Aaron explains it would ease financial pressure if Nicolette didn't need to worry about money. Dipi understands but is still standing firm. Aaron reluctantly agrees
CHLOE: Nicolette's made mistakes. She's owning them and trying to make them right. For her to do that she needs people to give her a second chance. I think you might know how that feels.
