Father Mickey: Tom, I, uh, I don't know what you want me to say.
Tommy: Mick... I want you to say that it's all... it's bullshit. You know? There is no plan, there is no map. There's no golden ring at the end of the ride. It's just... bullshit. You know? (sighs) I want you to take away the hope, man, that's the thing that's killing me. You know,it's just... it's like, uh... I'm just hanging here, man. Hope is making me think I can fix my marriage, you know? The day of Jimmy's funeral... you stood up on that altar and you said, "Sometimes we don't know why God does the things that he does." But I'm telling you... Mick... if he takes my little girl tonight... I'm going to want to know why.
Father Mickey: That's why you got to hold on to the hope, Tom. 'Cause in the end, that's all we got left.
Lt. Shea: Jesus, it's true what they say: Three-ways, like youth, are wasted on the young.
