* In ''Derailed'', Charles meets Lucinda, who tells her story of losing a daughter, complete with a photograph of her. They embark on an affair only for a man to beat them both and rape Lucinda. Afraid of telling the truth which will expose them, they are soon involved in a wild adventure that culminates in the man's death and then paying ex-con Winston $100,000 of embezzled money to cover it up. With Lucinda leaving to get her life together, Charles is getting back on track himself. He's at a store shopping for his daughter's birthday and then freezes in place when he sees the rows of picture frames...all of which show the same photo of Lucinda's "daughter." He instantly realizes the whole thing was a huge con and sets about tracking Lucinda, who's pulling the same scam on another man.
** The movie version varies it as Charles goes to Lucinda's house, only to find it was rented. The relator gives him a brochure, which features Lucinda's "daughter" on it. Later, when Charles confronts Lucinda about to get with her newest mark, he convinces the man he's telling the truth by showing the brochure picture.
