"I can’t go through with it! I can’t tell them Carolyn is dead! If I was to tell them about the experiment, Adam, everything Julia and I have done… if the truth starts to come out, where will it end? Where? No! I can’t think about that. The family has to know that Carolyn is dead! And how she died! I have to tell them, no matter what happens to me! No matter what happens, I must tell them!"

Carolyn has that “Ima hump a monster” gleam in her eye.
