Amelia is determined to rebuild her life in Vienna and decides that in doing so, she must distance herself from Max. In a farewell meeting, she voices her concerns and ultimately cuts ties with him, which comes as a shock to the doctor.
- Well you tried to help us.
I wanted to ask you something.
- Before you say anything, I need to make a little speech.
You and I have had a strange beginning.
Most people when they meet,
they stand behind a veil of politeness.
They dance around it or they're never saying what they mean.
You and I have never done that,
just force of circumstance.
So, I hope you'll forgive me for being blunt.
But then blunt is the only language we've ever spoken,
My life has been more settled of late.
- I'm glad to hear it.
- I was grateful to have the opportunity
to work with you on your case.
But I think that's where our acquaintance should end.
I don't think we should see each other again.
- If I've offended you in some way.
- Oh, Max.
I am trying to rebuild my life here in Vienna.
Don't you see?
After my illness and the article in the paper,
the scandal that surrounded it.
- I didn't intend.
- You and I have only ever spoken the truth.
Good luck with your engagement.
