Robert: When I think of why I make pictures, the reason that I can come up with just seems that I've been making my way here. It seems right now that all I've ever done in my life is making my way here to you.
Francesca: They came home. And with them, my life of details.
Francesa: I was just going to have some iced tea and split the atom, but that can wait.
Francesca: I realized love won't obey our expectations, it's mystery is pure and absolute.
Robert: If you want me to stop, tell me now.
Francesca: No one's asking you to.
Francesca: I had thoughts about him I hardly knew what to do with, and he read every one. Whatever I wanted, he gave himself up to, and in that moment everything I knew to be true about myself was gone. I was acting like another woman, yet I was more myself than ever before.
Robert: The old dreams were good dreams; they didn't work out, but glad I had them.
Francesca: And in that moment, everything I knew to be true about myself up until then was gone. I was acting like another woman, yet I was more myself than ever before.
Robert Kincaid: I don't want to need you, 'cause I can't have you.
Francesca: But love won't obey our expectations. Its mystery is pure and absolute. What Robert and I had, could not continue if we were together. What Richard and I shared would vanish if we were apart. But how I wanted to share this. How would our lives have changed if I had? Could anyone else have seen the beauty of it?
