Quotes José Mujica: What do you think they are? Nuns in a charity?
Lucy: Shut up! Shut up! Listen to me! I'm the one you have to listen to! I'm your mother. They want to drive you crazy. You can't let them. Do you understand?
José Mujica: Mom...
Lucy: Mom my ass! Listen to me. Listen to what I have to say. You have to resist. Resist any way you can, no matter what happens. Resist and don't let them kill you.
José Mujica: I don't know what to do.
Lucy: Yes, you do. The only defeated are the ones who stop fighting. You'll get through this and move on. And nobody... Nobody will take what you have inside.
