C: Go to him, Vincent. He needs you.|
C: What do you think happened?
V: Nothing... happened. I know that.
V: You must leave.
V: Leave now!
C: Why do you want me to leave?
V: Because what I'm feeling, my thoughts... shame me.
C: Tell me. Tell me what you feel.
V: You mustn't see me like this.
C: Please don't send me away.
V: My thoughts poison me.|
C: Tell me these thoughts.
V: What you shared... I envy.
V: I betrayed Michael. I betrayed you, everything I hold dear.
C: How did you betray us?
V: I know what it is to love you, Catherine. I love Michael like... like a brother, like a son. But his life's been in such a struggle. He needed to be healed by your tenderness. Yet, I was unwilling to share your love with anyone.
C: Don't be ashamed of those feelings.
V: It violates everything I believe.
C: Don't you think I have those feelings, too? Sometimes I envy Father and others in your life who receive your love and your care everyday. I know those feelings. They are ugly. But all of those feelings come from love. They are the other side of it. To turn away from them is to forget where they come from.
V: Catherine, the better part of me would've rejoiced to see you find love with someone as fine and as good as Michael. You have so much love to give.|
C: Because of you.
V: What we share must always be so measured, so limited.
C: We don't know what the limits are.
V: You deserve a life without limits.
C: There's no life without limits! Vincent, if this is my fate, I accept it gratefully. You must believe that. Don't be afraid to want it, even only for yourself. Don't be afraid to deserve it. You deserve everything.
C: The lights are so beautiful tonight.|
