Crystal and Vince from Crystal's Magic:
"Vince and I have been friends for a long, long time."
"Yep, although she used to drive me nuts. Vince, do this, Vince do that."
"When did I ever say that?"
"When we played house."
"Really? I don't remember that."
"Trust me, Crystal, ya did. It was humiliating."
"Then why did you play with me?"
"I don't know. Anyhow, you're right, we've always been friends."
"Well, not always."
"You're gonna bring that up?"
"You're right, I shouldn't."
"You might as well now!"
"Sorry, Vince. But yeah, after your brother died, you kinda withdrew."
"Not just from you."
"I know. From everyone. Including God."
"How can you believe in him when he allows such horrible things to happen to good people?"
"Your brother's in a better place now."
"Better place? There's no such thing as Heaven, Crystal. We only have one life to live and then it's done. Game over. There are no do overs."
"Of course there's a Heaven!"
"Wonderful, Crystal. I knew you couldn't do it."
"Not bring up God and try to shove your religious crude on me."
"Vince, I haven't asked you to come with me to church in years. How is that shoving my religious crude on you?"
"Look, if I bake some brownies for you, will that make you happy?"
"I guess so."
"You know…I do like to think that he isn't in pain."
"One day you will see him again."
"Yeah, ok. I'm ready for brownies now."
