[Glass breaks]
Cristian: "Hello? Is anyone here? Natalie? What happened, Natalie? I just saw the ambulance leave. Where's all this glass from?"
Natalie: "It was horrible, Cristian. Ben was lying over there and he wasn't moving, he wouldn't wake up. And Jessica -- she was yelling at me. They -- they took him off to the hospital."
Cristian: "Did Ben fall? Is that what happened?"
Natalie: "I don't know."
Cristian: "Didn't you see it?"
Natalie: "I don't remember anything."
Cristian: "Natalie, what do you mean.. you don't remember?"
Natalie: "Jessica thinks that I pushed him."
Cristian: "{What? But you didn't, did you? I mean, you couldn't-"
Natalie: "I don't know. I don't know. One minute I was sleeping, and the next thing I know I was in Viki and Ben's room and I was looking out the window.. and I saw Ben lying there. God, Cristian, what am I going to do?"
Cristian: "Well, first thing we're going to do is we're going to get you away from all of this glass. You don't want to be getting all cut up Okay?"
Natalie: "Okay."
Cristian: "Come on, everything's going to be okay."
Natalie: "What are you doing?"
Cristian: "I'm going to take you up to your room so you can get some rest. Come on."

Cristian: "Hey, everything's going to be okay, Nat."
Natalie: "What if it isn't? I mean, what if Jessica was right? What if I did push Ben out that window?"
Cristian: "It doesn't make any sense. You can't believe that. I don't."
Natalie: "I don't want to, but-"
Cristian: "Look, just try thinking. Try thinking hard and just tell me everything that you can remember."
Natalie: "Okay. I remember that stuff with Jen and how she accused me of running away from her and pushing her into the garden shed, which I didn't do - or at least I don't remember doing it."
Cristian: "Right. I know about that. Forget that. What happened next?"
Natalie: "I came up here."
Cristian: "And I followed you and we talked about D.I.D. And the multiple personality thing and that you were spooked."
Natalie: "Yeah."
Cristian: "And you thought maybe you might have it."
Natalie: "And then Jen called, and I told her - I told you to go to her."
Cristian: "And what happened next?"
Natalie: "Well, I had my laptop out and I was writing in my journal. I wrote some stuff about you and how much you'd helped. And I remember feeling really tired, so I decided to lay down and rest."
Cristian: "So you fell asleep."
Natalie: "I don't know. I mean, I remember feeling lightheaded. So I guess I must have, but - then there was all this broken glass and the shouting, and I was in Ben and Viki's room. And I remember walking over to the window, and it was broken, and I looked out and I saw Ben lying down there. I did it, Cristian. I did it."
Cristian: "Natalie-"
Natalie: "I mean, I must have blocked it."
Cristian: "Natalie, that's ridiculous. How could you have pushed Ben through that window? You know, even if you could physically, what possible reason would you have to do that?"
[Cristian looks at Natalie's online journal.]
Natalie: "I don't know. What is it? What are you looking at? Oh, no. Oh, no."

Natalie: "I did not write that."
Cristian: "Are you sure?"
Natalie: "Positive. At least I don't remember writing it. I mean, I remember this first stuff about you, but not any of that other stuff."
Cristian: "Okay, then maybe somebody else wrote it, maybe while you were asleep?"
Natalie: "No! Don't you see? It means I did it. It explains everything, all these memory lapses and how I don't remember anything, like the red sweat suit being in the trunk and buying all those clothes from the Silver Moon boutique, the stuff with Jen. Now this? I must have some split personality thing, just like Viki."
Cristian: "Natalie, but you said yourself it wasn't hereditary, that - that it had to be, you know, from a really bad childhood or something."
Natalie: "Yeah, well, being raised by Roxy qualifies, believe me."
Cristian: "I don't see how. I mean, I thought it had to do with sexual abuse or.."
Natalie: "That's what Rae said, but, I mean, this is the only explanation. I have this other person running around in my head and taking over my body. Just -- she's the one who wrote this. She's the one who pushed Ben out the window!"

Natalie: "That's the only explanation I have - D.I.D. I have multiple personalities, just like Viki."
Cristian: "No, you don't. I don't believe that."
Natalie: "No, that's the only thing that explains it - you know, why I keep forgetting all these things, why I tried to push Ben out the window."
Cristian: "Natalie, you did not push Ben through that window."
Natalie: "Oh, really? Well, no one else could have done it. What about Jessica? She said she saw me standing there at the window after Ben fell. What, are you saying she lied?"
Cristian: "No, I'm not saying that. Look, I'm just saying that there's got to be some other kind of explanation."
Natalie: "No. Look. Look at this journal entry that I wrote - or somebody wrote. 'I hate them. I wish they were out of my life.' And all this other stuff I've done - pushing Jen and the red sweat suit thing and buying that stuff from the boutique. Whoever this Natalie is, she's a killer. Oh, God, I got to get out of here."
[She tries to leave.]
Cristian: "Natalie, where are you going?"
[Natalie goes to the door, and Bo is standing there.]
Bo: Hello, Natalie.
