Penny: I don't want to fall asleep. Okay? Don't let me fall asleep. Promise. Dodge: I promise. What about your parents? Penny: They're romantics. They understand. Besides, they've got each other. I just want to be with you. Dodge: And I want to be with you. Penny: I couldn't live without you. No matter how long. What do we do now? Dodge: I just want to lay here with you. Just want to talk to you. Penny: Okay. What are we gonna talk about? Dodge: Where'd you grow up? Penny: Well, I was born in Surrey. My whole family are from there. My mum was a journalist before she married my dad. They never fought. Or at least we never heard them fight. Charlie's the oldest, then Benny, then me. We had a sister but she died when she was born. I still think about her. (*explosion*) Penny: Oh God. Dodge: What was her name? What was your sister's name? Penny: Patricia. Patricia Hope Lockhart. Dodge: That's beautiful. That's a beautiful name. Penny: I wish I'd met you a long time ago. When we were kids. Dodge: It couldn't have happened any other way. It had to happen now. Penny: But it isn't enough time. Dodge: It never would have been. Penny: I'm scared. Dodge: I... am madly in love with you, Penny. You're my favorite, favorite thing. Penny: I thought that somehow we'd save each other. Dodge: We did. Penny. I'm really glad I got to know you.
