Beyond Borders (2003)
Sarah Jordan: I wonder, do we all know where we belong? And if we do, in our hearts, why do we so often do nothing about it? There must be more to this life, a purpose for us all, a place to belong. You were my home. I knew from the moment I met you, that night, so many years ago.
Sarah Jordan: Why do you never say my name?
Nick Callahan: Sorry?
Sarah Jordan: You never say my name. Why?
Nick Callahan: pauses - What's the first thing you do when you get a cold?
Sarah Jordan: What?
Nick Callahan: What's the first thing you do when you get a cold?
Sarah Jordan: Uh... chicken soup, aspirin, scotch...
Nick Callahan: You never just have the cold?
Sarah Jordan: I don't know what...
Nick Callahan: interrupts - Taken nothing. Just have the cold?
Sarah Jordan: No
Nick Callahan: No, and that's us, right? We drown it. Kill it. Numb it, anything not to feel. You know, when I was a doctor in London, no one ever said 'medahani'. They don't thank you like they thank you here. Cos here they feel everything, straight from God. There's no drugs, no painkillers. It's the weirdest, purest thing - suffering. And when you've seen that kind of courage in a li... - pauses, tears well up -... in a child... How could you ever want to do anything but just hold him in your arms? You remember that boy in London, JoJo?
Sarah Jordan: Yes of course
Nick Callahan: He was my first save, 10 years old. So thin he could barely stand. But he still found the strength the bury the rest of his family. We have no idea what courage is... He used to write me little notes. He helped me in the clinic. He was good. He was sweet, he was good. He wanted to be like me, I liked that. I mean, it was silly and childish, but it made me feel good about myself. So I took him with me to London, you know, my talisman, my courageous Africa... - pauses - How could I be so bloody stupid? How could I be so totally selfish? The point is... he was my friend. He had a name. So now I HAVE to remember him. If everybody I lose has a name...
Sarah Jordan: Perhaps we are all refugees from something, but I see now there is nothing to fear, that the world we hold onto, the lives we cherish, are a part of something greater, something more. When I look at my children I see it so clearly, that hope, that chance of life, and I know it's worth fighting for.
Sarah Jordan: You have always been with me. Your courage, your smile, your damned stubbornness. There has never been any distance between us, and there never will be. I love you Nick. I love you.
Nick Callahan: If I could live this life again, I would never leave you for a second.
Sarah Jordan: Never forget what took me a lifetime to learn; you have only one heart, be true to it.
Nick Callahan: I came here to help these people, and the only way I can do that is if I transport guns.
Sarah Jordan: You don't have to transport guns to help people.
Nick Callahan: You do here.
Nick Callahan: Are you wearing perfume... in the fucking desert?
