      • (Ray Jr. has asked what it feels like to get high on meth.)
        Ray Crin: It's poison. It's killing me, Ray, 45 seconds at a time. I know that, and I still can't stop it. I know what it's doing, and I still can't help thinking all day long what it's gonna be like the next time I smoke. And that feeling is the most consuming thing in my whole world right now.

      • (Reflecting upon his latest mission and the problems with Ben.)
