Who cares about the dog?

– I read the manuscript…
– And?
– I was impressed… you managed to kill almost all major characters…
– Yeah! I pray at the altar of the great Martin.

– Sure! I mean who cares about the mutt, am I right or am I?
– You do realize this is supposed to be the first episode of the reboot of Lassie, right?
