Thorn: I’m not saying anyone had a knife to Mom’s throat, but yeah, she had to keep traveling. For her career. It was important!

Tansy: Look, Thorn — the last time Mom went off, what did she tell you about why she had to do it?

Clover (flashback): Be patient, son. Getting in on this shipping deal is going to be a great move for my career! I’ll corner the market and be back home soon.

Thorn: . . . which didn’t pan out, obviously, because she went out on the Margaid, so she died. How does that prove anything about —

Tansy: Now think back to the last trip you remember from before that. What did she say?

Clover (flashback): Be patient, son. Breaking ground on bargain-price land is going to be a great move for my career! I’ll get a few properties making money and be back home soon.

Tansy: And the time before that?

Clover (flashback): Be patient, son. Starting a new league team is going to be a great move for my career! I’ll win a championship or two and be back home soon.

Tansy: And the time before that?

Clover (flashback): Be patient, son. Scouting these trails is going to be a great move for my career! I’ll fix them up for the tourists and be back home soon.

Thorn: . . . I’m waiting for you to be going somewhere with this.
