Celia Steimer: Did you know? Did you know?... I know what you did when you took the photo of that girl - you walked away and left her, so you withdrew the entry so you wouldn't have to deal with it... Was she just like me? Was she just someone you could pick up and throw away and forget about?... How do you live with yourself?

Andrew: All this time I wondered why you upped and left. You knew what he was up to didn't you... You know the really sad part - I didn't even find out until I read the will... You killed me when you walked away and left me with that evil piece of scum. You had the gall to come back here and bring that thing into our house, my mother's house... Like father, like son.
