Kitty: Did you have nice time with... what's his name? Toffee: Maurice. Oh yes, it was lovely. It's so refreshing to be able to discuss things over breakfast with somebody who reads more than just the sports pages. Kitty: Where did you meet him? Toffee: We went to school together. We've been in touch occasionally and now he has moved back here. He's a very dear friend of mine. Kitty: How dear? Toffee: He has asked me to marry him.
Kitty: You can't be serious. Is he rich? Toffee: Kitty... At my age you need to start thinking about other issues than money. Of course, he is a psychiatrist, so he does earn quite well, but that's beside the point. Kitty: All right. I'm sorry. Is he feline? Toffee: Yes. He would even have a pedigree, if it weren't for a small indiscretion by his grandmother. Kitty: And he wants to marry you? Despite Chase and me? Toffee: He loves me and besides, he has a small physical disadvantage, but we can talk about all that later.
Toffee: So, how are things here? You look a bit tired. Kitty: It's Mary. I guess you have heard what happened with James? Toffee: Chase told me. She didn't tell me what the guy did, but she said Mary was upset. Kitty: That's right. And she's been missing her mother. I'm afraid I'm not much of a substitute. Toffee: Don't be too hard on yourself. Even bad parents aren't easy to replace and I have understood that her mother was a good one. Kitty: Oh yes. If you ask Riddick, he might say she was a bit too good. Toffee: What does that mean? Kitty: She didn't share Riddick's views on certain issues...
Toffee: Sounds very reasonable to me. To you too, I suppose. Kitty: Yes, but I promised Riddick I wouldn't contradict him. Toffee: Men are always like that. Well, I guess you know what you're doing. - Did you know that Chase is after James? Some sort of revenge on behalf of Mary. Kitty: Riddick told me a scandal is in the works. I wish Chase could figure out better ways of revenge than sleeping with the guy. Toffee: You know what she's like. Besides, she's right. What's the point of plotting devious plans, if you can achieve the result with less effort and have fun at the same time?
Scooter: Hi, Ruby. Ruby: What are you doing here? Scooter: I came to see you. Ruby: I don't think I like that. Scooter: I came to tell you that I'm sorry about what happened. You see, I've been seeing a shrink and he made me understand how badly I behaved towards you. Ruby: And what's this? Some twelve-step thing? Scooter: Something like that. Will you forgive me?
Schizo: Well, well, look who's here. Have you been sleeping soundly? Scooter: Eeek! It's him! Don't tell me you can't see him! Ruby: Of course I can see him. That's Schizo. I saw him all the time. We were just winding you up. Schizo: And I'd say we did a wonderful job. Scooter: Winding me up?! Are you saying I've been seeing a shrink all this time just because you have a sick sense of humor? I take back all I just said. I'm not sorry! You're the one who's crazy! You and that creep friend of yours!
Riddick: What's going on? Scooter: You! I suppose you were in it too. You must have been. Riddick: I see you have met Schizo. Scooter: You're all crazy! Insane! Riddick: Calm down or I will have to remove you from the premises. Scooter: No need, I'm going. Imagine that I was actually apologizing to that little b... Riddick: Be careful. You already have a record for harrassing Ruby. It would be really easy to get you into trouble with the law again.
Riddick: Ruby, are you all right? Ruby: I'm fine. I didn't know he was back. Riddick: He has been for some time. I didn't tell you, because I knew it would upset you. Schizo: I'm sure he's harmless. Ruby, just forget him. Ruby: He was angry. Riddick: I agree with Schizo. Scooter is probably harmless, but let me know, if he tries to approach you again.
Kitty: Mother was here earlier. What have you been doing with James? Chase: She told you? Having a bit of fun. Kitty: You're trying to upset Charles. Chase: Of course, but in some ways it's a pity that it's all about creating trouble. You see, James is good, and I mean really good. I guess he has had a lot of practice, unless it's natural talent. Kitty: I don't think I want to hear about that.
