, I smell like roses.
[scoffs] No, you don't.
- What? - She's right.
- You don't.
- You stank.
I promise.
I would know.
Unforgettable thing So incredible So you're not even bothering getting dressed at home anymore? Oh, they were helping me get ready for the "Divas and Dives" shoot all night.
Won't say a word.
You're not the only ones who've had to borrow an Eliza J maxi dress in a desperate time of need.
Oh, Jane.
Jacqueline would like to see you in her office.
She really wants your young moms piece.
So your young mothers piece.
Why are you struggling with it? I don't know.
I I guess I just haven't found an angle that really works for me yet.
Okay.
It feels too personal.
Jane, if you think that you're pregnant or that you might be No.
No.
It's it's nothing like that.
Okay, it's a little like that.
I never told you this, but I found out that I'm positive for the BRCA gene mutation.
Oh, Jane, I am so sorry.
I had no idea.
Yeah, I haven't really told a lot of people.
But the thing is, is I have a lot of decisions that I have to make in the next few years.
Like what kind of preventative surgery I want to have if any.
And whether or not I want to have kids, and if I do, I either need to freeze my eggs or think about getting pregnant, so Well.
That is a lot to handle.
Especially when you're 25.
Yeah.
I don't really know how to start thinking about it.
Have you talked to your friends about this? Yeah.
And, I mean, I know they care, but they don't really know what to say.
Jane.
I hope you know that I am always here to talk about anything.
Thank you.
And don't worry.
- I'll get the article done.
- Oh.
I am not worried about that.
But if it's tripping you up, writing about young 20-somethings who've chosen to have kids, then just write about why you're not ready yet.
Thank you.
I'll think about it.
[funky dance music] Right over here, sweetheart.
Look away.
That's it.
Beautiful.
What is my sexuality? Yeah, that lighting is perfect.
It's amazing.
I love it.
Go get some more stuff.
We be hanging on the Oh, my God.
Looks so good.
Oh, yeah.
- Literally would never know.
- Yay.
Kat, I'm gonna need you to come with me.
Yes.
I use Whole Spa clean wipes in the middle of the day because it's a great pick-me-up.
My skin feels soft, hydrated, and most of all, clean.
It's as if all the dirt's been wiped away.
Just like how the CEO of Whole Spa, Eric Miller, is hoping that having a queer black woman featured on their Instagram story will just wash away all the bad press he's about to get for donating to hate groups.
They might try and sue us.
I did everything I was contractually obligated to do.
I used the cleanser, listed three things that I liked about it.
Are these allegations against the Whole Spa CEO true? I just spoke with the reporter; he has multiple sources, and the story just broke on "Vice.
" Did you know about this? When you agreed to the product integration? No, of course not.
But this is still a very important partnership.
And if we're being honest, not everyone at Safford is woke.
I mean, Elliot Waxman from "Porch & Garden" has been spotted on more than one occasion wearing a MAGA hat while golfing.
Well, maybe you should see if he could do the next Whole Spa Instagram story.
This is precisely why "Scarlet" doesn't do advertorials.
It betrays the trust of our readers.
When they pick up an issue of "Scarlet" magazine, they expect us to have an authentic point of view.
I was just trying to increase our revenue stream.
Well, that's a noble goal.
But neither Kat, nor "Scarlet" 's integrity should be up for sale.
[dramatic music] [laughter] - Should we go get a drink? - Yes.
I wish.
I have to go home.
Ben is coming over, and I'm gonna tell him what's been going on.
So you know, super fun night.
[laughter] I'm sorry.
But telling Ben is good.
Yeah, he's your boyfriend now.
Which means you get sex on the regular and he needs to know stuff like this.
- [cell phone buzzes] - Oh, speaking of boyfriends, I just got an all-caps happy text from Oliver.
- Wow.
- - Followed by an angry one.
- Hmm.
Okay, but be forewarned, S-U-Q is a word, and I will be playing it.
[both chuckle] Um So, hey.
I have to talk to you about something.
You already apologized for the other night and thanked me for the flowers.
I promise you we're good.
It's it's not about that.
Remember when I told you how my mom died from breast cancer? Well, I I found out that I'm positive for the BRCA mutation.
Oh, Jane.
I'm sorry.
Yeah, I I found out, like, four months ago, and I thought that the only thing I needed to worry about were the screenings.
But when I saw my doctor the other day for the side effects, she told me I need to start thinking about what kind of preventative measures I wanted to take and whether or not I want to have kids.
Oh, Jane.
Well.
That's a lot.
The mutation, is it in BRCA1 or BRCA2? - BRCA1.
- Okay.
And your mother's breast cancer, was that estrogen sensitive? Because Ben.
I need you to act like my boyfriend right now, not a doctor.
Yeah, I'm sorry.
You are having regular mammograms, right? Yes.
And trans-vaginal ultrasounds to check for ovarian cancer Ben.
I didn't tell you so that you could give me medical advice.
I told you because I want you to know what's been going on.
I'm sorry.
I'm just trying to process this.
I know what this means in ways other guys don't.
Yeah.
Right now I kind of wish you didn't.
Look, can we just go back to playing the game, and just forget I said anything? Okay? ["The Ending" by Wafia] Caught up in the day, you mistook the Voices you heard for your friends We all get hurt by the ending We tried to pretend like everything was normal.
But we both knew that it wasn't, so I'm sorry, love.
I mean, I don't know what I expected him to do.
It was cancer, surgery, potential parenthood, just wrapped up in one delightful little package.
Okay, well, let's tackle this one thing at a time.
You love lists.
And if ever a situation demanded a pro-con list, deciding whether or not you want to have a kid would be it.
I know.
But I don't think I can.

I mean I only have memories of my mom when she was sick.
I don't remember anything before that.
And I just keep thinking, like Was she the kind of mom who got down on the floor and played with me when I was a kid or did my hair or read me bedtime stories and sang to me? Did she kiss me on the forehead when she tucked me in at night? Hey.
Whatever kind of mother she was she was amazing because so are you.
I just wish that I could talk to her and get her advice about all of this.

- Hey, Jane.
What's up? I saw you called.
Yeah, thanks for calling me back.
- Everything okay? - No, I'm fine.

I think I was just so flattered that they wanted me, I I just said yes without thinking, but - won't do it again.
- Well, let's not overcorrect.
I mean, you are inspiring.
Your story is powerful, but don't just let anybody tell your story.
Find companies and causes that you feel proud to get behind.
Do you really think I should try something like that again? I'd be disappointed if you didn't.
