Emily Nelson: Come here, little dude.
Nicky Nelson: Can me and Miles have a playdate?
Emily Nelson: [to Stephanie] Do you drink?
[Stephanie looks confused]
Emily Nelson: Does your kid drink? Maybe? I mean it’s never too early to start teaching them.
Stephanie Ward: I think you’re joking, but great.
Sean Nelson: She is an enigma, my wife. You can get close to her, but you can never quite reach her. She’s like a beautiful curse.
Emily Nelson: Want to trade confessions?
Stephanie Ward: No, no, no.
Emily Nelson: Come on. What’s the wildest thing you’ve ever done?
Emily Nelson: Did you just take my picture? Erase it.
Stephanie Ward: I guess I’m probably not the kind of person you’re normally friends with.
Emily Nelson: Oh, you do not want to be friends with me. Trust me.
Stephanie Ward: Everybody has a dark side. Some of us are better at hiding it than others.
[on the phone]
Emily Nelson: Stephanie, I need your help.
Stephanie Ward: Uh, are you okay?
Emily Nelson: I’m fine, but I do need just a simple favor. Can you come over?
Stephanie Ward: Yeah.
Emily Nelson: People do terrible things for their own reasons.
Emily Nelson: I want to know your secret. Tell me.
Stephanie Ward: Emily, if you’re out there, we’re all really worried.
Stephanie Ward: Five days ago, Emily went missing. I’m realizing I don’t know her as well as I thought I did.
[to Stephanie; referring to Emily]
Woman: I’m warning you. You go poking around in her past, you’re going to find something that is terrifying. She is not a normal person like you or me. I’ve never seen such a beautiful girl want to be so invisible.
Stephanie Ward: I smell her, Sean. I smell her perfume like a ghost.
Sean Nelson: That’s just you being paranoid.
Nicky Nelson: I saw my mom. She told me to say hi to Stephanie.
Detective: [to Stephanie] Were you aware that he took out an extra four million dollar life insurance policy on Emily before she disappeared?
Detective: [to Stephanie] I thought you knew more than you were letting on.
