    Anna Ran : [incredulous]  The cookbook?

  • Anna Ran : Mr. Heep is here. He has a friend. She's beautiful. She's not feeling too well...

    [makes a drinking motion] 

    Anna Ran : So she's lying down in my room.

    Vick : Why is she here? Why isn't she at his place?

    Anna Ran : Well, she got sick in the stairwell downstairs. She is wearing no clothes under his shirt. Blim-blam. Mr. Heep is a player.

  • Vick : Mr. Heep, I KNOW I sent in that form. I gave it to you on the stairs... My sister's all angry at me now.

    Cleveland Heep : Well, i'll check again... By the way, this is my friend, Story.

    Vick : ...hi

    Story : [Looks up, then looks down shyly] 

    Cleveland Heep : [watches out of the corner of his eye]  Uhh, yep, you were right, here it is.

    Vick : ...Great.

    Cleveland Heep : You alright? You look a little...

    Vick : I'm feeling a little funny, it's nothing.

    Cleveland Heep : [looks at Story]  Is it a pins-and-needles kind of feeling?

    Vick : Kind of... Yeah.

    Cleveland Heep : Maybe you should go lie down.

    Vick : [to Story]  Nice meeting you.

    Story : I'm so very happy we saw each other.

  • Vick : Am I gonna die, because I wrote this?

    Story : Yes.

  • Vick : I don't know who you are, but you did something to me... to my thoughts

  • Anna Ran : What are you guys whispering about? Is he trying to get you to tell him how many kids he's gonna have? I told him, Eight: all bratty boys.

    Vick : I asked her if she knew the name of the deaf, dumb and blind guy that's gonna marry *you*.

  • Vick : Change doesn't happen the way you say it's gonna happen, without dramatic events that accelerate thinking. I wrote this thing. It might take decades or longer to create a reaction before it anchors in the consciousness.
