JONAS
They’re sayin’ you’re just like her! That you stare and stare at the ocean and that one day you’re gonna walk into it and never come back out!

FANNY
Nonsense.

JONAS
Is it? You sit here all day. You just stare and stare and fuck me if I know what the hell you’re looking for. You can’t really think Ma’s gonna just walk out of the sea one day.

FANNY
It could happen.
