Marry the person your heart cries out for. And when you have that person, do not doubt them. Not for a single moment.
"You’re still the chief of police."
"What’s it worth? You’ve never left me out there. Not for one day!"
"You know you have to do this."
"No, I don’t. You’re still my subordinate, so you listen to me. We have spent eight long years putting our lives in each other’s hands. I have watched you fight, I have watched you almost die."
"But you didn’t let me."
"That’s a two-way street. I never would’ve gotten here without you. You have been so much more than a partner. You’re my confidant. You have shown me immeasurable patience and loyalty. You are very important to me, Juliet. And I don’t always do a really great job of letting you know that. So I’m telling you now. You deserve to be this department’s head detective just as much as I deserve to be its chief. And I am not going to do that without you, so I made my decision.”
"Me too. You inspire me, partner. Always have. You’ve believed in me since day one, you’ve given me courage and strength, and taught me accountability and how to rash my M.O. in the event of nuclear holocaust."
"You’re welcome for that."
"You have a family to think about now. It’s time to turn the page, Carlton. And you know what, just knowing you’d make that sacrifice for me gives me all the clarity I need."
"What the hell are you talking about?"
"Everything happens for a reason."
Time passes in moments … moments which, rushing past define the path of a life just as surely as they lead towards its end. How rarely do we stop to examine that path, to see the reasons why all things happen, to consider whether the path we take in life is our own making or simply one into which we drift with eyes closed. But what if we could stop, pause to take stock of each precious moment before it passes? Might we then see the endless forks in the road that have shaped a life? And, seeing those choices, choose another path?

I feel like doing Macbeth is hugely ambitious, but there are those who would say that if I were truly ambitious I’d have moved to LA five years ago and tried to become Leonardo Dicaprio or Russell Crowe. I don’t know. I do want that. I do want to secure my place within the industry and be making films ten, twenty years from now. But i also want to be happy. »
