[On a CB radio, late at night]
Travis Grady: Who'd I just pass there? That you, Good Buddy?
Good Buddy: Treetop tall and wall-to-wall. Travis, you messed up sonofabitch. What you doing on my road?
Travis Grady: Late on a gig, bud. I'm taking the shortcut past Silent Hill. Stopping for coffee as soon as I hit Brahms. I'm beat.
Good Buddy: Bad dreams still keeping you awake? I told you man, a girl or two would go a long way. Sleep like a baby with a chick in your cab.
Travis Grady: Guess I just don't meet the right girls, Bud.
Good Buddy: Maybe if you weren't always blabbering about
Good Buddy: - remember how or why...
Travis Grady: Hey chill. You don't see me bringing up your issues.
Good Buddy: No need. My old lady keeps me fully informed of my failings. The girl keeps notes.
Travis Grady: You mean she hasn't left you yet?
Good Buddy: Any day now. See you 'round, Travis. Take it easy.
Travis Grady: 10-4. Catch you later, Buddy.
[Travis encounters a strange woman while exploring the sanitarium]
Travis Grady: You were at the fire! I saw you there.
Dahlia Gillespie: Of course you did. That was my house... burning. My daughter, Alessa. You were the one who saved her?
Travis Grady: Yeah. She was your daughter? Why did you leave her? Why did no one help? You all left that girl to burn.
Dahlia Gillespie: So we did. The world is stranger than you think.
Travis Grady: You're crazy. What happened to her? Lisa said she was dead.
Dahlia Gillespie: Alessa is with those who care for her. Do not trust her, Travis. She does not know what she is doing.
Travis Grady: How do you know my name?
[Dahlia starts to walk away]
Travis Grady: Hey, answer me!
Helen Grady: I had to do it.
Dr. Harris: You had to? Please, help me understand.
Helen Grady: That's what you do with pests. That's what you do, isn't it? And he was a pest. Oh, he was a bad boy! Always has been. I tried to pretend he wasn't... but they were there to make sure I didn't forget.
Dr. Harris: They?
Helen Grady: The people in the mirrors. They see it all! What's really going on.
Dr. Harris: And it was their idea?
Helen Grady: Yes. They saw the devil inside of him. I had to kill him! My responsibility. My flesh and blood. I brought him into this world, so I had to take him out of it! Good wombs can bear bad sons, they say. I know you think what I did was wrong.
Dr. Harris: I just want to understand... Helen...
Helen Grady: No! You want to keep me locked up, doctor. But you can't. I can leave whenever I want. I can step through that mirror and into their world. This world is just a daydream.
Dr. Harris: Helen?
Helen Grady: When will they bring me my boy?
[Travis unexpectedly encounters Lisa again in the Artaud Theatre]
Travis Grady: What are you doing in here, Lisa?
Lisa Garland: Sorry if I scared you. I thought I was the only one in here.
Travis Grady: It's dangerous.
Lisa Garland: Dangerous? You're kidding! The door was open, so I let myself in. I just love the theater, Travis. I want to be an actress. But mom was a nurse, and her mom was a nurse... So I'm going to be a nurse. I've got what it takes though.
[moves toward Travis and speaks in a sultry voice]
Lisa Garland: I can't stop thinking about you, Travis. I want you. You're all I think about. Let's get the hell out of this crazy town... Run off - the two of us. We could be so good together...
[laughs and moves away]
Lisa Garland: See? I could be a star!
Jodie Mason: Harry, it's a baby!
Harry Mason: It's a girl. Go on, hold her.
Jodie Mason: Cheryl... we'll call her "Cheryl".
[In the Joke ending, Travis stares up at the moon]
Travis Grady: The lonely moon... You've always been there for me, haven't you?
[a UFO descends from the sky and an alien and Mira the dog debark]
Mira the Dog: Ruff! Ruff!
Friendly Alien: Greetings, Travis!
Travis Grady: You seen my truck? I have to find my truck.
Mira the Dog: [to the alien] Ruff, ruff!
Friendly Alien: Your truck is on our planet. Come with us.
Travis Grady: Can I drive?
Friendly Alien: You drive stick?
[Travis, the alien and Mira board the UFO and it flies away]
