Beth: [referring to their accommodation] Can we move in? Stay forever? Okay. That’s it. I’m never going home. Think Rob would notice?
Kate: Probably. But who cares?
Kate: Finally. To weekends away.
Beth: With best friends.
Beth: [over phone] I don’t know what to wear. Nothing fancy enough.
Rob: So just go in your granny panties. You’ll still look great.
Beth: I’m so tired. I just want to go to bed.
Rob: So go to bed. It’s your holiday too.
Rob: [over phone] You guys have a good night. Don’t get too drunk.
Kate: We will. And we will.
Beth: We definitely will.
Beth: [referring to her shoes] If I break my neck in these things, it’s your fault.
Kate: You look like a supermodel. You should keep them.
Beth: Yeah. Yeah. They’ll look great at the supermarket.
Beth: I’ve been a crap friend. I should’ve been there for you.
Kate: You had a baby. You’re forgiven.
Kate: Isn’t it about time you got back on the horse?
Beth: I just don’t feel like it.
Kate: Is it Rob? Is he not doing it for you anymore?
Beth: No. No. It’s not Rob.
Kate: A body never lies.
Beth: No. No. It’s me.
Kate: [referring to Rob] Have you thought about leaving him?
Kate: If you’re not happy, take it from me, divorce is the answer. Especially when it comes with a big fat alimony paycheck.
Beth: We’re just going through a rough patch.
Kate: [to Beth] Oh, come on. Let’s relive our misspent youth. It took me months to convince you to come away. Who knows when we’re going to do it again.
Kate: [referring to Luka] When was the last time you got hit on by someone that hot?
Beth: He’s not hitting on me.
Kate: Yeah, he is. Come on, we were just saying you need to get back on the horse.
Beth: I’m married.
Kate: So? Rob doesn’t have to find out.
Beth: Are you joking?
Kate: One night of excitement might bring you out of your rut.
Beth: [the next morning after Kate’s gone missing] We are meant to be doing a bike tour.
Rob: There you go. That’s why she’s vanished. Should’ve told her it was a shopping tour.
Beth: She didn’t leave a note, and she hasn’t texted either.
Rob: Did you have an argument?
Beth: [recalls Kate yelling “b**ch” at her] No.
Beth: She’s not answering her phone. And I think I found blood.
Pavic: Did you check the hospitals? Maybe she had an accident.
Beth: Yeah. I did, but there’s no record of her being admitted.
Zain: Has something happened? Did you lose something?
Beth: My friend.

Beth: Escorts? As in… Well, I didn’t know that was an actual, real thing? I didn’t hire them.
Zain: Then your friend must have.
Beth: No. She didn’t hire them either. Oh, my God. She kept going on and on about how I needed to have some fun. I’m such an idiot. I wondered why he was into me.
Rob: [over phone] You went to the police? I mean, this is Kate we’re talking about. She’s not exactly reliable.
Beth: No. No. She wouldn’t do this to me. Leave without telling me?
Rob: Really? How many times on a night out did she ditch you for a bloke she’d only just met?
Beth: No, I’ve left her dozens of messages. Something’s happened to her.
Rob: I’ve got some brilliant pictures to show you of Aster by the way. Earlier on, we were watching The Godfather, and it turns out she really likes the part where they find the horse’s head in the bed.
Beth: Great parenting.
Zain: How did you two meet?
Beth: Kate and me? I was on a semester abroad. We were roommates. I met my husband Rob through her. We hit it off straight away.
Zain: You and your husband.
Beth: No, me and Kate actually. We were total opposites, but just clicked. You know, right away. She’s an extrovert.
Beth: How did you meet your wife?
Zain: Mina. She was a doctor at the hospital where I was doing my nursing training? She’s like you, very trusting of people. She believed me when I say I was a nice guy and agreed to go out with me.
Beth: Is Mina okay with you helping me?
Zain: She’s dead.
Zain: [after finding out the escorts stole and pawned Kate’s bag] You think you were drugged?
Beth: I’ve never been that drunk before? They got me a glass of water. They could’ve easily slipped something into it. What if they drugged Kate too, you know? So they could rob us.
Zain: Why didn’t they take your bag too?
Zain: Maybe Kate drugged you.
Beth: Why would she do that?
Zain: Well, she did hire them to have sex with you.
Beth: No. No. She would never hurt me.
Beth: Something bad has happened to her. I know it!
Kate: [as Beth remembers the previous night, referring to the men] I don’t think they’re serial killers, Beth. And even if they are, I don’t know if I care. Look at them.
Beth: You need to interview these men. I think they might have drugged me, or maybe both of us.
Pavic: You just said you didn’t do drugs.
Beth: I didn’t do drugs. I was drugged! There’s a difference.
Pavic: Funny you didn’t mention it before.
Beth: Because I wasn’t sure. I’m still not.

Beth: [over phone] What do you mean, Jay?
Jay: It’s a classic Kate move. Going missing? Always has to be the center of attention. She wore red on our wedding day. I mean, should’ve taken that as a warning of sharks in the water.
Beth: [over phone] Are you saying she’s faking her disappearance? Why? Why would she do that?
Jay: Because drama is embedded in her DNA like an extra chromosome. You know, she once ran off to New York for a week after we had an argument with absolutely no word if she was dead or alive. Alright, just trust me, she likes to punish people.
Rob: [after he shows up in Croatia] So what if Jay’s right, and she’s messing with us?
Beth: No. No. I know Kate. She likes to be the center of attention, yes. But she wouldn’t do this to me.
Beth: [referring to Kate’s body being found in the river] But you think it was an accident? That she fell in? Or do you think she was killed?
Rob: [to Beth, referring to Kate] I keep seeing her lying there on that slab. I feel bad, you know, for finding her annoying. I should’ve been nicer.
