Lady Heather: Does all this fascinate you?
Grissom: Yes. I find all deviant behavior fascinating in that to understand our human nature we have to understand our aberrations.
Lady Heather: And you think what goes on here is aberrant?
Grissom: I would say that whip marks and ligature contusions on a young woman are aberrant. Wouldn't you?
Lady Heather: Every job has it's peculiar hazards. Rock stars damage their ear drums. Football players ruin their knees. In this business, it's scars. But no one who works for me has ever sustained a serious injury.
Grissom: Mona did. She died.
Lady Heather: Not because she worked here that's your assumption. What happens here isn't about violence. It's about challenging preconceived notions of victorian normalcy. Bringing people's fantasies to life. Making them real and acceptable.
Grissom: Like the theatre.
Lady Heather: It's people who don't come to places like this that I worry about. The ones who don't have an outlet. Say...someone like yourself.
Grissom: Oh, I have outlets. I read. I study bugs. I sometimes even ride roller coasters.
Lady Heather: And your sex life?
Grissom: It doesn't involve going to the theatre.
Lady Heather (smiles): In my experience, Mr. Grissom, some men go to the theater...some men are the theater. Either way, what I offer is a chance for submission or control, whichever's required. Sometimes a client doesn't know what he wants until I show him.
