Wendy: An ex-con. - Jack, let it go. Especially if you want to stay in good terms with Ruby. To her, Riddick is everything her father wasn't. She loves him. Jack: I can't believe I'm hearing this. Wendy: She was in a really bad shape when I first saw her. And now she's got a loving boyfriend and good friends, and she's probably going to have a long and successful business career. Jack: Yeah, business career running places owned by her uncle. There's another model citizen. Wendy: Ruby has nothing to do with that side of his business dealings. Speaking of that, how's it going? Any progress? I know you're keeping an eye on it.
Hagrid: I'm sorry for coming here this late, but we need to talk and I couldn't come to Bastet. Riddick: What's going on? Hagrid: Things are starting to look really bad. You know about my business affairs. Somebody's managed to dig up a little too much evidence. I may have to leave the country. Riddick: That bad? What can I do? Hagrid: For starters, stay out of it. The only reason I'm telling you is because I need to be sure that somebody's looking after Ruby. Riddick: I will, and so will Schizo. She'll be fine.
Hagrid: Good. Another thing is that I've made some arrangements. I transferred Bastet to Ruby as her mother's share of the business. That way nobody can take it away from her even if they seize all my property, which they might do. Riddick: Are you saying I'm getting a new boss? Hagrid: That's right. And probably you're getting a demotion as well, if I lose the other places. Riddick: I can take that. You know I don't really need a job anyway. Hagrid: I know. I appreciate everything you have done. I wish there was some way I could pay you back for all you've done for Ruby.
Riddick: Everything I have done, I did because I wanted to. There's no need to pay anything. And I will continue looking after her also in the future. Although, she's getting better at it herself all the time. - Are you going to tell her? Hagrid: I can't. She was asking about it the other day. If it's true what people say. She has always looked up to me. How can I tell her the truth? Riddick: Do you want me to do it? After you've gone, if you need to go? Hagrid: Would you? Tell her I never hurt anybody who didn't deserve it.
Kitty: What did he want? Riddick: To make sure I'll take care of Ruby, if he needs to disappear. Kitty: Disappear? Ruby's going to be miserable. He's the only relative she's got left. I mean, if you don't count Kevin, but who does? Riddick: I know, but at least she's got us and Schizo. Kitty: And Max. Don't forget Max. He'd still do anything for her. Riddick: I guess he would.
Kitty: So, what about that friend of her father's? Riddick: Jack? I wasn't there when he and Wendy were, I was interviewing the candidates. Ruby says Jack's all right, that he was always nice to her. It seems that he didn't know anything about what was going on. Kitty: I hope so. If he did and didn't do anything about it, I'll skin him alive. Riddick: Calm down. He's a cop. Kitty: So?
Kitty: I told Mary about our plans for a new house. Riddick: How did she take it? Kitty: She's ready to move tomorrow, if it means she'll get her own room. Riddick: I didn't know she wants it that badly. She likes Bea and she has never said anything. Kitty: At her age, a girl needs some privacy. And if Bea and Rosie shared a room, we'd get some privacy as well. - So, do we start looking? Riddick: Why not? But we're not selling this one. Kitty: Of course not. Finding a tenant for a house like this should be easy.
Couple of days later: Riddick: Ruby told me about you. Jack: And I know who you are. Wendy says you have changed, but I don't believe in change, not when it comes to cons. Riddick: Doesn't matter what you believe. Jack: Wendy also said Ruby sees you as a some sort of surrogate father. Riddick: I did what I could for her. Still do. Jack: Why? Why would you care for a total stranger?
Riddick: What would you have done? I'm sure you know what often happens to runaways. - Look, you don't need to like me and I don't need to like you, but as it seems that Ruby likes both of us, could we just try to be civil to each other? For Ruby's sake? Jack: All right, but one wrong move and I'm going to get you. Riddick: You won't, because there won't be any wrong moves. Never has been.
