Dale:  Hey, look who’s back! It’s my new boss! Welcome back!

Marni:  Thank you!

Beren:  Where were you?

Marni:  Where haven’t I been, is really more like it. I…I have to be honest. I went searching for new friends.

Jason:  Did you find any friends?

Marni:  No. I mean, I met some nice people, but I missed my real friends. You know, real connections. I missed you guys! I did!

Jason:  We missed you too!

Marni:  Thanks!

Jason:  You got to go before Devan sees you. It’s going to get crazy.

Devan:  So, to what do we owe this pleasure?

Marni:  Well, I came here today to extend an olive branch. I don’t want to fight anymore. I don’t want to compete anymore. I want us to be friends and I want us to work together and be like we used to be before companies and competitiveness.

Jason:  Yeah, remember that? All the fun we used to have?

Devan:  We did use to have something between us.

Marni:  We had some good fun!

Devan:  But can I trust you? Is this real or is this another one of your ploys?

Marni:  This is the epiphany I had. I had to travel far and wide to get to this point, but it’s real.

Devan:  I’m willing to make up if you’re willing to make up.

Marni:  Absolutely!

Jason:  Man, can you believe they’re just making up, just like that?

Dale:  No, I can’t believe they’re making up!

Jason:  Wow, so after all that fighting all it took was, you know, someone to extend an olive branch for you guys to make up? This is incredible, this is great!

Marni:  Yeah, it is!

Dale:  Yeah!

Jason:  Uh, back to work I guess?

Devan:  Back to work, everybody.

When Marni comes into the office after being on a trip, everyone is happy to see her. But they warn her that she ought to leave before Devan sees her. Then Devan walks in.

Marni explains that the reason she bought the company is because she wants to make up and forget about the disagreements she has had with Devan and be friends again. Devan isn’t sure if she can trust Marni, but Marni assures her that she’s telling the truth. They hug and everyone celebrates.

Do you think Devan and Marni can really be friends again? Have you ever made up with someone?

I think Devan and Marni can be friends. But they shouldn’t compete together, and they should trust each other and help in their work. Only if they are honest, they will get along.


It’s good that Marni extended an olive branch, and they made up.



As for me I can’t remember any situations where i made up with my friends. But i remember the situation,that after a good relations with some persons in some time we didn’t continue to keep in touch. And I don’t know the reason about it.

I think it is perfectly possible, with one good thing, Devan and Marni knows each other better. Depends only on the people envolved.

Therefore,we will speak out our idea,we do not be angry,because ,we have a same aim,that is wish the baby everything is ok. So we will make up soon.

It is really make up.

It's difficult to say for certain, but I think, if they are really friends, they could put the past behind and find a compromise.

i don`t belive that , if there are two real freinds and they spent alot of good time together then they fighted whatever what the reason was? but i don`t thing one of them can extend an olive branch and put the past behind him coz first we are not angels and when the person love his friend real love then he hurt him i think he can`t trust of him and can`t forgive him coz he loved him alot.

thanx for lesson Laughing

I don't know Devan or Marni.But I don't think they can really be friends again.Marni seems kinda evil.

Of course,I have made up with somebody.But there was nothing serious happened between us.
