Albert: So what is the "me"?
Chris: My brain I suppose.
Albert : Your brain? Your brain is a body part. Like your fingernail or your heart. Why is that the part that's you?
Chris: Because I have sort of a voice in my head, the part of me that thinks, that feels, that is aware that I exist at all.
Albert : So if you're aware you exist, then you do. That's why you're still here.


Albert: You don't understand.
Chris: It's not about understanding- it's about not giving up!

Annie: Can I sit here?
Chris: Actually, no. Two years ago, I reserved this specific area.
Annie: What if I say please?
Chris: That's the one exception.

Chris: I need Annie.
Albert : That'll change in time.
Chris: Oh, come on Einstein! Time's not on my watch anymore. Time does not exist here. And wherever it went, it's not going to make me need Annie any less.

Chris: Where is God in all of this?

The Tracker: You called your son Albert. Who is that?
Chris: First doctor I interned under. He was like a father to me.
The Tracker: Ah. His words were gold. A brilliant mind. Do you recall what he practiced before he turned to pediactrics?
Chris: Child psychia-...
The Tracker: ...psychiatry. Yeah. And he always was a slow reader. But these... [indicating his glasses] used to be rimless, and the rest of me... used to be black. I also used to read too slow. I don't need these glasses [taking off his glasses] ...my eyes being a figment of my imagination.

[After meeting his dog in the afterlife] Boy, I screwed up. I'm in dog Heaven!

[to Ian] If I was going through ****ing HELL, I'd only want one person in the whole goddamn world by my side.

A whole family lost to car crashes. Enough to make a person buy a bike.

Annie, I'm here. I still exist.
