Candice: You free now then?

Justin: Just about.

Candice: Great. Madam’s looking for a bouncer at the dungeon. You interested?

Justin: Do you think she’d hire me, me being a client and all?

Candice: I don’t see why not. You might have to stop being a client though.

Justin frowns.

Candice: (smiles) I can take care of you privately if you like.

Deborah and Tilden

 

Tilden: Mommy?

Deborah: Yes, Tilden?

Tilden: Why do you say “life goes on”?

Deborah: Well, honey, sometimes life is difficult. But it doesn’t stop for anybody.

Tilden: You mean except dead people?

Deborah: Right. Except for dead people.

Tilden: Why doesn’t life go on for dead people?

Deborah: Because they’re dead.

Tilden: But you said Gramma will live in your heart forever.

Deborah: That’s true. I did say that.

Tilden: So life goes on for Gramma too?

Deborah: Only in spirit.

Tilden: (thinks for a few minutes) Can Gramma’s spirit buy me a birthday present?

Deborah: (puts her arm around him) No, honey.

Shannon: C’mon!

Terry: Nope, it’s a surprise.

Terry: Nope.

Shannon: It must be a lot if we’ve gotta go all the way to the city.

Terry: Yep.

Terry: Maybe.

Shannon: A vacation?

Terry: Maybe.

Shannon: A new house?

Terry: Nah.

Shannon: Oh c’mon, Ter. How much did you win?

Terry: Okay, fine. After I cash in my ticket, I’m getting a flight to visit a girl in London.

Shannon: A … girl?

Terry: (smiles) Yeah.

Shannon: Is she … a girlfriend?

Terry: I hope so.

Terry: Where are you going?
