      • Doug: Safe again. I know where everything is, from here. There's the table on my left; the button, for the nurse -- beep beep! My world has suddenly become very small.
        Willie: Can I get you anything?
        Doug: I'm fine. D'you ever think about how much of our speech is made up of words that relate to sight? When we understand something, we say, "I see." How many times a day do you hear somebody say, "I'll see what I can do"? The whole damn language is based on what we can see.

      • Kate: What do you think?
        Buddy: I think the guy that did it should be boiled in oil, that's what I think.
        Kate: That won't bring back Daddy's sight, Buddy.
        Buddy: Something has to. He can't be blind, he's my father.

      • Nancy: Uhhh... Well, I'll tell Buddy I'll pick her up at school and bring her back here.
        Willie: No, Nancy, I'll do it.
        Nancy: No, let me. I hide things better than you do.

      • Bertrand Hammond: Well, I simply don't understand it. I've taught you everything you know!
        Willie: No, Mr. Hammond, you've taught me everything you know.
