Casey, playboy or man of purpose?
As this episode begins, we see Francis at work in her flower shop when Casey comes in. Francis and Casey start dating, but they also have a business relationship. When your girlfriend runs a flower shop, this might not be the wisest thing to do. But people often mix business with pleasure. A businessman might take an important client out for a game of golf. While the client is enjoying the game of golf, he is more likely to feel good about doing business with this man. There is a good chance that he ends up agreeing to a big business deal before their game is done. Let’s see how Francis and Casey do at mixing business with pleasure.
The drive to the countryside was a ‘swell’ date, but in today’s world, Francis would have called it ‘awesome’. The next day, Casey shows up at the flower shop and has two-dozen roses sent to a woman. How could Francis not have felt a little angry. She coldly carries on with it as if it is business as usual, but you know she’s wondering who the other woman is. And what did that woman do to rate two dozen red roses? Casey sets her up and then dispels her worries by telling her that the recipient is ‘a kind-hearted motherly soul’ who practically raised him. Well, that didn’t sound like a romantic relationship, so Francis could breathe easy again. What’s more, Casey still seems interested — he invites her to the symphony! Should she go?
