"Have you heard about this new kind of treatment?" "No, not yet."

"Have you heard about this new kind of treatment?" "No, not yet." "Because I think you'll need it."

"Have you heard about this new kind of treatment?" "No, not yet." "Because I think you'll need it." "..."

"Have you heard about this new kind of treatment?" "No, not yet." "Because I think you'll need it." "..." "I don't want to."

"Why not?"

"Why not?" "I... I really can't explain it - "

"Why not?" "I... I really can't explain it - " "Think about it. All your bad memories."

"Why not?" "I... I really can't explain it - " "Think about it. All your bad memories." "S-Still."

"Why not?" "I... I really can't explain it - " "Think about it. All your bad memories." "S-Still." "Don't you want these bad feelings gone?"

"Yes. Yes I want them gone. It's just. Ugh, I don't know."

"Yes. Yes I want them gone. It's just. Ugh, I don't know." "There's just something off about... this."

"Yes. Yes I want them gone. It's just. Ugh, I don't know." "There's just something off about... this." "Can you tell me?"

"Yes. Yes I want them gone. It's just. Ugh, I don't know." "There's just something off about... this." "Can you tell me?" "I feel that it's just... wrong."

"How so?"

"How so?" "It's straight out of Black Mirror."

"How so?" "It's straight out of Black Mirror." "Black - what?"

"How so?" "It's straight out of Black Mirror." "Black - what?" "Nevermind... Let me just... I can't put it into words. Let me just think of how to say it."

"How so?" "It's straight out of Black Mirror." "Black - what?" "Nevermind... Let me just... I can't put it into words. Let me just think of how to say it." "...Okay...?"

"Okay. Okay. So."

"Okay. Okay. So." "I don't want my bad memories gone. No matter if because of them I'm like... this."

"Okay. Okay. So." "I don't want my bad memories gone. No matter if because of them I'm like... this." "But you'll feel better!"

"Okay. Okay. So." "I don't want my bad memories gone. No matter if because of them I'm like... this." "But you'll feel better!" "But I'm scared."

"Okay. Okay. So." "I don't want my bad memories gone. No matter if because of them I'm like... this." "But you'll feel better!" "But I'm scared." "Scared of what?"

"I'm scared of losing them because... These bad memories... These bad memories taught me something."

"I'm scared of losing them because... These bad memories... These bad memories taught me something." "Without them I wouldn't be the same person as I am now. You get me?"

"I'm scared of losing them because... These bad memories... These bad memories taught me something." "Without them I wouldn't be the same person as I am now. You get me?" "But that's the point. Look at yourself."

"You're depressed, anxious, because of them. It makes perfect sense to get rid of them."

"You're depressed, anxious, because of them. It makes perfect sense to get rid of them." "It's - It's different!"

"You're depressed, anxious, because of them. It makes perfect sense to get rid of them." "It's - It's different!" "Bad memories may have brought me these illnesses. But, they also brought some great lessons."

"These bad memories... These bad memories taught me to be stronger. They taught me not to do stupid things."

"These bad memories... These bad memories taught me to be stronger. They taught me not to do stupid things." "So please, I don't want them gone."

"These bad memories... These bad memories taught me to be stronger. They taught me not to do stupid things." "So please, I don't want them gone." "..."

"These bad memories... These bad memories taught me to be stronger. They taught me not to do stupid things." "So please, I don't want them gone." "..." "Okay fine."

"Just don't come crawling here begging for the treatment in the future, okay?"

"Just don't come crawling here begging for the treatment in the future, okay?" "I'm sure I won't."
