Annie January: Today, I wanted to share with you how I accepted Christ... as my personal savior. How His way is the only way... Uh... Just... just please stop the music. Please stop. (music turns off) You want me to just suck it up and do this for you? Hmm? You have no idea what you're really asking. You have no idea what I've been through. Every single word that I say up here, I'm reading from a script. I didn't write any of these words. I don't even know if I believe in them. I mean, I believe in God, I love God so much, but... Honestly, it's... it's just how godd*mn certain everyone is around here. I mean, tickets start at, what, 170 bucks, so that these people can tell you how to get to heaven? How do they know? How does anybody know? When the Bible was written, life expectancy was 30 years old. I mean, I'm not so sure you're supposed to take it literally. It also says that it's a sin to eat shrimp. What, if you're gay or if you're Gandhi, you're going to hell? I mean... And if you have sex before marriage, that's, that's not immoral. That's human. What's immoral is the guy who shoved his d*ck in my face. Here's the truth. Anyone who tells you they know the answers is lying. And I know, I know, I'm supposed to be this hero-idol-symbol-whatever, but I don't know what the hell I'm doing. I'm just as scared and confused as the rest of you. I'm done pretending, and I'm done taking any more sh*t. Thank you.
Annie January: I'm just having a bad day.
Hughie Campbell: Yeah, me, too. Uh... is it, like, a-a work thing, or... a-a life thing?
Annie January: It's a work thing. You?
Hughie Campbell: Uh... life thing.
Annie January: You know how you have this... image of yourself? Like, I thought I was strong. You know? Like, made of steel. A fighter. And... then I was faced with this horrible situation with this a**hole... and... I just heard my mom's voice in my head, "Keep smiling, the show must go on," and... I didn't fight. And now I just feel sick. Partly because I did it, but... mostly because... turns out I'm not who I thought I was.
Annie January: I was born Super-Abled. Uh, my mom was thrilled. She took me to all the little miss hero pageants, but I hated it. Ugh, I mean, I can still... smell the hairspray. Uh, but... at the Q and A, they always asked me what my wish was, and I always said, "to save the world." And the judges just chuckled like it was cute. But it wasn't a joke to me. Since when did "hopeful" and "naive" become the same thing? I mean, why would you get into this business if not to save the world? That's all I have ever wanted. And that's why I've always wanted to be in The Seven.
