Virginia Woolf: Leonard?
Leonard Woolf: In your book, you said someone had to die.
Virginia Woolf: Mmmm.
Leonard Woolf: Why? Is this a stupid question?
Virginia Woolf: No.
Leonard Woolf: Then answer my question, stupid.

Michael: Have you spent a lot of time thinking about the past?
Hana: You mean, with you?
Michael: No. No. I didn’t mean with me.
Hana: Before the trial I never thought about the past. I never had to.
Michael: And now? What do you feel now?
Hana: It doesn’t matter what I feel. It doesn’t matter what I think. The dead are still dead.
Michael: I wasn’t sure what you’d learned.
Hana: I have learned, kid. I’ve learned to read.
