KAYLA: Jack! Look, I just want to see him
for a while, please? It'll make me feel better.
JACK: (Indecisive at first.)....No, I can't.
KAYLA: Why not? What in the world difference
does it make to you?
JACK: Because maybe I don't feel like granting
any favors right now. But that is unless you're ready to reciprocate....
