‘You’re the glitch,’ says the snowman. ‘I’m not referring to the bear. He fits in. He likes solving puzzles. He likes winning fights and getting gifts. We like being solved and getting killed and giving bears our gifts. I’m talking about you inside there. You and Tommy in particular. How long have you been working on that puzzle? For us, it’s been centuries. This isn’t the Giza Plateau, sir. Or should I say, I guess it is now, thanks to you. So you tell me. What does God think he’s going to find in there, assuming you could solve it? And before you get your hopes up, the mega-jump won’t help. Good try, though. You’ll smash the bear to smithereens. You’ll drizzle down that puzzle. No, it takes something else. You’re not even warm.’
‘Look, you guys are great. You give gifts the way clouds give raindrops. You’re generosity incarnate. Still, your gifts are kind of shitty, to be honest. But imagine some serious, unbelievable gift. Imagine if, say, you could move, walk, drag yourself around the game, or whatever mobility means here. I’m talking go anywhere at anytime.’ —
