    • Catherine: (reading a portion of "Surprised By Joy" by William Wordsworth) ...But how could I forget thee? Through what power, even for the least division of an hour, have I been so beguiled as to be blind to my most grievous loss? That thought's return was the worst pang of sorrow ever bore. Save one, only one, when I stood forlorn, knowing my heart's best treasure was no more; That neither present time, nor years unborn could to my sight that heavenly face restore.

    • Catherine: Professor Hughes, I don't know how to explain this to you, I don't even pretend to understand it, but Vincent and I are connected. I know him. And I know that... whatever he is, he's also the best part of what it means to be human. And if you take away his freedom, you take away that very part that makes him most human!

    • Vincent: ...I'm dying.

    • Vincent: I am only what I am. If you cut me I will bleed. If you strike me, I will strike back. And if you keep me in chains, I will die.

    • Hughes: You spoke the name Catherine. Who is Catherine?
