- My name is Victoria Winters. Here in Collinwood, I sit in a quiet room teaching the son of a frightened man, a man who seems to be impelled by constantly growing fear.
Roger claims to be at Sam's to have his portrait done; Bill starts to joke and ask for coffee from Sam. Roger left his car in town, and asked Bill to take him, but Bill wants to stay and talk to Sam. Roger leaves; Bill compliments Sam's late wife.
Bill switches from coffee to booze, (he's a man after Sam's own heart). Bill plies Sam with liquor, asking questions about Burke.
Roger and Burke encounter one another at the restaurant, where Roger notices Burke admiring Carolyn's ring. It was a gift from her Uncle Roger on her 16th birthday. Roger takes the ring and forbids Burke from seeing Carolyn. Roger shows up at Collinwood and cancels Carolyn's date.
Carolyn meets with Burke at 12:30 anyway and they banter back an forth. Carolyn calls home; she tells Victoria Winters she won't be home for dinner - she has a date. Carolyn leaves the restaurant and drives off - she will follow Burke to Bangor.
Before passing out, Sam admits to Bill he's the "thin line" between Roger living in Collinwood and prison stripes.
Memorable quotes Edit
- Burke: Good morning Roger!
- Bill Malloy: Well hello Roger, Sam. Hope I'm not interruptin' anything.
- Sam: Don't you knock before you come into a man's house?
- Bill: I did. But you two were makin' so much noise in here, you couldn't hear me. You want privacy, should keep your door locked.
