Reese: Wow. That was a kick, wasn't it?

Jack: Yeah, whatever.

Reese: "Whatever"? That's not what you said when you had me pinned up against the wall.

Jack: I asked you for something.

Reese: Oh, yeah -- "bite me." Lovely. You're so romantic.

Jack: I know vampires. I used to be one, remember? They have two things on their mind -- sex and feeding. I'm offered, do you have a problem with that? 3E6FBC21.JPG

Reese: Yeah. I don't do mercy bites.

Elizabeth: Hello? Last I checked, this was my room.

Joshua: Oh, don't start with me! I'm not in the mood.

Elizabeth: Ok. Somebody got up on the wrong side of the coffin.

Joshua: Ugh! Son of a bitch! Do you have any idea what he's done?

Elizabeth: I assume you're speaking of Caleb?

Joshua: Yeah, he changed the name of the band. It's now called the experience featuring Caleb Morley. And the Muthe music is pathetic!

Elizabeth: And what brought that on?

Joshua: Not what but who -- a little who. That little tidbit he's been seeing. 3E6FBC4B.JPG

Elizabeth: Tess?

Joshua: Love kills. Don't you ever forget it.

Elizabeth: Being with you, how could I?

Joshua: Oh, and by the way, he knows about us.

Elizabeth: Well, was he --

Joshua: What, was he angry or was he jealous? Oh, don't get your hopes up. No. He asked me not to mistreat you.

Elizabeth: That w generous of him.

[Music plays]

Joshua: Oh, please don't. I am not in the mood.

Elizabeth: I am, and you will be.

Alison: Um, mother? It's Alison. I, uh -- I brought you some dinner. She's probably exhausted. She probably fell asleep. 3E6FBC94.JPG

[Alison gasps]

[Glass breaks]

Elizabeth: Tuna casserole. My favorite.

Caleb: Why'd you do all this?

Tess: To make you happy.

Caleb: You don't have to do anything to achieve that.

Tess: Don't you like it?

Caleb: Yeah, I do. You have to forgive me. It's -- it's been a long time since anyone did anything for me -- anything special f m me for reason.

Tess: But there is a reason, because you are always trying to make sure I could have everything a girl could want. Why can't it be you who's swept off your feet?

Caleb: I'm swept.

Tess: Don't thank me yet, because it's just the beginning. 3E6FBCD0.JPG

Jack: Hey, hey, hey, hey. Come on, come on, slow down, all right?

Reese: Hey, why are you following me?

Jack: Look, I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings.

Reese: You didn't even come close. Look, it's all right. I know you're on the rebound because of your ex. I know she's kicking it with Stephen.

Jack: Caleb? No, that's not exactly --

Reese: Yeah, it is. And it's all right. I'm not looking for you to send me valentines. I thought we were just in it for laughs, you know?

Jack: We are, you know? Besides, I want to join the big dance, the big party. 3E6FBD0E.JPG

Reese: No, I just don't turn anyone. I need a reason.

Jack: Well, I offered. That should be a good enough reason. Besides, we're in this for the kicks, remember?

Reese: Not good enough.

Jack: What are you, a vampire with a conscience? I've been bitten before. I know what's up, Reese.

Reese: Are you ready for life without end? Are you ready to drink blood, to feed off other people to just satisfy your own hunger, to be at the top of the food chain? Everybody wants the power, but nobody wants to pay the price. You obviously didn't before. What makes you different now?

Alison: Look, I'm just going to clean this up, ok, and then I'm going to get out of here. 3E6FBD33.JPG

Elizabeth: Hey, Alison, that was so sweet of you --

Alison: No, please, give me a break. I don't want you to mess up your leather pants.

Elizabeth: Come on, Alison, listen to me, it's not what it looked like.

Alison: It is what it looks like. It's exactly what it looks like. You're going to let that nasty pervert feed on you.

Joshua: Hello, Alison. Long time no see.

Elizabeth: Honey, I don't want you to overreact.

Alison: "Overreact"? Are you kidding me? Are you being serious? This is the same man who tried to kill me. Do you get that?

Joshua: I don't mean to be defensive, but you didn't really give me much choice. 3E6FBD4E.JPG

Alison: This is -- this is the same man who probably killed daddy. And up until about a month ago, you thought that y k killed him -- which, by the way, was ok with you. And now you're just going to let him feed on you? What -- what is the matter with you?

Joshua: Excuse me, young lady, your mother and I happen to have a very complex, mature relationship. What we choose to do behind closed doors is nobody's business but our own.

Alison: Joshua, don't speak to me. You're a nasty little pig, and if you touch my mother ever again, I'm going to make sure that Rafe gets rid of you forever.

Elizabeth: No, you won't. 3E6FBD70.JPG

Tess: See the candles and the wine?

Caleb: Yeah. It's a nice Bordeaux. Something smells amazing.

