Voiceover

I think you're making a big, big mistake. 
What? 
Don't do this. 
What are you talking about? 
Please don't do this. 
You said you liked this idea. 
You're gonna look stupid.  
You're gonna look weird. 
Come on. Let's just do it. Wait a minute, wait a minute. What do you use these for? 
My body? 
A tumor? 
Yes. 
Me? 
Yes. 
That doesn't make any sense though. I mean,I don't smoke, I don't drink, I, I recycle. 
How do you feel right now? 
Fine. Yeah, I, I can't remember being so calm in, in a long time. 
Would you describe what you're feeling as a kind of numbness? 
No, I would describe it as fine. 
You're young. Young people beat cancer all the time. Every celebrity beats cancer. Tom Green, the guy from Dexter, Lance Armstrong, he keeps getting it. 
I'm moving in. 
No. Mom, no. 
I'm your mother Adam. 
Exactly. 
You want a macaroon? 
Oh, thanks. I'm all right. 
There's weed in 'em. 
You got a prescription for medicinal marijuana? 
No, I got a prescription. 
Well, what's wrong with you? 
I have night blindness. 
We shouldn't have done this. 
Yeah, big mistake. 
Using your balls trimmer instead of going to a barber. 
I never wash them. Ever. 
Hello? 
Hey, it's Adam. 
Adam? What, what's going on? 
I'm just probably having a nervous breakdown. 
What are your chances? 
It's like 50/50. 
It's not that bad! If you were a casino game, you'd have the best odds. 
It's what everybody's been saying. You'll feel better and don't worry and this is all fine, and it's like, it's not. 
You can't change your situation. The only thing you can change is how you choose to deal with that. 
You really think that a girl's gonna go for me just because I have cancer? 
For the millionth time, yes! 
Great song. 
Totally. 
I have cancer. 
I was wrong. I was wrong. It was weird. It's weird like that. It doesn't sound cool.
