  • Tedd's house

First Mention or Appearance OfEdit


Mr. VerresNow before we include the others, I just want to ask you a few questions one-on-one. Now, I don't want you to worry; I consider you to be the victim here, and I want to help you.
EllenMe the victim? Not really... I mean, yeah, Tedd turned me into a girl, but nobody forced me to go to that place and touch the diamond...
Mr. VerresEllen... I know you remember all of those things, but you didn't do any of them. You inherited those memories from Elliot, but that's all. You didn't exist prior to his touching the diamond, so you can see how you couldn't have had a hand in your own creation.
Mr. Verres(off panel) Everything you remember is Elliot's past, not your own. You are a new person, one who is unfortunately burdened with the memories of another.
Mr. Verres(off panel) It is very, very important for you to accept that you're not who you remember being, and that everyone else won't see you as that person either.
Tears appear in Ellen's eyes.
Mr. VerresElliot, your duplicate's a crybaby.
Ellen(off panel) *SOB*
