About Honorable Men

an excerpt from a script.

MOM: so do you think she really loved him?
BEST FRIEND: i think she loved him the best she knew how.
MOM: and that would not have been enough for you either?
FRIEND: no. it wouldn't have been enough for me either.
MOM: so you would have ended it too?
FRIEND: well, he and i are built differently. he's stronger than i am. he was strong enough to um... uh, we're not built the same
MOM: honorable men are all built the same.
BEST FRIEND: and you think i'm an honorable man?
MOM: do you know when to walk away? do you know when not to take less than you deserve? if you do, then you are an honorable man.
