SCENE TWO

 
NANCY - Even when she was a baby she was always running away from me. [a choked sob] But she always came back.
 

BACK to transcript.

 

SCENE THREE

This song, written by William H. Penn in 1901 (words by Albert H. Fitz), was not in the shooting script. The shooting script merely describes a woman singing "music of the time".

SCENE FOUR

 
SHARON - Thank you, Duncan MacLeod.

MacLEOD - Keep your door locked.
 

BACK to transcript.

 

SCENE FIVE

 
[MacLeod tests the handle. It's unlocked. He opens the door and steps into the room. He sees Sharon against the far wall, staring at him. Afraid.]

MacLEOD - Didn't I tell you to lock...

SCENE SIX

EXT. CEMETERY THE PRESENT DAY

[MacLeod's eyeing Axel as we hear the Minister's final words:]

MINISTER - ...and that is how we know that death is not the end. That it is merely a transition to a new beginning.

[The minister nods. The headstone is unveiled. Simple and beautiful. The Webster family and friends gather around, offering condolences.]

[MacLeod looks up and breaks away from the group. Steps up to confront Axel.]

These lines are not present in the Shooting Script -- the funeral service ends before DM confronts Axel.

BACK to transcript.

 

SCENE EIGHT

 
MacLEOD - Three o'clock.

SHARON - Fine. [She starts off.]

MacLEOD - Where are you going? [no answer] Sharon.
 

BACK to transcript.

 

SCENE NINE

 
SHARON - [waves] Don't worry about me. I'll be there... three o'clock.

[MacLeod watches her go, frustrated...]

 

EXT. DOCK LATER THAT DAY

[MacLeod waits, pacing. He checks the clock overhead. It's past three. He strides off...]
 

BACK to transcript.

 

SCENE TEN

These lines are not in the Shooting Script.

BACK to transcript.

 

SCENE ELEVEN

 
[Amanda and Michelle exchange a conspiratorial look. MacLeod tries to ignore it.]

MacLEOD - [with a smile] I think a convent is just what she needs.

AMANDA - There'll always be Paris.

MICHELLE - I saw that movie. [to MacLeod; wistful] I'm never gonna be old enough for you, am I? [Off MacLeod's smile, she turns to Amanda.]
