  • Quotes

    • Katja: (talking in the car to Sarah although she thinks she's talking to Beth) Just one. I'm a few, no family, too. Who am I?

    • Sarah: I saw a girl kill herself.
      Felix: Ew! A jumper?
      Sarah: Yeah, and she looked exactly like me, Felix.
      Felix: What do you mean? (Sarah starts laying out Beth's things on the table) Oh, you robbed her body.
      Sarah: No, she left her bag on the platform.
      Felix: Isn't that essentially robbing her body? (Sarah shows Felix Beth's driver's license) Okay, that's weird.
      Sarah: Yeah, you think?
      Felix: Elizabeth Childs. It's you with a nice haircut.
      Sarah: And a nice address. What the hell, Fe? Did I have a twin sister?
      Felix: Well, now, when you're a poor little orphan foster wretch, anything's possible. Or so we tell ourselves.

    • Title
