Nurse: Come on Sandra...PUSH!
Sandra: (screams) Come on!
(baby cries)



Sandra: (sighs) Thank god for that...
Nurse: Here he is...your baby boy.



Sandra: Here he is Jacob...our little boy.
Jacob: He’s beautiful, I’m so sorry Sandra.
Sandra: Me too...I’m sorry too...



Stella: Me and Malcolm are now an item.
Morty: Wow, well...congratulations.



Malcolm: I’ve thought about you too...I really have.
Sandra: Well now it’s been dashed because you’re sleeping with my Mother; just get away from me.



Morty: (sighs) It was Betty...my brother and his wife...they’re dead.
Cleo: Oh my gosh...
Morty: Yeah...they died in a car accident...
Jacob: I’m sorry Morty...
Morty: What’s more, their daughter Jessica has nowhere to live...
Cleo: So...



Morty: So...she’s coming to live with us..



Stella: So the mouse has turned into a rat...wouldn’t it destroy Morty if the rat was to drown in the river?


Episode 14 – House, Candle, Fire!



Sandra:
Come on little guy, you’re all cleaned up now.
Jacob: (yawns) This is what it’s going to be like from now on?
Sandra: Something like this yeah...



Jacob: It’s quite amazing actually...
Sandra: Yeah, I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Jacob: So why do you look so unsettled?
Sandra: (sighs) I don’t know...I think it could be because of Jessica moving in with us...
Jacob: Why, is she trouble?
Sandra: No...well...last time I saw her, when we were both 11, she was really sweet. But it’s going to be awkward having someone here who knows nothing about the family...
Jacob: That’s why we’re going to make her feel welcome, right?
Sandra: Yeah...



Jacob: If she’s as sweet as you say...then we’ve got nothing to worry about, right?
Sandra: Yeah...right...







Jessica: Don’t bother with the cleaning.
Dan: It could use a little washing...
Jessica: I said don’t bother, now how much do I owe you?
Dan: For you, 18 dollars.
Jessica: Fine...



Dan: Wait...Jailbreak!
Jessica: Nice name...
Dan: No, I saw you in a magazine last week. One of those nude pages...you were being stripped down by the officers...
Jessica: (sighs) How about that...
Dan: So it was you?
Jessica: Maybe, look just hurry up with my change; I want to get to Riverblossom Hills.
Dan: What’s waiting for you there that you couldn’t find here?
Jessica: Well...I suppose I could spare 20 minutes...

Next Day:





Stella: So what are your plans for today?
Malcolm: Heading back to my house so I can make sure everything is okay...
Stella: And...
Malcolm: And...to discuss with the board at Landgraab Enterprise that we’re going to be joining forces with the Chesterton Company.
Stella: That’s more like it, something tells me that Roth & Co had better watch out because once we go public with this, they’ll be in the palm of our hands.



Cleo: He’s so precious Sandra...
Sandra: I know, I can’t believe how lucky I am...
Cleo: So are you and Jacob okay now?
Sandra: I think so; it’s going good so far anyway. How about you, did you find out who spoke to your friend?
Cleo: (sighs) No, I’m back to square one really. I was thinking Stella but after her announcement with Malcolm last night I just thought maybe she had other things to think about?
Sandra: Don’t under estimate my mother, she’s very calculating. Well, I hope you find out who it is soon...



Stella: Morgan, what can I do for you?
Morgan: It’s more what I can do for you...
Stella: Well come in and sit down then.



Stella: What’s going on?
Morgan: I did some more research into Cleo’s past for you...
Stella: There’s...more?
Morgan: Yes, I looked into the trial and found something that may be quite interesting to you.
Stella: Then what is it?
Morgan: It turns out that Cleo tried to murder Leod McGreggor whilst they were on holiday. At the trial, she claimed that he had abused her and that’s why she lashed out at him...
Stella: So trying to hit your husband over the head with a bat is just giving him a message?
Morgan: According to her, yes. The one thing I thought of when I told you this was that Cleo herself would easily talk Morty round, she is the love of his life after all...



