Bobby: [enters the diner and walks to the booth at the end where The Man is reading a newspaper] Are you the man that can make things happen?
The Man: [scowls] I don't know what you're talking about.
Bobby: I'm pretty sure you're the guy.
The Man: What makes you think so?
The Man: [seated at the booth] Cheryl, you will either find a woman without family and friends and torture her, or you won't. And if you do, your daughter will be healed. And if not, she won't - at least, not by any means found in this booth.
Dillon: [seated at the booth] Uh, is this for real?
The Man: It's real, but if you wanna get what you want, you gotta be honest with me.
Dillon: I told you the truth.
The Man: The words are true. Honesty's a little more complicated.
The Man: [seated at the booth] You understand no matter what you choose to get, you will be breaking the world. That's what we do. We take the world, and we crack it.
Maria: Alright, then. Yes. My mother. I want my mother to spend her last days filled with love for what is in front of her. I just don't want her to lose sight of joy. Can I ask for that?
The Man: You can.
Maria: What do I have to do?
The Man: [briefly consults his journal] You will have to make five people cry.
Conner: [seated at the booth] How come grownups get to get what they want but not me?
The Man: Because you don't know what you're getting yourself into.
Conner: I just want my dad home - the way it was.
The Man: There are things I do not know about this world - about people - about how things will turn out. But I do know this: There are consequences.
Doris: [seated at the booth next to The Man's booth] Hey - long time, no see.
The Man: [shakes his head] Not that long.
The Man: [nods] Doris.
Doris: Still mysterious. You surprised to see me?
The Man: I did leave without saying goodbye. I like to move on.
Doris: I bet you do.
