MILDRED HAYES: “Hey baby. (Chuckling) Yup, still no arrests. How come, I wonder? Because there ain’t no God, the whole world’s empty and it doesn’t matter what we do to each other? I hope not. How come you came up here outta nowhere looking so pretty? You ain’t trying to make me believe in reincarnation or something, are you? ‘Cause you’re pretty, but you ain’t her. She got killed...and now she’s dead forever. I do thank you for coming though. If I had some food I’d give it to you. All I got is some Doritos and they might kill you. They’re kind of pointy. Then where would we be?”