Kitty: How long are you going to go on with it? Chase: As long as possible, which isn't long, unfortunately. He might be a jerk, but it's going to take some time to find someone else who knows so well what he's doing. Kitty: I said I don't want to hear. Chase: What's your problem? I could give some good tips you and Riddick could... Kitty: Stop it! Have you even thought about what could have happened? Mary and a guy like that... Chase: So that's the problem. You're underestimating her. She may be inexperienced, but she's not stupid.
Kitty: I'm worried for Mary. I suppose there's no way of keeping her out of the scandal. Chase: Of course there is and I'd love to know how you do it. Kitty: What do you mean? Chase: I gave a journalist an interview. I know, grandma will have a fit. That can't be helped. The interview will be in tomorrow's paper. I told the journalist to keep Mary out of it and to spread the word that my sister will come after anyone who writes even one word about Mary. You should have seen his face. They're terrified of you. Kitty: Good. That's exactly how it's supposed to be.
Chase: Did you hear about Maurice? Kitty: Yes, mother told me. Have you seen him? Chase: No. I wonder what's wrong with him. Mother wouldn't be hiding him, if he was all right. Kitty: She mentioned some "physical disadvantage." Do you have any idea what that means? Chase: Maybe he's ugly as sin, although she would never even think of marrying someone like that. He is a psychiatrist, but that's not a physical disadvantage... Kitty: I guess we'll just have to wait until she's ready to introduce him to us.
Charles: I know you told me to come back after the divorce, but I couldn't wait. Catsy: Are you saying you're going to get a divorce? Charles: Yes. I'm afraid it'll be public and messy. Catsy: I knew it would be. I hope you know I'm not going to be your little secret this time. Charles: I don't want you to. I don't care what people say, I want to do what I should have done all those years ago. Tell me you still want me.
Catsy: Of course I do. I've never wanted anyone else. However, we need to wait until your divorce is clear. Who knows, maybe your wife has hired a detective to find out what you've been doing. Charles: I'm sure that wouldn't be beneath her, but there isn't anything she could use. We are just old friends and this is only the second time I've come to see you. Catsy: And that's how it should be. We've waited for a long time, we can wait a little longer.
Charles: I don't want to wait. Catsy: You must. I don't mess around with married men and you are still married. Even if it's just a technicality. Charles: You're enjoying this, aren't you? Making me suffer. Catsy: Of course I am. Did you expect anything else? After all you put me through? I must have my fun.
Chase: Hi, James. Are you busy? James: Never too busy to have time for you. Is everything all right? I thought you couldn't see me today. Chase: A change of plans, that's all. James: I'm glad about that. Chase: That won't last, but I'll enjoy it as long as I can. James: What are you talking about? Chase: Nothing.
Chase: Doesn't it bother you? To know who I am? James: Why would it? Chase: I just thought that you loved Mary. James: I do, but her father... Chase: An extraordinary man, isn't he? James: I think I'd rather call him a lunatic.
Chase: What did he do? Didn't anyone tell you what you were getting into? Mary is his little girl and always will be. Anyone who's easily scared shouldn't even try to date her. James: Let's not talk about that. I thought you came here for something else. Chase: And so I did. It's such a pity all good things must come to an end. James: You're acting strange. Chase: I guess I just need a distraction. Think you can manage that? James: Certainly.
Henry: I heard what happened. How is she? Riddick: Unhappy, but she'll be fine. Henry: Will James be fine? No more "do you want to be introduced to the pavement head first?" Riddick: He told you? Henry: He told me. He wanted to know if you would really do what you said. Riddick: What did you say to him? Henry: To stay away from Mary, what else?
Henry: He wouldn't say why Mary dumped him, but I know her and she wouldn't be so mad without a good reason. Did he do something to her? Riddick: No, it's about something he did before he even met her. Keep your eye on the tabloids and you'll find out sooner or later. Henry: That's a relief. This is a bit difficult for me as it is. You see, I need to work with him. I don't think I could have done that if he had done something to her. Although, I guess in that case he wouldn't be in any condition to work.
