Bea: Sorry, Chester. I didn't mean it like that... Chester: It's all right. Daniel & Lisa: AAAAAAAA!!!! Monster!
Chester: They should try for the track team. I've never seen anyone that small run that fast. Bea: Was that a bad thing to do? Chester: No, it wasn't. They started it. I heard what he said. - Who's your friend? Bea: This is Eva. Eva, this is Chester. He's a friend. Eva: Are you sure? Chester: Don't worry. I'm very nice to nice people. The likes of those two, on the other hand...
Eva: Bea, were you lying? Bea: About my family? No. Kitty's grandma told her and then Kitty told me last night. Chester: So, you're as good as it gets. I've always wanted to see one like you. Bea: Why? I'm still just me. Who cares about that stuff? I just said it, because I wanted to make Daniel shut up. Chester: I understand. Still, you are on the opposite end of the scale compared to me. I'm glad to see that you are quite nice and normal in spite of that.
Lenore: Chester. I should have guessed. Chester: What do you mean? Lenore: Daniel and Lisa ran inside, telling about a monster. What did you do? Chester: Nothing. I just stood there and smiled. Lenore: Smiled. I see. Well, I can't prevent you coming here to pick Miriam up, but I'd appreciate it, if you tried not to scare the other children. Bea: I wasn't scared. Eva: Me neither.
Kitty: Bea, I'm sorry I'm late... Oh, hi Chester. Lenore, is something wrong? Chester: Hi Kitty. You just missed all the fun. Lenore: Chester, I knew you did it on purpose. Kitty: Did what? Chester: I'm sure Bea will explain. Lenore: I need to go now, but Chester, remember what I said. Chester: I'll be good, teacher. I promise.
Miriam: Chester, where's mom? Chester: She's still at work, so she asked me to pick you up. - Kitty, this is my sister Miriam. Kitty: Sister? Chester: If you're wondering how she can be so cute, it's because she's adopted.
Kitty: I see. It's very nice to meet you Miriam. Do you already know Bea? Miriam: We have some classes together. Kitty: Maybe you could come and visit us sometime with Chester. Bea: That would be nice. We could ask Eva too. And Henry. Miriam: Henry? Chester: Bea means uncle Henry. Bea likes stories just as much as you do.
Later: Kitty: She didn't do it to be mean. I think she just got sick of his constant nasty comments. Riddick: And you gave her the perfect weapon. Kitty: I guess so. I just thought she had the right to know. It is a big deal with our kind. Remember what I said about connections? She won't need to worry about those. A bigger worry may be how to find out who's a real friend and who just wants to be associated with someone like her. Riddick: Well, at least there's Eva. She liked Bea long before this came out.
Riddick: So, was that pedigree thing the problem all those years ago? Kitty: Yes. Grandma was too common. The family shut grandfather out after the marriage. He didn't care and went on to make a fortune by himself while his family couldn't even keep what the previous generations had collected. So, Bea has a pedigree, but there's nothing to inherit, and I'm a half-breed looking forward to inheriting a fortune.
Riddick: Do the people in your community have time for anything else than keeping track of who is acceptable and who isn't and the reasons why? Kitty: It is kind of boring, isn't it? And it's a battle they're bound to lose. - That brings me to the next subject. Riddick: Which is? Kitty: You know how Henry always talks about letting nature run its course? Well, it seems that nature's course is a bit different from our plans.
Riddick: Do you mean what I think you mean? Kitty: Yes. There's a little Riddick on the way. - Are you really saying you hadn't noticed anything? Riddick: Well, I did notice, but I thought... you know, now that you're at home... Kitty: You thought I was getting fat! Riddick: I didn't mean it like that. - Why didn't you tell me earlier?
Kitty: Anything can happen during the first months and I wanted to be sure before telling you. There was no hurry as there was no choice to make. Even though this is not what we planned, I want the baby. Do you? Riddick: Of course. I have told you that if you want children, then we'll have children. Kitty: And you don't mind that the baby most probably won't be your kind? Riddick: If the baby is going to be anything like you and Bea, I'd say we're lucky.
