Jerry:     Repeat after me. There’s nothing under the bed.

Jules:     There’s nothing under the bed.

                [Pause]

Jules:     But there is, I tell you.

Jerry:     We looked. We looked again. There’s nothing under the bed.

Jules:     Just because you can see them, it doesn’t mean they’re not there.

                [Silence]

Jules:     I see them all the time. I know they’re there. All over the house. Don’t you ever                     see, you know, something flash past, out of the corner of your eye?

                [Silence]

Jules:     Like ghosts maybe?

Jerry:     I don’t believe in ghosts.

Jules:     Okay. Maybe they’re from another dimension.

                [Jerry sighs]

Jules:     String theory. There was that article. Or something to do with Dark Matter.

Jerry:     You watch too much science fiction.

Jules:     That’s science fact.

                [Silence]

Jules:     Are you asleep, Jerry?

                [Silence]

Jules:     Jerry?

                [Silence]

Jules:     Jerry?

                [Pause]

Voice:   You’re next.

                [Silence]
