Title Provided: “I’d do anything for love (but I won’t do that)”
For bonus points – stick a meatloaf in there somewhere!
I’D DO ANYTHING FOR LOVE
ZOE: I may have ordered meatloaf, but it’s still replicated meatloaf. You know as well as I do that it’s not actually animal flesh, any more than you are.
BASIL: That is true, but…
ZOE: (bringing her tray to the table and placing a salad in front of BASIL. Both of them will eat their meals during the conversation.) I know, it’s the principal of the thing. From replicated meat to actual meat is a slippery slope you ‘have no wish to encounter.’
BASIL: You are imitating me.
ZOE: Yes, but I do it out of love… speaking of which…
BASIL: (wary) Yes?
ZOE: When were you going to tell me your mother was a Synth, like you?
