Dr. Chen: You could let go. No one blames you, Eli. No one's angry. They're sad and they'll hurt. They'll hurt for a long time but the world will go on without you, Eli. The world doesn't need Eli Stone unless...
Eli: Unless? I have...
Dr. Chen: You could say it Eli, it's okay. I'm sure it's nice for Him to hear.

Eli: You're afraid I'm going to die.

Ms. Klein's problem with Mr. Stone isn't that he is eccentric, it's that he applies his considerable talents to underdogs and individuals, instead of conglomerates and CEOs. He reminds us that in business there is still room for humanity, that capitalism without mercy is tantamount to evil--he reminds us of the best parts of ourselves. Yes, I have protected Eli Stone, because I believe this firm needs Eli Stone; I believe that every firm, every company, everyone...needs an Eli Stone.
