Liana (after seeing pictures of her clone): Wait. Wow, Emma, you look really edgy.
Emma: I think we were supposed to be doing edgy faces.
Liana: You look intense. There's a darkness behind those eyes.
Emma (a little worried): Darkness?
Liana: Your eye shadow. It's much darker than what you've got on now.
Emma: Oh, my eye shadow. Sure! I was doing a whole-
Jax (trying to help, eyeing Emma): Biker thing.
Emma: Exactly *grits her teeth and eyes him back* Biker, yep. *he gives her an 'it's all I could think of' shrug*
Ursula (after seeing Liana knock): Liana! You decided to- *expression drops when she sees Jax* bring him.
Liana: Can I come in?
Ursula : Have a seat. (sarcastically) So what's new? *gasps* Did I tell you I ran into your hubby yesterday? Lovely man! He tried to make my daughter disappear. *she sat down, bitter* Who'd like some tea?
Liana: My husband's actually why I'm here. I was hoping while I'm in Miami I could stay here, under your protection?
Ursula: I think somebody owes me an apology.
Liana: Oh, you're right. I'm so sorry I dragged you into this and put your daughter in danger. It was-
Ursula (cutting her off): Not you. *points to Jax* Him.
Jax (bewildered): Me?
Ursula: You threatened to turn me into an ice sculpture!
Liana: But, for the record, you would make a beautiful sculpture.
Ursula: Aww, that is so sweet of you to say, thank you! (to Jax) Now, out with it!
Jax: No, no way! I have nothing to be sorry for. *Liana nudges him*
Emma (seeing Daniel): Hi there.
Daniel: Sup.
Emma: Don't let me disturb you. I was just in the market for a quiet place to think.
Daniel: Ditto.
Emma: I'll just go, you were here first. *begins to leave*
Daniel: Did the say anything? *Emma turns around* The Council.
Emma: Well, they definitely don't want me messing with time anymore. But that doesn't mean I won't try. Who are they to tell me how I can use my magic? I'm the Chosen One. *pause* Do you really want to go back to the Everglades?
Daniel: Is that so hard to believe? I just-when I remembered my Miami life, these flood of emotions came rushing back, but something felt off, like I didn't belong. Now I know why, because I don't. I belong there.
