Lauren asks what happens if she presses charges. He tells her then it would be a felony. Lauren says well it is her store’s policy to prosecute shoplifters.

When she notices she asks him if he is cross with her or something. He starts complaining about Kevin taking over Amber’s life. Jana tells him she didn’t like the idea of having to ask for Amber’s help, saying she would have given anything if he had asked for her and not Amber.

He feels she is indeed pressuring him and he wonders if she is giving him an ultimatum. She says no but she is scared. He admits he is scared to. She feels like everything is slipping away and she doesn’t know what to do about it. She says she feels that any minute or hour from now it will all be gone. He says it isn’t that simple for him, it won’t come down to one hour or one night.
