  • Bette Kane: [muffled laughter: 2 instances, footsteps: 2 instances, door opens, laughter stops] Oh... Hey, Tot. What's going on?
  • Tot Rodor: What does it look like I'm doing? I'm making a pseudoderm mask for Renee...
  • Bette Kane: Pseudo-whats-it?
  • Kate Kane: Pseudoderm. It's what Renee's mask is made of. It's a synthetic skin of Tot's design.
  • Bette Kane: Oh, wow... Neat. I just thought Renee had a weird skin deformity that let her hide her features and shed them like a snake.
  • Tot Rodor: Is she being serious?
  • Kate Kane: I think so... Renee around?
  • Tot Rodor: You just missed her. She'll be back soon enough. Pull up a chair if you want to wait.
  • Kate Kane: [clamber, chair scraping floor, clamber] So, this mask... You're cutting features in.
  • Tot Rodor: Yes. I am. Renee wants to go undercover tonight and her face carving skills are rather lackluster.
  • Bette Kane: That face... That's Vesper Fairchild's face, isn't it?
  • Tot Rodor: It is.
  • Kate Kane: Why is Renee disguising herself as Vesper Fairchild?
  • Tot Rodor: To get into the Tobacconists' Club meeting tonight.
  • Kate Kane: Does she need back up?
  • Renee Montoya: [door opens, paper bag crinkling] I don't think Tot has the time to make the molds for your head, Kate. [paper bag crinkling] Your cigs.
  • Tot Rodor: [paper bag crinkling] Ah... Thanks. [plastic wrapping crinkling] Where's my damn lighter? [limping footsteps]
  • Kate Kane: No need to make a mold. I can go as Kate Kane.
  • Renee Montoya: [scoff] That would be very brave and bold of you, but I don't think they'll let you in just because you're rich.
  • Kate Kane: [chuckle] Ah, but they wouldn't. They'd let me in because I'm a member. Bette, too.
  • Bette Kane: Yeah, see? Look at the fancy little card they gave me!
  • Renee Montoya: Heh... Cute but... When did you become members?
  • Bette Kane: Uh... Day before yesterday.
  • Renee Montoya: Why?
  • Kate Kane: I spoke to Crispus. He told me that some of the stuff recovered from that Sons' bust got you digging up your personal investigation again...
  • Renee Montoya: What investigation?
  • Kate Kane: [scoff] Don't insult my intelligence... We used to date. I know when you can't let things go. You're still investigating Vic's murder.
  • Renee Montoya: Vic wasn't-
  • Kate Kane: Don't deny it, Ren. I know you... You won't let this go until you find out the truth so let me help you. Let us help you.
  • Renee Montoya: Us?
  • Bette Kane: I think she means me.
  • Renee Montoya: What are you going to do?
  • Bette Kane: Whatever I need to do.
  • Kate Kane: She's sorta my sidekick now.
  • Renee Montoya: What? Since when?
  • Bette Kane: The day before yesterday.
  • Renee Montoya: Sounds like a busy day...
  • Bette Kane: Oh, it was! After we broke up that CRIME and Wayward Sons' meeting, I couldn't really sleep so Kate dragged me along to go join the Club.
  • Renee Montoya: Of all the young herophiles in Gotham, you picked this one?
  • Kate Kane: Hey, she's my cousin... and she's athletic, knows her way around the city and the gangs' climate, and she knows how to fight.
  • Renee Montoya: Well, I guess I can't complain... Those are three things she has over Tot.
  • Tot Rodor: [muffled:] I heard that! Come on, you damn lighter... Where the hell did I put you? [distant clatter]
  • Renee Montoya: [chuckle] Fine... You know your way around a computer?
  • Bette Kane: [scoff] I have an e-mail:
  • Renee Montoya: Uh... I'll take that as a "no". So... What good is she while you're in the field and she's in the chair? Computers are a must in the Network.
  • Kate Kane: She's not that kind of sidekick.
  • Renee Montoya: Wait... No... You got her some tights?!
  • Bette Kane: They call me Flamebird.
  • Renee Montoya: Not much of a secret identity. That's literally written on your jacket...
  • Kate Kane: [scoff, footsteps] Bette... I told you to take that off already... [fabric tearing]
  • Bette Kane: Hey!
  • Kate Kane: I suggested Hawkfire, but she really wanted Flamebird. She identifies with it.
  • Tot Rodor: [inhaling smoke, exhaling smoke, limping footsteps] I like it. It's poetic... like a phoenix reborn from its ashes, Bette is leaving her criminal ways behind and turning over a new leaf. [slow clamber, inhaling smoke, exhaling smoke]
  • Renee Montoya: [scoff, chuckle] Yeah... See? Tot liking it just shows you how lame it is.
  • Kate Kane: [chuckle] Batwoman and Hawkfire would sound better, but... I don't know. Batwoman and Flamebird doesn't sound bad. Plus, it's almost guaranteed to get her an invitation to join Babs' crew. Babs can't let there be a 'bird' in this city not affiliated with her.
  • Bette Kane: So, are we going undercover tonight or what?
  • Renee Montoya: [sigh] Sure, you can tag along. That'll be fine. Who knows... an extra pair or two of eyes might turn up something.
  • Bette Kane: Oh, yeah! Kate... I need a new dress... Can we go shopping? Puh-lease!
