Nic: Two toes down. Pedicures will never be the same.
Grace: Maybe you'll get a 20& discount.
Nic: You know, when you're going downhill, you don't ever think that you're literally going to fall apart.
Grace: (Laughs) Sorry. I shouldn't laugh.
Nic: Really. It's the only thing that gets me through.
Grace: Life is hard. You have to laugh. And then buckle down, take responsibility, and be your best you. You can't just do whatever you want because it feels good in the moment. You have to make choices and stick with them.
Nic: Oh, good lord!
Grace: I'm just saying, life is all about accepting how things are.
Nic: Okay. That's enough! You want me to give up?
Grace: No. No, you misunderstood me.
Nic: No, no, I understand. In fact, suddenly everything has become very clear, so, thank you.
Grace: What are you doing?
Nic; I have become a professional patient. I eat, drink, and crap on a schedule!
Grace: You live in the hospital. It has to be on schedule.
Nic: Yeah, but, is that a life? Well, I can tell you, it's not. No. No. God. I'm getting out of here.
Grace: Okay, well, you can't just leave. You have to get a signed release from a doctor.
Nic: Who cares? I don't care. I don't care. I don't.
Grace: You should. You're a diabetic with chronic renal failure. You're a long-term patient; if you leave, you're gonna lose your bed.
Nic: I don't care. This place is keeping me alive, but I am dying inside.
