Nancy: Keeping the secret changes everything, too.

Ryan: This is a picture of Lucy as a baby from our yearbook. Compare and contrast. You look like you could be twins, Nancy. Why is that?

Nancy: Yeah, Lucy was pregnant. You guys were together on New Years Eve of 1999. Her due date was late September 2000. She died August 31st.
