Riddick: Relax. Everything is fine. All I am interested in is that he stays away from Mary. Henry: I'll make sure he understands that. How are things otherwise? How's Rosie? Riddick: She can already say a few words, but she does that only when absolutely necessary. I don't understand it. It's as if she doesn't want to speak. Henry: I'm sure she'll be fine, but in case she won't, have you thought about sign language? Riddick: She's not deaf. Henry: No, but she's not speaking either. It's not giving up. Think of it as a backup. You should talk about it with that specialist. - I better get back to work.
Schizo: Henry's a really big guy. What do you think, if you fought with him, who would win? Riddick: I would never fight with him. He's my friend. Schizo: But hypothetically... All right, I won't say another word. Where's Ruby? Riddick: She's in the back room. She won't be long. Schizo: Well then, Abby, I think I'll have another beer. Riddick: Schizo, what do you really think about Scooter? Were you just trying to put Ruby at ease when you said he's harmless? Schizo: Yes. You too, I suppose. I don't trust him a bit, but at least Ruby will be fine tonight. Riddick: So, you're taking her home? That's good.
Schizo: Has she told you about the furry fellow? That he's been sneaking around? Riddick: Has he? After all this time? I had no idea he's that persistent. Schizo: He says he wants to make sure Ruby is safe. Just think about what he could do, if Scooter starts harrassing Ruby. Riddick: I guess it would solve the problem for good, but it would upset Ruby. Schizo: Exactly. That's why it is best to make sure Scooter stays away. I'd prefer the furry fellow to stay away too, but how do you tell someone like that to beat it?
Ruby: What are you two planning now? Schizo: Planning? Nothing. Just small talk. Ruby: Right. Shall we go now? I'm ready. Schizo: Just a second, I'll finish this. Riddick: Ruby, why haven't you told me about Zeke? That he's still sneaking around? Ruby: Schizo, you didn't need to tell him. Riddick, just leave it. He's not doing any harm, if you don't count scaring my neighbor. I'm sure he'll go away eventually.
Late that night: Kitty: ...and it seems that mother is considering the proposal. Riddick: Good for her. Or do you disagree? Kitty: I know almost nothing about the guy. How could I agree or disagree? Riddick: Don't you think a husband would be a better idea than constantly changing boyfriends? Are you worried that he's after her money? Kitty: It's possible. I guess we'll just have to wait until we've met the guy.
Riddick: Scooter's back. Kitty: How do you know? Don't tell me he's after Ruby. Riddick: Actually, he came to apologize for the way he behaved, but things went wrong when Schizo arrived. Kitty: Damn. How bad was it? Riddick: He got very angry. Apparently, he thinks he's been seeing a shrink for nothing as Schizo wasn't just in his imagination. Kitty: How convenient for him to forget that alcohol was his main problem.
Kitty: How did Ruby take it? Riddick: She's a bit shaken, but Schizo took her home and I don't believe Scooter knows where she lives. Kitty: It's not difficult to find out something like that. Riddick: I hope he doesn't. Ruby's furry bodyguard hasn't gone anywhere and things could get really ugly. Kitty: Zeke? What is he thinking? After all this time? Riddick: Who knows? At least he hasn't been threatening Schizo.
Next morning: Ruby: I guess this isn't how it normally goes when you're asked to stay for the night. Schizo: Don't worry, I slept very well. I can sleep on a concrete floor, if necessary, and this was much better. You know, I never get served breakfast in bed. You're spoiling me. Ruby: I like doing that. I felt a lot safer with you here. I guess you think I'm silly. Schizo: I understand perfectly, and I will stay here any time you want me to. Especially if I get breakfast in bed.
Schizo: Ruby, I've been meaning to ask you about your uncle. What does he think about me? Not that it matters very much to me, but I know you care about his opinion. Ruby: I... I don't know. I haven't told him. Schizo: What's the problem? Are you ashamed of me? Ruby: No, of course not. It's just that he's so much like Riddick. Schizo: Thinking of your best interest and trying to stop you from doing what you want? Ruby: Not exactly, or maybe a bit. I don't know. Schizo: Well, whatever it is, you need to tell him, because somebody is going to, sooner or later.
