MMTLC: I was most interested in the relationship which is left unresolved at the end and might be kind of a cop out
Me: That strikes me as kind of a girl thing to say.
MMTLC: It is. I’m a girl. I like relationships.

MMTLC: But did you see that movie? They eat a person at the end. Cannibalism isn’t very girly.
