    • Chris: Dust mites. Oh, god, they live everywhere. Clothes, drapes, lint in your belly button. Not any more. Kind of makes you think. Maggie: What do you mean? About what? Chris: About your cabin, about the unseen civilizations, about the parallel universe. Don't you wonder what you wasted in there? Moms, Dads, universities, shopping malls. Maggie: Oh Chris, they're just bugs. Chris: Yeah, but who knows what kind of socio-cultural structure they've cooked up in this microscopic melting pot. Maggie: Universities?

    • Maggie: Life is everywhere. The earth is throbbing with it, it's like music. The plants, the creatures, the ones we see, the ones we don't see, it's like one, big, pulsating symphony.
