It's just one story. The oldest.

-Hey, uh... Didn't, uh... didn't you tell me one time at dinner once, maybe, about you used to... you used to make up stories about the stars?
-Yeah, that was-- that was, um, in A-Alaska, under the-- under the night skies.
-Yeah, you used to lay there and look up, yeah, at the stars?
-Yeah, and you remember I... I never watched a TV till I was 17, so there wasn't much to fuckin' do out there besides walk around and explore and--
-And... and look up at the stars and make up stories. Like what?
-I tell you, Marty, I've been up in that room looking out those windows every night here and just thinking... It's just one story. The oldest.
-What's that? -Light versus dark.
-Well, I know we ain't in Alaska, but... appears to me that the dark has a lot more territory.
-Yeah. You're right about that.
-Hey, listen, hey.
-Yeah, what?
-Why don't you point me in the direction of the car, man?
I've spent enough of my fuckin' life in hospitals.
-Jesus. Oh. You know what? I'd protest, but it occurs to me that you're unkillable. You want to go back, get clothes or anything?
-No, anything I left back there, I don't need. You know, you're looking at it wrong, the... sky thing. -How is that?
-Well, once, there was only dark. If you ask me, the light's winning.
