Jacks Penthouse. Chloe and Jax have been getting her settled in when there
is a knock on the door.
Alexis: Oh, I should have knocked. I'm sorry.
Jax: You did.
Alexis: No, I meant I should have --
Jax: Our bad.
Alexis: Waited for you to open up the door.
Jax: It's okay. Come on.
Chloe: Hi, Alexis.
Alexis: Hi. This -- this won't take long. I just needed you to look over these
Jax: What are they?
Alexis: A reminder that I don't live here anymore.
Alexis: Are you moving in tonight?
Chloe: Whatever gives you that idea?
Alexis: You know, we can do this another time.
Jax: What is it?
Alexis: It's a petition for divorce.
Jax: Our divorce?
Alexis: Like I said, bad time.
Chloe: No, no, no, it's a perfect time. I have to go back to my suite for something.
Jax: Did you forget something?
Chloe: Something tiny. Don't worry.
Alexis: You know, we don't -- this is not anything that has to be done --
Chloe: No, it's okay. I'll be back in a few minutes.
Chloe: Yeah, okay.
Jax: All right. See you.
Chloe: Bye. (she leaves)
Alexis: Are you sure you want to do this right now?
Jax: Let me see it.
Alexis: It's really straightforward. I'm not going to be bitter about it. No property
-- just the microwave. No alimony -- just the popcorn. And all you have to do is file.
Jax: Out of the question.
Alexis: All right, just the popcorn.
Jax: You can have the microwave as well. I'm just not going to sign these papers
unless you file it against me.
Alexis: Do you really think that's going to make any difference?
Jax: Well, just seems more polite.
Alexis: You're a gentleman right to the very end. Thank you. All right, I'll redo
the documents and, before long, you'll be a free man again.
Jax: Not exactly.
Alexis: Hmm. You know that I have your best interests at heart.
Jax: Of course.
Alexis: So if I give you my opinion or I just make a little observation --
Jax: Alexis. Please.
Alexis: I know that you want to help Chloe through this medical crisis. But don't
you think you're moving her in here a little too quickly?
Jax: Is this concern about Chloe moving in coming strictly from you?
Alexis: Of course it is.
Jax: Because it sounds like you've been talking to my mother.
Alexis: I have. Does that bother you?
Jax: Well, I'm not thrilled about it.
Alexis: Jax, she is concerned about you. And I think she thought if she ran some
things by me, it might make her feel better, might help.
Jax: Help what, convince me to leave Chloe?
Alexis: I didn't say I agreed with her.
Jax: Well, it sounds like it.
Alexis: Can we start this conversation over? I'm not comfortable with where it's
Jax: I would rather not even have this conversation.
Alexis: I think it's important.
Jax: Okay, go ahead.
Alexis: You know that I did not agree with your mother about you breaking up with
Chloe. I think that's ridiculous, and I told her so.
Jax: Okay, great, so there's no problem.
Alexis: I have some concerns of my own.
Jax: Are you sure I need to hear them?
Alexis: Yes, I am because I don't want anything said or not said between us to
ever stand between us.
Jax: Well, neither do I.
Alexis: Our marriage may not be real, but our friendship sure is. And I know you,
Jax. I know how you care about people. I know how much you love people. I know how deeply you love them. And then when something
goes wrong -- and they do -- i.e. Brenda, your father, Jerry -- you take it all on yourself, and you suffer. You've been suffering
for a long time, and now you're suffering. You're suffering with Chloe. And I care about Chloe. She's a good friend of mine,
and I want what's best for her. But you count, too. And I'm worried that if you don't take time to refuel, there'll be nothing
left. So if Chloe moves in here --
Jax: Chloe's here.
Alexis: It's just so quick.
Jax: Alexis, she's here. That's a given. Okay, she needs me. I'm not going to
turn my back on her.
Alexis: I'm not asking you to. I'm just asking you to pay attention to your own
health and your own happiness.
Jax: Being with Chloe is taking care of me. The thought of leaving her doesn't
even enter my mind.
Alexis: Okay. So I wasted my breath.
Jax: No, Alexis, you didn't -- no, I -- it's very nice that you worry about me.
I mean --
Alexis: What do you expect? I mean, I may be on my way out as your wife, but I
plan to be your friend forever.
Jax: Same here. (Jax laughs)
Alexis: I'm going to miss this place.
Jax: What, the furniture? The great view? My bad habit of ordering food all hours
of the night?
Alexis: I'm going to miss you.
Alexis: Living here, being married to you and all the insanity that went along
Jax: Certainly kept us on our toes, didn't it?
Alexis: Sure did.
Jax: So, are you ready for the real thing?
Alexis: What? Oh, me? Marriage? Not yet. But I am much closer to getting there
because of you. Now it isn't as constricting, as suffocating, as terrifying as it was before.
Jax: So now all you have to do is get rid of Ned somehow and find someone who
deserves you. You know I'm all for it.
Alexis: I couldn't have done any of this without you, you know.
Jax: And I couldn't have done it without you more, so thank you.
Alexis: You're not going to get any more microwave popcorn, you know.
Jax: Well, how can I? I mean, you're taking it all, right?
Alexis: I'd better take care of those papers.
Jax: Listen, if there's anything that you need me to do, just -- just let me know.
Alexis: Okay. Good-bye, Husband.
Jax: Good-bye, Wife.
