This watch belonged to my father. It’s broken now, but it used to keep perfect time. And when he gave it to me, he said, “You could set your heart by this watch.” It stopped October 1st, the day we met.
OK, listen to me. There’s something you need to know. When you first walked into my office, with that stupid, bozo hair, I thought you were crazy. I mean, I actually thought you might have been a crazy person. But I watched you and I read your statement. I’ve seen how you think, I’ve seen how you work. I’ve seen who you are. In this job, you see darkness. You see the worst in people. And though the jobs are different and the missions change and the enemies have a thousand names… the one crucial thing, the one real responsibility you have, is to not let your rage and your resentment and your disgust darken you. When you’re at your absolute lowest, at your most depressed, just remember that you can always… you know… you got my number.
