Notable dialogue

Roy Cropper: "The truth is, she was not perfect. She was flawed. She was real. She was my light, my beautiful coruscating light. My life was a dark corner and she came into it. I could see. I could see the world with her. I understood life. I understood love. She was my constant, my comfort, my compass."
