There are more people alive now than have died in all of human history

[first lines]

Oskar Schell:
There are more people alive now than have died in all of human history, but the number of dead people is increasing. One day, there isn't going to be any room to bury anyone anymore. So, what about skyscrapers for dead people, that are built down. They could be underneath the skyscrapers for living people, that are built up. We could bury people 100 floors down. And a whole dead world could be underneath the living one.

OSKAR: There are more people alive now
than have died in all of human history.
But the number of dead people
is increasing.
One day, there isn't going to be any room
to bury anyone anymore.
So, what about skyscrapers
for dead people that were built down?
They could be underneath the skyscrapers
for living people that are built up.
You could bury people
100 floors down...
...and a whole dead world
could be underneath the living one.
MINISTER: Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ,
who has blessed us all with the gift of...
Doesn't anybody know
there isn't anybody in the coffin?
We should've filled it with his shoes
or something.
It's like a pretend funeral.
For a goldfish or something.
This is just what it is, Oskar.
It doesn't make sense.
[MINISTER SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY]
What if you could ride an elevator
down to visit your dead relatives...
...just like you take the bridge
to see your friends in Brooklyn...
...or the ferry to Staten Island?
Dad once told me that New York
used to have a Sixth Borough...
...right next to Manhattan.
But you can't visit that anymore...
...because it floated away
and no one knows where it is.
