Brass: Don't you understand? We just pulled your best friend out of a lake. I mean, it was just luck it wasn't you.
Ellie: Yeah, well, it wasn't me.
Brass: Yeah, not today. But look at you. You've turned yourself into a disposable human being. Don't you get it? You're nothing but plumbing.
Ellie: What, you're going to send me to my room and ground me? Have a patrol car pick me up at prom? Or spank me?
Brass: Okay. You're right. You're right. I messed up. But I'm just trying to do the best that I can. I wish you could say the same thing.
