*Rando Dando* Love, Actually

Daniel: So what’s the problem, Sammy-o? Is it just Mum, or is it something else? Maybe… school - are you being bullied? Or is it something worse? Can you give me any clues at all?

Sam: You really want to know?

Daniel: I really want to know.

Sam: Even though you won’t be able to do anything to help?

Daniel: Even if that’s the case, yeah.

Sam: Okay. Well, the truth is… actually… I’m in love.

Daniel: Sorry?

Sam: I know I should be thinking about Mum all the time, and I am. But the truth is, I’m in love and I was before she died, and there’s nothing I can do about it.

Daniel: [laughs] Aren’t you a bit young to be in love?

Sam: No.

Daniel: Oh, well, okay… right. Well, I mean, I’m a little relieved.

Sam: Why?

Daniel: Well, because I thought it would be something worse.

Sam: [incredulous] Worse than the total agony of being in love?

Daniel: Oh. No, you’re right. Yeah, total agony.
