"No she can stay" says Melissa resigned
"Oh my God I forgot how much you looked like Babe!' says Krystal seeing Melissa
"Blasphemy hmm I take it you gave birth to us then abandoned us?'asks Melissa out of defence
"Yes I guess I'm guilty of that !'says Krystal taking her lumps "But I'm hoping that you and your sister will be able to find it in your heart to forgive me!'
"An elegant speech but it's a little too soon!' says Marissa as Jr enters the room and gasps
"Babe!' he says and then says "No of course not sorry it' uncanny how much you look like your sister you must be Melissa!he syas holding out his hand "I'm Jr.Chandler Marissa's husband!'

"I have two children a boy and a girl fraternal twins who are 4!There names are Trevor Nathan and Natalie.says Melissa
"No it couldn't be who's your husband ?"asks JR interjecting just as the doorbell rings.Jr answers it and it's Tim!
"Long time no see!' says JR
"Right back at you buddy!' says Tim hugging Jr "

"that we are Jr "says Tim
"Tim "says Melissa "I thought you had to work you aren't AWOL are you?"

"Really my sister's missing ? I haven't heard from her in years we stopped taking after her mother killed my father !'says Tim putting an end to the discussion and lying through his teeth.
