Jim Robinson: Twenty-five years and you still haven't learned.
Paul: Oh God am I... am I?
Jim: No you're not dead
Paul: What the... Dad, how are you here? You know I am huh, [exasperated] It's so good to see you dad. I missed you so much.
Jim: I tried to teach you right from wrong son, but no, you always had a mind of your own.
Paul: Oh Dad I know it looks bad.
Jim: You killed a man once before.
Paul: I was sick, Dad, I had a brain tumor.
Jim: And what's your excuse this time? Tossing your enemies into the bush? Covering your tracks?
Paul: I didn't do this for me, Dad, I did this for my own son, Leo. That's right you never met him, or his brother David. They're good kids. Really good kids. Oh and Amy, she's back in my life too.

Paul: But I want to change.
Jim: Do you?
Paul: Yeah, yeah, I do. And now, I have a real chance now with Jane.
Jim: Ah, the lovely Jane.
Paul: Yes, she wants a future with me, but if I go to jail, she will be gone, and I will lose everything.She said that you'd be proud of me Dad but you know what? Not proud of anything I've done.
Jim: It's never too late to be the man you want to be, son.
Paul: [sees bauble image fade] Dad? Dad, don't go!
