I'm not afraid of anything. Except acne and leprechauns
And I don't wanna get a reputation for being difficult... again
I did something... Believed someone. And... just not sure if I made the right call
I know you'll be a good father
—Jane to Rafael
And I think she'd do anything – even turn in her own mother – if she thought she had a chance with you
