She knows that sometimes she is primed in her life but she is so happy that she is there for her and she can go to her whenever she needs her. Carly thinks anytime. If she needs her then she comes to her. She will always be there for her. Joss knows. Joss loves that she has been a teenager too in a way that other people havenít been. She understands it because she has lived it and survived it. That is how she knows she can too. Carly thinks that is why she cannot get away with anything.
