* FelonyMisdemeanor: Eugene insists that he deserves Hell because he betrayed Tracy's trust by... kissing her. Once. While he has his reasons for considering it [[MyGreatestFailure a terrible thing to do]] [[note]]namely that it freaked her out enough to make her go through with her suicide just after he'd managed to talk her off the ledge - not that that makes him deserve damnation, because ''boy howdy'' was that an overreaction by Tracy, but it's understandable that he's horrified at what he inadvertantly caused to happen - [[/note]] you could see what Hitler would be... unimpressed.

--> '''Tulip''': Live forever, huh? I guess it’d be cool. You don’t have to worry because nothing hurts you, you know? There’s nothing to be afraid of.
--> '''Cassidy''': Yeah, well, things still hurt.
--> '''Tulip''': You know what I mean. You got all your fingers chopped off, a couple of these bad boys later and they’re back.
--> '''Cassidy''': Yeah, well, alright. Yeah, that’s a point, to be sure, that’s a bonus, all right. But there’s trade-offs, like… I used to love the beach. When I was a boy me Ma used to take us to the beach in the summer, me and me brother. Every Sunday. Every other stupid kid would be down on his knees in church, we’d have the whole run of the place, I loved it. Christ, I can’t remember the last time I was on the beach.
--> '''Tulip''': Yep, me neither. I hate the beach.
--> '''Cassidy''': And there’s the boredom, you’ve heard every joke, drugs barely work, and then every one you ever cared or loved just… just dies. Except you.
