cuparfyfe: I want to go skydiving.
missbanshee: You cannot go skydiving. You will fall and break your life.

missbanshee: Your destiny is to fall a million miles and land in a puddle of your own organs?
cuparfyfe: No such thing will happen.
missbanshee: Stranger things HAVE happened that didn’t involve leaping from an aircraft.
cuparfyfe: I will fly. Like an eagle. To the sea.
missbanshee: You will fall. Like a rock. To your bloody demise. Splat.
cuparfyfe: Not this eagle, missy. This eagle will SOAR.
