SESTRO: ∞i don't think i have a proper response.
SESTRO: ∞i want us to be more than a bandage over a deep wound. i want equality that isn't falsified.
SESTRO: ∞i want people to be in charge of their lives, and not have to live with a system that only allows the already successful and able to thrive.
EXECUTIVE: ☊ That sounds lovely.
SESTRO: ∞but that's why it won't work!
SESTRO: ∞i've parsed every major text and historic account we have stored in the masshole compounds, i can chronologically rattle off all statutes that were ever passed or proposed—
EXECUTIVE: ☊ I'm well aware of what the Enthal psyOP can handle.
EXECUTIVE: ☊ You have used your examinations to great effect, from all that I've heard.
SESTRO: ∞and i don't have anything non-theoretical to show for it.
SESTRO: ∞"great effect" doesn't really matter if it only sounds good on paper.
EXECUTIVE: ☊ I could never write papers or speeches, myself. I don't enjoy thinking about the minutiae.
EXECUTIVE: ☊ Something always got left out in the margins and it upset me. I'd rather speak directly from the mind.
SESTRO: ∞can i ask you a question, this time around?
EXECUTIVE: ☊ Well, we only have so long.
EXECUTIVE: ☊ I wouldn't want to deprive you of a moment between us where you're able to.
SESTRO: ∞okay.
SESTRO: ∞...
SESTRO: ∞what do i need to do?
SESTRO: ∞when i go out there and look them all in the eyes.
SESTRO: ∞how do i know i'm doing the right thing?
EXECUTIVE: ☊ Do you want the honest truth?
SESTRO: ∞i'm terrible with anything else.
EXECUTIVE: ☊ There is no one right thing, Sestro. Life is not made of absolutes — or rather, it shouldn't be.
EXECUTIVE: ☊ We hurt not in vain, but to be able to find the strength to carry on and discover what we believe to be important and true.
