Chelsea: It’s just so victor to completely blindside adam and sell newman media to victoria.
Chloe: We were blindsided, too. The fate of our fashion brand now hangs in the balance.
[ Sighing ] Just all of that hard work and effort could be for nothing.
Chelsea: No! Not if adam stays on at newman/locke after the acquisition. Then I think our jobs will be safe. And, you know, adam’s invested a lot in our platform, too. I don’t think he would just dump us.
Chloe: I wouldn’t be so sure of that. I hate leaving our fate in adam’s hands.
Lauren: Here you go. What are you doing?
Michael: Uh, a little business.
Lauren: For victor?
Michael: He is my new boss now.
Lauren: Ah! The madness starts. Okay, what does he want?
Michael: Um, actually, i don’t quite know, which is unfortunately often the case with him. The man gives you half the story half the time.
Lauren: Which is why I found it so odd that you were eager to go back to work for him.
Michael: Well, he, not unlike yourself, keeps life interesting. For example, I do know that the newman media sale will soon be public knowledge, but, after that, what his next move will be… is anybody’s guess.
Victor: Hello, my baby.
Nikki: Hi. You look like you’re deep in thought.
Nikki: Is that because adam gave you his decision about staying with newman/locke?
Victor: Uh, not yet, no.
Nikki: Any idea which way he’s leaning?
Victor: Your guess is as good as mine.
Nikki: Well, I’m sure he has a lot to think about. That was a bold move, handing his company to victoria.
Victor: Well, yeah. But it’s not as if he has been left to his own devices. He’s been guaranteed to run the newman media division as he had before, you know?
Nikki: What are you prepared to do if he says no?
Ashland: Well, let’s say that adam says yes to staying on board. How is that going to affect the way things run around here?
Victoria: You don’t have to worry about that. It’s never gonna come to pass.
Ashland: Well, how can you be so sure?
Victoria: Because adam would never deign to work under me.
Ashland: Well, if he had no intention of entertaining the offer, wouldn’t he have turned it down by now?
Victoria: I’m telling you. Adam would rather eat glass than take orders from me. He made that perfectly clear when I told him about the acquisition. And the reason that we haven’t heard from him? It’s just another one of his mind games. He loves keeping people hanging…
Victoria: …By the fingernails, if possible.
Adam: Come in.
Sally: I hope I’m not bothering you.
Adam: Uh…you’re not… yet.
Sally: I just wanted to see if you made your decision yet and to let you know I’m available for another pep talk if need be.
Adam: That will not be necessary, because I have made up my mind.
Adam: And you will hear my verdict very soon.
[ Sighs ]
Nate: Boy, did I need this day off from the hospital.
Elena: Me too. It’s nice to just be able to relax and spend a little time together.
Nate: Though I can see the mountain of paperwork piling up for me.
Elena: Well, what are you gonna do? Comes with the territory, mr. Chief of surgery.
Nate: It does, but I honestly didn’t realize how much of the job was administrative when i took it. Maybe I should take ashland up on his offer to work for newman/locke.
Nick: Alright, let’s hear it. How’d it go with your college counselor?
Faith: Great! She helped me narrow down my list of schools to a few that stood out. The university of michigan is my favorite so far. I’m looking forward to visiting it in a couple weeks with mom.
Nick: Go, blue! Alright. What about it? Is it the campus, the location, the arts program?
Faith: Those are all pluses, but they also have a really good business program.
Nick: Business. I didn’t know that was something you were interested in.
Faith: Yeah, I’ve been thinking lately that I might want to go into the fashion or beauty industry, like summer and aunt victoria did.
Adam: We need to talk.
Victoria: Adam. Listen. Um, I really appreciate you coming by to give your decision in person. But, you know, there’s really no reason to belabor this. Thank you for everything that you did for newman media, and we promise to take very good care of it from here. And good luck in your future endeavor.
Adam: Wow, you are very sure of yourself.
Victoria: That’s because you and I both know that this is the only answer that makes any sense.
Adam: Then call me crazy, but I’m not moving on to another job. I’m gonna stay with the company once the sale goes through.
Victoria: Is that right?
Adam: I’m a team player, and I didn’t want to dump such an important piece of family legacy in your lap when you already have so much on your plate.
