    1. Casey Roberts: I don't want to be sick anymore, okay?
    2. Matt Leland: You don't have to.
    3. Casey Roberts: I don't want to live like this!
    4. Matt Leland: You don't have to!
    5. Casey Roberts: They'll lock me up.
    6. Matt Leland: No... no, I'm not gonna let 'em... alright? But you can't do this yourself. Neither can I... I tried, okay? I can't do it.
    7. Casey Roberts: Well then go... if it's too much for you to handle.
    8. Matt Leland: I can handle it, alright? I mean I'm here, aren't I? I'm here right now! I'm not leaving!