Schizo: Was that the doorbell? Are you waiting for a visitor? Ruby: No. Maybe it's Albert. Schizo: If it's Scooter, just tell him we are planning a ritual sacrifice and we haven't yet decided what, or who, to sacrifice. Ruby: Do you think he knows where I live? Schizo: I'm sure he doesn't. Do you want me to go and see who it is? Ruby: No, this is my home. I'm not going to let him scare me. I'll go.
Mary: Bea, it's almost time to go, but before that, Rosie wants to see the dollhouse again. Bea: It's my dollhouse. Mary: Of course it is, but Rosie loves it. She won't break anything. She just wants to look at it. Bea: All right.
Mary: So, what have you got there? Bea: Nothing. Mary: I can see it's something. Why won't you let me see? It can't be that bad.
Mary: Is that your mom? Why have you been hiding it? Bea: I thought Kitty wouldn't like it. Mary: Bea, it's a photo of your mom. Of course you can have it. - Rosie, come and have a look at this.
Mary: See, it's Bea's mom. Rosie: No. Mary: Yes, it is. That's Bea's mom. Doesn't she look nice? Rosie: Kitty ma. Mary: Yes, Kitty is Rosie's ma, but that is Bea's ma. Rosie: Kitty ma! Mary: Yes, of course, Kitty ma. How silly of me.
Ruby: James. What are you doing here? James: Please listen to me. Ruby: There's nothing you can say that would interest me. James: Please. You're Mary's friend. Can't you talk to her for me? Explain things? I'd talk to her myself, but Riddick... Ruby: Doesn't want you anywhere near Mary, I know. I don't blame him.
Schizo: Who was it? Oh, it's Mr. "Can't keep it in my pants." What are you doing here? James: None of your business. Schizo: Not quite so. If you come bothering Ruby, it's very much my business. James: Are you saying you two...? Ruby, I thought you had a bit better taste in men than that. Ruby: You're being very rude. At least Schizo doesn't do anything improper with relatives. Schizo: Well, my cousin and I did run naked across the city park once in a dare... James: Pamela is not a relative! You're blowing it all out of proportion. Besides, I was 14 when I first met her, so it's not like I've known her all my life. Ruby: She's your stepmother! She's not only married, but she's married to your father!
Schizo: You're going to be front page news, boy. James: What do you mean? Ruby: Did you think Chase was interested in you? Even she's got some standards. And she really likes Mary. James: What are you talking about? Ruby: You and Chase. Mary said it will be in today's paper. You and Pamela too, I suppose. Schizo: I suggest you stop by a newsagent on your way to wherever it is you're going to hide for the next few months. This isn't going to blow over in a day or two. It's much too delicious.
Mary: Kitty, Rosie just said an entire sentence. Well, not exactly, but almost... Kitty: Did she? I knew she would! What did she say? Mary: Well, I think I said something I shouldn't have. You see...
Kitty: Don't feel too bad about it. Rosie seems just fine. I'm sure she's already forgotten all about it. Just don't mention it again when she's around. Mary: I won't. I didn't think... Kitty: Like I said, it's fine. I'll speak with Bea about it after school when Rosie's having her nap. By the way, don't mention your... um, Caroline either. Mary: I won't. "Kitty ma" it is. Rosie: Kitty ma! Kitty: That's right. And it makes ma very happy to hear that, Rosie.
Bea: Mary, we need to go now or we'll be late from school. Mary: All right, let's go. Bea: Kitty, the dollhouse is mine, isn't it? Kitty: Of course it is. Riddick made it for you. Bea: So Rosie won't go and play with it when I'm at school? Kitty: She won't, I promise. She's got quite enough toys of her own.
