Laura works as an anesthesiologist.
Laura: Shit happens. Life isn't fair. What are you going to do, sue God?
Laura: That's my problem with psychology, Paul. You dig and you dig and you uncover all sorts of truths about yourself, and you touch on all sorts of painful places, but what good does it do, Paul? I'm serious. I'm not being cynical. What good does it do me today to know how much I suffered then? I'm sick of feeling sorry for myself. I fucking hate feeling sorry for myself.
Laura: (to Paul) What's the matter? You're making a judgment on me. You're allowing yourself to stray from the rules. Gosh, it's too bad you weren't like this before, willing to say what's on your mind.
Paul: Children aren't supposed to take care of their parents, Laura. It's a burden that no child deserves.
Laura: I can't continue. Every minute here is tearing me apart.
