Jan: Paul?
Paul Edgecomb: The music too loud?
Jan: There's just this empty spot in the bed where my husband sleeps.
Paul Edgecomb: He said to tell you he's having a little trouble with that tonight.
Jan: Worried about Melinda and Hal? Is that what's got you up?
Paul Edgecomb: Yeah, that and things.
Jan: Things.
Paul Edgecomb: We got a new inmate today. Simple-minded fella.
Jan: Do I wanna know what he did?
Paul Edgecomb: No. Things that happen in this world. It's a wonder God allows it.
Jan: Why don't you come to bed? I think I have something that'll help you sleep. You can have all you want.
Paul Edgecomb: I still got something wrong with my waterworks. I don't wanna pass it on to you.
Jan: Have you seen Doc Bishop yet?
Paul Edgecomb: No. He'll want me to take sulfa tablets and I'll spend the week puking in my office. It will run its course by itself. Thank you very much for your concern.
Jan: Poor old guy.

Jan: Hey, honey. How you feeling?
Paul Edgecomb: Oh, not too bad.
Jan: What did the doctor say?
Paul Edgecomb: You know doctors. Gobbledygook, mostly.
Jan: Gobbledygook. Having stew tonight. What are you doing?
Paul Edgecomb: What does it feel like?
Jan: Well, I know what it feels like. It feels great.

Jan: Paul?
Paul Edgecomb: Yeah?
Jan: Not that I'm complaining but we haven't gone four times in one night since we were 19.
Paul Edgecomb: Yeah, we did, at your mom's.
Jan: Wanna tell me what's going on?
Paul Edgecomb: Well see, the thing is I never actually made it in to Dr. Bishop's yesterday.

Paul Edgecomb: I think about all the people I've loved, now long gone. I think about my beautiful Jan, and how I lost her so many years ago. I think about all of us walking our own Green Mile, each in our own time. But one thought, more than any other, keeps me awake most nights if he could make a mouse live so long, how much longer do I have? We each owe a death, there are no exceptions, but sometimes, oh God, the Green Mile is so long...
