Clones are different

[After describing the movie "The Island" to Laura and mentioning the DNA tests for the escaped clones:]

Laura: "Will they be able to tell that they are clones?"
Jack: "No, the DNA is identical."
Laura: "But maybe it's a little different."
Jack: "No, they're clones. That means they have the same DNA."
Laura: "Maybe not exactly the same."
Jack: "The DNA is identical. That's what cloning is. IDENTICAL DNA."
Laura (under her breath): "Different."
Jack: "You're being silly. And obstinate. And stubborn."
Laura: "You forgot belligerent." (then, under her breath) "Different."
