Loyalty. Webster's Dictionary defines it as . . . well, I can't read so well anymore, so forget about it. Audrey, I know how you feel. My husband's seventeen-year old girlfriend shot me square in the face. Did I cut and run? Hell no! I stayed with Joey for years after that fateful day. Why? Well, my memory isn't what it used to be either, so I can't answer that. What is this, a Spanish Inquisition?
Look Audrey, I know that you and Jack have had some minor bumps in the road, but if you are going to keep this good thing going, you need to put a happy spin on the negative times. For instance:
- Jack didn't torture your brother. His quiet secluded Q&A was merely his attempt to get to know him better.
- Jack didn't kill your husband. He helped him to a better place. I would much rather be in Heaven than Los Angeles. Especially on that day!
- Jack didn't fake his own death to get away from you. He was playing hard to get.
- And that whole accusal, choking, torture thing? That's foreplay, honey!
See how easy it is? Believe me, dear, it gets easier every day. Lord knows how many times I wanted to kill Joey in his sleep, but then what kind of loving wife would I have been? A man like Jack Bauer only comes around once in a lifetime. So you swallow your pride - and your tongue - once in a while. Isn't he worth it?
