VINCENT LEARNS WHAT LIFE WOULD HAVE BEEN LIKE WITHOUT CAT – Vincent (Jay Ryan) and Cat (Kristin Kreuk) realize they have to go into hiding now that someone is out to kill Vincent. Vincent wonders if Cat would have been better off without him and gets a glimpse into exactly what her life could have been.



CAT: I told you we should have stayed at a hotel.Cat: Dr. Heidari  said you shouldn’t even be out of bed.

  • Vincent: Yeah, well, Dr. Hedari doesn’t know how dangerous it is for me be to be in bed these days, does he?

Vincent: The hit man is after me, not after you

  • Cat: Try telling that to my pillow. Hey what’s going on?
  • Vincent: You want to know what's going on? I am sick to death of this crap. You know what, I'm sick of ducking beasts and bullets and every other person that is after me, okay? And I'm sick of ruining your life in the process. 
  • Cat: You are not ruining my life. 
  • Vincent: There is a hit man lying in the middle of your living room - again. Just admit it, you would've been better off if you'd never found me. 
  • Cat: Okay, you're feverish. I am calling the doctor.

JT: Sheesh! At least you had a sense of humor when we were together. 

  • TESS: Really? You think you gave me a sense of humor? 
  • JT: Yeah, I do, as a matter of fact. And gummy worms. Got you into gummy worms. 
  • TESS: That-that changed my life. You're right. You're right. 
  • JT: See? Yeah. Just made you laugh.

JT: You hungry? Sorry. Forgot, you already ate.

JT: Beasting out I can handle. Crazy, I can't.

Evan: Who was that guy? He seemed to know you. 

  • Cat: Did he? I don't know. I've never seen him before in my life. What, are you jealous? 
  • Evan: No, I'm upset, all right? I tried to surprise you with a nice anniversary party. 
  • Catherine: Yeah, you surprised me, all right. 
  • Evan: It obviously didn't please you. 
  • Cat: I don't want to talk about this right now, Evan, it's late. 
  • Evan: Well, I do. Look... Cat, just talk to me, okay? Tell me what's wrong. I love you more than anything, and you know that. I would die for you. Just... just tell me what to do. Tell me how to make you happy. 
  • Cat: I don't know. All I know is that this isn't about you. You are a good man, Evan. You have only ever been good to me. But... 
  • Evan: But what? 
  • Cat: I keep trying to find ways to make this work... for us. But no matter how hard I try, I... (chuckles) I can't get past... 
  • Evan: What, that night? Damn it, Cat, still? 
  • Cat: I can't forget it just because you want me to. My mother was murdered that night, and I was supposed to be killed, too. 
  • Evan: Yeah, but some fairy tale creature saved you. Look, it was ten years ago, Cat, okay? It's time to get over it. A terrible thing happened, beyond awful, but... this fantasy version that you have made up is just destroying us. Can't you see that? 
  • Cat: Nobody believes me. Nobody ever has.

JT: Might as well hang a sign that says: Dear Muirfield, here I am!

TESS: So, Joe stood me up last night again. Really sucks when you're involved with your married boss, you know? 

  • CAT: Tess, I keep telling you, there is somebody out there who is better for you. 
  • TESS: Really? Like who? Isn't that the guy who crashed your party? Yeah, and his friend.

VINCENT: Look, Reynolds, I'm not gonna hurt Catherine, okay? I love her very much, and she loves me. 

  • REYNOLDS: Well, that's impossible. You're one of them. 
  • VINCENT: Well, at least you're consistent. You hate the idea of us being together in both worlds.
