The Beast's relationship with his patient Carly has some heartwarming moments, such as when she quickly accepts his appearance after becoming able to see. Also, a signed picture of Carly is seen on the Beast's desk in a later episode, suggesting that the two of them kept in touch even after finding it too dangerous for them to have a romantic relationship.
Jean: It's Carly, isn't it?
Beast: Why did this happen to me? Why couldn't I be normal? It's not fair.
Jean: We must think of how our gifts can help the world.
Beast: Gifts? I can't be close around any human. I can't take the risk of endangering them. My parents, by brothers and sisters, and now — now the woman I love.
Jean: Hank, I had no idea she meant this much to you.
Beast: It was so much easier when I was consumed by my work. I could pretend that people thought of me didn't matter.
Jean: How does she feel about you?
Beast: I think...that she cares about me.
Jean: Hank, that's wonderful!
Beast: No! I can't allow her to be with me! It's too dangerous.
Jean: You have to let her decide to take that risk. Talk to her, Hank. Give her that chance.
