Nessa: Hello, Vee.

Devika: I'm okay. No, no cake. Mr. Thorne gave me a candy cane!!! You know, for Christmas and all.

Nessa: I have got to talk to that man about your sugar intake. (shaking head) Here you go, and how about some calm, soothing conversation a little less running around screaming, eh?

Devika: Yeah, calm and soothing. Yeah yeah, but there really IS a lot to do.

Devika: Now I can get the invitations sent out, so I need to write those up tonight..

Nessa: Vee.... calm, soothing... remember?

Devika: That's IT! What you said! Calm and soothing! YES! I know just what to get her! Thanks Nessa!
