- Do you really need a name?
- Yes. No. I mean, it's not that I need a name, per se. But say for instance (he scratches behind his left ear), say we were walking in a crowd of people and ...
- And what?
- And somewhere along the way I get shoved to the side, and you kept on walking and walking ahead of me without turning back. What would I do then?
- What if I turned around?
- Well, just imagine. Imagine there's a crowd around, tugging us in different directions.
- Then there's only one thing left to do.
- What?
- Never lose sight of me.