Tess: That's coq au vin. It's chicken.

Caleb: With wine. Yeah, it's one of my favorites.

Tess: Really? I was a little worried because I know it's not food that really nourishes you, but they say it's a very satisfying meal.

Caleb: "They"?

Tess: Mm-hmm.

The magazine I got. "How to make a man happy." That's what I wanted to do. I wanted to make you happy.

Caleb: You do. But you don't need to go to all this trouble.

Tess: Well, that's what people do who care about each other, isn't it? 3E6FBDA9.JPG

Caleb: I guess it is.

Tess: I really don't know much about the world, but I am trying to learn. Why are you staring at me?

Caleb: You're amazing, you know that? But, you know you don't need a -- you don't need a magazine or a book to tell you what happiness is. All they do is try to paint a picture-perfect world where everything has its place. But it's just paper and ink. But you -- in your heart, in your soul, you hold all that is pure and honest and real. You know, that's how we're all born. It's what -- it's what's been missing in me for a long time. It's what's missing in all of them out there. But somehow you found this way to hang on to it. 3E6FBDFA.JPG

Tess: Here. Try this. It's oysters Rockefeller.

Tess: Hmm?

Caleb: Best oyster I ever had.

Tess: Well, there's more. Hold on.

Tess: Why do you look so sad?

Caleb: I want you to be able to see the world, Tess. I want you to see the world and everything it has to offer. And I'd like to be there to share it with you. But there's something that you need to know. I have a long history of tarnishing everything that I touch, Tess.

Tess: But I am not afraid. I don't want to live my life preserved behind glass, unreal. I won't break, Caleb.

Tess: Uh, what about the chicken? 3E6FBE5B.JPG

Caleb: That's why they invented the microwave.

Elizabeth: Rafe will not hurt Joshua. Is that clear?

Alison: You're taking his side over mine?

Elizabeth: No, Alison, it's not -- it's not that I don't appreciate what you're doing. It's just that Joshua and I have just developed a particular understanding.

Alison: My god, you're going to make me gag

Elizabeth: I know it's difficult to accept, but he and I have a lot in common, and that's all that I'm going to say about it, except that you are not going to sic Rafe on him.

Alison: I thought that you had sunk the lowest when you fell in love with Caleb. But now this absolutely takes the cake. 3E6FBF07.JPG

Joshua: Hey, hello? Hello? I'm still in the room.

Alison: Good! There's the door! You really like rolling around in the gutter, don't you, mother?

Elizabeth: Stop it! Disappointed you --

Alison: Disappointed me? Please, you're a vampire. It's a far cry from forgetting my birthday.

Elizabeth: I didn't ask to be turned.

Alison: You don't have to give in to every instinct you have!

Elizabeth: You don't understand, Alison!

Alison: Yes, I do! I know people who have been bitten. And they fight it every day with every fiber of their being.

Joshua: Don't knock it, dear, not until you've tried it. 3E6FBF26.JPG

Alison: Please, just make him leave. Please?

Elizabeth: He'll leave when I say so. Alison, you have no idea what I'm going through, how hard this is.

Alison: I know. I know this is really hard for you. And I keep telling myself over and over that you did not choose this, this chose you. Mother, this is who you are. You have no morals. You have no decency and you have no scruples. You are a professional victim.

Elizabeth: What a horrible thing to say.

Alison: I guess the truth hurts, doesn't it, Elizabeth?

Joshua: That's enough now, Alison, please.

Alison: Why don't you go suck eggs. You make my stomach sick. 3E6FBF49.JPG

Elizabeth: You called me Elizabeth.

Alison: Yes, I did, because my mother is dead.


Tess: See, this is how it should be always -- people just doing things for each other because they want to.

Caleb: I've never been with somebody that gave back more than they took.

Tess: Well, that's the difference between all the other women you thought you loved and me. This is simply love.

Caleb: So I'm learning. I'm learning.

Tess: No, no. Let me.

Caleb: Bring me to life. Bring me back to life. With a newborn heart.

Tess: I really love it when you play for me. 3E6FBFAF.JPG

Caleb: I'd rather play with you. What's with the picnic?

Tess: Is it ok?

Caleb: Yeah. Yeah. Here. Ah! Ah!

Tess: I'm sorry. Sorry.

Caleb: It's ok. It's ok. Mmm.

Tess: Wait, here, let me.

Tess: That should do it.

Caleb: Don't worry about .

Tess: No.

Caleb: It'll be fine.

Tess: I couldn't heal it.

Jack: What's different? I'm different. See, you didn't know me before I got here. I used to be nothing but trouble. All I cared about was making sure nobody was in my business. But I knew how to party, though. 3E6FBFE8.JPG

Reese: So what went wrong?

Jack: Made friends, fell in love.

Reese: Ooh, I've never been in love. Never wanted to. I mean, there's no percentage in it.

