“Barnabas, I don’t believe one word of that woman’s story.”
"Well, I’m not sure that I do either."
"It’s too pat. Too sentimental."
“Nevertheless, we must go through with this. We must use that girl for the life force. We have no other choice, whether we want to or not.”
Julia thinks Leona Eltridge is lying. Barnabas agrees (*wow), but he sees no other alternative (*it beats snatching some inspecting woman off the street). Adam brings Leona to the laboratory (*where did you get the nightie, Leona?). She reiterates that she understand the risks. Adam yells at everyone to stop wasting time and smiles at his bride. Barnabas again reminds him that Eve will be a child when she comes alive, without knowledge or experience, and will need to be educated. Does Adam really think he is capable of all that? No problem, says Adam who was reading the classics by the age of three months. He will take care of her. No one else. She will be his.
"Soon you will live. And you will be mine!"
*Definitely a Barnabas-like statement. lol
