“[Alex is shooting her video entry for the school contest with her grandmother Abigail and Robyn]

Abigail: Hello. We're here on a gorgeous day in Danielle Atron Park. It's a beautiful green park, a place to play, a place to make friends... a place to relax. Lovely, isn't it?

Robyn: Lovely? I see killer bees. I see pollen. And ragweed. I see the hot, toxic lethal sun, boring through the hole in the ozone, slowly killing us. Roasting, like a pig on a spit. And these people are supposedly having fun?

Abigail: What a strange, yet intriguing young girl you are.”
