Mary: So, did I understand correctly that you're going to be really, really rich one day? Kitty: Yes. You wouldn't believe it, considering how we live, but it's all grandma's fault. I'm not playing her game and she's not giving in. Mary: Riddick said she will hate me. Is that because it will be in the papers, if someone in the press finds out about me? Kitty: Yes, but you shouldn't worry about that. If someone starts asking questions, just tell them to come and ask me. They usually won't, but occasionally there's some new kid from out of town, who doesn't know me and will do it. You see, the older reporters never tell them about me. They consider it part of the on the job training, tee hee.
Mary: I don't think I understand... Kitty: Never mind. Let's just say that my name isn't in the papers very often, because the reporters know better. And even when it is, the story is usually very accurate and without any unnecessary embellishments. Mary: Wow. How do you do it? Kitty: You'll see the next time some naive junior reporter makes the mistake of thinking that I would be a great subject for an interview.
Riddick: Max, have you seen Ruby? Kermit is furious. Orlock: No, I haven't seen her after she went out a couple of hours ago. Riddick: I guess she didn't come back then. I wonder what she's doing. She's usually so careful about being at work on time.
Orlock: Is Kermit really angry? Is he going to fire her? Riddick: He wouldn't do that very easily because of Hagrid, but Ruby shouldn't abuse the situation like this. Orlock: You know she's been upset about the recent events. Riddick: Yes, I know. Still, Ruby is an adult and she should start acting like one.
Later that night: Marv: Riddick, could I have a word? Riddick: Sure, what's up? Marv: I've got someone in my car who belongs here. I thought maybe you could get her in without anyone noticing anything. Riddick: Ruby? What has she done now? Marv: She's drunk.
Riddick: Where did you find her? Marv: In a bar. I was alone, so Piggy knows nothing about this. Riddick: Well, that's a relief. What was she doing there? Marv: Getting drunk and causing all sorts of trouble. The owner was going to call the cops, but I persuaded him to forget it. I paid for the damages. Riddick: Thanks. How much? I'll tell Ruby to pay you back. And don't say there's no need, because there most certainly is. She must start taking responsibility for her own actions.
Riddick: Ruby, why did you do it? Ruby: It was fun... then Marv came... spoilsport. Riddick: You'd be in jail now without him. Ruby: So what? Who cares? Riddick: I do.
Riddick: And what is that you're wearing? Ruby: Is that a trick question? It's a dress, silly. Riddick: I can see that. It's just... um, it's a bit... Ruby: What? Short? Revealing? Good. Riddick: No, it isn't. Ruby: Don't you like it? I'll take it off. Riddick: No! Not before I have left. Ruby: Oh... tee hee... sorry... I didn't think... Riddick: Maybe we should talk about this tomorrow when you're sober.
Riddick: How did it go with your mother? Kitty: Better than I expected. Not very long time ago she would have been hysterical about something like this. Now she just said it's my problem. Riddick: That only leaves Anika then. Kitty: Yes. As much as I like to annoy grandma, I'd rather see her treat Mary well, but I guess there's little hope for that.
Kitty: But what's the matter with you? You look tired. Riddick: Ruby. She got drunk again. Without Marv, she would be sleeping in jail right now. Kitty: Oh dear. What's Marv got to do with it? Riddick: He found her in a bar and took her home. Paid for the damages as well. Kitty: Damages? Ruby? What's gotten into her? Riddick: I don't think Ruby actually broke anything, but she started it. I'll talk with her tomorrow. This has got to stop.
Next day: Riddick: Hangover? Good, you deserve it. Ruby: Are you angry? Riddick: Yes. Ruby: I'm sorry. Riddick: Not good enough. You say you're sorry, but you don't really mean it. If you did, you wouldn't do things like this.
Ruby: What do you want me to do then? Riddick: Start acting like an adult. First of all, you're going to pay Marv the money he paid to the bar owner for the damages. Ruby: What damages? Riddick: Marv will take you there, so you can ask the bar owner about what you did. Ruby: Do I have to? Riddick: Yes. The other option is that we'll go to your uncle Hagrid and tell him everything. Ruby: No, not that.
