Branigan: I don't understand how she could do something like that. Is Bea all right? Kitty: She's fine, although she now has a tendency to run upstairs and hide when the doorbell rings, because she's afraid it might be Chase. I'm sure it will pass. Branigan: Have you told me everything? Kitty: Well, there is of course the business about the photos. You see, Chase and I were a bit wild when we were young. Chase was the wilder one. Now it's in the web for everyone to see. Just search for her name and you'll see for yourself. - Branigan, I really am sorry for you.
Branigan: I think I should go now. I guess we won't be seeing each other again. Kitty: Why not? You haven't done anything wrong. You are still welcome to visit us. Branigan: Well, thank you. Maybe I will, but not for a little while. I need to get things sorted out in my head first.
Henry: Hi Kitty. Was that Branigan who just left? He seemed upset. He didn't even notice me. Kitty: I'm so sorry for him. I had to tell him about Chase, because she wouldn't do it herself. Henry: I see. I hope he'll get to his senses and forget all about her. I'm sure he can find someone nicer. - So, how is Bea? Kitty: Still scared of Chase, but getting better. She's been asking about you. I suppose you tell better stories than Riddick.
Henry: She's a nice little girl. It's a shame about her mother. Kitty: What do you know about that? Keep your voice down. The girls are upstairs and I don't want them to hear. Henry: There was a man involved. A lot older and a thoroughly crooked one. It was all his fault, but the jury didn't believe it, so she got 10 years. He got life without parole. Kitty: That bad? I had no idea. We were only told about Bea's mother, not about anyone else involved. I guess I didn't even want to know too much details.
Bea: Kitty, could I... Henry! Henry: Yes, it's me. I'm glad you're happy to see me. Bea: Come upstairs and tell us a story. Henry: Well, why not? Kitty, do you mind...? Kitty: Not at all. Have fun.
Henry: Hi Mary. Bea asked me to tell a story. I'm not sure if you're interested... Mary: Of course I am, but could you tell this time something I haven't heard before? Henry: Certainly. How about saber-toothed cats? That's a good story and also a true one as it's real history. Bea: Are those the cats with really long teeth? I want to hear about them. Mary: Sounds good. I don't know that much about feline history. It's a separate subject at school and it's really only for the felines.
Riddick: Is that Henry upstairs? Kitty: Yes. The kids are there with him. He's telling them one of his stories. Riddick: He seems to have a lot of those and some are certainly not suitable for kids. What I find a little disconcerting is that you can never tell which ones are true. Kitty: He's specialized in rare species. I'm sure he's seen all sorts of things. And I'm sure he knows what is suitable for kids and what isn't. - Don't go there just yet. Let them have fun.
Riddick: Are you saying I would spoil the fun? Kitty: If you go there, Henry will interrupt the story to talk with you. You can keep me company for a little while. I'm sure we won't be disturbed as long as the story is going on. Riddick: Sounds like a good plan.
Riddick: What about that friend of yours? Are you going to do it? Is it all set up? No last minute changes? Kitty: Everything is set up. No changes. Are you sure it's all right with you? Riddick: Quite sure. Like Anika said, you do what you have to do. I can sacrifice a little privacy for a good cause.
Henry: ...and some of us still carry some of the genes of those big cats. Bea: Is that why you're so big? But you don't have big teeth. Henry: That's because I'm not really one of them, I just have a little bit of them in me. Mary: Is that why Kat...? Henry: Maybe. Probably. She's like me, so genetically, we would have been an ideal match. Bea: What's genetically? And what about cats? Mary: It's nothing.
Riddick: Hi Henry. Kitty told me it was story time up here. Henry: Don't worry, it was about saber-toothed cats. Nothing too scary, just history. Bea: It would be fun to be a saber-toothed cat and have really big teeth. Riddick: Why? Bea: Then I would be scary and I would scare everybody who's mean, so they would become nice. Henry: Sounds reasonable. Unfortunately, you need to be born that way, you can't become one later. And nobody has been born that way in a very long time.
Next day: Chase: Why did you tell him? Kitty: Are you talking about Branigan? He had the right to know what he was getting into. Chase: Well, I'm sure you're happy to hear he isn't getting into anything. He left me. Kitty: I thought he would. I won't say I'm sorry. Well, of course I'm sorry for him. Chase: Do you understand what you have done? Grandma won't see me, mother won't see me, and now Branigan... Even Kevin declined to help. He just said something about conflict of interest. Kitty: You did it all by yourself.
Chase: How can you put all these people before me? I'm your sister. Kitty: All these people? Riddick is my husband and Mary and Bea are our children. Yes, our children, but I guess that is the sort of concept you cannot understand. Blood relations aren't everything. - If you don't have anything sensible to say, I suggest you leave now. Chase: And what exactly do you mean by sensible? Kitty: Well, apology would be a good way to start. A very sincere apology. But I guess you're incapable of something like that. - I think you should go now.
Chase: Are you throwing me out? Kitty: I guess you could see it that way. By the way, do you remember that girl we knew at school, one of the little people? The one who always wanted to be a journalist? Chase: Sure. She's got her own TV show nowadays. What about her? Kitty: I suggest you watch her show tonight. It'll be entertaining. Chase: What have you done?! Kitty: You'll see. You really should have left my family alone. - Goodbye, Chase.
Later that night: Ruby: Max, you're just in time. The show is about to start. Orlock: What can be so important? I thought you never watch these shows. Ruby: Not normally, but this is a very special show. Just wait and see. Orlock: All right. Whatever you say.
Interviewer: ...and so I have the pleasure of introducing a very special guest, Kitty. This is a very rare occasion indeed. This is the first time anyone in her family has given any interviews. Kitty, what made you agree to an interview? Kitty: Well, there have been all sorts of rumors about the recent events and I want to put the record straight, so to speak. Interviewer: I see. Maybe we'll start with those events you mentioned. There was a massive police operation recently due to the disappearance of one of your family members. Kitty: Yes. Let me tell you what really happened...
Orlock: Has she gone mad? Going to the TV to talk about their private life? What's Riddick going to say about this? Ruby: Nothing. He said that people are going to talk anyway, so Kitty might as well try to steer it to the right direction. She's not going to make a habit of it. Orlock: Is this a revenge? She's humiliating Chase totally. Ruby: If it is, I'm all for it. Can you imagine what kind of a person would say something like that to a little kid? It was so cruel. Chase deserves all of this. And I'm sure Kitty isn't finished with her yet.
Interviewer: You know, that sounds to me quite incredible. Why would someone do something like that? Kitty: She told me afterwards that it was a joke. Interview: If that was a joke, she must have a very bad sense of humor. - About your sister, I think there is one question everyone wants answered. Somebody has published certain photos of her in the web. Are those photos genuine? Kitty: Oh yes. Quite genuine. I know the person who took them.
Orlock: I think the web traffic is going to peak in the next few minutes. Have you seen those photos? Ruby: Well, I... Orlock: Confess. You were too curious. How bad is it? Ruby: She has no clothes on and they are a bit cheesy, but it could be a lot worse. Still, if I had pictures like that taken and they became public, I would probably never go out again. Orlock: Well, that doesn't really say much.
Ruby: What's that supposed to mean? Orlock: Excluding a couple of occasions induced by alcohol, you're a prude. No offense. In fact, I prefer people like you. - You know, there was a time when it was considered risque to show your ankles from under your skirt. Ruby: That's history. Orlock: Yes, I guess it is - for most people.
