    • Charlotte: Hey Daddy. Declan is so blown away by your offer that we spent the whole day preping for the exams. (Conrad doesn't respond) Oh no. What's wrong?
      Conrad: Um, well Charlotte we need to talk.
      Charlotte: What did she do this time?
      Conrad: Oh no it's just. Um...I'm going to be making some changes over the next few weeks. It's the end of the summer so things are heating up for me at the office and I'm going to be going back and forth to the city more and more.
      Charlotte: So what does that mean?
      Conrad: It's not practical for you to stay with me.
      Charlotte: But I'm supposed to live with you. I thought you were buying another house here?
      Conrad: I know that was the plan. But I think it's best if you go back to your mother's.

    • Nolan: Woah. Charlotte Grayson is your sister?
      Emily: If my father was right. What I don't understand, is why wouldn't he write that in his journals? Why trust Treadwell with that information and no one else?
      Nolan: Maybe he wasn't certain.
      Emily: Which is why I'm going to find out or the Graysons are going to find out for me.
      Nolan: Okay I'll bite. What are you going to do with the tapes?
      Emily : One of them is going to blow up Victoria's divorce and the other ones are going to be found on Amanda.
      Nolan: To frame her for torching Casa Treadwell.
      Emily: She didn't give me much choice.
      Nolan: So the fact that Charlotte might be your sister makes absolutely no difference to you?
      Emily: Half sister. And no it doesn't.
      Nolan: What about Jack?
      Emily: Jack's in love with a killer. I've got to get rid of Amanda.
      Nolan: He thinks he's in love with you. Meanwhile poor puppy dog Daniel actually is. So where pray tell does your heart stand in all this?
      Emily: My feelings are irrelevant. Look I came here for revenge and you offered to help if you can't stomach it anymore how about you at least spare me your passive aggressive judgments.

    • Emily : (closing voiceover)For some commitment is like faith, a chosen devotion to another person or an intangible ideal. But for me commitment has a shadow side a darker drive that consistently asks the question, how far am I willing to go?

    • Emily : (opening voiceover)Some say that our lives are defined by the sum of our choices. But it isn't really our choices that distinguish who we are but our commitment to them.
