From Ironweed (1987)
Helen: Everything ails me.
Francis Phelan: Oh, come on. At least you got to sing a song.
Helen: Yeah, I did. I sang while Sandra was dying over there.
Francis Phelan: Oh, come one. She was gonna die anyway. Her time was up.
Helen: Oh, well, I don't believe that. I believe you die when you can't stand it any more. Take as much as you can, then you... You die when you can.
