Max: Rupert, what I'm going to show you is not something normally shown to people who are not wizards, so keep that in mind.
Rupert: I won't talk about it with anyone.
Max: Tagus...
Tagus: I know, not a word to Cyrill and Fenimore. I'm just glad I finally get to see it. I hope one day I'll be able to go too.
Max: When you're ready. You still have a lot more to learn before that, but at least you get to see now how it works.
Rupert: So, why are we in the basement? I thought you'd need an open space.
Max: This works everywhere, and I want to be sure nobody else can see this.

Max: Everything is ready now. This is the tesseract. Doesn't look much, just an old cube, like our recent guest called it. However, as you know, looks can be deceiving.
Tagus: Where are you going?
Max: Sorry, I can't tell you that. See you in a few days. I hope.

Rupert: She's... gone. Just like that.
Tagus: I've heard about it, but I didn't know it was like that.
Rupert: What do you think she meant with "I hope?"
Tagus: Those places aren't really safe.
Rupert: I hope she'll be all right.
Tagus: This wasn't the first time she used one of those. She knows what she's doing. - Rupert, are you and Max...?
Rupert: It's complicated.
Tagus: I bet it is. At least you haven't run away.
Rupert: What do you mean?
Tagus: You wouldn't believe how many girls run as soon as they hear what I do.
Rupert: Seriously? I would have thought that being a wizard makes you a chick magnet.
Tagus: Wrong sort of chicks. I mean, what do you think Max thinks about guys who are after her just because of Maximilian's money?
Rupert: Good point.

Nikki: Hi grandma! I'm back!
Janine: Just in time for dinner. How's the job?
Nikki: The usual. But I heard there was something unusual going on here while I was away.
Janine: Word travels fast. It was nothing too bad, just an intruder. Max and Tagus took care of that, and a detective came to pick him up.
Nikki: A detective? Is that what he said he was?
Janine: What do you mean? He said he was detective Shelton.
Nikki: Okay, I suppose he was a detective then. - I met him. He came to meet my boss and he told me about what happened when he heard who I am.

Janine: Could you take that off? It makes you look like a robber.
Nikki: Oh, sorry. It was a bit dusty out there. And even dustier where I came from.
Janine: The dinner will be ready soon. Would you go and get the others?
Nikki: Sure. I guess Rupert is in the library, he's always there. What about the others? Is Max at home?
Janice: The other guys are probably in Tagus' laboratory. Max will be away for a few days.
Nikki: Okay, I'm on my way.

Nikki: Rupert! How's the research going?
Rupert: Slowly. These books are so fascinating that I end up reading a lot more than I really need to.
Nikki: I can think of things a lot worse than that.
Rupert: I'm sure you can. And I'm not complaining. Max said I can stay as long as I need to.
Nikki: Having a librarian for free isn't a bad deal.
Rupert: You know she doesn't...
Nikki: It was a joke. - The dinner will be ready in a few minutes. Grandma asked me to tell you.
Rupert: Thank you, I'll be there in a minute. I promise.

Nikki: Hi guys! What are you up to?
Tagus: Nikki, you're back! Where were you this time?
Nikki: Here and there. You know I can't really talk about the details.
Tagus: Sorry. It's just... being stuck here...
Fenimore: Nothing ever happens here. Or if it does, of course I sleep through it all.
Nikki: You're talking about the intruder. I heard about it. A strange story. Whatever would anybody hope to steal from here?
Cyrill: That's what I said. The only really valuable asset here is Max, and I don't think anyone would send just one guy to kidnap her.
Tagus: I'd like to see them try.
Nikki: I wouldn't. - Anyway, the dinner is ready. Grandma sent me to get you.
Fenimore: Great! This place may be boring, but your grandma's the best cook ever.

Rupert: So, did you do anything interesting this time?
Nikki: Hey, I don't destroy stuff all the time! - Although...
Cyrill: What? What did you do? I bet it's a good story.
Nikki: Well, I sort of... accidentally drained a pond.
Rupert: Accidentally?
Tagus: I want to hear this. I bet it has something to do with that new mining drill you got.

Nikki 9

Nikki: That drill is a great tool! I was at the foot of a cliff and had to do some tunneling to go up. I've never made such a fast progress before. I hadn't been there before, so how was I supposed to know there would be a pond? I just drilled upwards and suddenly, there was all this water.
Tagus: And after a while, there was none, I suppose. What do you think the residents near the pond thought about your stunt?
Nikki: It wasn't a stunt! It was an accident!
