Veronica: I know what it’s like to see the ugly face of discrimination.
Lem: You do?
Veronica: Yes. I do. When I was sixteen I was 5 foot 9 and stunning. I mean off the charts gorgeous. At school I was like a swan among ugly ducklings. All the other girls hated me and… like our light sensors are doing to you, totally ignored me. If it wasn’t for the modeling contracts and the comfort of college boys I don’t know if I would have made it.
Phil: Wow. I had no idea.
Veronica: No. How could you? You’re still not 5 foot 9.
Phil: Thank you.