Stella: Yes, yes get on with it.
Morgan: Well if you were being abused by a man and went to prison for potentially trying to kill him, would you go out with your current husband wearing a locket that the abusive husband bought you?
Stella: What locket?
Morgan: Cleo and Morty went to a Restaurant opening together and in the picture she’s wearing the same locket that Leod bought her...Leod as in...the guy who abused her for years and years. I’m sure Morty would love to hear that the woman he loves was wearing a locket purchased by her “abusive”, rich ex-husband.
Stella: You’re good Morgan...I need to find that locket.



Morgan: It’s obviously going to be amongst her jewellery, if only you could get into Roth Manor to search?
Stella: I may have a way...



Morty: Thanks a lot Rosenberg, this place looks great.



Cleo: Morty, where should I put these presents.
Morty: Oh put them on the table...



Cleo: You know anyone would think you were going a bit over the top?
Morty: Well I want to make it special for her, she always did get pushed from one pillar to another with my brother....
Cleo: Well at least she’ll feel welcome here right?
Morty: That’s right...



Sandra: That’s you all dressed up isn’t it little prince...



Jacob: He looks beautiful.
Sandra: He does, he gets it from his Mother.
Jacob: No...surely it’s his stud of a dad?



Sandra: I’m sorry about last night, I’m worrying about things too much, it doesn’t matter who lives with us as long as we have each other and little Jamie then we’re fine.
Jacob: Exactly, we’re back together now and nothing will change that.
Sandra: Exactly...nothing at all...



Morty: Stella I don’t remember inviting you...
Stella: I’m here to support Jessica, me and your brother were close friends Morty...
Morty: No you weren’t, you both got drunk one night and that was it.
Stella: Oh that’s right, mock the death of your brother, you’re not the only one who’s sad at this news Morty and that young girl will need all the support she can get. Won’t it be nice to have a familiar face around?
Cleo: Oh leave it Morty, you can stay Stella...but any trouble and you’re gone.
Stella: Thank you Cleo...



Stella: Oh look at him...
Sandra: Mother, I didn’t know you were invited...



Stella: Well I did know your Uncle too and I also knew Jessica...
Sandra: Not that you care though?
Stella: Of course I care, I have feelings too you know.
Sandra: Yes, there must be a genuine bone in that body...even if the rest are all corrupt.
Stella: (laughs) You really are my daughter Sandra...



Barman: I’ve told you already, stay out and I want the money for that beer.
Jessica: Yeah, well you can whistle for it asshole.





Jessica: (sighs) Come on then...into the live of the rich and famous.





Morty: I think she may be running a bit late.
Cleo: She’ll be here i’m sure.



Jessica: Are you talking about me?
Morty: Jessica...you’re here...
Jessica: Oh...Uncle Morty...I’m okay you know...because my parents loved me...



Morty: Have you been drinking?
Stella: Oh please, she smells like a brewery.
Jessica: I need something to block the pain...because who else have I got left?



Morty:
Come on Jessica...
Jessica: (sobs) I don’t have anyone...



Sandra:
Me and Jacob are taking Jamie to the park, Xander’s coming too. We’ll be back later...
Cleo: Yeah sure...



Stella: Well it’s been fun...but I’m heading off too, make sure that girl knows I was here.
Cleo: Just go Stella.





Cleo: How is she?
Morty: Not good, she keeps telling me about her car and she wants me get it with her.
Cleo: At this time?
Morty: Yes I’m afraid, i’ll be back later, you alright?
Cleo: Yeah sure...she was in a real state though wasn’t she?
Morty: I guess some people take it worse than others. I’ll be back after anyway...



Stella: (whispers) Now...if I were an ex-attempted murderee where would I hide a locket?



