** Also Boris and Sonja, whenever they talk about philosophy or go off into their respective internal monologues:
--->'''Boris''': [''to himself''] To die before the harvest...The crops, the grains. Fields of rippling wheat. Wheat. All there is in life is wheat.
--->'''Sonja''': [''to herself''] Sonja, here's your chance to do something kind for a dying boy. But I don't really love Boris. I mean, I love him, but I'm not in love with him.
--->'''Boris''': [''to himself''] Oh, wheat! Lots of wheat! Fields of wheat. A tremendous amount of wheat!
--->'''Sonja''': [''to herself''] And yet, he loves me. And he would make a devoted husband. Not too exciting, but devoted. We'd have a family. Maybe we could rent one. I could learn to love him. Me, Boris and six rented children. Or would I feel trapped? Suffocated? Can't breathe? Open a window! No, not that one! The one in the bathroom.
--->'''Boris''': [''to himself''] Yellow wheat. Red wheat. Wheat with feathers. [[ProductPlacement Cream of wheat]].
--->'''Sonja''': [''to herself''] Poor boy, duelling with Anton Lebedokov. By tomorrow, my beloved cousin Boris will look like a Swiss cheese. Promise him anything, make him happy for a night. Oh! Or would I feel trapped? Suffocated? My youth gone? Living with a Swiss cheese and rented children.

-->'''Boris''': [''humouring him''] Yes, it's a nice little house. You haven't wasted your life, I see.
-->'''Father''': Don't let any strangers come on it.
-->'''Boris''': No, no strangers.

-->'''Sonja''': Boris. Let me show you how absurd your position is. Let's say there is no God, and each man is free to do exactly as he chooses. What prevents you from murdering somebody?
-->'''Boris''': Murder's immoral.
-->'''Sonja''': Immorality is subjective.
-->'''Boris''': Yes, but subjectivity is objective.
-->'''Sonja''': Not in a rational scheme of perception.
-->'''Boris''': Perception is irrational. It implies imminence.
-->'''Sonja''': But judgment of any system of phenomena exists in any rational, metaphysical or epistemological contradiction to an abstracted empirical concept such as being, or to be, or to occur in the thing itself, or of the thing itself.
-->'''Boris''': [[BlatantLies Yeah, I've said that many times.]]
