The Pep-talk

- Hey, white guy with dreadlocks…

- I am untouchable, an ugly duckling!

- Did you fall out of the sky?

- My soul is light as a feather.

- What are you running around in the desert for?

- I’m suspended in midair - very thin, cold air.

- The greatest madness a man can be guilty of in this life, is to let himself die outright, without being slain by any person whatever, or destroyed by any other weapon than the hands of melancholy.

- I always wanted my life to be more musical.

- Hell Thor, you could just eat nothing but pancakes if you wanted.

- What is wrong with you? I don't want to eat nothing but pancakes, I want to live! I mean, who in their right mind in a choice between pancakes and living chooses pancakes?

- Thor, if you pause to think, you'd realize that that answer is inextricably contingent upon the type of life being led... and, of course, the quality of the pancakes.

- What intelligent things you say! One would think you had studied.

- I have never lied to you. I have always told you some version of the truth.

- Are we done?

- I don't know. 

- Oh, my God.
