Michael Guerin:
[Max, and Tess with the baby, enter Michael's apartment. Michael is sitting watching television, but jumps to his feet, incredulous, when he sees her, and raises his hand to blast her... ] Tess, you are not here!

Max Evans:
[rushes forward to get between Tess and Michael] Michael, no!

Michael Guerin:
Maxwell, get out of the way.

Max Evans:
Not until you calm down.

Michael Guerin:
Whatever she told you, she's lying.

Max Evans:
She has my son.

Michael Guerin:
Well, get the baby out of the way.

Max Evans:
No, he needs her. If you kill her, my son will die.

Michael Guerin:
[Hesitates, but backs off] Max, what the hell's she doin' here?

Max Evans:
It's a long story. But we need to get them out of Roswell.

Michael Guerin:
Yeah. My heart bleeds.

Tess Harding:
Nice to see you, too, Michael.

Max Evans:
[warning Tess] Hey, don't start. [He reaches down to take the baby from her]

Michael Guerin:
[Outside Michael's apartment, Liz arrives. She preens and smiles as she reaches for the door, eagerly anticipating her evening with Max.Inside, Tess has just finished telling her story to Michael] Oh, so you're the one that crashed in the desert the other night.

Tess Harding:
You always were the quick one, Guerin.

Liz Parker:
[Suddenly Tess is blasted through the air. She lands hard in the adjoining room and Max and Michael are shocked. They look back towards the door] Get up, bitch! [Liz's outstretched hand crackles with green sparks. Without waiting, Liz blasts Tess again, knocking her back into the wall as a stunned Max and Michael watch for a moment in disbelief] I'll kill you!

Max Evans:
- Liz- -No- [Max quickly hands the baby to Michael and lunges to stop Liz]

Liz Parker:
You're a murderer! I'll kill you!

Max Evans:
Liz...!

[Max restrains Liz and pulls her outside onto the patio]

[Tess has a stunned look on her face because of her not knowing about Liz's powers]

Michael Guerin:
[smirking at Tess]... Welcome back.

Kyle Valenti:
[Liz walks out just as Kyle is coming in] Gee, Liz. Is everything okay? [Liz just blows on past him]... 'guess not...

Tess Harding:
Kyle! Thank God you're here!

Kyle Valenti:
[comes into the room, but paces back and forth in front of Tess, frowning] Don't come near me.

Tess Harding:
[obviously sad] Kyle, at least give me a chance to explain!

Kyle Valenti:
[to Michael] Why haven't you killed her yet?

Michael Guerin:
Max wouldn't let me.

Max Evans:
[Max comes up and takes the baby away from Tess] Come on, Zan, - I don't want you to see this...

Tess Harding:
Be careful with him, Max.

Kyle Valenti:
So, what are you doing here?

Tess Harding:
Ask one of them, I'm sick of explaining.

Kyle Valenti:
Okay, why don't you explain what the hell you were doing at our house earlier.

Tess Harding:
I thought you'd help me.

Kyle Valenti:
Then why'd you run away in such a hurry?

Tess Harding:
I was protecting my son.

Kyle Valenti:
He wasn't in danger!

Tess Harding:
Your father had a gun! Instincts took over! You're lucky I didn't kill you!

Kyle Valenti:
[laughs ironically] Oh... I guess I owe you one. Oh, actually... No.

Tess Harding:
[Still sad] Kyle...

Kyle Valenti:
We took you into our home, Tess. We protected you. And how did you repay us? You brainwashed me into carrying Alex's dead body!

Tess Harding:
I never meant to hurt...

Kyle Valenti:
Well, too late!

Tess Harding:
You've never even heard my side of the story.

Kyle Valenti:
You have a side? The murderer has a side!

Tess Harding:
I was raised by a killer, Kyle... a sick and twisted man...!

Kyle Valenti:
Don't play the victim here, Tess. You know, of all the aliens I've met... you're the only one who has no soul. [He walks away from her, leaving her stung and frowning]

[Liz is on the roof]

Max:
Liz!

[She walks to the edge and looks over]

Max:
I have to talk to you.

[She lets him in]

Max:
I can't imagine how you must feel right now, I mean, I've thought about telling you a thousand times.

Liz:
You have, me?

[Max smiles]

Liz:
What?

Max:
Sorry, I just , uh, I just keep picturing you in that dress, with the, uh, the cupcakes... on it.

Liz:
What?

Max:
Forget it, it was a long time ago.

