Sexton: What time is it?
Death: Breakfastime on a really most excellent summer's day. You know what we need?
S: I have no idea what you think I need. You need subtitles or some kind of instruction manual.
D: We need breakfast... I love food. Food is so great. I mean, it's so much more fun than photosynthesis or having a power pack in your back, or bathing in liquid crystals or any of those things.
