Quotes

[first lines]

William Banks: [voiceover] People do a whole lot of things in the name of love, more than I ever thought possible. When we first made this deal, you and me, I remember thinking about that, about love. I never really felt it, even when it was offered to me, because I knew I didn't deserve it, so I could never understand it. A pastor I know, one of the better ones, he pointed me toward a verse in the Old Testament, it went something like this: There are three things that amaze me, no, there are four things that I don't understand. The way of an eagle in the sky. The way of a ship at sea. The way of a serpent on a rock. And the way a man loves a woman. And once I got clean, I understood them all: the eagle, the ship, and even the man and the woman. But what I knew best, what I knew from my gut, was the way of that serpent. And how he can destroy even the most beautiful love of all.

[last lines]

William Banks: [voiceover] There are four things that amaze me, even though now I finally think I've begun to understand them. In fact, it's the very fact that I understand them that makes them so amazing. The way of an eagle in the sky. The way of a ship at sea. The way of a serpent on a rock. And the way a man loves a woman. And for me, there's a fifth thing, more amazing than the eagle, more inspiring than the ship, more potent than the serpent, and even more beautiful than the man and the woman. It's the way of the family, because without them, there's nothing worth loving.

William Banks: People do a whole lot of things in the name of love, more than I ever thought possible. When we first made this deal, you and me. I remember thinking about that- about love. I never really felt it, even when it was offered to me because I knew I didn't deserve it, so I could never understand it. A pastor I know, one of the better ones, he pointed me toward a verse in the old testament. Went something like this- There are three things that amaze me. No, four things that I'll never understand. The way of an eagle in the sky, the way of a serpent on a rock, the way of a ship at sea, and the way a man loves a woman. And once I got clean I understood all of them. The eagle, the ship, even the man and the woman. But what I knew best. What I knew from my gut was the way of that serpent and how he can destroy the most beautiful love of all.
