Trish: That's right. Just because you've hit 30 doesn't mean you can't be fresh anymore. You know Joy, I've never told you this before...but now that we're older and...I feel so bonded to you. Well, the truth is...oh, I know this is gonna sound horrible....but I feel like I have to be fully open with you, and get beyond all the old barriers, and the sibling nonsense, you know. The truth is I always thought you'd never amount to much. That you would end up alone, without a career or anything. It's what we all thought. Mom, Dad, Helen... everyone. I always prayed we'd all be wrong, but, somehow you always seemed so doomed to failure. But now I see that's not true. There's a glimmer of hope for you after all. Ah, I'm sorry, I'm repeating myself. I'm just really happy for you.
