D: I’m fed up with this place. I’m tired and alone.
O: So you’re just going to forget to acknowledge my presence?
D: I can’t believe you put up with me.
O: Well, it does get difficult sometimes. Come on, you don’t honestly feel like a crotchety old hermit. You’re 22 years old.

O: But if you really mean that, there’s nothing I can do.
D: It’s my life and my decision.
O: So you won’t mind if I jump off a bridge.

O: Is this the classic Dickensian change of heart, Mr. Scrooge?
D: No, I just don’t want you to hurt yourself. Fuck everyone else.
