Parker: That must be Brother Vespus.
Jarod: And these…must be the scrolls.

Brother Rinaldus: Aye. Our scrolls. We knew you could find what we never able to.
Parker: You must be the one that killed Ocee and Brother Menenicus.
Jarod: And you’re the one who tried to kill my mother.
Brother Rinaldus: Acts that are done for God’s good works shall always remain acts of piety. And now, give me those scrolls.

Parker: Daddy?!
Mr. Parker: Sure as hell not Santa Claus. Brother Rinaldus has been my faithful servant for years. But God does not fogive acts of agrresion against one’s mother. Neither do I, right, Angel?
Raines: Now I can radio Adama we have the scrolls…and Jarod.
Mr. Parker: Long live the Centre.

[Island of the Haunted]

How much do you hate Mr. Parker at this moment?
But I love that worried look Miss Parker sends at Jarod.
You can see how much sorry she is…
I probably started to worship her, here.

…Jarod Looking for the Serpent Selection…

Jarod: Are you all right?
Parker: I’ve been better. Ocee!
Jarod: Come on.

[Island of the Haunted]

Ok, this might sound crazy, but do you realize that Miss Parker *actually* lets Jarod lift her up from the ground?!
How cool that is?!
And as I mentioned many times before, Parker is always pleased to let Jarod ‘touch’ her during this movie.
We’re very far from the Keys conversation
‘Let me help you’
‘Thanks for the offer but I can take care of myself’
Here, Jarod doesn’t even need to tell her ‘let me help you’, it’s implicit. He just has to go and grab her by her arm.

Jarod: Ocee! Ocee, did Menenicus do this?
Ocee: No. Destiny. Just curse of scrolls.

Jarod: Tell me something, ‘Brother’. Why didn’t you leave the isle? Too busy tryin’ to kill my mother? Too busy tryin’ to keep us from the truth?
Brother Menenicus: In 700 years there has always been a Vespasian brother on this isle protecting the scrolls. I wasn’t going to be the one to leave them unguarded. As for your mother, I know not of what you speak.
Jarod: Don’t you lie to me!
Brother Menenicus: This isn’t about lies. And since you won’t give me the pouch, you can return to hell with it!

Parker: So what does the key fit?
Jarod: Under the alter of every Catholic Church there’s a secret chamber that hides the relics of that church’s patron saint.

Jarod: Here goes nothing.
Parker: Angel’s leather pouch.
Brother Menenicus: I’ll take that.
Jarod: Brother Menenicus.
Brother Menenicus: Give me the pouch.

[Island of the Haunted]

Another - lovely - smile - for Jarod.
How beautiful she is when she does that.

You know what I love most about these 15 seconds?
The fact that for the first time Miss Parker is holding a gun and Jarod is AT HER SIDE, not at the *other* side of the weapon.
She’s protecting both of them like a lioness.

beerok23:

Parker: “While she told me the location of the scrolls, she holds the key to finding them still”. It’s unfinished.
Jarod: He must have been interrupted while he wrote this. And hid it in this Bible so it wouldn’t fall into the wrong hands.
Parker: My great-grandfather must have discovered that his little girl had confessed to Father Theo and killed him trying to find the scrolls. She tried to save her father from his own demons knowing it would cost her her life.
Jarod: Father Theo writes, “She holds the key to finding the scrolls still.” She holds the key…Not her.

[Island of the Haunted]

A few things here.
1. I love the sound of Miss Parker’s voice when she says that thing about little Angel trying to save her father. She’s thinking about herself, you can see it in her eyes. She’s wondering if it was worth it to sacrifice oneself to try and save such a man. Exactly what happens to her all the time with her ‘daddy’.
2. I like the fact that Jarod doesn’t make her notice this. He could have said something, like he did at P-47, he could have quipped a sarcastic Jarodism at her, but he doesn’t, and I appreciate it so much.
3. Again, they look so good, close to each other. It’s a pity they don’t share one of those glances here. But I guess that if they had, maybe there would have been a kiss. Which wasn’t on script.
Uh…Pain.
