Jackie is a young woman who is left to pick up the pieces,
Mary: Oh! It’s so dark, I didn’t know you were in here. What are you doing in the dark?
Mary: Thinking. That sounds so mysterious. What are you thinking about?
Jackie: It’s not yours --
Mary: It is mine --
Jackie: You come in here, you act like you know something, like you have rights, you don’t know anything and you have no rights. You left. The f%$#ing apocalypse fell on this family and YOU LEFT. And as a consequence I’ve earned these f$@*ing stamps and I’m going to sell them. And if you think you’re going to stop me? You’ll lose.
