Reverend Theo: Wait. . . Maybe I misunderstood. I thought you were chastising us for celebrating death.
Vog: I wasn't chastising you. I am trying to understand your perspective. Human lives are so incredibly short.

Vog: But when I was born, your ancestors were still living in trees and throwing poo at each other.
Reverend Theo: In fairness, most of us never outgrew the poo-throwing thing.
