Rachel: Did you ever regret it?
Shelby: Yes. Then no. Then so much.
Rachel: When did you realize it was the right time for me to find you?
Shelby: I saw you sing at Sectionals. You were extraordinary. You were me.
Rachel: Was it hard for you to not become a star? To not have your dreams come true?
Shelby: It felt like a broken promise. Like the Fisher King’s wound. Never heals.
Rachel: Wow, genetics really are amazing. You see the world with the same fierce theatricality as I do. Even the way we’re sitting right now. It’s so dramatic and yet we feel so comfortable with it.
Shelby: I’ve missed so much. How do you feel?
Rachel: Thirsty. When I was little and I was sad, my dads would bring me a glass of water. It got to a point where I didn’t know if I was sad or just thirsty.
