Little Darling: What does the storm say?
Space Man: Incoherent utterances of existential insecurity, uncertainty, frustration.
Little Darling: It’s not about the storm, is it? It’s the cowering in the cold.
Space Man: Yes, this daft inability to quell the flux, despite the knowledge that the flux exists only in the mind. I guess it’s like spreading a blanket over an incoming tsunami.
Little Darling: You need whisky.
Space Man: Haha! Yes.
Little Darling: You know Cat on a Hot Tin Roof?
Space Man: I do, but pray tell.
Little Darling: In Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Brick the drunkard says he’s waiting for the tick. He needs to drink until the tick happens. The tick in his head.
Space Man: Does the tick happen?
Little Darling: No, because his father forces him to stop.
Little Darling: Rocket.
Space Man: Yes?
Little Darling: Don’t be afraid of your own mind. We’re all here together.
Space Man: Yet so far apart.
