: John… I have to ask you something very important now.
: I know what you gonna say. You don’t have to say it.
: No. I do. I do have to say it. John… tell me what you want me to do. You want me to take you out from here? Just let you run away? See how far you can get?
: Why would you do such a foolish thing?
: On the day of my judgement, when I stand before God and he asks me why did I kill one of his true miracles… what am I going to say? That it was my job? My job…
: You tell God the father it was a kindeness you done. I know you hurtin’ and worrin’. I can feel it on you. But you oughta quit on it now. I want it to be done and over with it. I do. I’m tired boss. I’m tired of bein’ on the road, lonely as a sparrow in the rain. I’m tired of me havin’ no buddy to be with, to tell me where we’s goint to, coming from or why. Mostly I’m tired of pople bein ugly to each other. I’m tired of feel and hear all over the world. There’s too much of it. It’s like pieces of glass in my head all the time. Can you understand?
: Yes, John. I think I can.

The Dark Knight
If Penny didn’t know that Leslie had already turned me down, then that would unambiguously mean that she, Penny, thought I should ask her, Leslie, out, indicating that she, Penny, had no interest in me asking her, Penny, out; but because she did know that I had asked Leslie out, and that she, Leslie, had turned me down, then she, Penny, could be offering me consolation – “That’s too bad, you would have made a cute couple…” – while thinking, “good, Leonard remains available.”
: You’re a lucky man, Leonard.
: How so?
: You’re talking to one of the three men in the Western Hemisphere capable of following that train of thought.
: Well, what do you think?
: I said I could follow it, I didn’t say I cared.
