Please, come forward. Thank you.
These are our special breeds.
- How exciting. - You, uh...
You will like this.
The breeding program you see here,
it's finally been successful,
despite the extremely complex genetic engineering involved.
The aim has been to create a plant
with a scent that makes its owner happy.
Yes, that's right.
In recent years, plant breeding has increasingly focused
on making plants more resilient and more durable,
thus more energy efficient.
So, finally, the owner can go away on holiday for weeks
and the flowers still survive.
However, as a rule, this kind of engineering
involves a loss of scent; the flowers don't smell of much.
In our case, we have attempted to create the opposite.
our aim was to create a plant
that has to be watered regularly,
protected from cold and heat,
that wants to be touched and talked to.
Sounds like hard work.
Precisely. And in return,
the plant emits a scent, which promotes happiness
as a reward for all that effort.
Moreover, the scent contains a precursor
for the human hormone oxytocin.
Your body uses this molecule to produce oxytocin
when the scent is inhaled.
It's sometimes called the "mother-hormone",
it's supposed to initiate the bond between a mother
and her newborn.
You'll love this plant like your own child.
We are entering a new era here.
The first, mood-lifting, anti-depressant, happy plant,
that's fit for market.
I mean you can imagine the benefit for humanity
implicated in this innovation.
Yes, but will the plants be fully grown for the flower fair?
There's not much time left.
As a side-effect to the breeding program,
the plants produce an excess of the growth hormone Cytokinin.
So, yes, they will be ready on time for the fair.
What this plant really needs...
- Everything okay? - Yeah.
I'm sure your mum will be finished soon.
Hey, cool trainers!
We were in Geography and she opened her bag, and...
and she says that she found a little dead rat in there.
- What? - Yeah,
and what she says...
She says that she doesn't know who put it in.
I think he likes you.
- Who? - Chris.
What makes you think that?
I can see it.
Well, I can't.
Well, that's because all you can see are your flowers.
He helps you with your work.
You have the same interests. He suits you.
Much more than Dad anyway.
Dad would really like you to spend next weekend with him.
I told him I'd ask you.
Do I have to?
He really wants to see more of you.
- And me! - So, you'll get to know something different.
Believe me, Joe,
it will do you good to spend more time with your father.
So, you'd have more time for your work?
No. Oh, shit.
Stop laughing at me, Joe.
I guess there's nothing to worry about.
Yeah, the new breeding program could be a real success.
Anyway, I wouldn't want to jinx it.
But it does look very promising.
I mean, you never know what can happen.
Does that bother you?
不 这是我的工作 应对意外
No, that's my job. Handling the unpredictable.
It's what I'm pretty good at, usually.
Of course, there's always a way for a mistake to sneak in
that even I can't predict.
I can't control everything, can I?
After all, I have Joe to take care of and...
That must be quite a burden.
No, well, I wouldn't call it a burden!
I love my son and I enjoy spending time with him.
But sometimes, I simply can't be there for him.
Which does worry me.
What worries you?
Sometimes I'm overcome by the fear
that something could happened to Joe.
And I wouldn't be there for him.
My beautiful darling.
- Hiya. - Morning.
They're doing fine.
These Flash2 are far stronger than the Flash1 ever were.
Better give them quite a boost.
I don't want to loss these, too.
They will be viable this time.
We all know how hard it is to succeed with a new strain.
And the blue is just perfect.
If these plants prove to be capable of survival,
we could enter the production phase
sooner than we thought.
Alice, do you have a minute?
