Max-"What if there is someone out there somewhere waiting for us to come home, you know?
Another Mom and Dad? I know we never really talk about this stuff.
Do you? Wonder about it all?"
Max-"Well, if we could find out? What if someone had the answers for us?
Would you want to know?"
Isabel-"I think I'd be really scared. What is this about, Max?
Is this about the key Michael found cause you know we can't do anything about it."
Max-"We're always being so cautious, you know. Always watching behind our backs. Never getting too involved, but we're never moving forward either. We're just kinda stuck, Isabel. I'm not sure I want to be stuck anymore."
Isabel-"What's making you think about this? The key or Liz?"
Max-"I'm not sure."
Isabel-"Max, we already took a big risk just telling them and I don't like where it's headed." Max-"I trust them, Isabel"
Isabel-"You want to trust them."
Max-"I know this is all really strange."
Liz-"No, no it's not."
Max-"And keeping a secret like this is a lot of pressure."
Liz-"Yes, but Max I would never even say anything."
Max-" I know,I know. Never on purpose, and I believe that. But what about Maria?"
Liz-"Maria? Max, no, she's like completely trustworthy.
She's like, um. She's like a fortress. She's like the Fort Knox of friends."
Max-"So she'll be okay when she goes to see Valenti tomorrow?"
Liz-"Oh yeah, totally. She'll be fine. I'm gonna talk to her about it. Don't worry. "
Max-"Right,okay. I guess I am a little worried.
It's just that she seems to be a little uh, high----"
Liz-"I know, high strung. Well, yeah, you see that's what Maria's like on the outside,
but on the inside she's like this really,really,um, like,umů"
Liz-"No, she's not calm, it's something else. She's like this, on the inside, she's much more,um, Max, Maria's my best friend in the whole world, and she's going to be fine tomorrow. I'll make sure of it."
Max-"Right. It's just, it's important."
Liz-"I know it is. You don't need to worry about it."
Liz-"Max, I'm so sorry. I should never have even told Maria in the first place."
Max-"Well you did it 'cause you trusted her, and you needed someone to talk to. It was only natural."
Liz-"So, why did you tell me?"
Max-"It was only natural."
Liz-"What did you mean the other day about that thing, about the tree?"
Max-"Just somebody's advice. Not to get stuck behind them."
Liz-"Oh. Well, did you take it? That advice?"
Max-" I think I just did."
"The future was always so clear to me. A straight path towards my goal. I just never counted on there being any intersections. I guess that's what makes life more interesting. Keeping yourself open, letting new people in, changing your mind."
