STEVEN: I do believe I've worn out my welcome. A pity, since I haven't even arrived. Still, I always think it's better to leave before the lobotomy --
STEVE: Sorry my dear, but I --
ALICE: You can't leave!
STEVE: Alice... dear Alice... can't you see that this can never be? We come from different worlds, you and I...
STEVE: If things were different -- if you weren't colluding with others to do something unpleasant to me, if I weren't a paperclip -- who knows? But we must remain strong... and silent... and apart.
(ALICE falls to teh ground with a "WHUMP")
VIKTOR SCHRECK: Are you all right?
