A drama focused on the friendship between a high-functioning autistic woman and a man who is traumatized after a fatal car accident.

Alex Hughes: Being with you. Being with Linda. Being with myself again. Hey, and I'm having sex and these muffins are great. That sort of thing.
Linda Freeman: Do people like you Alex?
Alex Hughes: Not much, no.
Linda Freeman: I'm not surprised. It's because those glasses don't look right on your face, you have a long face and those glasses make you look shifty.
Alex Hughes: Really?
Linda Freeman: Yes.
Linda Freeman: I know what Vivienne would want, she would want to be alive.
Linda Freeman: Perfectamundo.
Alex Hughes: I don't have baggage. I have haulage.
Linda Freeman: Have you ever had an orgasm, Alex?
Alex Hughes: It has been known.
Linda Freeman: It sounds like an inferior version of what I feel when I have a mouthful of snow.
[Shoves some into her mouth]
Linda Freeman: [disgusted by the funeral reception] All these people doing *social* in my house!
Linda Freeman: B-A-A-N-G.
Alex Hughes: You can't have two A's in bang.
Linda Freeman: In Comic Book Word Scrabble, you can. You can have three A's if you want.
Linda Freeman: [offered a music CD] I prefer tinnitus.
Linda Freeman: Neurotypical people are obsessed with having friends. I'm only trying to help you get some.
Alex Hughes: [of the autistic Linda] She's not *mad*.
Maggie: Oh, I know. Vivienne explained it all to me. High-functioning; can talk a glass eye to sleep; but can't tie her shoelaces.
Alex Hughes: So someone said you can drink this water.
Maggie: Yeah, it's supposed to have healing properties. Why don't you take a sip?
Alex Hughes: I don't think so.
Maggie: What, you don't want to be healed? Set free of your demons?
Alex Hughes: They keep me company.
Maggie: [offering to the tea-deprived Alex] Assam. Darjeeling.
Alex Hughes: [gratefully, choosing] There is a God!
Maggie: Nope, there is FedEx! An English friend of mine sent it over. Don't go inventing a deity to thank for the small miracles. They just happen.
Linda Freeman: He stops for one second and he's totally overwhelmed by how big the world is and how small and unimportant he is. And as he turns around, we see his face look to the sky. And he says, very quietly, so that no one can hear him: "Dazlious".
Alex Hughes: Mrs Summer said you can drink this water.
Maggie: Yeah, it's supposed to have healing properties. Why don't you take a sip?
Alex Hughes: [stammers briefly] Don't think so.
Maggie: What? You don't wanna be healed? Set free of your demons?
Alex Hughes: They keep me company.
Alex Hughes: I know how you must be feeling. I had a son...
Linda Freeman: You don't know how I'm feeling because you're not me.
Maggie: [to Alex] I really like you, and I hate having sex on a full stomach, so can we just skip the main course and move next door?
Vivienne Freeman: Behind every successful man is a truly astonished woman.
Alex Hughes: He's gay.
Vivienne Freeman: My point exactly.
