Emily: Why? Dee: Because... because... Well I don't know exactly, but it seems like you should. Emily: Well, talking to you fills my social quota, as far as I'm concerned. Without you around I wouldn't talk to anyone. Dee: I hardly count. Emily: Why not? You have a personality. You're at least interesting. You're human enough, I guess... Dee: Human enough? Emily: Well, what's so special about humans anyway! You're human shaped.
