Why does a person even get up in the morning? You have breakfast, you floss your teeth so you'll have healthy gums in your old age, and then you get in your car and drive down I-10 and die. Life is so stupid I can't stand it.

Codi: "So you think we all just have animal dreams. We can't think of anything to dream exceptour ordinary lives."; Loyd: "Only if you have an ordinary life. If you want sweet dreams, you've got to live a sweet life.";