Jack: Yeah, well, I'm starting to agree with you. So tell me about you, about before you crossed over.

Reese: Really?

Jack: Why not?

Reese: Well, it's nothing special. Your average blue-collar English girl. Mom spent most nights crying in her whiskey. Dad, one of her many one-night stands.

Jack: Yeah. Well, my dad was an S.O.B., Too.

Reese: Well, I wouldn't know about mine. Never met him. Never wanted to. 3E6FC00E.JPG

Jack: So, how'd you meet Caleb?

Reese: I was playing in a club in Bristol.

Jack: So you must be pretty good, huh?

Reese: Good? I'm smashing. Good enough to get his attention, anyway. He showed me I could have the world if I wanted it.

Jack: You still feel that way?

Reese: Why not? I get to do what I love and have powers most people can't even imagine.

Jack: And you never miss hearing your mom crying in her whiskey?

Reese: Doesn't really matter, does it? I like who I am. You like being mortal. Let's just leave it at that. 3E6FC034.JPG

Jack: Sounds good.

Reese: Oh!

Reese: I'll tear your stupid head off!

Jack: Hey, hey, hey, just take it easy, both of you!

Alison: I'm so scared! Let me see what you got.

Jack: No, we're not going to see what anybody's got! What the hell do you think you're doing?

Alison: What are you doing? What are you hanging out with this trash for?

Reese: Where do you get off --

Jack: No, Reese -- hey! Hey. I'll see who I want, when I want.

Alison: Are you drunk?

Jack: No, not anymore.

Alison: Ok, so then you're just an idiot.

Reese: And you're deaf.

Alison: Ok, you no longer exist. Tess makes the biggest mistake of her life, and you go and compound it by throwing your whole life away? You're so smart. I'm impressed. 3E6FC104.JPG

Jack: Not your problem, Alison.

Alison: You think that you can fix her and make her normal or whatever you want? Then you have just as much of a chance as you did with Tess.

Jack: Don't go there!

Alison: She's a cockroach! They're all cockroaches! You try and destroy her and all she's going to do is get stronger. They live in filth. So what do you want to do? You want to go roll around in garbage? You want to stink it up? Go ahead, but don't come looking for me when you can't find the exit! Dye your roots.

Jack: Easy, easy. Leave her alone. Let her -- 3E6FC123.JPG

Reese: Who -- who is that little priss? What is she to you? Does she own you?

Jack: No. Just old friends. Just an old friend. Come on, I'll buy you a cup of coffee.

Reese: No, thanks. I don't touch the stuff. Besides, I'm not into dating. I told you.

Jack: All right. Suit yourself.

Reese: I never forget a sucker punch, Alison, and neither will you.

Elizabeth: I need to go after R.

Joshua: , , Don't. What, so she can throw more insults in your face? Oh, children -- ungrateful, squeaky little wretches. The best thing I ever did was not have any. 3E6FC14B.JPG

Elizabeth: You don't understand.

Joshua: I do understand. I understand how she feels for you, loud and clear.

Elizabeth: She's all that I have!

Joshua: No, she's not.

I am all that you have. You lost her the minute she saw you and I together. Caleb was the first to desert you. Now your daughter is the next rat to abandon the ship. Now, the sooner you face the truth, the better off we'll be.

Elizabeth: But she's my little girl.

Joshua: Oh, please. Do you know how I tired I am of doing this little waltz with you? What, two steps forward, three steps back? No wonder we don't get anywhere! 3E6FC169.JPG

Elizabeth: I don't know what you want from me.

Joshua: It's what you want that counts. Don't you want to bring Caleb down?

Elizabeth: Yes, I do. This is all his fault.

Joshua: Then why don't you stay focused on that. Forget all these distractions. Focus on his destruction. Focus on the hatred and the revenge and think about how brilliant it will be when Caleb comes crashing down.

Caleb: Look, you can try again, if you want.

Tess: No. No, it's no E. It's gone. I can't heal anymore.

Caleb: You don't know that.

Tess: 'S gone. You gave me a gift, and now it's all gone. 3E6FC195.JPG

Caleb: You know where it went, don't you?

Tess: Yeah. I was given a gift for a purpose, and -- and once the purpose was fulfilled, I didn't need it anymore. I saved your life. That's -- that's why I'm here, that's why you created me, and I'm sure of that now. When I healed your heart, it was for more than to just bring you back to this world. It was to show you where your own goodness was.

Caleb: And you did that.

Tess: I don't need it anymore. We don't need it. Because we've found each other and discovered our purpose together. Because we're soul mates. 3E6FC1E1.JPG

Tess: Jack sent you here?

Lucy: I just know that he would love to see you.

Alison: At least just to see you and be able to say goodbye.

Elizabeth: Ian and Rafe just broke into Caleb's loft.

Caleb: Something hasn't been right with you for a while, Marissa, and I want to know why.
