"dr. graham, i’m dr. jack crawford."
"i see you’ve hitched your horse to a teaching position."
"people don’t want a sick doctor."
"fair enough, i don’t want healthy patients. i’m looking for a new head doctor of diagnostic medicine."
"that’s not a real department—"
"it can be, if you’re interested."
It’s taken me so many years, so many lifetimes, but at last I know where I’m going. Where I’ve always been going.
”I think the burden of taking his people back to their homeland, which is so massive, makes him a lonely figure, I think. Knowing that his grandfather failed, and his father failed, so if he doesn’t do it, there’s no other member of his line that will ever do this. So he will continue through history as the king that failed to achieve the potential for his people. That’s something, again, which is a huge burden to carry. And I think that’s what drives him, but it’s also the thing that he fears, that he will fail.” — RA

I want every version of a woman and a man to be possible. I want women and men to be able to be full-time parents or full-time working people or any combination of the two. I want both to be able to do whatever they want sexually without being called names. I want them to be allowed to be weak and strong and happy and sad — human, basically. The fallacy in Hollywood is that if you’re making a “feminist” story, the woman kicks ass and wins. That’s not feminist, that’s macho. -Natalie Portman
