Mark Evans


...once you realize that you can do anything... you're free. You can fly. Nobody can touch you... nobody.


Henry: I feel sorry for you, Mark. You just don't know how to have fun.
Mark: What?
Henry: It's because you're scared all the time. I know. I used to be scared too. But that was before I found out.
Mark: Found out what?
Henry: That once you realize that you can do anything... you're free. You can fly. Nobody can touch you... nobody. Mark... don't be afraid to fly.
Mark: You're sick...
Henry: Hey, I promise you something amazing, something you'll never forget. Where's the gratitude?

You're not going to die, mom. I promise... You're not going to die cause I won't let you.

Henry is gone... and the rest of us are safe... but sometimes... late at night... I find myself thinking... not about Henry, but about Susan and wondering. If she had it to do over, would she make the same choice? I guess I'll always wonder... but I know Ill never ask.

You like my sister, don't you? Such a sweet little girl... it'd be too bad if something were to happen to her... like she got hurt... you'd be sad, wouldn't you, Mark? But hey, accidents can happen... just ask my mom about Richard.

[taunting Mark as he's hanging, about to fall] If I let you go... do you think you could fly?

You really thought I was going to jump, huh? I guess you don't know me very well, Mom.

[While they are playing hide and seek, and Mark says 'Hey, no fair!' after Henry shines a flashlight in his face] No fair? What do you think this is, a game?

I can show you something amazing...something you'll never forget. Are you in?

Hey, Mark- don't **** with me.

[Coldly, after his mother asks if he killed Richard] What if I did?

[After his mother tells him she'll get help, and that he can trust her] No... no I can't... you just want to send me away, don't you?...You're going to put me in one of those places...I'd much rather die, you hear me? I'd much rather be dead!

[Last words] Mom! Mom, I love you!

Mark: I can handle it.
Alice: Why?
Mark: [after a pause] Because when you make a promise when something is your fault.
Alice: What did you do?
Mark: I let someone die.

Henry: [Henry gives Mark a cigarette] Go on.
Mark: They give you cancer.
Henry: Who cares you're gonna die anyway?
