    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Elizabeth Collins mistakes her lines when speaking to Paul about him leaving.

      • Paul Stoddard speaks of having to put up with Carolyn for the last 2 years. Previously Carolyn's birth had been established as being 6 months after Paul "left", and then later Elizabeth told Carolyn she despised the way Paul ignored his daughter, so that pushed her birth up before this event, but not by any known amount.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Victoria: My name is Victoria Winters. Like a flash of lightning in a sudden summer storm, the truth is about to strike with it's fiery force into the confines of Collinwood, shattering the uneasy calm that proceeds it and sending it's thunders to shake the foundations of the ancient house. And only time will tell whether this frightful glare has come to illuminate, or to destroy.

        Elizabeth Collins Stoddard: I killed Paul Stoddard. And that man pointing to Jason McGuire was my accomplice!

        Roger Collins: Liz did you a favor. If she hadn't stopped the wedding you'd probably be dead now.

        Jason McGuire: But I haven't done anything wrong!
        Elizabeth Collins Stoddard: Wrong? You said you were going to help me, and you buried him, and then came back to blackmail me.

        Elizabeth Collins Stoddard: I looked at the key that I held in my hand and I knew that form then on, I was a prisoner of Collinwood, forever.
