By nature, Lawson was an outgoing person. However, he was careful of who he got close to; being in the justice system he learned quickly that one could never trust anyone right away. But Alexander, Victoria's new boyfriend, seemed like a decent guy. The last time he saw Alex was when he and Victoria came to dinner. It had actually been a pleasant, normal (he couldn't stress that enough) dinner. Lawson was happy Victoria had found someone, but he was concerned for how much Alex knew about the drinking. Well, he wouldn't pry. After all, Victoria had asked him -and Alex, apparently- to hang out with Alex and get to know him. She'd also told Lawson that she wanted his opinion on Alex, and Lawson was happy to give it once he knew Alex well enough. So he'd invited Alex to the mall, figuring they could do some shopping and then eat at the food court. Perhaps it wasn't the manliest thing to do, but Lawson really need some new clothes for work. Besides, Alex was still young, so he couldn't hate the mall all that much, right? "I wonder if he likes shopping," Lawson thought to himself as he waited inside the mall by the fountain. He'd text Alex to let him know where he was.
ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: That sounds familiar. I used to be that way. I still am, but I've learned to let go a little.

EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): Alec is too good to me, how did I deserve him. I'm such a perfectionist that I am afraid to screw up

ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: Everyone screws up. I've screwed up so many times I can't even keep track, but you just have to pick yourself up and learn to forgive yourself which can be the hardest thing to do

EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): Thank you so much Ellen. I know Alec is there to encourage me, but sometimes I feel he's put me on this great mother pedestal. I'm afraid of screwing up.

ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: I wouldn't worry too much Emma. You're very maternal, something I never was, and I managed to do it alone. If you ever need to talk about parenting, I'm always here

EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): I'm just worried about being a good mother. Since my own mother is no longer here to advice me. I just want to do her proud *nervous look*

EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): well I think Alec will be worried when it comes to that age. He'll probably buy a shotgun and ward off any boy who comes a courting.

ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: -laughs- you don't have to worry about that for a while. I told Victoria when she was going into sixth grade, but I think it also depends on the child
