"Even though she still at the moment works in the office until she's accused, and found of having, Bear's wallet in her bag – in which case Jai sacks her.
"She's thinking, ‘Great, she's out of my hair, our of my workplace'. And the next thing she's got to do is get her out of my son's life'."
"She knows that Jamie likes Dawn, but like his other choices in women, she's probably not the best one for her son.

"[Gabby] has got to build up a trust, she's got to play the game Kim's way, she has got to be able to manipulate Gabby, but she sees a lot of potential in her, while Gabby is desperate to be accepted after her own mother Bernice abandoned her."
