Harold: watch your language and push down hard!

Maggie: HES NOT ALIVE. ANYMORE.

Harold: well did you hold the rag down -

Harold: how hard did you push, Maggie?

Maggie: as hard I could, uncle Harry, I couldn't do it! I couldn't let him be alive! I couldn't do it! (He pulls her off of the man and holds her)

Harold: hey hey, it's okay. It's okay. You tried. You tried really hard.

Maggie: I tried so hard and I just couldn't - I shouldn't have - I shouldn't - FUCK, HIS EYES -

Harold: ssh, ssh (he pulls a blanket off the floor and covers the body from her)

(She backs away and tried to compose herself. Harry looks around the room. Her clothes are on the floor - she's in her underwear, she's young. There's a wallet with a wad of cash next to it. A gun is on the floor)
