Well, Id like to go home, Jerry!, says Alex. Jerry smiles.
Same for me!, says Sam.
Make that three!, says Clover.
Jerry instructs the pilot to drop all three gals at home, and waves goodbye.
Sam and Clover insist that Alex be the first to be dropped off. As she rises to disembark she walks over to Sam and Clover, who stand to wish her goodnight. Alex throws a big bear hug around both girls necks, Goodnight, my best friends! I am so glad I can still say that!, says Alex through grateful tears.
Clover and Sam return the hug, and also shed a few tears. Friends forever!, they both say.
The copter takes off, and Alex walks into her house. She sees her Mom standing in the living room. She walks up to her and gives her a big hug and kiss. I love you, Mommy!, she says. Carmen is a bit surprised by this outpouring of affection. Normally her teen daughter shies away from it since she turned 16, so she is pleasantly surprised by this opportunity, relishing it. I love you too, darling! she says as she cuddles her baby girl.
