Emily: You're going to fall in love. I promise. I bet you anything. Dee: Is that so? Emily: Yup. Dee: I really don't think I will. It looks a lot like I'm the only one of my kind. And even if I wasn't... Emily: Are you sure you're it? Dee: I've never found anyone else. Emily: Have you looked? Dee: Yes. Emily: Who were you looking for? Other Deaths, or... concepts, or... Dee: Uh... concepts. There aren't any other Deaths. I know that much. If there were, they'd have to be horrendous slackers. Emily: Hah! Yeah... It's strange for your to be the only one, though. Dee: Is it? How so? Emily: Why only Death? What about Life? If you exist, there must be a Life around somewhere. At the very least! Surely? Dee: Yeah, I don't know. As I say, I've never found anyone else. I don't think Life would be very hard to find. And you can't find a pattern in only one data point, Em. Emily: Oh. Dee: Besides, I can't imagine Life would like me very much. Emily: You can't imagine anyone liking you, though.
