|Description|| I said my goodbyes today. Tomorrow I fly out for Canada...you know, I've left this place dozens of times before and didn't need to do this...but this time, it just felt right to do. Weird.|

Marla: I'm, um... I'm saying my goodbyes. It's not... it's not a permanent thing, it's just that... I've got some stuff to do and, I dunno, it felt appropriate. It's actually kind of weird, I've never really felt like I needed to before. (Footage of a cat) So... Goodbye Binky. (Footage of a dog) Goodbye puppies. Goodbye fireplace, even though I never lit you. I even said goodbye to the slugs. (Footage of a slug) I realized today that I could probably learn something from the patience of a slug. You know, I have so much here that I love, you know? The dogs, and the yard, and the pond, and it's just really beautiful here. I was just getting comfortable too. Well, even though it's really lonely. And now, because you live in a crazy country with crazy border security, I have to go all the way back to Canada just to get a passport so I don't have to worry about getting out of the country every ninety days. It's like, the most ridiculous thing, I don't even know.
Andrew: Hey, goober, take a break, come love me.
Marla: Well, I guess I could.
Andrew: I've got candy corn!
Marla: Candy Corn's good.
