The Good Guys (my characterization of 2 quotes) 


There are other good guys. You said so.


So where are they?

They’re hiding.

Who are they hiding from?

From each other.

Are there lots of them?

We don’t know.

But some.

Some. Yes.

Is that true?

Yes. That’s true.

But it might not be true.

I think it’s true. 


You don’t believe me.

I believe you.


I always believe you.

I don’t think so.

Yes I do. I have to.


     Hold your hand in front of the flame. Don’t let it go out.

     He rose and took the pistol from his belt.

This door looks like the other door, he said. But it’s not. I know you’re scared. That’s okay. I think there may be things in there and we have to take a look. There’s no place else to go. This is it.

I want you to help me. If you don’t want to hold the lamp you’ll have to take the pistol.

     I’ll hold the lamp.


This is what the good guys do. They keep trying. They don’t give up.
