He can't believe his eyes, because the next day, Ruby becomes a real person, and they begin to have a beautiful relationship together. If the relationship isn't perfect, all Calvin has to do is simply type the words on the page and Ruby's actions change to what he needs. Written by

In their way to Big Sur, when they stop a while near the sea and leave the car, Ruby is carrying a purse. Immediately later, when they are playing "who kills the other first" you can see no purse at all. See more
What's your dog's name?
Uh, Scotty. I named him for F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Isn't that disrespectful?
Naming your dog after him? It's a little disrespectful. Think about it. You're a novelist. You think this guy's the greatest. So you name your dog after him to cut him down to size. This way, you can put him on a leash... and yell "Bad Scotty" and feel all superior because you pee inside. Kill your idols, man. I'm all for it.
