Dialogue[]

MANDY SALTER (to Mark): Mark, I'm not religious or anything. But, sometimes at Christmas, or if I go into a church or something. I get like a tingly feeling... I mean when things have gone really really bad, something nice like this happens. I can't help but think there's gotta be a god up there looking over me. I mean, when nice people like you, who do things for me that they don't have to do. I just think I'm the luckiest person in the world.
