Ken Barlow: "You know the sad thing? I don't think you know what it is that you do want. You say you want excitement, but when it comes to choosing, when it comes to deciding what's best for your future, you always come back here to me. That just shows how you always back away from what you feel that you want. That just shows how scared you are of being happy."
