  7. Death: You have an inflated sense of your importance. To a thing like me, a thing like you. . . . Think how you'd feel if a bacterium sat at your table and tried to get smart. This is one little planet in one tiny solar system in a galaxy that's barely out of its diapers. I'm old, Dean, very old. So I invite you to contemplate what if any significance I find in you. Eat! Dean: I got to ask, how old are you? Death: As old as God—maybe older. Neither of us can remember any more. Life, death, chicken, egg, regardless, at the end I'll reap him too. Dean: God? You will reap God? Death: Oh yes. God will die too, Dean. Dean: This is way above my pay-grade. Cult Television
