From The Host (2013)
Melanie Stryder: Wanda, my sister.
Wanderer/Wanda: Yes, sister?
Melanie Stryder: Please don't do this.
Wanderer/Wanda: Don't you want to be with Jared... and Jamie?
Melanie Stryder: It doesn't have to be this way. You don't have to die. You really could go to another world, the way you've been telling everyone.
Wanderer/Wanda: Thank you, but... by the time I got to the closest planet, you, Jamie, Jared, Ian, everyone on this world I care about would be long dead. I don't want to go on without you. I love you, Mel.
Melanie Stryder: I love you. You are the purest soul, human or not, that I've ever met. The universe will be a darker place without you.
