At a new diner in a new city, a boy, Bobby, comes to see The Man. The Man says that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about, and Bobby says that his friend Conner’s dad got kicked out of his house and hasn’t been seen, and he was really sick. Bobby wants to help his friend but The Man warns him that when someone makes a deal with him, anything can happen. After a moment, Bobby turns and leaves...Read the full recap
The Man: Do you know what can happen when someone makes a deal with me?
The Man: Anything.
Dillon: I just want to be able to enjoy my life.
The Man: You'd need to live forever to do that?
Dillon: Haven't figured it out so far.
The Man: But if you want to get what you want, you have to be honest with me.
Dillon: I told you the truth.
The Man: The words are true. Honesty is... a little more complicated.
Maria: But to change, to remake the world...? No, that'd be too much. Uh, breaking of the world.
The Man: You understand, no matter what you choose to get, you will be breaking the world. That's what we do. We take the world and we crack it.
Cheryl: It doesn't make any sense.
The Man: It doesn't have to.
Cheryl: I'm not really sure how I do this.
The Man: You'll sort it out.
Cheryl: How would I even know if I'm doing it right?
The Man: I think you'll know.
Cheryl: I really don't think that I will.
The Man: Cheryl, you certainly won't be the first person to find a good reason to torture someone.
Cheryl: My baby girl can't be a reason for that.
The Man: There you go. Now you know.
The Man: There are things I do not know about this world. About people, about how things will turn out. But I do know this. There are consequences. When you start changing the world, you don't know when the changes are going to stop. See?
Bobby: He doesn't want to change the whole world. Just his dad.
The Man: You think changing a man is any small thing?
