      Sam Swarek: Andy. Oh! Can you please turn that off?
      Andy McNally: You gotta get up.
      Sam Swarek: Wh-why? What are you talking about?
      Andy McNally: We'll go to the service station. Uh, they'll have some cake-like things there. Maybe even some balloons.
      Sam Swarek: Andy, would you get back into bed, please?
      Andy McNally: It's my dad's birthday. I cannot believe I forgot. It's my job to remember.
      Sam Swarek: Well, maybe he had plans, you know?
      Andy McNally: He has no plans, 'cause he only has me. And now you. So, let's go.

      Sam Swarek: Go.
      Andy McNally: If things go south with us, you know, and I don't want them to, I hope they don't, but if they do, then don't - don't just walk out the door, okay? Let's promise to work at it.
      Sam Swarek: You won't get rid of me without a fight.