Chloe: In the back of my mind, I always worried about accepting a job offer from adam, that it would be a mistake, because we have poured out our blood, sweat, and tears into creating this platform, one that I’m really proud of, and for what? I mean, it could all be over tomorrow. Someone else could be running it.
Chelsea: That’s all true, and I understand your frustration. But I’m not giving up yet. Okay? I know that you’ve been working on this platform a lot longer than I have, so you’re more invested, but I think we need to fight.
Chloe: [ Sighs ] I’m just so glad to hear you say that. I…I have put so much energy into this, mainly for you. I’ve really felt like I owed you this after everything that i have put you through. And this is not just about work or business for me. I really just wanted to say thank you for always standing by me. And I just wanted you to have a special place to come home to and a safe place to land. So, I agree with you 100%. We should not let this obstacle get in our way.
Chelsea: Good. Then, we are on the same page, because together we are a force to be reckoned with.
Chelsea: And you know what? We don’t have to leave our fate solely in the hands of adam. Come with me.
Chloe: What — where are we going?
Chelsea: Straight to the top.
Nick: So, where did this interest in business come from, because I had not heard this before.
Faith: I really liked the econ class that I took, and i have some great role models in our family. I really look up to aunt victoria, summer, and grandma. Mom, too — she’s worked in the business world before, not to mention running this place. So, maybe I inherited the gene.
Nick: Your mother is definitely inspirational. And I have every “faith” in you, too. See what I did there?
Faith: Ugh! Dad!
Nick: Look, kid. You know I’m your biggest fan. I think you’re so smart and driven, and I believe you can do whatever you want in this world, including business, if that’s what you decide to pursue.
Faith: Thank you. And I’m not saying for sure i want to do this yet, but I do like the idea. So, I at least want to explore it.
Nick: Yeah, well, the good news is, you don’t have to decide right now, right? You can try all kinds of things and then make a choice when it feels right.
Faith: Yeah, I know. Moses had his heart set on being a doctor, and then he didn’T. He totally changed his mind. So, I realize that my feelings might change, too.
Nick: Well, I understand being inspired by your family, but, also, you know, I want to make sure that they don’t have too much influence on you, you know? I mean, does this interest in business have anything to do with your grandfather?
Faith: No, not at all.
Nick: So, he didn’t try and talk to you or give you any advice about this?
Faith: I swear. He didn’t say anything to me. But I look up to him, too, and i think that he’d probably be happy to hear that it’s possible I’ll follow in his footsteps.
Nick: Oh, yeah. He will be thrilled.
Faith: [ Chuckles ]
Victor: Enough business talk — let’s go have some lunch.
Nikki: Well, I would love that, but I’m not gonna let you dodge my question. I know you’re disappointed in adam, but I also know how much you value your father-son relationship with him, and you two have come a long way.
Victor: We have, indeed, and I will do everything in my power to maintain a good relationship with my son, okay?
Nikki: Well, I will always be wary of adam, but that doesn’t mean I want to see the two of you in a big blowup again.
Victor: Don’t you worry. If he does not want to work at newman/locke, I have a plan “B.”
Nikki:, Darling, you always have a plan “B.”
Victor: [ Laughs ] My baby, you know that I’m always a move or two ahead of everyone else.
Nikki: Mm-hmm. I do.
Victor: Yes. Here we go.
Victoria: I can’t lie. I’m surprised that you want to stay on with the company. But if that’s the case, then welcome aboard.
Adam: Oh, well, thank you. Technically, I’ve been on board, so maybe I should be welcoming you.
Ashland: I hope that we can make this a seamless and conflict-free transition.
Adam: That is exactly what i want, as well.
Victoria: Yes, that’s everyone’s goal, and I’m sure that dad is gonna be thrilled with your choice, since he fought so incredibly hard to keep your job safe.
Adam: I think my work speaks for itself. The success of newman media is enough to convince you that i know what I’m doing. Oh, and I expect to maintain the same level of autonomy that i have enjoyed thus far.
Victoria: Not so fast. Better skin from your body wash?
Victoria: Well, I appreciate your enthusiasm, but I prefer to see where you can take things before I give you complete autonomy.
Adam: Should we ask your business partner what he thinks, since my sister doesn’t seem to be consulting with you about a company that once was yours.
Victoria: Oh, don’t be ridiculous. We talk constantly.
Adam: Look. Certainly, you can recognize that I’ve taken former cyaxares to new heights, right?
