Dee: Why would I be a skeleton? Emily: I think most people would expect that. Aren't you supposed to take the form people believe in? Dee: I thought so, but... Damn! There goes that theory... Emily: You're not hideous, though. Not at all. Why did you think...? Dee: Well, working from the old theory, I figured people wouldn't imagine me to be anything but unpleasant. So I assumed I was ugly. Are... are you sure I'm not? Emily: Yes. I mean, you're not at all beautiful, but... To tell the truth you look a little like Voldemort. But with a nose. Dee: Who's...? Emily: He's the bad guy from a series of books called Harry Potter. Dee: The bad guy. Hmm. Emily: You only look a bit like him. Tall, bald, cloaked... Pale... The similarities end there.
