GWH - 2

SEAN: Do you have a soul-mate?

WILL : Define that.

SEAN: Someone who challenges you in every way. Who takes you places, opens things up for you. A soul-mate.

WILL : Yeah.

Sean waits.

WILL (cont'd) : Shakespeare, Neitzche, Frost, O'Connor, Chaucer, Pope, Kant--

SEAN: They're all dead.

WILL: Not to me, they're not.

SEAN: But you can't give back to them, Will.

WILL: Not without a heater and some serious smelling salts, no...

SEAN: That's what I'm saying, Will. You'll never have that kind of relationship in a world where you're afraid to take the first step because all you're seeing are the negative things that might happen ten miles down the road.

Yep. Fantastic dialogue. Couldn't imagine that dope Ben Afleck capable of writing something like this.
