Truth be told, this was a homework assignment from her mentor 'Shanny' who is encouraging this behavior. Her being a youngster, was taught to listen to your elders so she was just doing what she was told. So see...no where does sweet innocent Jakey fit into this equation. lol
Shanny is passing on the torch. As she nears retirement age she wants to make sure her legacy is passed on. So a passive view from the couch was her first step in making sure Quinn can shoulder the responsibility some day.
