Bill: Doesn’t that mean every hello has a good-bye?

Joy: I guess so.  I mean, that’s the duality of life, isn’t it?  Even if you’re with someone forever, eventually one of you dies.  But what if, what if you both die at the same time, like in a car crash or whatever, you don’t have to say good-bye.  Then it’s just a hello that sort of hangs there in the universe forever, an opening that never has to close.  Isn’t that a great thought?
