Quotes

Dr. Robert Ford: [Closing monologue] Good evening. Since I was a child... I always loved a good story. I believed that stories helped us to ennoble ourselves, to fix what was broken in us, and to help us become the people we dreamed of being. Lies that told a deeper truth.

"The Bicameral Mind" is one episode of "Westworld" where it is impossible to write any sinnopsys without producing "spoilers". The identity of the Man in Black is finally disclosed in a great twist. Dolores learning the fate of William is heartbreaking. Dr. Ford saying "An old friend once told me something that gave me great comfort. Something he read. He said Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin never died. They simply became music" is one of the most beautiful lines in a film or show. My vote is ten.
