Joy


After a beat...

CARTER:
The ancient Egyptians had a
beautiful belief about death.
When their souls reached the
entrance to heaven, the gods would
ask them two questions. Their
answers determined if they were
admitted or not.

EDWARD
All right, I'll bite... What were
they?

CARTER:
Have you found joy in your life?

EDWARD:
Mmmhmm.

CARTER:
Answer the question.

EDWARD:
Me, um... answer have I found joy
in my life?
(thinks for several
moments)
Yes.

CARTER:
Has your life brought joy to
others?

EDWARD:
Oh, this type of question. I
don't know. I don't think about
how other people gauge... Ask
them.

CARTER:
I'm asking you!
