Chef: There's one thing I've been meaning to ask. What is it about Riddick that's so scary? He may not be a perfect gentleman, but he would never hurt you. Ruby: He looks like my dad. I can't help it, just seeing him makes me nervous. Chef: I understand. Is that the reason you can't talk to him? Would it be all right for me to tell him what you have told me? It would make things easier. Ruby: He said he wouldn't tell anyone, so I guess it's all right.
A little later: Chef: ...and that's why she's so scared of you. Riddick: Someone like me? Beating up a little kid like that? It's not going to be a civilized discussion, if I ever meet the guy. Chef: Then there's something else. Wasn't that Watson a bit iffy character? You know, the sort that wouldn't necessarily report to the police everything he was supposed to? Riddick: Possibly. Why?
Chef: I think she may need a doctor. She says she's fine, but I don't believe her. Riddick: Do you think she would see him? Provided we can promise he's not going to tell anyone anything? Chef: I can ask.
Riddick: Ruby, this is Dr. Watson. He won't tell anyone that he's been to see you. Officially he's here to see me. Ruby: All right. I suppose this has to be done or you won't stop bugging me about it. But it's nothing. I'm fine.
Kitty: What is going on? First you're confiscating my room for your secret discussions and now this. Riddick: I know you want to know, but I can't tell. And this is serious, so would you please make an exception and leave it alone? Kitty: How serious is it? Is she sick? With Watson here and everything... Riddick: Don't ask.
Riddick: So, how bad is it? Watson: Fairly bad, considering her size. But whoever did it knew when to stop. Who was it? Riddick: Her father. And apparently it wasn't the first time. Watson: I should have guessed. Well, at least she's safe now. Are you going to tell Wendy? Riddick: No, not until Ruby says it's OK. - What now? Watson: She needs rest. There isn't much else I can do. Except write a prescription for painkillers.
Riddick: We'll have to tell Kitty what's going on, so she will let you stay here. You'll be safe. No one's going to get in here, Toby will take care of that. Ruby: Do you think Kitty will let me stay? Riddick: She will probably want to take care of you herself when I tell her what's wrong.
Kitty: Why didn't you tell me? That was very silly of you. You're going to stay here until you're well again. Ruby: Thanks. Riddick said you would say so. But where are you going to sleep? Kitty: I will sleep on the sofa. It's fine, don't worry about me. You just concentrate on getting better.
Some time later: Riddick: Kitty said you wanted to talk. Ruby: Yes. I think it's time to speak with Wendy. Riddick: Are you sure? She will have to report it. Ruby: It's all right now. Remember, I said I would be 18 soon. Well, I am now and I want to get the police off my back. It still leaves the other problem, but it's a start.
Wendy: You've been hiding a runaway here? Great. Boss will love this. Riddick: Technically, she isn't a runaway anymore. She's 18 and can choose for herself. Wendy: But she was one when she came here. I consider this a serious error of judgement on your part. Riddick: I couldn't let anyone send her back. It was not safe. Wendy: I will talk with her and we'll see.
Riddick: Be nice to her. She's been through a lot and she's scared. Although, she probably won't be so scared of you, because you're a woman and you don't have a uniform. Wendy: Do you understand how bad that sounds? What is going on? Riddick: You'll have to ask her. I can't tell.
Kermit: How is she? Riddick: Getting better. It will take a little more time, though. Kermit: She should have said something, but I guess she wanted the job really badly. You know, she's very promising considering she has no experience. I want her back once she's well again. Riddick: I'm sure she will be happy to hear that.
Riddick: How did she end up here anyway? Kermit: Hagrid sent her after I promised to let her try. She's some sort of a relative of his. Do you think we should let him know? Riddick: I'll ask Ruby if it's OK for me to call him. Kermit: Good. I wouldn't want him to get mad at us for not telling. And by the way, Wendy isn't angry, she's just very bad at admitting she was wrong.
Riddick: There's a visitor for you. And Kermit asked me to tell you that he wants you back as soon as you're well again. Ruby: Really? That's wonderful. I thought I would have to leave. My start at the job hasn't been exactly a good one. And the visitor is uncle Hagrid? Riddick: That's right.
Hagrid: Hello, Ruby. How are you feeling? You should have told me how bad it was. Ruby: I'm fine. If I had told, you would have done something to dad and gotten yourself into trouble. Hagrid: You're always worrying about everyone else. It is time for you to start thinking about yourself. From now on, you tell me, if something happens. I won't do anything to him, I'll leave that to the police. I promise.
Riddick: Why did you send her here? Was it because you could make Kermit give her a job without too many questions? Hagrid: I couldn't let her stay at my house. Because of her father and also Kevin. I remembered you and your little "monster" friend, so I just persuaded Kermit to give her a chance. Riddick: Very clever. The one thing you missed was my resemblance to her father. Hagrid: Well, yes. I didn't notice it, probably because you were so polite and friendly when we met.
Chef: I see you're on your feet again. Feeling better? Ruby: A lot better. I wanted to come and thank you for all you did. Chef: I didn't really do that much. Just listened. But tell me something. How come it was so easy for you to talk to me? Ruby: Oh, you remind me of uncle Hagrid. You're a lot shorter, of course, but otherwise. And I didn't need to worry that you would go after dad and get into trouble, because you didn't know who he is or where to find him.
Riddick: How much did you tell Wendy? Are you going to do something about it all? Ruby: She wants me to go through the whole thing. She was talking about the prosecutor and everything, but I can't do it. I'm too tired and scared. I just want to forget. Riddick: I understand. However, there are some things you should consider.
Riddick: If he's not locked up, he may come after you. Ruby: Yes, but what if I try and it fails? Then he will kill me for sure. Riddick: There is a third option, but I'm not sure you want to hear it. Ruby: What is it? Riddick: Not here, someone could hear us. Kermit is out, let's go to his office.
Riddick: The third option is to send someone over to deliver a message. Ruby: What kind of a message? Riddick: Anything you want. He could spend the next 6 months in hospital, if that's what you want. You could call it paying back in kind. Ruby: You talk about it so calmly, like it was a business deal. - I can't do it. Riddick: That's because you're a good person. I'm afraid I'm not, not when it comes to something like this.