Ashland: I’m gonna have to agree with victoria. While you have done a yeoman’s job running the company to this point, there will be changes coming. And once the sale is final, and newman media merges with chanccomm, it’s going to be a much larger division. Instant autonomy might be a bit much under those circumstances.
Victoria: Exactly. We are in complete agreement. You’re gonna have to prove that you can run an entity that is essentially double the size of the one that you’re currently managing.
Adam: [ Chuckles ] Need I remind you that I once ran newman enterprises?
Victoria: Oh, yes, i remember.
Adam: Well…I’m going to take this as a challenge. And I look forward to showing you what I am capable of. Now, since we have a plan, who wants to break the good news to dad?
Nate: Ashland presented a pretty tempting offer. He suggested using my medical expertise to try to do good on a larger scale. He even offered to mentor me in the private sector.
Elena: Yeah, and I remember you telling me about the business classes you took back when you were in school. They actually helped us a lot when we were setting up the clinic.
Nate: Yeah, one of my professors suggested I take those classes. I really enjoyed them because they exercised another part of my brain.
Elena: I assume you’re not actually considering giving up chief of surgery to do something like that?
Nate: No, no. I…I truly thought ashland was kidding until he brought up askmdnow.
Elena: Wait. What? Is he trying to replace me with you?
Nate: No! No. No, not at all. Ashland thinks you’re doing great. He was talking about expanding the mission of the site, thinking bigger and taking it further, which is great for you. Ashland and victoria see the value in the site, and they don’t plan on disbanding it.
Elena: So…are you considering it at all?
Nate: Even though I don’t have the same passion for this chief job as I did being a surgeon, it doesn’t mean I’m ready to leave the hospital altogether.
Elena: And you’re not able to do the job that you love… because of me.
Chloe: Hey, could we get a minute of your time?
Victoria: Oh, look. I’m sorry. I’m swamped. You’re gonna have to make an appointment.
Chelsea: Oh, I promise we’ll make this quick.
Chloe: Yeah, we’ll get right to the point.
Victoria: Alright. Just please make it quick.
Chloe: Adam told chelsea about the sale. Congratulations on that. And we look forward to working with you, whether adam decides to stay or not. And we are just hoping that you are going to honor our contract with newman media because we are fully committed to newman fashion’s success.
Chelsea: And we’d be happy to share with you everything we’ve accomplished so far and what we plan to do in the future.
Victoria: I am aware of the platform, and I feel a certain connection with sally because of the beautiful wedding gown that she made for me.
Chloe: And that is the same kind of style, innovation, and chutzpah our fashion brand is all about.
Chelsea: Chloe and I would be the right people to run the platform.
Victoria: Well, I’m not hiring anyone new for newman fashion. I’m jettisoning the entire platform altogether.
Chloe: What? That — okay, that is a rash and very unwise decision.
Chelsea: Can we just talk this through? I think that would be a mistake.
Victoria: I’m sorry, but I’ve thought about it, and I’ve made up my mind. Look — I know that your goal is to expand to your own fashion label, right? So, this way I wouldn’t be holding you up.
Chelsea: Well, how would — how would keeping the platform be holding us up? I mean, that’s the foundation of our brand.
Victoria: [ Sighs ] Look. You’re both very talented, but newman/locke is not interested in the hassle and the cost of creating an entirely new clothing line. I’m sorry. I wish you all the best, but i have other plans for newman media.
Adam: Hey, I just called the ranch. They said the two of you were here. Do you mind if I join you?
Nikki: Oh, no, not at all. We’ve been eager to hear from you.
Victor: So? Got some good news?
Adam: I think so. I’ve made up my mind, and I’m staying with newman media.
Victor: You know you made the right decision, right? The world is full of make or break moments.
Chloe: [ Sighs ] What the hell are we gonna do now?
Chelsea: This is bad. This is so bad. I mean, we just found new office space, yet we don’t have a business to move. Might as well cancel that lease.
Chloe: Maybe there’s another option. If victoria doesn’t want the fashion platform, that’s fine. But why does it have to be the end of it? We created it. Why can’t we keep it for ourselves, minus the newman name, of course?
Chelsea: You’re grasping at straws. We no longer have financing.
Chloe: Okay, that might be true, but I’m not throwing in the towel yet. Per our contract, we still get paid severance. So, maybe we could use that money to shop some other buyers for the platform.
