GLYLLY: Black metal container? Yeah. You know you’re supposed to make a protective circle and put the vessel in it, right?

SARAH: Are you? Going to hurt me?
GLYLLY: Well, you hurt me first!
SARAH: I didn’t mean to. I was scared. (beat) Are you really a demon?
GLYLLY: I am. My name’s Fnarglyl, but my friends call me Glylly. (beat) Are you really a pink skin – I mean – a human?
