FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the epilogue to this episode, Catherine, Connie and Connie's sister stand on top of a dam into which Connie throws the lock Catherine gives her. It should be noted the image of the dam (particularly the aerial view of the roaring water) will be used in a subsequent episode, "Force Majeure", in the prologue of that episode, when the woman throws herself into it.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Catherine: Connie, you're not a victim, you're a survivor.

    • Catherine: We all have secrets, Mrs. Bangs.
      Mrs. Bangs: Maybe that's what they're best kept as.

    • Catherine: Tell me honestly, Frank. Am I going too far?
      Frank: We live in a world where too many people won't go far enough, won't do what they know is right, what they believe. I don't know how or why it got this way but the world has become so complicated that to involve yourself in someone else's problems is to invite them needlessly on yourself.

    • Catherine: Just because it's hard to imagine or hard to accept, people don't want to deal with this because it's easier to believe that it couldn't really happen.

    • Bangs: Yeah, well, you just go right on believing it -- whatever it is -- but when lies pass for the truth, then the whole world will have gone crazy and there won't be a damn thing that matters. Lady, there are things you just don't know.

    • Connie: Gotta stay on the line. Gotta stay on the line. Gotta... stay on the line.

      often told in silence."
      ----Robert Louis Stevenson
