"Pandora Reynolds: [looking at Hendrik's painting of her] It's not like I am at all. But it's who I'd like to be.
[looking at Hendrik]
Pandora Reynolds: Why am I not like that?
Hendrik: Perhaps you haven't found what you want yet, perhaps you're unfulfilled. Perhaps you don't even know what you want, perhaps you're discontented. Discontentment often finds vent through malice and destruction.
Pandora Reynolds: [suddenly angry] Malice and destruction, is that what you think? Well perhaps I can find something here to destroy.
Hendrik: I'm quite certain you will.
Pandora Reynolds: Your painting of me perhaps. Would you like me to destroy your painting?

Hendrik: I was angry once before. I can never be angry again.
Pandora Reynolds: [pause, then quietly] You've made me feel quite ashamed of myself. It's a new emotion, I'm not sure I like it."
