" They hug and after a while they kiss for 26 seconds and then they stop and Kirsten says " I'm sorry. I'll go. I'm sorry. "
After Kirsten wakes up crying, she goes and hugs Cameron. Cameron, who had manipulated the memory of Kirsten's mom to get Kirsten out of the stitch, tells Kirsten what he did. Kirsten slaps Cameron, and faints. At the end of episode 1 of season 3, Cameron tells Kirsten that Nina broke up with him. Kirsten asks Cameron how long he would have waited for her in the stitch, and without hesitating he replies forever. They then share a kiss, and start a relationship.
Kirsten: "Is this what love is? Intense connection and then heartbreaking loss?"
Cameron: "You're ok with co-workers dating?"
Kirsten: "Yeah. But I'm not ok with Linus wearing my sweatshirt."
Cameron: "Hey. What's going on?"
Kirsten: "I'm sorry, I... I feel like... I feel lost. I feel... trapped, I don't know."
Kirsten: "God, I'm sorry. I'm just barging in. Is Nina here? Is somebody here?"
Cameron: "No, no! It's fine, it's fine. Hey, Kirsten."
Kirsten: "I just really screwed things up, didn't I?"
Cameron: "No, come here. Look, okay, Kirsten, you've had a few setbacks, okay, but... you're just being hard on yourself. You're smart, okay? You're going to figure this out."
Kirsten: "I don't know that I want to anymore."
Cameron: "Okay... Look at me, look at me. What do you want?"
Kirsten: "I want to be with my mother. I want the childhood that I never had."
Cameron: "They say you can't go home again."
Kirsten: "I know. I don't even remember ever being home in the first place, ever. Except here, with you. Here feels like home."
