Why would she want do that?

Maybe she found out you were sleeping with him
[She walks to her car to leave]

[Ironic]
Oh, that's so clever! Who did you ask, one of the faculty or any of the students? Oh, I know! You read it in the brochure, all right?

Unless there's anything else...

Yeah, there is, one more thing!
[She goes to Voguel's car window in a satisfied, accomplice and smiling mood]

"Did", Miss Horner? Don't you mean "DOES"?
 
Nicole:
[It's a quiet night and Nicole, drinking something in a cup, is looking Mia lighting candles in an open-air altar of the school]
What do your saints say?
Mia:
I'm brooding. I'm not praying.
Nicole:
Lost your faith, ah? I've never really had any to begin with, I guess. Never believed in any of it. God, the Virgin Mary, that life begins at 40... and the people are all just basically good inside.
Mia:
Pretty soon we'll be the same person.
Nicole:
See how nice things turned out?
[She stops talking and seems to meditate briefly about something important]

I'm going inside.
[about Mia's changing the terrible diet his husband used to martyrize the whole school before he was killing by Nicole and her]

Nicole:
You know? It wasn't too smart changing the food like that, he never would've done that if he was alive.
Mia:
What is the point in killing him then? I like making it better for the boys.
Nicole:
[She starts to leave the place]
Still, if it's all the same with you I'd rather not hang for fried chicken.
Mia:
Nicole, why did you kill him?
[Nicole stops, with her back to Mia and staring at her above her shoulder]

Mia:
You could've left him. You could've left here.
Nicole:
I was understimated.
 
Mia:
[the ex-nun defies]
I can go to the police. I can tell them what we did.
Nicole:
What YOU did.
Mia:
We both did it.
Nicole:
Yeah, well. I don't think they'll see that as beneficial to me. They'll say the wife gets the school, the money, his investment, her freedom... And what did the other woman get?
[Significative silence]

Nicole:
Nothing. That's how they'll look at it.
Mia:
[Coming very close to Nicole, with complicity]
I'll say we were lovers.
Nicole:
Well. You can take the girl out of the convent.
Mia:
I thought we had the same reason.
Nicole:
We did have the same reason
[as for the money Mia has just found out that Guy cheated Nicole]

Nicole:
I just had an extra one
[Caressing Mia with cherish]

Nicole:
I'm sorry I lied to you. I couldn't do it now.

If you hadn't found this... you'd killed the one person who could have told you where it was.
Nicole:
He said we were partners. And then he acted alone
[She kisses softly Mia on her neck]
 
Mia:
I'm not gonna be able to do this.
Nicole:
Well, I suggest you try. It isn't like you burnt the toast, Mia. You killed your husband. It's all off the chart demerit-wise. Understand?
Mia:
You are so calm. Look at you. Your hair is done. You've got makeup on.
Nicole:
This is a day like any other day. We did what we have to do and it's done. Ok? It was self-defense. You've been taking it fot too long and you finally said fuck off. Good for you. Fuck him. Fuck them.
Mia:
Everything but fuck you.
Nicole:
Roughly. Now, come on!
[clapping her hands like a teacher to a pupil]

Nicole:
Places!
 
Nicole:
Killing him is a good thing. Like planting a tree.
Mia:
Maybe there is a God.
Nicole:
What are you talking about?
Mia:
I haven't believed fot so long... So when the pool was empty I thought: maybe there is a God. And He knows what we did. And He's coming for us.
Nicole:
It's not God, Honey. That's a lady detective with one breast.
Mia:
You're always laughing at me. So was Guy. He must be laughing now.
Nicole:
I'm not laughing at you, Mia.
Mia:
You are. A little. Inside. It's lonely without God, isn't it?
Nicole:
It's just lonely... Period.
 
Nicole:
You knew about her?
Mia:
Yeah , from last fall , right after you came!
Nicole:
And why didn't you tell me about her?
Mia:
Why should I make hurt like I was?
 
Nicole:
[to Mia with sarcasm]
Let me tell you one thing from one saint to another: You should keep right on praying. Wear your knees out that way for a change!
 
Nicole:
Come on, she's not a murderer. She's an ex-nun, for Christ's sake!
Voguel:
I remember them. They disappeared overnight like dial phones.

Not reliably.

If you give him the school, he'll just sell it, and then where would all the future Lee Harvey Oswalds come from?

Guy Baran:
Frankly, I didn't have to get married to have lousy sex.
Mia:
No, I did!

Mia:
Am I alive?
Nicole:
No, you are dead, this is Heaven and I am Virgin Mary.
 
Voguel:
It's not your fault - it's *men!" Testosterone! They should put it in bombs.
 
Nicole:
Still, if it's all the same to you, I'd rather not hang over fried chicken.
 
Nicole:
Why don't you take him off speed dial?
 
Nicole:
One good drink oughta do it!
