Powder: She didn't go some place... your wife. I felt her go. Not away, just out... everywhere.
Powder: If you thought I was so intelligent would you ask me if I understood?
Powder: And then its possible to talk to someone without any lies. With no sarcasms, no deceptions, no exaggerations, or any of the other things people use to confuse the truth.
Lindsey Kelloway: What are people like, on the inside?
Powder: Inside most people there's a feeling of being separate, separated from everything.
Powder: And they're not. They're part of absolutely everyone, and everything.
Lindsey: It's hard to believe that, all of that.
Powder: It's because you have this spot that you can't see past. My grams and gramps had it, the spot where they were taught they were disconnected from everything.
Lindsey: So that's what they'd see if they could? That they're connected?
Powder: And how beautiful they really are. And that there's no need to hide, or lie. And that it's possible to talk to someone without any lies, with no sarcasms, no deceptions, no exaggerations or any of the things that people use to confuse the truth.
Lindsey: I don't know a single person who does that.
Deputy Harley Duncan: I'm just saying that that's more than albino, Doug. That is spooky.

Lindsey: Your father. Your father hurt you a long time ago. You're so sad, he made you so sad. He thought you were ugly, and he kept saying that you weren't... I'm sorry.
Powder: Do you? Do you?
Lindsey: Do I what?
Powder: Do you think I'm ugly?
Lindsey: I don't know what I think when I look at you. But sometimes I think, I think you're the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
