"The response in Latin, to the expressed "dominus vobiscum" (The Lord be with you) is traditionally "et cum spiritu tuo" (and with your spirit too). It's a catholic thing."

"Scott, you will always be alive. When you are dead you will have no idea you are dead. The only conscious awareness you will ever have will be of being alive. As far as you're concerned, you will only ever be alive."
