Giles: “Have you always been alone? Did you ever have someone? Do you know what happened to you? Do you? Because I don’t. I don’t know what happened to me...I don’t know. I look in the mirror and the only thing that I recognize are these eyes...in this old man’s face... You know sometimes I think I was either born too early or too late for my life. Maybe we are both just relics.
