  • Quotes

    • Charles: Well, I think the first thing you ought to do, starting right now, is start being honest with yourself, and stop pretending that it's Adam you feel sorry for.
      Mary: But it is.
      Charles: You're not feeling sorry for Adam. You're feeling sorry for yourself. I can't say I blame you, but quit lying to yourself about it.
      Mary: I'm not! It is Adam.
      Charles: It's Adam, huh? All right, if you had a choice...if you had a choice, and only one of you could see again, who would you pick?
      Mary: What?
      Charles: You heard me. Who would you pick? Would you pick you or Adam?
      Mary: I...I...
      Charles: Oh, come on, Mary, you'd pick yourself, and you know it! And you wouldn't be doing it for Adam! In the name of God, just say it one time. "I wanted to see again for me." Say it. "I wanted to see again for me."
      Mary: (pauses, starts crying) I wanted to see again for me. I wanted to see again for me!
