Constance: I can see why Maura likes you. You’re direct. It’s kind of refreshing.
Jane: I’m protective. Maura’s my best friend.
Constance: I sense that there’s something you’d like to say to me.
Jane: Yeah. There is. I don’t like seeing my best friend hurt.
Constance: You think I hurt her?
Jane: Not staying with her, canceling dinner, “forgetting” to put her on the list of your installation? Yeah, I think that hurts her.
Constance: She’s the chief medical examiner. She has her own life. You’re both out there working an important case, it’s all over the news. I don’t want to be in her way. She must know how proud I am of her, how much I love her.
Jane: Not really the signals you’re sending. It seems to me like you were too busy while she was growing up, and now you’re blaming her for being too busy -
Constance: I was - I was never any good at it.
Jane: At what?
Constance: Being a mother. I feel like I just…I missed so much.
Jane: Why don’t you just tell her that?
Constance: May I join you?
Maura: Mother, what a lovely surprise.
Maura: I thought you were staying, I prepared the guest house for you.
