CUTHBERT: Ashton, I’m an adult. I should be treated like an adult. And this is religious intolerance.

ASHTON: Come on!

CUTHBERT: I didn’t attack you when I found you performing your ritual to Atlach-Nacha.

ASHTON: (Pause) You know I don’t like talking about religion.

The struggle is so (beat) pointless. We live exactly as insects, and yet we look on them with horror, because they are us without justification, without the endless need to do things. The conscious mind is a freak accident, a program for double-checking cause-and-effect logic extended far beyond its purpose, an anti-virus program gone out of control.

ASHTON: I don’t chastise you for your involvement in your little cult. CUTHBERT: Come on! You just helped to bring about a holy war and you’re going to pretend to be offended that I’m invading your privacy?

CUTHBERT: You worship a god who doesn’t even know you exist.

ASHTON: And you worship one who sees your mind as food, and nothing more. You’re like a blade of grass worshiping a cow.

CUTHBERT: Let’s just agree to disagree.

ASHTON: Okay, so what do we do with the corpse?
CUTHBERT: We could just leave him there. The end is nigh, after all.
ASHTON: But he’s in the way. We’ll trip over him.
CUTHBERT: I’ll just put him in the closet.
