Sofia: That's four stiffs associated with you, Lionel. Five, if you count Ernie.
Lionel: I don't.
Sara: You know, you keep saying that you hated your dad, but I'm not buying it.
Sofia: Maybe Ernie didn't know you were a killer. Police start poking around, asking him questions, showing him pictures and he sees these. (motions to the pictures of the miniature crime scenes) He knows exactly what his little boy has become.
Sara: To the rest of the world a monster, but to him just a little boy knocking over his birthday cake.
Sofia: So he confesses to crimes you committed, shoots himself in the head. It's a dead end for us.
Sara: And a new start for you.