(Phone Rings)



Cleo:
Hello.
Patricia: Hello Cleo, its Patricia.
Cleo: Hey Patricia, what’s going on?
Patricia: I found out who was here asking about you.
Cleo: (gasps) Really, who was it?
Patricia: It was a man called Morgan Grimes...
Cleo: Morgan Grimes...that sounds familiar...
Patricia: It will, Morty’s ex-wife Stella hired him years ago to spy on Morty...
Cleo: (gasps) Stella?
Patricia: Yes...Stella...



Morty: I know you probably don’t want to talk about it, but do you know what happened to your parents Jessica?
Jessica: Yes...
Morty: I take it you were close to them?
Jessica: I never really was, they were always so wrapped up in work...
Morty: They did love you though, you know that right?
Jessica: No...they never loved me or my brother...
Morty: How is Craig anyway?
Jessica: I wouldn’t know...



Morty: Why not?
Jessica: Another sign of my parents “love” for their kids, they kicked him out when he was 15.
Morty: 15?! Why on earth would they do that?
Jessica: Because they didn’t want him embarrassing the family...
Morty: How would he do that?
Jessica: He told them he was gay.
Morty: So they kicked him out?
Jessica: Yes, we’ve not seen him since...





Cleo: (gasps) Stella!
Stella: Cleo...it...



Cleo: Save it Stella, I know...I know that you’ve been spying on me...
Stella: Spying on you? (laughs) Don’t make me laugh...
Cleo: Morgan Grimes is your private spy is he not?
Stella: Oh alright, yes he is.
Cleo: How dare you Stella...
Stella: Why are you so upset, scared I may have found something out I shouldn’t have?



Cleo:
Oh go on...what do you know?
Stella: Everything...about you and you’re dear old husband...
Cleo: I’d hardly call Leod “dear”....
Stella: Well it’s better than calling him “dead”, which is what he would’ve been if he hadn’t have thought back against you.
Cleo: Oh I see, you believe what the courts said...that I tried to kill him?
Stella: At first I had my doubts, but now I know exactly what you are, a liar, a cheat...
Cleo: That’s rich coming from you...
Stella: Oh no...I may be bad, but I’d never try and take another’s life...never.





Cleo: I never took his life, I lashed out because of all the pain he’d put me through...
Stella: Oh yes...the “abuse”...
Cleo: Yes...the abuse...
Stella: He made your life hell right? Made you wish you weren’t born?
Cleo: Yes he did...
Stella: So why do you still wear the locket he bought you?
Cleo: What locket?



Stella: The one around my neck.
Cleo: Stella...



Stella: I knew you’re little miss perfect act wasn’t going to stick...let me ask...does Morty know about this?
Cleo: You tell him and i’ll claw your eyes out...
Stella: This time last week I wouldn’t have believed you could...but now...I know exactly what you’re capable of...
Cleo: No, you know nothing, you think you do, but you don’t. I’ve never raised a finger to anyone in my life but i’m surrounded by people that constantly provoke a reaction out of me...like you.
Stella: Don’t, i’ll start crying.
Cleo: Give me that locket.
Stella: Make me...















Cleo: You’ll never get Morty back Stella...never...
Stella: We’ll see about that when I tell him about your stint in jail...
Cleo: As if he’d take back the woman that destroyed his family...
Stella: At least i’m not a murderer...



Cleo: (screams) Fire!
Stella: Oh who are you trying to kid!
Cleo: Look!



Stella: The house is on fire...
Cleo: We can’t get out this way, let’s try the bathroom...



Cleo: (screams)
Stella: Shut the door!



Stella: This is all your fault, every time you come into my life something terrible happens.







Cleo: Look, let’s try and put it out; wait, let me check the windows...





Cleo: These windows are sealed shut...





Stella: (screams)
Cleo: (screams) Stella!



Cleo: Stella?! Stella get up!



Cleo: Stella...wake up! God damn you...



Cleo: (screams) Someone help us...













Cleo: (screams) Oh my god!
