Your move, chief.

Sean Maguire: Thought about what you said to me the other day, about my painting. Stayed up half the night thinking about it. Something occurred to me… fell into a deep peaceful sleep, and haven’t thought about you since. Do you know what occurred to me?
Will Hunting: No.
Sean Maguire: You’re just a kid, you don’t have the faintest idea what you’re talkin’ about.
Will Hunting: Why thank you.
Sean Maguire: It’s all right. You’ve never been out of Boston.
Will Hunting: Nope.
Sean Maguire: So if I asked you about art, you’d probably give me the skinny on every art book ever written. Michelangelo, you know a lot about him. Life’s work, political aspirations, him and the pope, sexual orientations, the whole works, right? But I’ll bet you can’t tell me what it smells like in the Sistine Chapel. You’ve never actually stood there and looked up at that beautiful ceiling; seen that. If I ask you about women, you’d probably give me a syllabus about your personal favorites. You may have even been laid a few times. But you can’t tell me what it feels like to wake up next to a woman and feel truly happy. You’re a tough kid. And I’d ask you about war, you’d probably throw Shakespeare at me, right, „once more unto the breach dear friends.“ But you’ve never been near one. You’ve never held your best friend’s head in your lap, watch him gasp his last breath looking to you for help. I’d ask you about love, you’d probably quote me a sonnet. But you’ve never looked at a woman and been totally vulnerable. Known someone that could level you with her eyes, feeling like God put an angel on earth just for you. Who could rescue you from the depths of hell. And you wouldn’t know what it’s like to be her angel, to have that love for her, be there forever, through anything, through cancer. And you wouldn’t know about sleeping sitting up in the hospital room for two months, holding her hand, because the doctors could see in your eyes, that the terms „visiting hours“ don’t apply to you. You don’t know about real loss, ’cause it only occurs when you’ve loved something more than you love yourself. And I doubt you’ve ever dared to love anybody that much. And look at you… I don’t see an intelligent, confident man… I see a cocky, scared s**tless kid. But you’re a genius Will. No one denies that. No one could possibly understand the depths of you. But you presume to know everything about me because you saw a painting of mine, and you ripped my f***ing life apart. You’re an orphan right? [Will nods] You think I know the first thing about how hard your life has been, how you feel, who you are, because I read Oliver Twist? Does that encapsulate you? Personally… I don’t give a s**t about all that, because you know what, I can’t learn anything from you, I can’t read in some f***in’ book. Unless you want to talk about you, who you are. Then I’m fascinated. I’m in. But you don’t want to do that do you sport? You’re terrified of what you might say. Your move, chief.

Nikad nisi bio izvan Bostona

„Nikad nisi bio izvan Bostona.
Da sam te pitao nešto o umjetnosti, dao bi mi iscrpno izvjesce procitano iz knjiga.
Michelangelo. Znaš mnogo o njemu.
Životno djelo, politicke aspiracije, on i papa, seksualnu orijentaciju, sva djela.
Ali ne bi mi znao reci kako miriše u Sikstinskoj kapeli, nikad nisi tamo stajao i gledao taj divan plafon.
Vidio to.
Kad bih te pitao za žene, dao bi mi popis najdražih. Možda si i ševio par puta, ali ne možes mi reci kakav je osjecaj buditi se kraj žene i osjecati doista sretnim.
Da te pitam o ratu, nabacao bi mi se Shakespeareom.
„Jos jednom u obranu, prijatelji“.
Ali nisi bio ni blizu ratu.
Nikad nisi držao najboljeg prijatelja u krilu i gledao ga kako zadnjim dahom traži tvoju pomoc.
Da te pitam o ljubavi, citirao bi sonet, ali nikad nisi gledao u ženu i bio potpuno ranjiv, da ne znaš nikoga tko je ravan njenim ocima.
Kao da je Bog spustio andela na zemlju samo za tebe, koja ce te spasiti pakla, ne znaš kako je to biti njen andeo. Voljeti je. Proci s njom sve. I rak. Ne znaš kako je spavati u stolici 2 mjeseca u bolnici jer doktori vide u tvojim ocima da se vrijeme posjeta ne odnosi na tebe.
Ne znaš što je pravi gubitak. To se dogada samo kad nešto voliš više od sebe. Sumnjam da si ikad ikoga toliko volio…“
