I've left your mom several messages
and I haven't heard back.
Is there a better way that I can reach her?
Uh, she's in New York right now for a training seminar.
Why, what's wrong?
We just need her to weigh in on a delicate issue.
Mrs. Montgomery, what's going on?
I'm on the church's restoration committee,
and something's come up.
Wait, is this about Caleb's dad?
How well did your mom know Jamie before she recommended him?
Look, I'm trying to help.
It's just, it's really hard to defend the honor
of someone you don't even know.
I'm hoping it's all just a big misunderstanding.
And what's the misunderstanding?
Jamie...removed the bronze bell from the tower
to have it repaired, but the one that was
returned is evidently of much lesser value.
Wait, that's what this is about?
They miss their old, crusty bell?
To the tune of $8,000.
Please, don't say anything to Caleb,
just have your mom call me.
