Dee (sitting up): I mean, maybe the guy who said that just meant that everybody dies. So I destroy things as a matter of course, but not intentionally.
Emily: Oh. I'm pretty sure anyone who describes you as a destroyer of anything is someone who thinks you're a nasty guy who likes killing people intentionally.
Dee: Well, maybe. Do you know what the context of the quote was?
Emily: Um... here we go, he was actually talking about the atomic bomb.
Dee: Ugh, that'd be right. What are you doing, anyway? What are you looking up?
Emily: Oh, just quotes about stuff.
Dee: About me?
Emily: Not specifically, but now I am. Here we go, Wikiquote. Quotes about Death. ...
"Death, so called, is a thing which makes men weep
