Hallie: I never met her. She and my Dad split up when I was a baby, maybe even before, I’m not sure. He doesn’t really like to talk about her… but I know she was really beautiful.
Annie: How do you know that?
Hallie: Because my dad had this old picture of her hidden in his sock drawer and he caught me looking at it all the time so he gave it to me to keep. I’m really thirsty, you sure you don’t want to go to the canteen and get something to drink?
Annie: Will you stop thinking about your stomach at a time like this!
Hallie: At a time like what?
Annie: Don’t you realize what’s happening? Oh man, this is beyond coincidence, this is beyond imagination! I only have a mother, and you only have a father… You’ve never seen your Mom, and I’ve never seen my Dad. You have one old picture of your Mom, I have one old picture of my Dad but at least yours is probably a whole picture. Mine’s a pathetic little thing, ripped right down the middle… What are you rummaging in your trunk for this time?
Hallie: This. It’s the picture of my Mom. And it’s ripped too.
Annie: Right down the middle?
Hallie: Right down the middle.
Annie: This is so freaky. Okay. On the count of three, we’ll show them to each other, okay?