Chelsea: But we don’t know how much that’s gonna cost, and the severance probably won’t cover it.
Chloe: Maybe we could find some investors to bankroll us.
Chelsea: [ Sighs ] We just don’t know the legalities of it all. Everything we’ve done so far is attached to newman media, which means it becomes victoria’s intellectual property.
Chloe: Even if that’s true, why can’t we start the fashion platform from scratch? We did it before. We can do it again.
Chelsea: I…would be open to that. But I would need to make this clear. If we’re gonna move forward developing a platform together, it needs to be just the two of us, starting fresh. I don’t want sally involved.
Chloe: [ Sighs ]
Michael: I talked to fenmore the other day, and I —
[ Text swooshes ]
Lauren: Go ahead.
Michael: I promise you. As soon as I get the answer I’m looking for, I’m all yours.
Lauren: Okay. It’s just the way it’s gonna be from now on, isn’t it?
Michael: No! No, I made sure there would be boundaries to guarantee that i could have a personal life, which there absolutely will be, the aforementioned boundaries.
Lauren: You know, I was really hoping that you’d have a little bit more time off between resigning from the da and going back to work for victor. But I see that is just a pipe dream.
Michael: Uh…I promise I’ll make it up to you.
Nick: Uh, sorry. I wasn’t eavesdropping, but i couldn’t help but overhear. Are you going back to work for my dad?
Michael: Yeah, we’re getting the gang all back together again.
Nick: I’m surprised.
Michael: Don’t tell me you have an issue with this.
Nick: Better you than me.
Victor: Now, did you inform victoria of your decision?
Adam: I just came from telling her and ashland.
Nikki: And how did that conversation go?
Adam: Well, she told me that I had full —
Victoria: Hello, everybody.
Victor: Hello, sweetheart. Hello, ashland.
Ashland: Victor. Adam.
Victoria: Well, I assume that you two just heard the important news.
Victor: We did, indeed.
Victoria: Well, I would like to say congratulations to all of us. This is a moment to celebrate, as we embark on a brand-new adventure. Should we have a toast?
Victor: Yep, let’s have a toast. I think it’s a wonderful occasion.
Adam: I can’t say no to champagne.
Victoria: Well, you might want to. You might tick off your new boss.
Ashland: Could I talk to you for a minute?
Victor: Sure. Excuse me, my darling.
Victor: Ashland, I am very glad we were able to make this deal work.
Ashland: Me too, though i wanted to mention that I have some changes I would like to implement once we take ownership of newman media, things that i think will make it an even more powerful force.
Victor: Don’t you think we should discuss that when victoria is present?
Ashland: I’m confident that victoria would agree that since my specialty is communications, I should take point on this.
Victor: Let’s discuss it later, alright? Well, now…
Adam: Why don’t you do the honors, dad?
Victor: I would be happy to. There we go. Here, my darling. Now, this is to my two children, who are passionate about the family business and who have found a way to work together. To all things newman.
Ashland: Hear, hear.
Nikki: Cheers. Are you one of the millions of americans

will continue. Lactaid is 100% real milk, just without the lactose.
Michael: So, you think I’m making a mistake working for victor?
Nick: I’m not saying that at all. In fact, I wish you luck with the new job.
[ Text swooshes ]
Michael: Sorry. I have to —
Lauren: Oh, don’t mind us.
Nick: I wish you luck with the arrangement, as well.
Lauren: Thank you. You know, I’m still curious as to exactly what victor has you doing, because this feels far more cloak-and-dagger than your typical legal maneuvering.
Michael: Mm, yeah. Well, I — I wish I could tell you precisely what’s going on. But there’s this pesky, little lawyer-client-confidentiality thing.
Lauren: Right, right. I’m not sure I’m liking this new gig.
[ Cellphone rings ] Yeah, get it. Get it.
Michael: Michael baldwin. What?
Nate: I don’t blame you for what happened to my hand. I made my own choices. And, to be honest, I deserved that punch from devon.
Elena: Not the lasting consequences.
Nate: We all feel bad about that, especially him.
Elena: I still wish I could go back in time and handle things differently.
Nate: Hey. No more regrets. Look where we all ended up. Devon is happy with amanda, and I am beyond happy with you.
Elena: I’m happy, too, but —
Nate: Look, look. I may not be a surgeon anymore, but I have a great life. I don’t long for the past because I love where I’m at right now. I love you.
