Martin Hart: Uh... 3 months we've been together; I get nothing from you. Today, what we're into now, do me a courtesy, okay? I'm not trying to convert you.
Rustin Cohle: Look, I consider myself a realist, all right, but in philosophical terms, I'm what's called a pessimist.
Martin Hart: Um, okay. What's that mean?
Rustin Cohle: Means I'm bad at parties.
Martin Hart: Heh. Let me tell you. You ain't great outside of parties either.
Rustin Cohle: I think human consciousness was a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware. Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself. We are creatures that should not exist by natural law.
Martin Hart: Huh. That sounds god-fucking-awful, Rust.
Rustin Cohle: We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, this accretion of sensory experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody's nobody.
Martin Hart: I wouldn't go around spouting that shit, I was you. People around here don't think that way. I don't think that way.
Rustin Cohle: I think the honorable thing for species to do is deny our programming, stop reproducing, walk hand in hand into extinction, one last midnight, brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.
Martin Hart: So what's the point of getting out of bed in the morning?
Rustin Cohle: I tell myself I bear witness, but the real answer is that it's obviously my programming, and I lack the constitution for suicide.
Martin Hart: My luck, I picked today to get to know you. 3 months, I don't hear a word from you, and...
Rustin Cohle: You asked.
Martin Hart: Yeah. And now I'm begging you to shut the fuck up.
