Quote from Axl in Hecks on a Train
Axl: I didn't really kill her. Okay. Ugh. Look. Here's the thing. [sniffles] Ever since high school, whenever I had a test I wasn't ready for, or a paper due I didn't finish, I kinda used Aunt Edie to get out of it.
Axl: Anyway, we just found out last night, so I think I'm gonna need a little more time on my philosophy paper.
Philosophy Professor: Of course. And just remember, Axl, it was your aunt's shell she left on Earth.
Axl: It was her shell. So, like, three extra weeks?
Axl: Can't you see how guilty I feel about this?! If my hair wasn't such a perfect length, I could barely look at myself in the mirror. I used my aunt's life as a cheap excuse to get out of schoolwork, and by saying it so many times, I'm the reason she died. I killed her, Brick. I killed my aunt!
