Summary
Analysis
After the men are gone and Paul is getting ready for work, Janice looks into his eyes and asks him if he truly thinks he can do something for Melinda. Paul says he thinks they might be her only chance. Moved by this idea, Janice fiercely tells him to take that chance.
Once again, Janice does not need Paul to say anything to know what is going on in his mind. While she knows his plan is full of dangers, she remains committed to his moral principles and encourages him to carry out his difficult task.
