BONTIA: Me too Uncle. Wanna join me in watching a movie?
POLOYAPOY: Sure thing.
NERI: Wait a minute Joy. Uncle Paul’s kinda tired because of the travel, so why don’t you leave Uncle alone for a while so that he can rest.
BONTIA: OK mom, see you later Uncle Paul.
(BONTIA goes outside, NERI and POLOYAPOY talk)
POLOYAPOY: Quit your acting Julie.
NERI: Of course I will. I don’t need to act with you around.
POLOYAPOY: So, you’re still after the benefits that I will receive?
NERI: Don’t forget about the one million dollar insurance.
POLOYAPOY: You good-for-nothing scumbag! Taking advantage of me just for your greed!
NERI: Everyone needs money, don’t we?
POLOYAPOY: Not everyone.
NERI: Except for you, because you can’t use it anyway. You might as well kill yourself so that I can receive the cash as soon as possible.
POLOYAPOY: Why don’t you do it yourself, so that I can leave this Earth and end my suffering?
NERI: I wouldn’t let myself go to jail just because I killed a useless paraplegic, would I?
(NERI slaps POLOYAPOY three times)
NERI: No dinner for you tonight because Paul is cranky.

EBALLE: Good morning killer.
BORDIOS: How is our beloved murderer of my sister?
POLOYAPOY: For how many times will I tell you two-
(BORDIOS interrupts POLOYAPOY)
BORDIOS: Shut up. You were the driver, Vivian was with you, she died beside you, therefore you killed her.
POLOYAPOY: You know that it was an accident.
EBALLE: Driving under the influence of alcohol is not an accident, you murderer!
POLOYAPOY: I didn’t want it to happen.
BORDIOS: You didn’t love her at all, to let her be with you despite of you being drunk..
POLOYAPOY: She’s my wife, for crying out loud! I didn’t want it to happen!
EBALLE: And we are her family! We were hurt more when she died than you, you worthless artist!
POLOYAPOY: Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! Get out of here!
BORDIOS: We will, but we’ll return to make you feel sorry.
EBALLE: Goodbye, murderer.

POLOYAPOY: Joy, I’m so happy to see you now.

POLOYAPOY: That’s not true Joy, don’t believe what they are saying.
BONTIA: I believe you Uncle.
POLOYAPOY: Thank you Joy. It’s nice to know that there’s still one who cares for me.
BONTIA: Don’t worry about...
