Quotes

Carl Schlag: Listen, uh, not to be rude or anything, but, uh... what are you? I mean, the costume?
Molly: I'm a bodybag. I thought the invitation said "come as you are".
Carl Schlag: W-well, how are you a bodybag?
Molly: A synthetic shell with a corpse inside.
Carl Schlag: Oh yeah... well, you look... pretty lively to me...
Molly: Yeah, well... don't we all? I better hit the road, before I lose what little mind I have left. The creeps will be coming back in here any minute and I am *so* weary of being hit on.
