You're a Character in a Book

Tom: Look, you're not real. You can't be.
Frankenstein's Monster: You said the same thing to the cat. It seems a foolish thing to say, in the face of such compelling evidence.
Tom: You're a character in a book. A really old book that nobody reads. You standing there--talking--it's like a bad joke. If you're real, then Br'er Rabbit is real. And Dracula. And the Tooth Fairy.
Frankenstein's Monster: And--Christ, perhaps.
Tom: Yeah. Him, too.
