In Time: I Wouldn't Waste It

Henry: "How old are you? In real time?"
Will: "28."
Henry: "I'm 105. Does it show? The day comes when you've had enough. Your mind can be spent even if your body's not."
Will: "That's your problem? You've been alive too long? Have you ever known anyone who's died?"
Henry: "For a few to be immortal, many must die."
Will: "What the hell is that supposed to mean?"
Henry: "You really don't know, do you? Everyone can't live forever, where would we put them? Why do you think there are time zones? Why to you think taxes and prices go up the same day in the ghetto? The cost of living keeps rising to make sure people keep dying. How else could there be men with a million years almost from day to day? The truth is, there's more than enough. No one has to die before their time. If you had as much time as I have, what would you do with it?"
Will: "If I had all that time, I sure as hell wouldn't waste it."
