“When [the character] meets Time, he says to her, ‘You know I get a bad rep. People are always blaming me for their lives moving too quickly. I think it’s the humans that are at fault. They are the ones that move too quickly. They are the ones that are always thinking about yesterday. They’re always thinking about tomorrow. How about the beautiful todays that I give you? Why don’t you appreciate those?’” – Melissa Toole
