AN OLD FRIEND – The masks are all over the city. You are a sensation Ms. Kyle. An absolute sensation.
SELINA – She’s a sensation.
AN OLD FRIEND – But she’s your creation darling.
SELINA – But it’s not me. It’s not Selina.
AN OLD FRIEND – It’s a part of you.
SELINA – She’s who I want to be. Who I wish I could be.
AN OLD FRIEND – But without you there is no her.
SELINA – Reverse that.
AN OLD FRIEND – She’s a gift Selina. A gift from you to Gotham. They love her. She’s a gal who takes what she wants. Plays by her own rules. A real ruthless dame. Gotham’s women are inspired. Galvanized.
SELINA – But it’s not enough. I want everything.
AN OLD FRIEND – Excuse me?
SELINA – I lied, I cheated, I stole because I had to…to eat. Over time I got real good at it. Now I don’t do it because I have to–my cupboards are overflowing, there is a wine cellar below my feet–I do it to see how good I am. If something exists somewhere I can take it from there. No matter where it is or who or what is guarding it. I will get it.
AN OLD FRIED – But can you get everything?
SELINA – Eternal life. Don’t know if I can go get that. But if forever is something then it has to exist somewhere.
AN OLD FRIEND – Perhaps we are within forever. All around us.
SELINA – So it’s got the upper hand?
AN OLD FRIEND – Not really. Remember, the masks are all over Gotham. You are definitely leaving a mark. Perhaps one that will last forever.
SELINA – The masks are everywhere now. All over the city now. But they won’t be forever.
AN OLD FRIEND – Well, that depends on how much you believe in her.
