Maria-"I can't believe this is happening. I can't believe it's possible."
Liz-"Tess mindwarped Alex."
Liz-"And Kyle. Look, we've gotta go."
Kyle-"I carried his body. She made me think it was luggage. She killed him. Tess killed Alex."
Liz-"Max, stop! It was Tess. Tess killed Alex. She mindwarped Alex and sent him to Las Cruses to decode the book. When he broke out of the mindwarp, she killed him."
Kyle-"It's true. I was there. I witnessed it."
Max-"Why didn't you ever say anything?"
Kyle-"Because she mindwarped me. [He turns on Tess] "You lived in my home. You were like my sister."
Max-"Everyone out !"
Max-"Did you kill Alex?"
Tess-"I didn't want to. I wish I hadn't but I did."
Tess-"Look, Max. The clock's ticking. We don't really have time for................."
Max-"Tell me why?"
Tess-"He would have told you what I did and I couldn't let that happen."
Max-"So you.....you just killed him?"
Tess-"I didn't mean to. His brain was just so weakened by the mindwarp and-look, none of this matters now."
Max-"Life matters, Tess. My life, your life, his."
Tess-"What matters is getting home. But you could never understand that, could you? I might have been able to teach you, but that stupid bitch............."
Max-"DON'T YOU EVER CALL HER THAT !"
Tess-"had you wrapped around her.............."
Tess-"See, look how fast you run to her defense? Why couldn't you ever feel that about me? I'm your wife, Max. I'm carrying your child."
Max-"This was all some kind of plan to get pregnant and go home, wasn't it?
Home to what, Tess? To Kivar? To our enemies?"
Tess-"They're not MY enemies, Max."
Max-"You made a deal with them....with Kivar."
Tess-"No, Nacedo made a deal---40 years ago."
Max-"What was the deal? Tell me !!
Tess-"To return home with your child and deliver the 3 of you to Kivar."
Max-"And what would happen to us once you delivered us?"
Max-"How did I EVER fall in love with someone like you? How could I EVER marry you?"
Tess-"You were different. You were a king. Now, you're just a boy."
[Max raises his hand to kill her] Tess-"If you kill me, Max, you kill our son."
Max-"Go! This isn't over, Tess!"
