Quotes

[First lines]
Billy Bloom: Sometimes, I dream I can fly. But I'm *so* exhausted from flapping my wings and the higher I soar, it reminds me of how little I fit in with them on the ground. So, I rise and I rise and... I realize that I don't wanna fly anymore. They never knew what they were looking up at anyway.