Liz:
[Realizes what he is talking about] Oh my God. That's, that's right. I can't believe I actually wore that thing! [Realizes something] I had that dress in kindergarten, I didn't know you until the third grade. Did you like, read my mind or something?

Max:
No, I-I don't read minds. When I healed you, I made this, this, I don't know, this connection. And I got this rush of images... An image of that dress flashed into my mind, and, I knew how you felt about it.

Liz:
How did I feel about it?

Max:
It was the single supreme embarrassment of your life. But your Mom made it for you, she was so proud of it, she'd never made a dress before, so you wore it. For her sake.

[Liz nods in shock]

Max:
I've never tried this before, but maybe I can make the connection go the other way. So you can see, you know that, that I'm still me.

[He advances until he's in front of her]

Max:
I have to touch you.

[Liz nods]

[Max puts his hands on both side of her head]

Max:
Now just take deep breaths and try to let your mind blank out.

Liz:
[Liz gets a rush of images, Max and Isabel walking down the road and the Evans finding them, Max on the first day, and how he sees her. In the halls at school talking to Maria, and since they were in third grade] VOICE-OVER: I could feel everything he was feeling. I could feel his loneliness. For the first time I was really seeing Max Evans, I saw me as he saw me, and the amazing thing was, in his eyes, I was beautiful.

Max:
[Max pulls away] Did it work? [Liz nods and Max looks at her embarrassed]

Isabel:
Okay. I'm just going to make it simple. And I don't even think is that big of a deal anyway so I'm just gonna say it and you can react. There's, there's someone I want to tell about us.

Michael:
I'm glad you don't think that's a big deal.

Max:
Who?

Isabel:
He's name is Jesse Ramirez. You both know him. He's...

Max:
The lawyer that works for Dad?

Isabel:
Yeah.

Max:
And why do you wanna tell him?

Isabel:
Because we've gotten close.

Max:
Close?

Isabel:
Yes, close.

Max:
Meaning you and he are...

Isabel:
Involved.

Michael:
Are you pregnant?

Isabel:
No. We haven't even slept together.

Michael:
Has he seen you use your powers?

Isabel:
No.

Michael:
Why are we having this conversation?

Max:
Why do you need to tell him?

Isabel:
I don't need to, I want to. I want him to know because I want to be honest with him. I love him and I want him to know me. I don't wanna hide. God, do you know how humiliating this is for me? To have to come here and ask your permission to have an open conversation with my boyfriend? Can you just imagine it for a second, put yourself in my position.

Michael:
I'm gonna put this as simple as possible. Isabel, I'm happy you have a boyfriend. Congrats. That said, lie about the alien thing.

Isabel:
He's gonna leave, Max. If I'm not honest with him, he's gonna leave.

Max:
How long have you two been?

Isabel:
Three months. But I know him. I know him. This is the first time I've ever felt his way. I'm in love with him. If I lose this, I don't know what the hell I'm doing here on Earth. I mean, you have Liz, Michael has Maria. This is the first time I've had someone.

[after everyone else leaves the Granolith Chamber]

Max:
[to Tess] Did you kill Alex?

Tess:
I didn't want to. I wish I hadn't, but I did.

Max:
Why?

Tess:
Look Max, the-the clock's ticking, we don't really have time...

Max:
Tell me why!

Tess:
He would have told you what I did and I couldn't let that happen.

Max:
So you just, you just killed him?

Tess:
I didn't mean to. His brain was just so weakened by the mindwarp, and... look, none of this matters now.

Max:
Life matters Tess. My life, your life, his...

Tess:
What matters is getting home, but you could never understand that could you? I might have been able to teach you but that stupid bitch had you wrapped around her...

Max:
Don't you ever call her that!

Tess:
See! Look how fast you run to her defense! Why couldn't you ever feel that about me? I'm your wife, Max! I'm carrying your child!

Max:
This was all some kind of plan to get pregnant and go home, wasn't it? Home to what, Tess? To Kivar? To our enemies?

Tess:
They're not my enemies, Max.

Max:
You made a deal with them, with Kivar.

Tess:
No, Nacedo made a deal, 40 years ago.

Max:
What was the deal? Tell me!

Tess:
To return home with your child, and deliver the three of you to Kivar.

Max:
And what would happen to us once you delivered us? [Tess doesn't answer]

Max:
How did I ever fall in love with someone like you? How could I ever marry you?

Tess:
You were different - you were a king! Now you're just a boy. [Max raises his hand to Tess' neck] You kill me, Max, you kill our son.

Max:
[agonized] Go. This isn't over, Tess

[Max leaves the Granolith chamber]
