Disclaimer: I don't own any of these characters or settings, they belong to Paul Simms. The only thing I do own is the made-up character, Jane.

This is set a little before the show "Christmas" in the third season.

Dave: Oh no, 4:30 in the morning isn't too early. What's on your mind?
Jane: I just wanted to let you know I'm coming to visit today.

Jane: I thought you would.
Dave: OK, what time?
Jane: In 3 hours.
Dave: Where should I pick you up?

Dave: Can I ask a favor?
Lisa: What?
Dave: I won't be in until 9:00 so you need to run the station 'til i get back.
Lisa: Why won't you be here 'til then?
Dave: Because I have to pick up my mother at the airport.
