Dave Rygalski: I stayed up all night. I read the entire Bible cover to cover. I don't know what it means.
Mrs. Kim: David.
Dave Rygalski: You have to tell me what it means. Is it yes, is it no? I can't feel my right elbow anymore. I don't even know why, but I can't.
Mrs. Kim: David.
Dave Rygalski: Please, just tell me. I'm so tired.
Mrs. Kim: It's not from the Bible.
Dave Rygalski: What?
Mrs. Kim: It's Shakespeare, Henry VI. I like to goof off now and then, too, you know.
Dave Rygalski: Shakespeare.
Mrs. Kim: That is a very difficult thing to do, reading the Bible in one night. I myself have only done it three times.
