You think the dead really care about our lives?
Yeah, I think they do. I think they forgive us our sins. I even think it's easy for them.
Griff said you had a dream about flying.
Yeah. I got so high, Einar, I could see where the blue turns black. From up there, you could see all there is. And it looked like there was a reason for everything.
I uh... God, Jean. I don't know what happened. It's like a red mist or... something comes over me and I... but I feel like you backed me up in a corner and I... you do that and, uh... I hate it when I'm like that. I'm sorry. Can you forgive me? [she remains silent and he flips the table over] What? [storms out the door] F***!
You promised. If it happened again... you promised.
[talking to his son's grave] Hello, Griffin. Well, it says here you might've already won $15 million. Probably ought to send it in for you, though. Probably the same damn odds as losing a child early. you got that done. You should know your wife came back. You could have steered her someplace else. Just 'cause you're dead doesn't mean you can't be helpful. See you tomorrow, boy. [pause] Kid sure looks a whole lot like you, though. Top to bottom.
I killed him, Einar. Is that what you wanna hear? It wasn't the change in our pockets, or the weak ass coffee, or the rain. It was me. I fell asleep and I flipped the car six times. I killed Griffin. He had no argument from me. You think it's something I forget. You think that I'm not sick with it, that I hate my life? But I tried to keep living, and you haven't. Is that why you hate me so much? You know, you act like I killed you when Griffin died.
You guys are gay, right?
Einar Gilkyson, Mitch Bradley:
[both burst out laughing]
Well now, I'd think after almost 40 years working together, one of us would notice, don't you Mitch?
Well Einar, I always thought you had really lovely hands.
You did? You never told me that.
I mean it's cool. Everybody needs love.
You got that part right, little girl.
