Nicole: [It's a quiet night and Nicole, drinking something in a cup, is looking Mia lighting candles in an open-air altar of the school] What do your saints say?

Mia: I'm brooding. I'm not praying.

Nicole: Lost your faith, ah? I've never really had any to begin with, I guess. Never believed in any of it. God, the Virgin Mary, that life begins at 40... and the people are all just basically good inside.

Mia: Pretty soon we'll be the same person.

Nicole: See how nice things turned out?

[She stops talking and seems to meditate briefly about something important]

Nicole: I'm going inside.

[about Mia's changing the terrible diet his husband used to martyrize the whole school before he was killing by Nicole and her]

Nicole: You know? It wasn't too smart changing the food like that, he never would've done that if he was alive.

Mia: What is the point in killing him then? I like making it better for the boys.

Nicole: [She starts to leave the place] Still, if it's all the same with you I'd rather not hang for fried chicken.

Mia: Nicole, why did you kill him?

[Nicole stops, with her back to Mia and staring at her above her shoulder]

Mia: You could've left him. You could've left here.

Nicole: I was understimated.

Nicole: Killing him is a good thing. Like planting a tree.

Mia: Maybe there is a God.

Nicole: What are you talking about?

Mia: I haven't believed fot so long... So when the pool was empty I thought: maybe there is a God. And He knows what we did. And He's coming for us.

Nicole: It's not God, Honey. That's a lady detective with one breast.

Mia: You're always laughing at me. So was Guy. He must be laughing now.

Nicole: I'm not laughing at you, Mia.

Mia: You are. A little. Inside. It's lonely without God, isn't it?

Nicole: It's just lonely... Period.

Mia: I'm not gonna be able to do this.

Nicole: Well, I suggest you try. It isn't like you burnt the toast, Mia. You killed your husband. It's all off the chart demerit-wise. Understand?

Mia: You are so calm. Look at you. Your hair is done. You've got makeup on.

Nicole: This is a day like any other day. We did what we have to do and it's done. Ok? It was self-defense. You've been taking it fot too long and you finally said fuck off. Good for you. Fuck him. Fuck them.

Mia: Everything but fuck you.

Nicole: Roughly. Now, come on!

[clapping her hands like a teacher to a pupil]

Nicole: Places!

Voguel: I got him be left

[Pointing her removed breast]

Voguel: Every cloud has a silver lining, and he was too dull to kill

[She stops to smile. About Mia]

Voguel: What about her? Did she want to kill her husband?

Nicole: Why would she want do that?

Voguel: Maybe she found out you were sleeping with him

[She walks to her car to leave]

Nicole: [Ironic] Oh, that's so clever! Who did you ask, one of the faculty or any of the students? Oh, I know! You read it in the brochure, all right?

Voguel: So she knew?

Nicole: Of course she knew! Ask her! Come on, she's not a murderer. She's an ex-nun, for Christ sake.

Voguel: [Laughing again] I remember them! They disappeared overnight, like dial phones.

[Serious again]

Voguel: Whay about you? What if he wouldn't leave her?

Nicole: Honey, if I couldn't get a man to leave her I wouldn't kill him, I'd kill myself.

Voguel: [Going into her car] Well, he has lef her. Apparently. One way or another. Well...

[about to start the car]

Voguel: Unless there's anything else...

Nicole: Yeah, there is, one more thing!

[She goes to Voguel's car window in a satisfied, accomplice and smiling mood]

Nicole: Guy did it barefoot!

Voguel: [She put a gum in her mouth pulling a face of sarcastic wisdom. Before starting the car and leaving the place] "Did", Miss Horner? Don't you mean "DOES"?

Mia: [the ex-nun defies] I can go to the police. I can tell them what we did.

Nicole: What YOU did.

Mia: We both did it.

Nicole: Yeah, well. I don't think they'll see that as beneficial to me. They'll say the wife gets the school, the money, his investment, her freedom... And what did the other woman get?

[Significative silence]

Nicole: Nothing. That's how they'll look at it.

Mia: [Coming very close to Nicole, with complicity] I'll say we were lovers.

Nicole: Well. You can take the girl out of the convent.

Mia: I thought we had the same reason.

Nicole: We did have the same reason

[as for the money Mia has just found out that Guy cheated Nicole]

Nicole: I just had an extra one

[Caressing Mia with cherish]

Nicole: I'm sorry I lied to you. I couldn't do it now.

Mia: If you hadn't found this... you'd killed the one person who could have told you where it was.

Nicole: He said we were partners. And then he acted alone

[She kisses softly Mia on her neck]
