    • Lucas: You told me this was handled.
      Selena: Well I'm sorry Lucas, but I just couldn't hurt him.
      Lucas: So you kept him as a pet?
      Selena: I liked him, okay? To tell you the truth he kind of liked me.
      Lucas: This is a real problem, Selena.
      Selena: Well look, if the doctor finds him before we do, maybe it's not such a bad thing. Raphael hasn't been eating lately and I've been kinda worried about him.
      Lucas: Raphael is a reporter and he's gonna report things.
      Selena: He won't say a word.
      Lucas: Oh really? What you do, bite of his tongue in a fit of passion?

    • Merlyn: Why are you still running?
      Caleb: Daddy's dead Merli. I've seen his grave, yours too. Everybody's dead.
      Merlyn: Not everybody...
      (indicates towards the room with the bound prisoner)
      Caleb: I ain't going in there!
      Merlyn: That man needs your help.
      Caleb: He's a monster!
      Merlyn: No. Can't you understand his pain, Caleb? He's just hurt. I would think you could understand that Caleb.

    • Merlyn: Caleb, it's nice to see you again.
      Caleb: For me too, Merli. The Sheriff is after me, he thinks he's my Daddy.
      Merlyn: Well what do you think?
      Caleb: I think he's crazy! This whole thing is crazy.
      Merlyn: He wants to raise you in his image, Caleb. You can't run forever.
