Through a Glass, Darkly: MacLeod discovers that an old friend is suffering from amnesia. An interesting look at the double-edged sword that is memory.
|[At Shakespeare & Company.]
Methos: No, I got distracted. I found some texts on first-century Chinese apothecary. Couldn't put them down.
|Duncan: Well, at this rate
it'll take you 10 years to put these all away.
Methos: You say that like it's a bad thing.
|Methos: You and this guy
Cochrane had quite some history.
Duncan: Yeah, I know.
Methos: Does he remember any of this?
|Duncan: He remembers Picardie, when we went to see Bonny Prince Charlie, but then he doesn't. His memories are all different. It was him that first [?] me into going after Charlie. The memories he's getting back are all wrong.|
|Methos: It's a human trait, remembering things they way we wish they'd been. We rewrite history so that we can live with it. You ask the Russians. Or come to that, ask the Americans or the British|
|Duncan: Or the Scots.
Turning a loser into a bonny prince because I needed a hero.
Methos: It doesn't matter what he was really like. Surely it's the legend that really matters.
|Duncan: Right now, the
truth is what matters.
Methos: Maybe Cochrane can't face the truth.
Duncan: You found something else?
|Methos: Cochrane left Paris on Friday with a kid named Andrew Donnelly. His Watcher didn't go with him because his sister was getting married. Figured he'd pick him up on Sunday when they got back. [at Duncan's look] What do you expect? The Watchers are the Immortal FBI? We have lives to live, okay?|
|Duncan: Who's Andrew
Methos: His student, probably. Cochrane met him in Aberdeen a couple years ago. He has no parents; he was on the streets. Told him about his immortality, recruited him to his cause.
|Duncan: Where is he now?
Methos: That is the $64,000 question.
|Duncan: Two weeks ago he
had a wife, a house, a family. Now he's a fugitive. He's got nothing.
Methos: He's alive.
Duncan: I still can't believe he'd kill his own student.
Methos: Come on, MacLeod. It's not the first time this happened.
Duncan: Well, maybe I should have left him alone. Maybe he was better off not knowing. I mean, it's a terrible thing to have to live with.
Methos: We all have things in our past we wish we hadn't done. I know I do.
|Duncan: So if you had the
chance to forget everything and live life over again, would you?
Methos: No, I wouldn't. Who'd remember Alexa then?