Schizo: I'd love to hear what they're talking about. Ruby: Jack doesn't like Riddick. Schizo: What did you expect? He's a cop. - What's he like? Ruby: He's all right. Mom said that she had an affair with him before she and dad got married. And I know he was devastated when mom died. He had a terrible fight with dad. Schizo: Did he blame your dad for her death? Or am I asking something I shouldn't? Ruby: I... I'd rather not talk about that. Schizo: It's all right. Like I have said, you don't need to tell me anything you don't want to.
Anika: Pedigree and money? That's wonderful! That's the sort of friends Bea should have. It may turn out to be very useful in the future. Kitty: Bea doesn't choose her friends based on who's useful. She likes Bibi. She also likes Miriam, Eva and Nadine, although they are normal kids. Anika: But you said that Nadine's almost got a pedigree. That means she's all feline. Even that is better than... Kitty: Better than being a half-breed. Thanks, grandma. It's nice to know how much you value us. Anika: I didn't... I didn't mean it that way.
Kitty: I know. You just got a bit carried away. I must admit I was impressed by Bibi as well. She's a very well behaved and nice little girl. Anika: Well, of course she is. Anyone from a good family like that would be. Kitty: Not everyone, not even close. And we don't know if she's from a good family, they've just got loads of money. Who knows, they might be into organized crime. Relax, I'm just kidding. - Bibi's bodyguard Delilah made quite an impression on Chester. Anika: Delilah? A female bodyguard? Kitty: You know, one of them.
Anika: Don't talk to me about them! Kitty: Don't you think it's time to forgive and forget? You know it didn't mean anything to grandfather and anyway, you can't judge them all on the basis of one... Anika: I said don't talk to me about them and I mean it! Kitty: All right. Calm down, you scared Rosie. She's not used to seeing you like that. Anika: I'm sorry, but you should have known better... Somebody's at the door. Are you expecting a visitor? Kitty: No. Maybe it's Chase. She never calls beforehand.
Kitty: What are you doing here? Brian: I wanted to see you. Anika: Well, I never... Where did that one crawl out from? Brian: Still as subtle as ever. It's nice to see you too, Anika. Anika: I thought you'd be dead already. Brian: I'd say you're closer to that than I am. Kitty: All right, that's enough. Grandma, maybe you should go. I need to talk with my father. Anika: I'm going, but I really don't understand why you bother. And he doesn't deserve to be called a father.
Ruby: You didn't need to wait for Schizo to leave. He's really nice. Jack: It's not about that. I wanted to talk to you alone. This is a bit difficult as it is... Ruby, I'm sorry I have to ask you this, but do you know where your uncle is? Ruby: No, I haven't seen him in a couple of days. He doesn't come here that often. Why do you want to see him? I thought you don't like him. Jack: We have a warrant for his arrest. Ruby: Arrest? Why? He hasn't done anything! Jack: I'm afraid he has. I'm really sorry about this, but I'm just doing my job. I'm not taking part in the actual investigation, conflict of interest and all that, but I need to look for him anyway.
Riddick: Ruby, what's the matter? What did he say? Ruby: He wanted to arrest uncle Hagrid. Riddick: So, it has gone that far. He was afraid it would. Ruby: What do you know about it? Riddick: Not much, but I suspect Hagrid's out of the country by now. I hope he is. Ruby: Why didn't he tell me anything? Riddick: To keep you safe. You can expect a visit from his lawyer soon, I think.
Ruby: Lawyer? Why? Am I in trouble? Riddick: No, you're not. You're my new boss. Ruby: What? Riddick: Bastet is yours. He said it's your mother's share of the business. Ruby: Mother didn't have anything to do with his businesses. Riddick: Don't tell that to anybody else, not even Schizo. In fact, you should forget it yourself. On paper, your mother was a partner, and because of that, this should all be safe.
Ruby: I don't understand any of it. Uncle Hagrid hasn't done anything. Why is this happening? Riddick: I'm afraid you're wrong. His businesses aren't all quite as legit as this one has always been. I guess Abby's too straight to have it any other way, and you should be grateful to her, because it will make all the difference. Ruby: Abby... what's she going to do now? I can't take care of all this by myself. Riddick: Yes, I think we'll need to talk with her about the new situation. I'm sure we can get her to stay at least for a while.
