IZZY: Just don't be talked into something you don't want to do.
MAX: I don't want to loose her, that's what I don't want.
IZZY: The trouble is, even if she does see your point of view…
IZZY: She might have taken steps before hand.
MAX: What steps?
IZZY: Max, it's not hard for a woman to accidentally find herself pregnant. It does happen all the time.
MAX: No, Steph wouldn't do that
IZZY: Of course not. Sorry. You guys will work it out, you always do.

MAX: I want us to be equals.
STEPH: I know that.
MAX: Look, your opinion is just as valid as mine Steph… about anything, everything, we're equals.

MAX: Absolutely. I mean who knows what the future may hold…accidents happen.
MAX: Look I don't mean on purpose or anything but you know… you've got to be prepared for anything, everything
STEPH: Are you implying that I'd fall pregnant deliberately to try and trick you?
MAX: Steph, I just want to know deep down, once and for all what you're feeling. What's in your heart.
STEPH: Are you sure you really want to know?
MAX: Tell me honestly, unadulterated.
STEPH: Well I have been thinking about this not surprisingly. Max, I can't see my future without kids of my own, even if it means losing you.
