Ashley (skeptically): You were college buddies with my mom?
Druitt: Yes, at first. Things became more serious between us later.
Ashley: Okay, dude, you have to stop referring to my mom as your "ex" or, seriously, I will kill you.
(Druitt chuckles softly and reaches out to take back the locket)
Druitt: We were a part of something, something we called "The Five" - a small group dedicated to expanding our knowledge of the physical world by the most … unconventional means.
Ashley: How can you be old like her?
Druitt: Well, unlike what you've been told, your mother was not born with a genetic abnormality. No, she chose to become something different. We all did. We were so curious to know what humans could become … evolve into … given the chance.
