s1x4

You remind me of this girl, a girl from my neighborhood growing up. She was smart, she was funny, she was beautiful. And then she got married… real young to this guy who beat the crap out of her. The thing about Shelley was that she’s such a tough cookie, that it took us, I don’t know, two years to figure it out. Two years… before I realized why she wore turtlenecks in the summer. Before I figured out why she’s always looking so scared. Two years before I could help her get out of that marriage, before anyone could help her get away. And you know what? If I’d been given half a chance, I would have killed him.

Kevin ‘Wordy’ Wordsworth: No, you know what Shelley taught me?
Ed Lane: No, Wordy, what’d your wife teach ya?
Kevin 'Wordy’ Wordsworth: Don’t be a victim, don’t be a perpetrator, and above all, don’t be a bystander.
