Kitty: Riddick, this is Mr. M. He's Lizzy's father. Riddick: Nice to meet you. Kitty: Lizzy, would you come and help me with the coffee? Lizzy: Sure.
Riddick: You look familiar. The prison, right? Mr. M: Right. You're more observant than your wife. - Lizzy said you haven't been married for long. Riddick: No, we got married very recently. That's what we were there for, to tell Chase about it. Mr. M: She got very upset. She managed to break all sorts of things before we got her restrained. Were you and her... Sorry, it's really none of my business.
Riddick: It's all right. And if it helps you in dealing with her, the answer is yes. I was with her before Kitty. It ended when she was arrested. Mr. M: That's the impression I got. If I may say so, you made a wise decision. She won't get out in a very long time and she isn't the type to reform even if she does get out some day. Riddick: I know.
Lizzy: Do you think Riddick likes my dad? Kitty: I don't see any reason why he wouldn't. Why is that so important to you? Lizzy: Most people don't like him. It's his job, I guess. And the way he looks... Kitty: Well, Riddick won't pay any attention to that. You were at the party and saw our friends, so you should know that. Lizzy: Yes, that's why I thought they might get along.
Lizzy: Kitty, I've been meaning to ask you... Who was that little guy at your party? The pale one with big teeth and ears? He seemed so unhappy. Kitty: You mean Max? He's a friend of ours. He works at the theater. And he has been unhappy for some time. It's because of Ruby. You remember her? Lizzy: Yes, I remember. So, he's interested, but she isn't? Kitty: That's a very accurate summary of the situation.
Kitty: Why are you asking about Max? Lizzy: He reminds me of someone I know. Kitty: Really? Are you saying you know someone of his kind? I thought there aren't that many of them. Lizzy: I'm not sure she's actually his kind, but closer to them than us. You know, one of the night creatures. Kitty: Interesting. I'd like to meet her.
Mr. M: Very fine selection of books you've got here. "Moby Dick" is one of my favorites. Kitty: Do you read much? Mr. M: Night shifts are usually very quiet, so there's a lot of time for reading. I read mostly classics, although I have skipped a few, like "The Count of Monte Cristo" and "Papillon." Kitty: I guess you find them a bit distasteful. It's the same way with me and movies like "Cat People."
After the guests are gone: Kitty: Riddick, you don't need to do that. I can take care of the dishes. Riddick: I didn't marry you to get a housekeeper. You have to let me do my part. Kitty: All right. I guess I just need to get used to the idea. Grandfather never did anything around the house. - So, did you like Lizzy's father? Riddick: He's all right. Kitty: I guess that means you liked him. - You know, when we were here making coffee, Lizzy told me something very interesting...
Next day: Don: Hello again. I hope you're not going to throw me out. I'm here because Ruby called me. Riddick: I know. I'm sorry I was so hostile before, but you must admit it looked bad. Don: Yes, I understand. But I would never do anything like that. You can't speak of "consenting adults" when someone is as drunk as she was. Riddick: I'm glad you understand that. You should also understand that if you hurt her in any way, I will find you and make you pay for it.
Ruby: Oh, you're here already. Have you been waiting for a long time? Don: A few minutes. I had a very interesting discussion with your friend. Ruby: Riddick? What did you talk about? Don: Tell me again, what is he to you? What does "a bit more than a friend" really mean? Ruby: He takes care of me and he's a friend of my uncle. Why do you ask?
Don: He's scary. How many of your dates has he managed to scare away so far? Ruby: There haven't been any dates. Don: I can see why. Ruby: It's not because of him. I guess he is overprotective, but he just wants to make sure I'm safe. Don: I certainly wouldn't want him to come after me. - Shall we go?
Orlock: Riddick... Riddick: Max, don't start. I know what you're going to say. Orlock: It's not that. I just wanted to ask you something. Riddick: All right, go ahead. Orlock: Why would she go out with him? I thought he... Riddick: Misunderstanding. Nothing happened, and he explained that to Ruby when he came here the following day.
Orlock: Are you trying to say he's all right? Riddick: I wouldn't go that far, but Ruby seems to think he is and it is really up to her. Orlock: Yes, I guess it is. - I think I've been really stupid. Do you think she hates me for that? Riddick: No, she doesn't. After all, she is your friend. But maybe you should tell her what you just told me.
Riddick: Max, there's something I want to ask you. - How many people of your kind do you know? Orlock: There aren't many of us, probably 4 or 5 in the entire country and none of them around here. Riddick: How about people who aren't exactly your kind, but almost? Orlock: There isn't anything you could call "almost my kind." It is an either-or situation. There is no in-between. - Why are you asking? Riddick: No reason. Just wondering.
Kitty: There's no harm in trying, so we'll see how it goes. Riddick: You really enjoy match-making, don't you? Kitty: Of course, but this time it isn't about me having fun. I want Max to be happy. - Riddick, could you come home a bit later tonight? I'm having a visitor who would rather not meet you. Riddick: Anika? Sure, I'll come home later. I'll wait for Ruby to hear how the date with Don was. Kitty: I knew you would.
Anika: Is he here? Kitty: No, he isn't. Don't worry. - You know, I've never seen you apprehensive before. Anika: I'm not afraid, if that's what you mean. Kitty: Really? You should be, if you continue the way you have behaved so far. Do you have any idea how much effort he has put into being polite and nice to you? Still, you just keep on talking nonsense.
Kitty: You know, it's no wonder he got a bit angry the last time you were here. Anika: A bit? He threw me out! Kitty: Grandma, it seems to me that you don't understand at all what kind of a man he is. Remember what grandfather could do when he got angry? That was nothing compared to what Riddick is capable of. Why do you think I wanted him? Anika: You're not serious. You can't be.
Kitty: Of course I'm serious. Anika: You do know what that kind of men are like, don't you? No guarantees. Kitty: In life there are no guarantees. Anika: You're more like Chase than I ever realized. Kitty: I just didn't want to get bored to death with some dimwit you thought would be an ideal match. You must understand that I would have driven him crazy in no time. Just for fun, if nothing else. Riddick is different.
Riddick: So how was it? Your date with Don? Ruby: He was nice. We are not going to see each other again, though. Riddick: Why not? I thought you liked each other. Ruby: You scared him. I know you mean well, but could you try to be a little less scary? Riddick: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to cause any problems.
Ruby: You don't need to feel too bad about it. I don't think you were the only problem. Riddick: What else went wrong? Ruby: When I told him you are a friend of my uncle, he asked who my uncle is. I'm not quite sure, but it seemed to me that he didn't like the answer. Riddick: So, you think he knows Hagrid, or about him, and the two of us were a bit too much for him? Ruby: Something like that. I really don't know.