Brian: She hasn't changed a bit. Kitty: Yes, she has. A lot. Mother says you never understood grandma. Brian: What was there to understand? She thought I was after the family's money and made every effort to kick me out... Kitty... whose baby is that? Kitty: Mine and Riddick's of course. Why would I have a strange baby in my home? Brian: Yours... Are you saying I'm a grandfather? Kitty: I'm afraid so. - Her name is Rosie and she doesn't talk much, but if she calls you bad, you're out of here.
Brian: Grandfather. Imagine that. May I...? Kitty: Yes, you can pick her up. She'll let you know when she wants to get down. Brian: Hello Rosie. I'm your grandpa and I'm really glad to see you. Kitty: So, what have you been up to? Spent any time behind the bars lately? Brian: No, not after we last met. I've been working. Roadwork mostly. We're working just outside the city, so I thought... Kitty: You thought you'd come and check on us. We are all fine.
Brian: Even Chase? I've seen the tabloids. Kitty: She's having a blast. You know what she's like... wait, no, you don't know what she's like. You've been away most of our lives, remember? Brian: I remember. Kitty, can't you give me a second chance? I've been a lousy father. Would you let me try if I could be a better grandfather? Kitty: It's not entirely up to me, although I guess Rosie does have the right to know her grandfather. I'm not so sure about the other way round. I'll need to talk with Riddick and the girls. You see, the way things are now...
Schizo: What are you doing there? Don't tell me you're the new bartender. Riddick: I'm just standing here, hoping Ruby or Abby will come back soon. They are in Abby's office having a little discussion. Schizo: Discussion? What's going on? Riddick: I'm sure Ruby will tell you herself. What can I get you? A beer? Schizo: Yeah, I think that's the safest choice. Who knows what you would put into something more complicated. You're not exactly a pro. Consuming the stuff doesn't count.
Ruby: Abby's staying. Schizo: What does that mean? Was she going somewhere? Ruby: Schizo, I'll explain it all later. Riddick: I thought she would. She's not the type to leave when things get difficult. Schizo: Stop talking in riddles. I want to know what's going on. Ruby, is everything all right? Ruby: Everything's fine... except for uncle Hagrid. You see...
Riddick: Ruby told me you're staying. That's good of you. Abby: I couldn't leave now. She's not ready to take responsibility of everything. She's still got a lot to learn. Riddick: And what do you think about the Hagrid situation? Abby: He's a grown man. Whatever trouble he has got himself into, it's his business. It's got nothing to do with us, especially as he's not the owner anymore. Clever move, I must say. Riddick: He wanted to make sure Ruby is safe. Financially and otherwise. Abby: I guess you're "otherwise." Hagrid wouldn't trust Schizo that much.
Kitty: So you wouldn't be entering just Rosie's life. Mary won't be expecting anything from you, but if you want to be Rosie's grandpa, you'll get Bea in the same package. Brian: Sure, why not? I thought felines don't have foster kids. Kitty: Our family isn't exactly a model of feline behavior, as you know. Brian: You seem to be living quite comfortably. I guess the old b... your grandma is paying for all this. Kitty: No, she isn't. There were some financial arrangements regarding the inheritance, but that's none of your business.
Brian: Don't worry, I'm not after your money. I've got nothing to do with any of that, your grandma's lawyers took care of that before the wedding. I guess Riddick would be familiar with the procedure. Kitty: No, he wouldn't. We just got married and told everybody afterwards. Brian: Very wise of you. - How's your mother? Kitty: Fine. About to get married. Again. Brian: Again? How many have there been? Kitty: Enough for her to collect a small fortune of her own. - You?
Brian: No. No wife and certainly no fortune. Just an occasional girlfriend, but they always took off once I was sent to jail. Kitty: And now? You said you haven't been in after we met. Brian: Too busy working. Kitty: Maybe that's for the best. - I think you should go now. The girls will be home soon and I don't want them to meet you before I have talked with them. Give me your phone number and I'll call you to let you know the verdict. Brian: Verdict. That's what this feels like.
