Melissa: You have some left?

Melissa: Good. Well, you go home and you take it. You take the dose down, but you don’t just stop. You’ll die if you just stop. Try to taper off. Otherwise the headaches are just the beginning. I have to go.

Eddie Morra: Unless you see a real threat. I never wanna know that I have any security. You’ll never perceive me. You’ll always follow me. Never more than fifteen steps behind.
