Morris: [first lines - into video camera] I remember looking out at the two of you, Tom playing on the dock, you watching. I was thinking how lucky you were to have a mom like her. And how lucky she was to have a boy like you. That's what you stole from me Simon. That's what I can never forgive.
Morris: When someone carries that kind of anger around all of the time, they can seem stupid. That's the thing about anger, it sucks up a lot of intelligence.
Simon: [class monologue] Innocence is a hard thing to describe, it's like a scent, a thing which some people carry. And from the moment they found the bomb, the security officials knew my mother had nothing to do with it.
Daniel: What do you think, can we get a rain check for martyrdom?
Simon: I think that this idea we get, that if you get to know someone, if you humanize them, it stops you from pulling the trigger or setting off the bomb or whatever, well that's just a myth we're taught, something we get from the movies. When the reality might be that's what actually inspires extreme action.
