Chase: How is it going with James? Mary: I don't want to talk about him. He's a jerk. Chase: Did he become an ex-boyfriend all of a sudden? What did he do? Mary: I can't tell you. It's so gross. Chase: Gross, is it? Now you must tell me. Did he do something to you? Mary: Why does everyone keep asking that? Of course he didn't. He wouldn't be just a jerk, if he had done anything, he'd be all scratched up and in jail.
Chase: That's my girl. Now, tell me. I'm sure we can have some fun. Don't tell me you don't want to. Mary: Why would you do anything? Chase: I like you and I like messing up jerks. Also, I've been a bit bored lately. Mary: All right, I suppose I can tell you. Although Ruby and Schizo already helped to arrange some trouble...
Chase: That was better than I expected. I'm sorry, I didn't mean it that way. Mary: I know. Chase: He seems to have a hard time resisting the temptation. How would you feel about a little scandal involving him and a feline with a very dubious reputation? Mary: You wouldn't. Chase: Why not? It would be fun. Just imagine his father's face. You'd be hitting two birds with one stone. I know about your encounter with Charles.
Mary: Dad's going to be mad. Chase: Why would he? You won't have anything to do with it. Just leave it to me. Mary: I'm not so sure about this... Chase: I am. Stop worrying. If anyone asks, you don't know anything. Besides, you haven't done anything. You just told aunt Chase what's bothering you. That's what aunts are for, you know. Mary: You're not my aunt. Chase: I am now. - Would you like some cake? Ice cream? Have anything you want, I'm paying. Mary: No, thanks. I don't feel like eating anything.
Riddick: So, what do you know about that phone call business? Ruby: Phone call? Riddick: So innocent and wide-eyed. You're almost fooling me, almost, but not quite. Schizo didn't know about what happened, so I suppose Mary told you. Was the phone call your idea? Ruby: How do you know about it? Riddick: I overheard him making the call. Ruby: You were eavesdropping! Riddick: No, I wasn't. He was just a bit careless, but at least he didn't use his mobile phone.
Ruby: There's nothing wrong in telling someone the truth. Riddick: Depends on the truth. Ruby: What James and his stepmom did... it was really gross. You're not supposed to do something like that. It's not as bad as what dad did, but it's still bad. Riddick: You're right about that and I can understand you're upset about it, but it really has nothing to do with you. Ruby: Mary is my friend, and I liked James.
Riddick: All right, I guess you've got grounds for your case. However, I think it would be best for you and Schizo to stay out of it in the future. I'm sure you have caused quite enough trouble already. Ruby: I'm not sorry for what we did. Mary didn't want to make the call, but she agreed to it.
Mary: How did you find me? Nobody knew I was seeing Chase. Did you follow me? James: Uh... of course not, I just happened to see you coming out of that cafe. Mary: Don't lie to me. You were following me. Do you know what guys like that are called? Losers. And guys who go to bed with their stepmom are losers too, so I guess that makes you a double loser. James: Mary, please... Calm down. You've got to listen to me. Mary: No, I don't! Let me go! James: Please, why won't you just listen for a few minutes?
Larry: Excuse me, but the young lady doesn't seem to... James: You stay out of this! Larry: I'm afraid I can't. Let her go. She obviously doesn't want your company. James: I told you to stay out of this.
Mary: Why did you hit him? He only wanted to help. James: I... It was his fault. He should have just disappeared. Mary: Nothing's ever your fault, is it? James: What do you mean? Mary: Women just jump on you, guys irritate you, so you have to hit them... It's never your fault. I don't understand how I could think you're a nice guy. You just wait when my dad hears about this.
Mary: Are you all right? Larry: I'll be fine. He wasn't the first one to hit me. I'm sort of used to it. Are you all right? Mary: Yes. He wasn't going to hurt me. He just wanted me to listen to assorted excuses for why he cannot say no to women. Larry: Ex-boyfriend? I'd say you're wise to get rid of someone like that. - I think what I need right now is a drink. Mary: Then you should come with me to see my dad. He'll want to know about this, and you can get a drink there.
Kitty: Is there a reason for your visit? Anika: Do I need to have a specific reason? Kitty: No, but you usually have. Anika: I just wanted to have company. Where's Rosie? Kitty: In bed. She was getting a bit cranky, so I thought a nap would be a good idea. Let's go upstairs. I need to check she's all right.
Anika: I suppose you know your mother went skiing with her new boyfriend. Kitty: She mentioned she would. How young is this one? I didn't bother to even ask her. Anika: Actually, he's almost her age. Some sort of a doctor. Kitty: Not a plastic surgeon, I hope. Anika: Kitty, there's something I want to talk about. Kitty: So you did have a reason. What is it?
Anika: It's a very old story and one I was hoping everyone had forgotten by now, but that friend of yours, Chester... It seems that his grandmother still remembers. He said he wouldn't tell anyone, but I've been thinking about it and I'm not sure I can trust him and I want someone to know how it really was. Kitty: You know, you're starting to make me worried. What's going on? Anika: It all happened before I met your grandfather...
Kitty: How could you keep that a secret all this time? Anika: I had to think about the family. Your grandfather said I should forget her. Kitty: You're saying I have an aunt somewhere and you have no idea where? Anika: I'm afraid that's how it is. I don't even know who adopted her. All I know is that it was a wealthy family who were not felines. She wasn't a feline baby. Kitty: How is that possible? The dominant genes... Anika: Aren't always dominant. You should know that by now.
Mary: ...and then he hit Larry. Riddick: Did he hurt you? Mary: No, he just wouldn't let go. Riddick: I'll have a word with him. Ruby, give Larry a beer. It's on me. Larry: Thanks. Riddick: No. Thank you. Most people probably would have been too scared to do anything. Larry: My mother always says that I'm going to get myself killed some day, sticking my nose into other people's business, but I can't just walk by and pretend I didn't see anything.
Riddick: Ruby, I need to go out for a little while. Will you be all right? Ruby: Sure. Abby's in the office and anyway, it's not that late yet. Riddick: Good. Mary, you should go home now. Don't worry about James, he'll be busy elsewhere. I assume I can find him in his hiding place? Mary: I suppose so. Where else would he go? What are you going to do? Riddick: Go and have a word with him. That's all you need to know. Mary: Don't be too hard on him. I don't want you to get into trouble because of him. Riddick: Don't worry, I won't.
Larry: I didn't like the sound of that. I mean, what did "I won't" refer to? Ruby: I kind of feel sorry for James, even though he is a jerk. You see, a stupid head will get your whole body hurt, and I think there is a whole lot of hurt in store for James. Riddick's furious. Larry: He didn't really look furious. He seemed very polite. Ruby: Of course he was polite to you. You helped Mary and got hurt yourself doing so. He won't forget that.
Charles: James! Is it true? James: What? Charles: Did you sleep with Pamela? James: I... uh... what makes you think I did? Charles: Stop that! Did you? Tell me the truth! James: I did, but it wasn't my fault. She started it. Charles: Son, you have no idea what you have done. This is perfect. James: What... are you crazy?
Charles: I know you know about the agreement, but did you know that if she cheats on me, she gets absolutely nothing? All you need to do is tell everything in court. James: Court? Are you getting a divorce? Charles: I wasn't going to tell you about it yet, but yes, I am going to get a divorce. It's going to be very public and it will be messy, but thanks to you, it'll be quick. James: What if I refuse? Charles: Do you want to see what it's like to pay for your studies yourself? No? I thought so.
