  • Ask yourself this. If you never really cared about anyone or anything, then were you ever really alive?


October: You're judging me? You're so much better. Would you kill me if someone offered you enough money?
Vincent: What do you want?
October: Nothing.
Vincent: People choose their death when they choose how they live.
October: Does that let you sleep at night?
Vincent: I sleep fine. I'm a weapon, I don't choose where I'm pointed.
October: Of course, you just follow orders.
Vincent: I'm no different than a doctor or a waiter, I serve a function.
October: I get it. I'm in the service industry too!
Vincent: You calling me a whore?
October: A service provider! ... Actually I'm nothing like you. I don't have a choice. I have nothing and no one. You have money, power. You can get out of the life any time you want. You choose not to.

October: Do you ever pray?
Vincent: Been a long time, no one answered, I gave up.
October: That's sad.
Vincent: Where I come from priests and crooks, they all the same.
October: Do you dream?
Vincent: No.
October: Ever think about your future?
Vincent: No. It will come soon enough, and you?
October: I just want out, out of the city, out of the life, with someone I can trust.
Vincent: Trust to do what?
October: Light a candle for me when I'm gone.
