Jonas: Okay, so I've got to be honest with everyone right now. I am so, SO sick of this. We found Julia last night, and she was cowering behind a building. Not exactly the most savvy escape artist in the world, but I mean, who can blame her. She's a scared little girl, you know? The thing is... the thing that's really bothering me is I think that Bree's judgment is a little clouded in this case. Look, we came down here to help this girl, and the truth is, she legitimately doesn't want our help. You know, and all the coaxing in the world isn't going to help that. It's not going to change anything. I think at this point, the best thing for us to do is to just to cut our losses and just go home. I really just want to go home. I guess what's changed for me is now I know there's a chance my parents might be alive. It might be selfish, but I really just want to focus all my energy on that. Bree and Daniel, they've been really supportive and really cool about it, but you know what, in my humble opinion, this might sound bad, but we spent all of our time down here helping some girl who doesn't even want our help. And to me, that's just a colossal waste of time. And especially when I could have been spending this time searching for my parents. It's such a waste of time! And I feel torn, because I feel selfish for saying that. And I don't know how much longer I can keep doing this.

Jonas: When my parents died, I uh had all these little games and things I would do to try to distract myself. Take my mind off it. And one of them was skating (Holds up his skateboard.) The reason I contacted Bree and started this whole thing was, I really felt like we have similar journeys. And, I still do. But look, when something isn't working, I'm a firm believer in trying something new. That makes sense, right? I'm just not sure that bringin' down the Order is really my thing anymore. I'm burned out, I'm tired. I just want to go home. And I don't think that's unreasonable. I'm frustrated. You know what, I'm just going to skate. I'm just going to skate and clear my head and figure this out.
- The video title is a reference to the law phrase "aiding and abetting," in that Jonas did not directly participate in the action to kidnap her but is an accomplice to Bree and Daniel in Julia's kidnapping.
- At about 1:35 in the video a man is seen in the background. He seems to be washing his car.
