Nick: I’m absolutely crazy about you. I can’t stop thinking about you, you’re always in my mind, you’re in my heart, you’re in every fucking beat of me. But I can’t go there with you. I can’t do it.

Sarah: (in a letter Nick is reading) I hope when you’re reading this letter, that I’m sitting there next to you and you’re telling me that I’m stupid for writing it, and crazy for trying to find you. But how could I not? It’s you. All this time, so many years apart. I’ve missed you. But I have never been without you. I’ve woken up with you every morning, and gone to sleep with you every night. You have always been with me. Your courage, your smile… your damn stubborness. There has never been any distance between us, and there never will be. I love you Nick. I love you.

Sarah: (To Nick) I’m worried about you. Here. I’m worried that something’s going to happen to you. Everyday, for four years, every morning, I wake up and wonder if you’re okay, where you are, if you’re still alive… (he kisses her)

Sarah: I believe the British call it a olitical irony?Elliot: Yeah well, Nick calls it a clusterfuck. But that’s Nick, not one to mince his words.

Sarah: I wonder, do we all know where we belong? And if we do, in our hearts, why do we so often do nothing about it? There must be more to this life. A purpose for us all. A place to belong. You were my home. I knew from the moment I first met you, that night, so many years ago…

Sarah: Perhaps we are all refugee’s from something. But I see now there is nothing to fear, that the world we hold onto, the lives we cherish, are a part of something greater, something more. It took me a lifetime to realise; we only have one heart, and we must be true to it.

Just have the cold?Sarah: NoNick: No, and that’s us, right? We drown it. Kill it. Numb it, anything not to feel. You know, when I was a doctor in London, no one ever said ‘medahani’. They don’t thank you like they thank you here. Cos here they feel everything, straight from God. There’s no drugs, no painkillers. It’s the weirdest, purest thing – suffering. And when you’ve seen that kind of courage in a li… (pauses, tears well up) …in a child…(pauses again) How could you ever waqnt to do anything but just hold him in your arms? (another pause) You remember that boy in London, JoJo?Sarah: Yes of courseNick: He was my first save, 10 years old. So thin he could barely stand. But he still found the strength the bury the rest of his family. We have no idea what courage is… He used to write me little notes. He helped me in the clinic. He was good. He was sweet, he was good. He wanted to be like me, I liekd that. I mean, it was silly and childish, but it made me feel good about myself. So I took him with me to London, you know, my talisman, my courageous Africa… (pauses) How could I be so bloody stupid? How could I be so totally selfish? (pauses again) The point is… he was my friend. He had a name. So now I HAVE to remember him. (looks at Sarah) If everybody I lose has a name…
