Wendy: You have no idea how relieved I am to hear that. Riddick: And I'm relieved you're the one handling this. Henry is the most decent guy I have ever met. He just had the bad luck to date someone who wasn't decent. Wendy: I hope you understand that I will have to talk about this with both of them. Don't worry, I won't be dragging anyone into the station. I'll call Kitty and arrange a visit, so I can talk with Mary at home. I need you to be there too. Riddick: All right. I just want this thing cleared up as quickly as possible.
Later: Kitty: Wendy called me. Riddick: I know. She told me you settled for tomorrow. I already arranged it with Kermit. He doesn't mind me being absent for couple of hours as it's in the afternoon. - Do you know what this is all about? Kitty: Mary told me. I understand why she did it, but it was a really bad idea. Riddick: That's what I said too. Well, I'm sure everything will be fine once Wendy has spoken with both Mary and Henry.
Next day: Chase: So, you finally figured out a way to get money from grandma. Congratulations. Kitty: We wanted Bea. We would have figured out something else, if grandma had said no. Besides, it's my money. Chase: Sure. Whatever you say. So, where is the child? I'd like to see her. Kitty: She's upstairs with Mary. I'll go and get her. Chase: No need. I can go there myself. Kitty: No, you can't. I need to explain to her first who you are, so you won't scare her. Chase: Oh, it's like that.
Kitty: What's that supposed to mean? Chase: Nothing. That just confirmed my idea that there's no way anyone in their right mind would have given you a normal child. Kitty: She's perfectly normal, just a little traumatized by all the recent changes in her life. Chase: Traumatized. Have you been talking with a shrink or did you come up with that yourself? Kitty: You know, I'm not so sure I want her to meet you. Chase: Oh, come on. I'll be extra nice. After all, it's not her fault she ended up here. Kitty: All right, but you better be nice. Wait here.
Kitty: Bea, this is my sister Chase. Chase: Hello Bea. It's nice to meet you. Bea: Hello. Chase: There's no need to hide behind that chair. I'm not going to do anything. Won't you come closer, so I can have a proper look at you? Bea: No.
Chase: Has Riddick been teaching her bad manners? Kitty: Chase, remember what you promised. Bea, you can go back to Mary now. Chase and I need to talk. Bea: Okay.
Chase: Does she speak more than one word sentences? I thought they were supposed to speak more by that age. Kitty: She doesn't speak much when there are strangers present. Chase: So, I'm a stranger now? Kitty: Yes, you are a stranger to her. I know patience isn't one of your virtues, but it's the only thing that works with her. Chase: It doesn't matter. She's not my problem.
Later: Kitty: It's all right, Bea. She isn't here.
Bea: I don't like her. Kitty: You can't really know that. You only saw her for a moment. Bea: I don't like her. Kitty: All right. You don't need to like her. Just try to be polite, okay? Bea: Okay.
Kitty: Oh, hi Wendy. Wendy: Hi Kitty. And I suppose this is Bea. Hello Bea. Bea: Hello. Who are you? Wendy: I'm Wendy. I came to see Mary.
Kitty: Mary is in her room. She's waiting for you. Riddick: All right. Bea, stay here with Kitty. We need to talk with Mary alone. Bea: Okay.
Riddick: Mary, Wendy is here. She needs to ask you some questions. Mary: Yes, I know. It's about that stupid joke. I should never have said it. Wendy: Why don't we start at the beginning? Riddick already told me about it, but I need to hear what you have to say.
Bea: Has Mary been bad? Kitty: No, she hasn't. Why do you ask that? Bea: Mom was bad and then people like Wendy took her away. Kitty: How did you know what she is? Don't worry. Nobody is taking Mary anywhere. Wendy just needs to ask her a few questions, that's all.
Wendy: I think that's all. I still need to talk with Henry. Mary: Is he in trouble because of what I said? I didn't mean anything like this to happen. I just wanted to make Kat feel bad, because she had been so mean. Wendy: No, he is not in trouble. It's just a formality. As it really was just a joke, there won't be a case, but you should be more careful about what you say. Mary: I know that now. Riddick: Now that everything is in order, maybe we could join Kitty and Bea. Wendy, as Bea actually talked to you, you may be able to get to know her better.
Bea: Mary! Kitty: Bea, it's all right. Wendy, would you tell her you're not taking Mary away? Wendy: I'm not taking Mary anywhere. We just talked a little and now everything is in order. Bea: Really? Wendy: Yes. Did you think I was going to take her away? She hasn't done anything.
Later: Riddick: Why did Bea get so nervous about Wendy? Kitty: She saw what Wendy is. I don't know how, but she saw immediately that Wendy is like the people who took her mother away. Riddick: And she still spoke to her. Very curious. Is she all right now? Kitty: Yes, she's fine. She just feared Wendy was going to take Mary away. Riddick: She's really fond of Mary. Kitty: I've noticed that too. Fortunately, it's mutual, so Mary isn't getting annoyed.
A couple of days later: Kitty: Did you already speak with Wendy? How did it go? Henry: She was very polite. She came to see me at work and only gave her name to the security guard, so nobody knows I was visited by the police. Kitty: Very thoughtful of her. Henry: Yes. She had also done quite extensive background work and it seems that this isn't the first time Kat has pulled a stunt like this. Kitty: I guess you were lucky to find out about her at such an early stage.
Kitty: Henry... I know it's not my business, but did something happen with Chase? Henry: What makes you think so? Kitty: Well, she was quite taken by you at first, but now... Henry: I might as well tell you. She seemed to think that one arrangement is as good as another, so she offered to take your place. She didn't put it that way, but that's what it comes down to. Kitty: I thought she might try something like that. She really is... Henry: Kitty, just let it be. And please don't tell her that you know. I've had quite enough of vindictive women. All I want is to be left alone.
Mary: Hi Henry. - Look, I'm really sorry about the mess... Henry: It's all right. You don't need to feel bad about it. Everything is fine. Bea: Are you a monster? Henry: No, I'm not. I'm Henry. What's your name? Bea: I'm Bea. Henry: It is very nice to meet you Bea. And I really am not a monster. I'm a feline like you, I just look a bit different.
Bea: Are you really like me? Henry: Yes. Bea: But you're so big. Henry: In my family, men are usually big. Bea: Why? Kitty: You try to explain that while I go and check that everything is all right in the kitchen. I have a tendency to seriously over-cook the dinner.
