Jordan(looking from Patty to Graham with astonishment)Really? I mean, like, I don't want to impose or anything.

Graham: Jordan, your not imposing, we'd be happy if you'd stay.

Patty: Of course there will be some rules. First, You will have to be in at a reasonable time. and second, Yoy'll have to sleep on the couch. (to Angela) You two will not be alone in your room, got it?

Graham: Now Jordan, your welcome to stay, if you like?

Jordan: I--uh, (looks at Angela who is absolutly thrilled at her parents allowing him to stay)Maybe for like, a couple days or whatever?

Angela: Yes! Hugs her mom and dad and when Jordan stands up she hugs him. Jordan winces from the pain