Chloe: We can’t just drop sally. I mean, we need as much help as we can get if we’re gonna branch out on our own, and, I mean, sally is a proven asset.
Chelsea: I disagree. She’s baggage, and the downsides of her joining our team outweigh any so-called “talent” she may have.
Chloe: Why are you still so threatened by her, when you and adam are clearly over? I mean, he’s totally out of the picture now.
Chelsea: Sally has proven she can’t stay in her own lane. And, quite frankly, I think she knew about the sale way before we did. I think she knew it was in the works, and she didn’t say a word to warn us.
Chloe: What makes you say that? Do you have proof?
Chelsea: No, but I-I just — I just feel it. I saw it in her face.
Chloe: I don’t want us to turn our backs on a good addition to the company because of some misplaced emotions.
Chelsea: That’s not what this is! Chloe, we are alone now. We need to fight to stay afloat. You and I, we know each other and trust each other implicitly. Do you really know sally well enough to trust her with your entire professional future… the way we know and trust each other?
Adam: I look forward to working with you.
Nikki: Well, I can only hope for peace and prosperity with all of us working under the same roof.
Adam: Mm-hmm. That’s all that I want. Maybe the key is staying out of each other’s hair. And on that note, I need to get going. I need to let the newman media staff know that they will soon be employees of the great newman/locke.
Victoria: Would you do me a favor? Call my assistant and schedule a meeting for us. There are a couple things that i want to hash out with you before you start.
Adam: Will do.
Ashland: We should head back to the office, as well.
Victor: Ashland. Victoria, my darling, we should discuss the transition of power next time we meet, okay?
Victoria: Yes. Well, you know where to find me.
Ashland: Thanks for the time.
Nikki: Well, I suppose that was more civilized than i expected.
Victor: Mm-hmm. My darling, you know that I know what I’m doing.
Nikki: You always do.
Nick: Ran into half the family outside. Apparently, there’s some serious moguling going on in here.
Victor: Oh, yeah. Some serious moguling, indeed. Your brother adam and your sister victoria have decided to work together.
Nick: Well, I don’t know how you pulled it off. The fact that adam and vic left here without any bloodshed is pretty damn impressive.
Nikki: Yeah, what do you know? Maybe there’s hope for all of us yet.
Nick: Got to hand it to you, dad. You have assembled all of your troops — vic and adam and mom and ashland.
Nikki: Don’t forget. Your father will still be in his advisory position.
Nick: So many members of the newman family working so closely together.
Nick: Be careful what you wish for.
Everyone remembers the
moment they heard,
Victor: Well, son, I feel that having family work together is a boon for the company.
Nick: Trust me. Not hoping for trouble. I’m hoping it does very well, especially since it seems there may be another member of the newman family who ultimately winds up being an executive.
Nikki: Who are you talking about?
Nick: Faith. She is determined to go to a college with a strong business program.
Nick: I don’t suppose you had anything to do with that.
Victor: Well, no, I think my granddaughter has good sense, you know? Maybe one day, she’ll be able to convince her father to work for the same company — company that bears his name.
Nick: I wouldn’t bet on that.
Victor: Let me ask you something, son. Now that noah works with you at new hope, don’t you find it gratifying? Doesn’t it make you happy to work side by side with your son?
Nick: I love it.
Nick: I’m also very appreciative that you seem to have united the family under one umbrella. My concern is that there seems to be a lot of cooks in the kitchen.
Nick: And most of them think they’re the head chef.
Nick: You think that’s sustainable?
Victor: [ Chuckles ]
Nick: Well, there’s my food.
Nick: I love you both.
Nikki: I love you, too.
Victor: Nice to see you, son.
Nikki: Nicholas’ concerns are not unfounded. I think we should start thinking about how to move forward from here. Speaking of that, what were you talking to ashland about?
Victor: He seemed to want to push through some changes at newman media without victoria being there.
Nikki: Mm. I knew it. There seems to be a new power dynamic forming between the two of them.
Victor: Well, it seems to me that now that ashland is being able to manage his illness, he wants to exert more power and more leverage. And I won’t allow that to happen.
Nikki: You don’t think victoria can handle him on her own?
Victor: That’s beside the point. I’m gonna watch his every step.
Ashland: Do you think this was always victor’s plan, to reunify his family under the newman corporate umbrella?
