Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • Josh Levinson: Quick, what's the world's most rapidly evaporating resource? Oil? Fresh air? Not even close. When's the last time you were truly alone? When you didn't think to yourself "somebody's watching me." A Man can wander for eternity these days before he can find a place to be himself, let go, howl at the moon. How'd we let this happen to us? Why do we insist on looking when every impulse tells us to look away? Maybe its because we all have something to hide- that thing we buried down deep, deep back in the darkness with everything we have. We're secretly hoping to see that the monster inside each of us is inside us all. There it is, look hard enough, you'll see. We will be seen.



  • Josh Levinson: Just when I start to think that there's hope, like real hope for me to be just like everybody else, I wake up and I'm in hell!
  • Sally Malik: (interrupting) I'm in hell! I died and now I'm actually in Hell!
  • Aidan Waite: (to Sally) What happened to you?
  • Josh Levinson: Aidan and I were just talking about how I am in hell but, whatever, let's... talk about you.
