Daniel: So what's the problem, Sammy? Is it just Mum or is it something else? Maybe... school? Are you being bullied? Or is it something worse? Can you give me any clues at all?
Sam: You really want to know?
Daniel: I really want to know.
Sam: Even though you won't be able to do anything to help?
Daniel: Even if that's the case, yeah.
Sam: OK. The truth is actually... I'm in love.
Sam: I know I should be thinking about Mum all the time, and I am. But the truth is I'm in love and I was before she died, and there's nothing I can do about it.
Daniel: Aren't you a bit young to be in love?
Daniel: Oh, OK, right. Well, I'm a little relieved.
Daniel: Well, you know... I thought it might be something worse.
Sam: WORSE THAN THE TOTAL AGONY OF BEING IN LOVE???
Daniel: Oh. No, you're right. Yeah, total agony.
