Delia: They're in there? They must live like animals.
Charles: It's locked. How'd they get in?

Lydia: Shh! They didn't commit suicide.

[throws paper away and starts over]
Lydia: I am *utterly* alone.

Lydia: They don't wanna come down.
Delia: Charles...
Otho: Why not?

Charles: As soon as we get settled, we'll build you a dark room in the basement, okay?
