Anna-Kat: (gasps) mama, take off your coat before it kills you. (Throws Katie’s coat and gets scared and shy about coats)

Katie: what is she talking about?

Oliver: it’s unrelated to anything happened at night. I can tell you that much.

Taylor: I’ll take her to bed.

Katie: honey go upstairs to do your finger exercises. Mama will be up in a few minutes to tuck you in.

Greg: (about Anna-Kat) now that she’s afraid of coats, Wells and vanigans with no cause. We’ll be just fine without Dr Ellie next year.
