Toffee: She's your friend? Why can't you have normal friends? Your own kind? Kitty: Ruby is normal. She's very nice. I think you scared her away. Toffee: Nice people are always like that, getting scared for nothing. That Riddick, he's different, more like us. But then again, Chase wouldn't have been interested otherwise. Kitty: Forget Chase. He's with me now.
Toffee: Kitty, I came here, because I wanted to ask you something. Kitty: What is it? You sound serious. Toffee: I am. Chase is going to be away for a very long time. I know she's been the biggest problem between us. Could we try to start all over? Just forget the past and try again? Kitty: Bit late for that. You've always been on her side. That's going to be hard to forget. Are you saying you're lonely? Just go and find yourself a new guy, that's what you've always done.
Ruby: ...and I figured it was best just to do what he said. Anyway, I didn't mind the other thing that much, because then he always left me alone for a long time. Guilt, I guess. It was the beating that was worse. And he never felt any guilt for that. Riddick: What other thing? Ruby: Well... you know... at least you should... I mean, after all, you are a man...
Riddick: I'm going to kill that bastard. Ruby: No! You promised! You PROMISED! Riddick: Hey, calm down! You'll only hurt yourself. Calm down, I won't do anything. I promise.
Kitty: What happened? What's the matter with Ruby? I heard her screaming and saw her running out of here. What did you do? Riddick: You know, I swore I would never kill anyone again. I'm not sure I can keep that promise. - Don't ask. I can't tell. I mean it. Kitty: Honey... are you crying? Riddick: What...? No... no, I'm fine...
Riddick: I can't do this. Would you call Faith? She knows how to handle it, I don't. Kitty: I'll call her. I can see you need to talk to her, even if Ruby doesn't. Riddick: She does. She may not understand it herself, but she really does.
Riddick: ...so I made a mistake. I got so angry. I never thought I would say this, but I fear this situation may be too much for me. Faith: There's nothing to be ashamed of. It's not easy to deal with these things. In fact, I found it surprising that you wanted to try in the first place. - I'll talk with Ruby.
Faith: Wendy. Wendy: Faith. I didn't know you're back. Faith: Well, you finally managed to get Frank behind the bars, even though it wasn't for the right reasons. Wendy: You're still blaming me for that, aren't you? There just wasn't enough evidence... Faith: Save the excuses, I've heard them too many times.
Riddick: What was that? Do you know her? Faith: Ancient history. I had a problem with my husband and she's the one I went to, but she screwed up the investigation. No evidence, no witnesses, my word against his and so on. I hope she isn't handling Ruby's case. There is a case, right? Riddick: Actually, no. Ruby didn't want that. Faith: Maybe better that way. Easier to just pick up the pieces than to suffer months of frustration with those people.
Riddick: I'm sorry I acted that way. I know I promised and I'm not going to break the promise, no matter how I feel about it. Ruby: Faith and I talked about it and she said I can call her when I need to talk. That doesn't mean we can't talk, but maybe we should avoid certain things. Riddick: I was hoping that you wouldn't feel the need to be selective about the truth. I promise I will behave, no matter what you tell me. Although, I suppose I know the worst already.
Riddick: Tell me something. You wondered once how I could be so calm about violence. What I'm wondering is how you can be so calm about... "the other thing." I would have thought... Ruby: That it would be worse than being beaten? It was the price for some peace and quiet. It was either that or much more frequent beatings. Riddick: Do you realize how wrong all that is? Ruby: Of course, but at least I'm still alive.
Riddick: Max, remember when I said you shouldn't push it, if you want Ruby to remain your friend? Orlock: Yes. What about it? Riddick: Just making sure you remember. Orlock: Why don't you just tell me what's wrong?
Riddick: I told you she has problems. They turned out to be much more serious than I thought. Orlock: But it's none of my business? Riddick: Don't ask her about it. She'll tell you what and when she wants you to know. The rest is, as you so accurately put it, none of your business.
Riddick: I promised Ruby I wouldn't do anything. I'm not quite sure if telling you counts as doing something, but I can't just let it be. I got the impression you're the sort of man who can make things happen. I don't want to know anything about it, because I don't want to lie to Ruby any more than I have to, but I trust you will do what you consider appropriate. Without getting yourself into trouble. Hagrid: Don't worry. Leave it to me. She should have told me about all that. I would have taken her away, by any means necessary.
Some time later: Ruby: Did you see the news? An armored car was robbed. Riddick: I saw it, but I didn't pay much attention. Happens all the time. Ruby: One of the guards was shot. He died. - It was my dad. Riddick: Oh. - I hope you're not expecting me to say I'm sorry. I mean, I'm sorry if it makes you feel bad, but I'm not sorry for him.
Ruby: I guess I'm expecting you to say that you had nothing to do with it. Riddick: Robbing an armored car? That has never been my style. Ruby: So it was just a random thing? Riddick: Like I said, happens all the time. I don't know how many security guards get killed each year, but probably several. Not everyone has as safe a workplace as I do.
Riddick: How do you feel? Ruby: I don't know. Relieved. Sad. Angry. Safe. Yes, most of all I feel safe.
Ruby: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to make you feel uncomfortable. Riddick: It's all right. I was just surprised. Ruby: You know, Kermit said there's an empty room upstairs and he asked if I wanted to move in. It is nicer than the place I'm staying in now. Would you help me get some of my things from home? I can do that now. Riddick: Of course. Just tell me when you want to go. I'm sure Kermit will lend us the van.
Ruby: It's so nice to have my things here. It feels like home. Thanks for helping me with decoration and everything. Kitty: It was fun. I'm so happy you'll be staying here. We can have all sorts of fun when others are gone. Riddick: Somehow I was afraid of that.
Kitty: You didn't bring much. Why? I mean, you could have taken anything you wanted, it's all yours now. Ruby: I didn't want anything that was his. I just wanted what's mine. Uncle Hagrid will take care of the rest. He will sell everything and then I'll get the money. That's all right, I think, because money is money, without bad memories. Although, no amount of money will ever compensate for it all.
Kitty: What's the matter with you? Aren't you happy she's here? Riddick: Those teddy bears... I was looking at them and it was so hard to believe... You once said she doesn't have a past. You have no idea how much I hope that was true. Kitty: I don't quite follow. Does this have something to do with you wanting me to call Faith? Riddick: Never mind. Like you said, she's here now. Everything will be fine.
