Nate: What about you saying that things happen that leave marks…in people, in space, in time?
Brenda: Yeah, that’s physics. Energy affecting matter. Talking to dead people is delusional.
Nate: So you definitely don’t believe in any kind of a life after death?
Brenda: I think people live on through the people they love and the things they do with their lives…if they manage to do things with their lives.
Nate: But that’s it, that’s it? That’s all there is, there’s nothing more, there’s nothing like bigger?
Brenda: Just energy.
Nate: But there’s no plan, no—
Brenda: No, there’s definitely no plan. Just survival. Should I have ordered the salmon?
Nate: Uh, I don’t know. How can you live like that? I mean, what if you found out you were gonna die tomorrow?
Brenda: I’ve been prepared to die tomorrow since I was six years old.
Brenda: Yeah, pretty much. We never got butter.
Nate: Well, why, since you were six?
Brenda: Because I read a report on the effect nuclear war would have on the world, and it was pretty clear to me at that point that this was definitely gonna happen.
Nate: When you were six?
Brenda: And I wake up every day pretty much surprised that, um…everything is still here.
Nate: Well, I don’t understand how you can live like that.
Brenda: Well, I thought we all did.
