The Discovery (I) (2017)
Isla: Sometimes I feel like I'm taking someone else's spot and then I feel sad. How do you mean? Like, being here alive is a waste because... I don't enjoy it, I'm not happy or grateful... and I'm taking a spot away from someone who maybe would've gotten something more out of it.
Will: Yeah. I guess I don't think it works that way.
Lacey: Please don't lose faith in me.
Thomas: "Faith" Oh, God. I have such contempt for that word. Show me someone who relies on faith and I'll show you someone who's given up control over whatever it is they believe.
Interviewer: Dr. Harber, before we're live, I just wanted to say thank you for choosing me.
Thomas: [warming up his voice] Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
Interviewer: The rich history you have with other journalists...
Thomas: I chose you precisely because we don't have a history. Now, don't fuck it up.
Producer: Fifteen seconds...
Interviewer: Death used to be something we just had to live with, and now it's a convenient way to escape pain. That's okay.
Will: That's okay? Another plane of existence, maybe. Who knows? But I look around, I see a lot of people jumping out of planes hoping they're gonna grow wings. And reality and fantasy are mutually exclusive. They don't exist in the same space.
Will: We're a bunch of people running around making the same mistakes over and over, and I don't know why we think it'll be different somewhere else unless we learn what we're supposed to while we're here.
Will: I think it's our instinct to search for meaning, and when there is none we create meaning and we lie, we just lie to ourselves.
