Mad Sweeney: Your heart's not beating for this life anymore, dead wife. This life is done.

Laura: Only felt my heart beat one time since I died. When I kissed Shadow.

Mad Sweeney: That doesn't obligate him to feel shit. You're so worried about being alive, but to him you're already dead. Wait, you kissed him?

Laura: Yeah I just said I kissed him.

Mad Sweeney: Put your tongue in his mouth?

Laura: Just the tip.

Mad Sweeney: Was it cold and dry?

Laura: Probably.

Mad Sweeney: Did it taste like cigarettes and vomit?

Laura: I have been smoking... Perhaps I misjudged the kiss. Probably should've had some gum or a mint.”
