Lucy Carlyle: What are we doing this for? What does any of it mean if we end up stabbed or dead at the bottom of the Thames with nobody left to care? This doesn't feel like winning.
(Later at home...)
Anthony Lockwood: I'm sorry. You were right. I got totally carried away on this job. I was thoughtless and reckless. I just wanted to say, don't give up on us. Please. Or... what I really should say is... don't give up on me. To be honest, the bottom of the Thames used to be a far more appealing place to be. And really no one would have cared. But now...
Lucy Carlyle: Two hours ago, at that party, you were petrified at the thought of me leaving you. You made me believe that you, me, and George could be a family. But Lockwood & Co. can never be that, because at the center of it is you. And at the center of you is just a...
Anthony Lockwood: Is what? A cold, dead heart of stone?
Lucy Carlyle: Yeah, maybe. But who knows, though? 'Cause you don't actually show anyone.
Anthony Lockwood: Nothing good comes from letting people in. Everything ends and everyone leaves. When my time comes, I don't intend on leaving anyone behind who's gonna lie there every night wishing I would just walk through that door one more time.
Lucy Carlyle: Then you never should have let me in. Or George. Because now it's far too late.
Anthony Lockwood: The problem is, when you like the spotlight as much as I do, it's quite an adjustment to realize that the real reason you might be here is to shine it on somebody else.
Lucy Carlyle: You believe me.
Anthony Lockwood: I do. About everything.
Lucy Carlyle: Thanks. You know I don't actually want the spotlight, right?
Anthony Lockwood: I know. It's maddening.
Anthony Lockwood: We need you. And it's not because you're an asset.
Lucy Carlyle: Why, then?
Anthony Lockwood: Because... because you're... Lucy Carlyle. We can't let you go.
Lucy Carlyle: You have to. Barnes will shut you down. He knows I'm illegal.
Anthony Lockwood: That's why I went on TV, silly. Just to show Barnes he can shove his threats. Screw the rules. They bend the rules all the time. Why shouldn't we? I mean, why can't we change the rules?
Lucy Carlyle: Because we're nobodies.
Anthony Lockwood: No, we're not. We're Lockwood & Co. You, me, and George.
Mrs. Carlyle: First thing tomorrow, I am taking you to Jacobs, and you'll apologize. You'll admit you're to blame and ask him to take you back. If he doesn't, you will beg until he does. Do you understand?
Lucy Carlyle: Yes. I understand that you don't care about me. Or Norrie. Or the truth. She was my best friend. We were a family. You think I'd ever do anything to hurt any of them?
Mrs. Carlyle: That's enough.
Lucy Carlyle: No, it's not. All my life, you treated me like I was nothing, till I could make you a bit of money. All I wanted is for you to love me. But you're incapable. You can't feel anything. You are deader than dead. (mother slaps her)
Mrs. Carlyle: He's expecting us at nine.
