From "Dead Like Me: Rest in Peace (#1.14)"
The day I dropped out of college, I remember lying on my bed. My mother came into my room and she had been crying. She stared at me for a long time and then she said, 'You only have one shot at life, Georgia. This is no dress rehearsal,' and I said,'You know what, mom. Maybe I don't even want to be in the play.' Two months later I was killed. I wonder sometimes if someone was listening.
