Mina: ...Why are you still holding onto your scarf? You passed the red zone! Take it off! (She closes the window)
Mina: Let me see your beautiful hair!
Mother: Would you like some more tea Melody?
Melody: Yes mom I would!... thanks!
Mina: I think you forgot about dad!

Melody: Dad is only an image to me! A heart which was beating once when I was a little child!
