  • The Question: [lock picking, door opens quietly, footsteps: 2 instances, door closes quietly] The faulty bug is planted over there...
  • Batwoman: How long is this supposed to take?
  • The Question: You don't have to be here, Kate...
  • Batwoman: Yeah, but how long?
  • The Question: I told you I could take care of this myself.
  • Batwoman: Yeah, I just feel kinda responsible. I mean, I dumped this case on you.
  • The Question: No... you didn't.
  • Batwoman: Yes, I did.
  • The Question: I'm happy to do it. I mean, I know Sonia...
  • Batwoman: Still... I appreciate you doing this for me...
  • The Question: Don't mention it... I'm serious. Don't mention it, especially around Alex... She doesn't know I'm spending a lot of time with my ex.
  • Batwoman: You came out to her?
  • The Question: If you're asking if she knows I'm a lesbian-
  • Batwoman: I mean, as a mask and capes sort? [scoff] Smartass.
  • The Question: Sorta...
  • Batwoman: Sorta?
  • The Question: In a roundabout way.
  • Batwoman: Renee? How roundabout?
  • The Question: I told her I do some work on the side for Batman.
  • Batwoman: Not exactly a lie.
  • The Question: See?
  • Batwoman: Not exactly the truth, either.
  • The Question: Yeah? Well, what can I say? My mentor taught me to be paranoid.
  • Batwoman: Tot or Vic?
  • The Question: Vic. Tot's more like my...
  • Batwoman: Sidekick?
  • The Question: More of a pain in the ass, really.
  • Batwoman: What was Vic like?
  • The Question: He was also a pain in the ass. A lot like Tot, really... At least, the Tot you know. The Tot back then was a bit nicer... Nut only by a bit.
  • Batwoman: [scoff] Tot was nicer? I do't believe you.
  • The Question: No. It's true. Really, it is. He changed a lot after Vic died. It was hard for him.
  • Batwoman: I can bet. They were pretty close, weren't they?
  • The Question: Yeah... [sigh] We should hurry up and get out of here. I don't need any lectures from Tot. I've got enough stress in my life already.
  • Batwoman: Okay. You got it planted? Then let's get out of here...
  • The Question: Wait... Hold on. You hear that?
  • Batwoman: Mm-hmm. Someone's coming.
  • The Question: We need to hide.
  • Batwoman: Where?
  • The Question: Here. [rapid footsteps: 2 instances, closet doors opens, footsteps: 2 instances, feet shuffling, closet door closes] [whisper:] Don't get any ideas, Katie.
  • Batwoman: [scoff] You wish.
  • The Question: [whisper:] Hush.
  • Phosphorus: [muffled footsteps, door opens] Strange.
  • Rupert Thorne: [footsteps] Hmm? What's that?
  • Phosphorus: I could have sworn I locked this when we left.
  • Batwoman: [whisper:] You know what this reminds me of?
  • The Question: [whisper:] Shut up.
  • Rupert Thorne: Hmm. No matter. I'll make this quick. [footsteps, clatter] I just need to grab the ledger from the safe for our meeting with Cobblepot and Duquesne.
  • Batwoman: [whisper:] We should bust that up.
  • The Question: [whisper:] Shut up.
  • Phosphorus: Huh? Hey, Rupert... Did you hear something? [slow footsteps]
  • Rupert Thorne: Hmm? No... No. I did not. [safe dial clicking, safe dial spinning, safe dial clicking, safe dial spinning, safe dial clicking] Here, Xander. Hold this.
  • Phosphorus: [footsteps] Weird. I could have sworn I heard something.
  • Batwoman: [whisper:] You know what this reminds me of?
  • The Question: [whisper:] When I strangled you for not shutting up?
  • Phosphorus: There... There it is again. Did you hear it?
  • The Question: [whisper:] I'm going to use you for a body shield.
  • Batwoman: [whisper:] Relax. It's fine...
  • Rupert Thorne: No. I hear nothing, Xander. Are you feeling alright?
  • Phosphorus: I am fine... I... I'm giving the place a once-over.
  • Rupert Thorne: [scoff] Why?
  • Phosphorus: I am telling you I heard something.
  • Rupert Thorne: [sigh] There is no time. With traffic alone we are almost certain to be late. We need to be going.
  • Phosphorus: Boss, I'm telling you. I heard something.
  • Rupert Thorne: And I am telling you that you're being paranoid. [footsteps] Come on. Let's go... and be certain to lock the door this time, eh?
  • Phosphorus: [scoff] Fine. [footsteps, door closes, lock engaged]
  • Batwoman: [silence: 5.6 seconds, whack] Ow! What was that for?
  • The Question: I should kill you.
  • Batwoman: What? I was just asking you if you knew what this reminded me of?
  • The Question: Fine. Kate... What on Earth does this remind you of?
  • Batwoman: The military... You want to know why?
  • The Question: [sigh] Because we were both in the closet?
  • Batwoman: [chuckle] Yeah...
  • The Question: [sigh, closet door opens, cough] Well, at least in those days you smelled better when I was pressed up against you. That form fitting armor stinks.
  • Batwoman: [scoff] Harold Allnut would be hurt to hear that. Hell, I'm a bit offended on his behalf. These things are decidedly comfortable. I hardly even sweat in them.
  • The Question: Oh, so you've have taken up smoking, then have you? Trying to curb your weight gain so you can keep your girlish figure for the batsuit then?
  • Batwoman: [scoff] I don't smoke.
  • The Question: [sniff] Wait.. Then what was that smell?
  • Batwoman: We are in a place called the Tobacconists' Club, Renee... The place reeks of cigars and gin... and other things.
  • The Question: No. Not that... [sniff] It's faint, but... Tobacco... A different brand... A distinct brand. Not cigars. I smelled it more in the closet... [footsteps, sniff, sniff]
  • Batwoman: Okay...
  • The Question: Where are they? [paper shuffling]
  • Batwoman: Have you taken up smoking?
  • The Question: Ah-ha, funny... Oh no. No...
  • Batwoman: What is it?
  • The Question: [cigarette packing crinkling] Morleys. Number Twenty-Seven.
  • Batwoman: So?
  • The Question: This is the brand that Vic smoked! [sigh, footsteps, growl] There's like fifteen packs in here, all in the packaging from the year that Vic died.
  • Batwoman: Huh, that's some coincidence.
  • The Question: Kate, do you know what this means? Those [expletive] killed him!
  • Batwoman: Whoa... Hold on. Let's not rush in to anything.
  • The Question: It's plain as day. These bastards must have switched the packs and poisoned him.
  • Batwoman: That's a big leap to make, Renee...
  • The Question: No. It's not! Vic was a member of the Tobacconists' Club. He was working on an investigation involving them.
  • Batwoman: That doesn't mean they killed him.
  • The Question: [scoff] Are you seriously defending them?
  • Batwoman: What?! No! Don't even say that... I'm not defending them. I'm saying there's a lot of variables here, Renee... Let's at least take these packs to Tot for testing.
  • The Question: [pause, scoff, sigh] Fine, but if they did kill Vic-
  • Batwoman: Then we'll chain them to a chair and make them smoke the whole lot of whatever they gave to Vic. Sure. Whatever. But we do this right first, okay?
