Jaime: I have no objection to taking assignments - but with some very strict conditions.
Oscar: You can write your own ticket.
Jaime: Hear me out before you say that - because it's not going to be smooth sailing anymore; it's not going to "blow the whistle and Jaime jumps."

Jaime: I need some time to have a life of my own also. That may mean marriage, children - I don't know. But it does mean some work that I feel good about - teaching, helping kids... uh... something positive, because, y'see, I experience the O.S.I. as negative activity. It's, uh, fending off disaster; it's survival time, and I must have some things in my life that... that give me perspective, so that my work for you will mean something. Now, if that seems unreasonable, I'm sorry, but that's how I feel.
