Lorna: It’s great to be alive, isn’t it?

Deangelo: What are you so happy about?

Lorna: I’m just happy to come to work.

Deangelo: What?!

Lorna: I’ve come to realize that this is more than a job. It’s a vocation. I’m doing valuable work that I’m well suited for.

Deangelo: Are you on something?

Lorna: I’m high on life and my newfound sense of purpose. I realize that I’m doing this job because I have a calling and this is what I’m meant to do.

Deangelo: I’m serious. Are you coming down with something?

Lorna: Of course not. Yesterday, it occurred to me the legacy I’ll be leaving behind after my life’s work is done.

Deangelo: Life’s work?

Lorna: Yes, I’ll be remembered in posterity as someone who made a difference.

Deangelo: You do remember what you do for a living, right?

Lorna: I provide salve to people who need it. I give succor to those in need.

Deangelo: You serve drinks in a bar.

Lorna: I provide a shoulder to cry on, a calm voice in a crazy world.

Deangelo: Talk about delusions of grandeur!
