Episode 73 – Before the earthquake
Eden – Plotting the overthrow of some South American dictatorship?
Cruz – haha...well aren’t we up early? I woulda thought a lady of leisure would sleep till noon
Eden - Having never been a lady of leisure, I wouldn’t know
Cruz – That’s right I forgot you’re a business exec now, what’s that? Plans to take over a multi-national corporation?
Eden – That’s next week
Cruz – What’s this week?
Eden - Oh, plans to take over our newly acquired beach front property
Cruz - Ah, that’s what I’ve always liked about you Eden
Eden - What’s that?
Cruz - Your fine sense of opportunism
Eden - It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s gotta do it
Cruz- What are you gonna do? Uh put some condos on it or uh, disco?
Eden - Actually I have some good ideas for it, I’m meeting with the architects and the coastal commissioner
Cruz - Well whatever you build, you better make it earthquake proof
Eden - you’re not on that kick again are you?
Cruz - Actually I’m quite serious. But then what do I know right?
Eden – Right
Cruz - You’re the only person in this town who knows about my past, just like I know about yours
Eden - Is that another threat?
Cruz - I would think, that after what we’ve been through together you might trust me. You’ve seen me work, you know the kind of pressures I’ve had to deal with, the chances I’ve had to take, I wouldn’t be alive today if I hadn’t learned to listen to my instincts
Eden - Your instincts have been good. On occasion
Cruz - Then trust em
Eden - Only on occasion
Cruz - Maybe this is one of those occasions
Eden - What’s your point Cruz?
Cruz - I think there’s gonna be one hell of an earthquake here, soon
Eden- did you give this news to the press yet?
Cruz - I’m not joking Eden!. For once I hope my instincts are wrong
Eden - Well your instincts might be wrong, I’d bet money on it
Cruz - And what if they’re not?
Eden - Well what are we gonna do about it?
Cruz - Go some place, go to New York. You told me you wanted to go see Japan, why don’t ya just take your family and get outta California for a little while
Eden – Well sure, why not? Why don’t we do that, that’s a great idea, why don’t we just stay away for 20 years, then your instincts will have been right, and uh, there would have been a major earthquake
Cruz – ah Eden
Eden - What?
Cruz - I don’t know why I ever think you’ll listen to me
Eden – maybe it’s your arrogance, or your ego... or both!
