The Third is the charm.

As a janitor working at one of Silicon Valley's most prestigious health tech companies, Alfie is used to—and prefers—cleaning the stage before the real stars come out. Such is the life of a trusty background character amongst the main leads, Jasmine Liu and Dean Tran, the elusive pair of young CEOs running HELIOS. Jasmine and Dean lead seemingly perfect lives; Stanford graduates, valedictorians, CEOs, Forbes 30-Under-30 types and of course, long-time lovers.

Which is why he's shocked to accidentally overhear the one apparent flaw in Jasmine and Dean's lives: that they're struggling to get their 'third in their life', their 'baby'. Certain about their struggle to create a proverbial hatchling in the family nest, a sympathetic Alfie boldly offers help in any way he can.

To his surprise, the pair agree to his help. Suddenly, Jasmine and Dean are everywhere, inviting him to their offices, sending small gifts his way (in gratitude?) and Alfie is running around compiling fertility tips in a binder like it's nobody's business. If only he could actually properly share them with the pair, considering Dean and Jasmine seem intent on having these advice meetings with him during distracting candlelit dinners, sunset strolls and truly tender homecooking sessions.

Wait, is this what normally happens when a background character gets dragged onto the center stage?
