I'm not doing very well.


You're not okay because my name's not Grace. It's Elizabeth.


Red: I want you to promise me something
Liz: What?
Red: I want you to grieve.

Imagining what I'm going to do to Tom's killers is the only thing that gets me up in the morning.

I warned you about this damn suitcase. Now, look at you.

Red [To Tom]

Red: Ever wonder why Dembe stays with me? Why anyone so decent would spend his days at the side of someone so indecent?
Liz: You saved him. He owes you his life. He protects you because you protected him.
Red: No, Elizabeth. Dembe didn't stay with me because he saw me as his savior. He stayed with me because he saw me for the man I really was. A man surrounded by darkness. No friends who could be trusted. No faith that loyalty or love could truly exist. I was younger then. Angrier. Dembe connected his life with mine to show me that day and every day that the world is not what I fear it to be. He is the light in the darkness. Living proof that there is another way. That life can be good. That people can be kind. That a man like me may one day dream of becoming a man like him. He pledged his life and offered it up as evidence that I was wrong about this world. Dembe guards my life because he's determined to save my soul.

Whatever happens, we do it together.


Dembe: If something goes wrong.
Red: It won't.
Dembe: If it does?
Red: I will look after your family.
Dembe: I know you will, but my concern is who will look after you.

I know what it feels like to be seen as less than human, a thing transported for money. You saved me from that which is why I know you'll want me to try and save others.
