He’s Already Dead

“He’s already dead.”

A grim line. How would the story around that line be built? Is it near the end of the story, somewhere in the middle or is that just the beginning. I’m watching Sanctuary on the Canadian Space channel, a re-run. Some lines just catch your attention, that would be one of them.

Develop a very story story, just 50 words, with that line as part of it.  Could you do it all in dialogue, as an extra challenge?

“The party was your idea.”
“You wanted the party far more than I ever did. You’re a party freak.”
“It’s still your house, I could leave and you’d be left to explain it to your parents.”
“What about your brother?”
“Don’t worry, he’s already dead for just borrowing the car.”