Riddick: All right. Then the second thing: I'm not asking you to like Mary, but you should at least try to behave. She lost her mother and doesn't have anyone else but me. Are you really saying you cannot relate to that situation? Ruby: No... no, I'm not. Not if you put it like that. I hadn't thought... Riddick: Maybe you should start thinking. And stop feeling sorry for yourself. Ruby: Do you hate me now? Riddick: I could never hate you. You know I love you, but you're making it really hard sometimes.
Wendy: Is Mary with you? Riddick: No. Kitty took her to see the school. Wendy: Have you talked about future with Mary? Riddick: No, not really. We'll work out present first. Why are you asking? Wendy: I think you should ask her about her career plans. Riddick: Do you know something I don't? Wendy: Maybe. Just ask her.
Riddick: How was the school? Did you like the place? Mary: It seems all right. The principal still remembered Kitty, tee hee. Riddick: After all this time? Kitty, what did you do? Kitty: It was nothing. They overreacted. There was really no need for the cops and fire department. I think we should forget that, it's old history. Mary: But it was so funny. He thought so too. Kitty: He didn't think so at the time. Neither did mother or grandma. I got grounded for months.
Riddick: Mary, what have you and Wendy been talking about? Mary: She just promised to tell me what I need to do, if I want to become a detective. Riddick: What?! Mary: So that's what Wendy meant. She said she'd like to see your face when I tell you, tee hee. Riddick: You... are you making fun of me? Mary: Oh, dad, don't take it so seriously. - But I am going to be a cop. Or maybe a lawyer and later a judge. Riddick: You are a bit small for a cop. Being a lawyer would probably be a better option. More profitable too.
Riddick: Kitty, what do you think? Kitty: Wendy seems to be doing well and she likes her job. And as we are oh-so-law-abiding citizens nowadays, I see no problem with either plan. Mary: Does that mean you haven't always been that way? Riddick: I think we will not comment that. Mary: Is that why Wendy has a problem with you? Riddick: What did she say? Mary: Nothing much, but I can see she doesn't really like you. Still, she was very nice to me. Riddick: That's good. I don't mind if she doesn't like me. We get along well enough. And you can be friends with her regardless of any problems she and I may have. They do not concern you.
Kitty: If you are seriously considering of becoming a police officer, it is certainly a good idea to have someone like Wendy to help you. It'll make things easier. Riddick: Although, I would rather see you going to university. Mary: Yes, well... There's a problem with that... You see, mother didn't leave any money. We were broke. It was all those medical bills... Riddick: Don't worry about that. If you want to go to university, we will make it happen somehow. Your mother and I never had a chance for anything much, but you're going to do better. Mary: I really don't understand why mother didn't want me to get to know you. You're so nice. Riddick: I was a different man when I was with your mother. It was a long time ago and I have changed. There was no way for her to know that.
Next day: Ruby: Kitty, is Mary here? Kitty: Not yet, but she will come here after school. Ruby: School? I didn't know... Kitty: How old did you think she is? She may look your age and sometimes even act that way, but she's a lot younger. Ruby: I didn't realize... When Mary gets here, would you tell her to come and see me? I think we need to talk.
Mary: Kitty said you wanted to talk. Ruby: Yes. I... I wanted to say I'm sorry about acting like a spoiled brat. I understand now that you probably need him more than I do. Mary: Why do you think you're going to lose him because of me? He isn't going anywhere. Ruby: I guess you're right. - Mary, what happened to your mother? Mary: She got sick. She was sick for a long time before she died. Ruby: So you knew what would happen? Mary: Yes. We both did. - How about your mother? I asked Riddick, but he didn't know. Ruby: She killed herself. I don't want to talk about it.
Mary: So, are we friends now? Ruby: Why are you so keen on being my friend? I'm sure you will find enough new friends at school. Mary: We have a lot in common. One thing in particular. Ruby: We don't need to be friends because of him. Mary: But we could be... I always wanted to have a sister. Ruby: Well, you're certainly acting like one. I have heard that little sisters are a terrible nuisance. - Max is going to come and watch TV with me. There's a new vampire movie and he always wants to see those. You can stay and watch it with us, if you want.
