Mother: *What* are you?

HIM: Me? I, am I. You? You were home.

Mother: Where are you taking me?

HIM: The beginning.

[pause]

HIM: It won't hurt much longer.

Mother: What hurts me the most is that I wasn't enough.

HIM: It's not your fault. Nothing is ever enough. I couldn't create if it was. And I have to. That's what I do. That's what I am. And now I must try it all again.

Mother: No. Just let me go.

HIM: I need one last thing.

Mother: I have nothing left to give.

HIM: Your love. It's still there, isn't it?

[pause]

Mother: Go ahead. Take it.

[to Him's followers]

Mother: MURDERERS!

[to Him]

Mother: MURDERER! It's time to get the FUCK...

[scratches Him's face as his followers gasp]

Mother: ...out of my house!

HIM: I'm his father.

Mother: And I'm his mother!

Woman: God help you.

Woman: You give, and you give, and you give. It's just never enough.

Mother: I wanna make a Paradise.

[last lines]

Maiden: [after waking up] Baby?

Woman: Why don't you want kids?

Mother: Excuse me?

Woman: [laughs] I saw how you reacted earlier.

[sighs]

Woman: I know what it's like when you're just starting out, and you think you have all the time in the world, and... you know, you're not going to be so young forever. Have kids! Then you'll be creating something together! This is all just... setting.

[pause]

Woman: Oh... You *do* want them.

[first lines]

Mother: [after waking up] Baby?

Mother: Am I gonna lose you?

HIM: Never.

HIM: [to Mother] Your love. Is still there, isn't it?

HIM: You won't hurt much longer.

Mother: What hurts me the most is that I wasn't enough.

HIM: It's not your fault. Nothing is ever enough. I couldn't create if it was. And I have to. That's what I do. That's... what I am. Now I must try it all again.

Mother: No... just let me go.

HIM: -I need one last thing.

Mother: I have nothing left to give.

HIM: -Your love. Still there, isn't it?

Mother: Go ahead... take it.

Mother: He has pictures of you in his luggage.

HIM: What were you doing in their luggage?

Herald: [to Mother] The inspiration! Where have you been hiding?

Herald: [to revolutionaries] Finish her.

HIM: I am I.

HIM: QUIET!

Mother: [to Him] Make them go!

Mother: What are you?

HIM: -Me? I am I. You... you were home.

Mother: Where are you taking me?

HIM: The Beginning.

HIM: My wife *loves* having company.

Woman: I wanna thank you for your hospitality.

Mother: What do they want?

HIM: They're waiting.

Mother: Waiting for what?

Mother: MURDER! MURDER!

HIM: They've come to see *me*.

Woman: Can I ask you a question?

[pause]

Woman: Do you really love your husband?

Mother: Yes, of course.

Woman: [sarcastically] Are you telling me the truth?