Victoria: I think bringing the family together has always been one of his goals.
Ashland: Well, it makes me wonder what exactly he sees his role here as. I know he wants a so-called “advisory” position. But do you think he’s actually gonna settle for that?
Victoria: I think we need to redefine someone else’s role first… yours.
[ Footsteps approaching ]
Sally: I’m so glad you guys called to meet up. Okay, so, here’s what I’m thinking. We just keep working, same as before, and we prove how powerful, dynamic, and invaluable we are. I already have a ton of fresh ideas. What?
Chelsea: I’m guessing adam didn’t give you the heads-up this time?
Sally: What happened?
Chelsea: He’s going to run newman media for newman/locke. Our fashion platform is being killed.
Sally: Wha– that can’t be true.
Chelsea: It’s over, done.
Sally: Adam wouldn’t do that to me… to us.
Chloe: It’s actually victoria who pulled the plug.
Sally: Okay. Alright, well, we shouldn’t just give up. I mean, victoria likes me and my design sense.
Chelsea: We already tried making our case with her. She’s not interested in being in the fashion business.
Sally: Oh, my god. Okay, so, what are we gonna do?
Chloe: Well, I…I think it’s time for us to accept defeat and go our separate ways.
Sally: Just because we’re breaking away from newman/locke does not mean that this is the end for us. We can start a new platform on our own. We already have plenty of buzz, and we can just get another company to back us because we’re already a proven success. I think we should give it a shot.
Chelsea: It’s over, sally! It’s time to move on.
Sally: [ Scoffs ] If you, like many people,
Sally: So, that’s how it is? You know, I could have predicted that chelsea would throw me overboard, but you, too, chloe? We got the platform up and running by ourselves while chelsea was off, trying to figure out if she even wanted to join us.
Chloe: Whoa, whoa. I am as devastated by this as you are. I just think it’s time for us to cut our losses at this point.
Sally: Mm-hmm. Except for the fact that you two probably have enough money and people to rely on until you move on to whatever it is that you’re planning to do without me. And don’t even pretend like you’re not conspiring to start something together.
Chelsea: So, what if we are? We don’t owe you anything.
Sally: You know, I hate to break it to you, but your next project is going to be a big fail, and that will fall entirely on you because I am the reason that the fashion platform took off in the first place. It never would have amounted to anything if I hadn’t busted my butt and took risks on ideas, like victoria’s wedding dress.
Chelsea: Oh, please! Enough with the dress! It was one garment. It’s yesterday’s news. And you know what? You’ve got some nerve, predicting that we’re just gonna fail.
Sally: Okay, I don’t want to hear it. You’re a has-been. And you are a fool to follow her around. So, good luck with chelsea 22.0 or whatever number you’re at now, because you are going to need it.
[ Door slams ]
Victoria: You know what? I feel like we left some things unsettled after our conversation yesterday. I mean, I know that we said we want to work together as a team, which of course we will, but i wonder how you see us specifically functioning.
Ashland: Well, I want to take on a more active role, and i hope you welcome that. Just imagine what we can accomplish if we bring both of our business minds together as a united front.
Victoria: Yeah, I-I agree. And I see the sense in you, you know, having more control, since you’re more familiar with some of the divisions that were previously in your company.
Ashland: I’m so glad that you see things the way I do.
Nikki: So, if you are planning on taking a bigger role at newman than you have indicated, I need to know about that —
Michael: Oh, I’m sorry. Is this a bad time?
Victor: No, no, no, no, no. Come in.
Michael: Victor, I need to discuss a bit of business with you.
Victor: Okay. Sweetheart, would you give us a minute?
Nikki: I’m the coo of newman/locke. I mean, if that doesn’t qualify me to be in this meeting —
Victor: Well, but this won’t take long. I promise.
[ Door closes ] So… what have you uncovered?
Michael: I don’t exactly know what it means, but there’s some inconsistency regarding ashland’s treatment.
Victor: What does that mean?
Michael: There seems to be some question surrounding the treatment’s legitimacy, and, more to the point, the legitimacy of the clinic, the peruvian clinic where it originated.
Victor: To be frank with you, I’ve had my doubts from the very beginning about that nonsense. Why the hell would he travel all the way to peru to look for a treatment for cancer, when we have the best scientists in this country? I want you to dig deeper.
