Ashley doesn’t understand him leaving the marriage without provocation. Abby cries, “But he was provoked.” She explains, “It was me. I cheated on him.” Ashley assumes that Abby’s cheating was a one-time meaningless mistake and she’ll never see the person again.

Diane protests, “I never gave him anything!” She would never do that to him or Kyle. Jack hollers, “One more lie! One more secret, one more deceit! One more shoe dropping right on schedule!

Diane pleads that she wanted to tell him before but didn’t want to…
