Reg: [picks up phone] Hey, Mom, what’s up?
Mom: That Asari councilwoman told me my summit was a waste of time!
Reg: …yessss. She does that.
Mom: How can she say that? How can any of them say that? I consistently save the universe. I consistently help everyone!
Reg: Well, there was that one time you killed three hundred thousand-odd batarians.
Mom: Nobody likes them anyway, and that’s besides the point. The point—the point is that I’m Commander Shepard. I destroyed Sovereign. I talked back to Harbinger. And I’m going to unite the turians and the krogan and then laugh in that woman’s face.
Reg: You feel very strongly about this.
Mom: Of course I do! They tell me over and over that I’m wrong and I’m wasting my time, when I’ve been right from day one! Arguing with them is like arguing with—with— [sputters] With something dumber than a rock! [pause] How’s work going, sweetie? Are you having a good day?
I’m having a better one having listened to that, let me tell you.
