Allison: With all do respect, I believe that I should be reinstated.
Senator Wen: Allison. Your last MRI still showed slight variation from your pre-incident state.
Allison: Yes, but still within the parameters of normal brain activity.
Senator Wen: Why the rush?
Allison: Because I’m fine. I’ve had multiple brain scans. My motor skills are perfectly fine.
Senator Wen: You didn’t answer my question. Why the rush?
Allison: Then I don’t understand.
Senator Wen: I think I do. To have your mind taken over, the violation, the loss of control. If it were me, I’d want my normal life back as soon as possible. I’d need it back.
Allison: Yes. Exactly.
Senator Wen: So what I need to ask you is, are you absolutely sure that you’re one hundred percent back to normal or do you just need to be?
Sharon: I look at you and I know it’s you, but still… I miss your face. Your voice.
Camille: This is hard. Probably worse on you than it is for me. This situation… It’s so easy to lose hope. I’ve seen it in others, but what keeps me sane are these few moments we’re together. Being able to come home and see you and… and hold you. Even if it’s just for a day or a minute. It’s… It’s what’s keeping me going.
