Oskar Schell:
I started with a simple problem... a key with no lock... and I designed a system I thought fit the problem. I broke everything down in the smallest parts... and tried to think of each person as a number... in a gigantic equation.
[next monologue]

Oskar Schell:
But it wasn't working... because people aren't like numbers. They're more like letters... and those letters want to become stories... and dad said that stories need to be shared.
[next monologue]

Oskar Schell:
I had anticipated a six minute visit with each person named "Black"... but they were never just six minutes. Everyone took more time than I had planned for... to try and comfort me and make me feel better about my dad... and to tell me their stories. But I didn't want to feel better and I didn't want friends... I just wanted the lock. I wasn't getting any closer to my dad... I was losing him.

OSKAR: I started with a simple problem: A key with no lock. And I designed a system I thought fit the problem. I broke everything down into the smallest parts... ...and tried to think of each person as a number in a gigantic equation. It could be for a safe deposit box or a lockbox. It's old. Can I try it to see if it fits something? But it wasn't working. Because people aren't like numbers. They're more like letters. And those letters want to become stories. And Dad said that stories need to be shared. That's it, leg, leg, leg, leg! I had anticipated a six-minute visit with each person named Black... ...but they were never just six minutes. Everyone took more time than I had planned for... ...to try and comfort me and make me feel better about my dad. And to tell me their stories. But I didn't want to feel better and I didn't want friends. Tae Kwon Do, museum, comic book convention. I just wanted the lock. Point two five divided by 65... - 156 days divided by 52 equals three years. I wasn't getting any closer to my dad. I was losing him. MAN [OVER INTERCOM]: What are you, some kind of asshole? Dickass! Shiitake! All of you in this stupid fukozowa building! [GRUNTS] THOMAS [ON RECORDING]: It must be a very confusing day. I'll call you right back. WOMAN: Message four, Septem... [GASPS THEN SIGHS]
