Des­per­ate law stu­dent: But I love you!
Heart­less biotech: That’s your prob­lem, not mine.
Des­per­ate law stu­dent: I can’t live with­out you.
Heart­less biotech: So don’t.
Des­per­ate law stu­dent: You would­n’t even care if I killed my­self, would you?
Heart­less biotech: Not un­less you de­cid­ed to do it in front of my house and I had to have po­lice and the me­dia there. Then I’d be pissed.
Des­per­ate law stu­dent: How can you be so cru­el to some­one who loves you so much?
Heart­less biotech: Oh, just one thing — if you do de­cide to kill your­self try to do it the week of Au­gust sixth, ’cause I’ll be in Martha’s Vine­yard with Ja­son then.
