Catherine: : You taught me to face my fears, always, Vincent. Tell me-
Vincent: : What shall I tell you? That I am not this shadow, this man-monster that you hunt? Must you hear the words before you trust? Hear them then, it is not me. Catherine, I would never hurt you. (Catherine takes an involuntary step backwards)
Catherine: : No, Vincent, no.... I did not mean to-
Vincent: : To pull away? I know. I know your heart, Catherine, but sometimes the words that are not spoken are the truest words of all. (barely audible)... they hurt.
Catherine: : What are you saying?
