I was sitting around with my friend Dave, Marty and James recently. I happened to have two tickets to a new movie in my pocket that I had just purchased. I mentioned that there were two four-digit numbers on the tickets and that the sum of all 8 digits was 25. Dave asked if any digit appeared more out of the 8, which I answered. Then, Marty asked if the sum of the digits of either ticket was equal to 13, which I answered too. Much to my surprise James immediately told me what the two numbers were!
What were they?

How many people can read hex if only you and dead people can read hex?
The trick is that the word "dead" represents a number in hexadecimal. That number in base 10, plus one to include yourself, is:
57005 + 1 = 57006.
