This from Luke yesterday:
I remember the first day your grandmother brought you to live with me. A pissed off teenager spewing sarcasm, reeking of attitude, just like me.
We were so much alike, stubborn, cynical, couldn’t have any patience for fools or hypocrites. We went through some dark times together. You stood by me when no one else would.
It took my demon, my past, my enemy to do this to you. To drag you here, put you through this hell. I am your father, it was my responsibility to protect you and I failed. I failed you. I am so sorry. Forgive me cupcake.
And from Dante:
"What am I going to do without you?
We were supposed to go everywhere together
I remember when I first met you at Jakes. You were over at the juke box, probably putting on some terrible music.
And then we played some pool together, and you kicked my butt. Right before your brothers kicked my butt for trying to pick you up.
I knew right then that was the start of something amazing. That you were way, way too good for me.
I saw you that night on the pier. And you were stoned, but you were so funny and so beautiful. Everything that came across your mind you just said it out loud.
When you kissed me that night I already knew I was in love with you.
You were the one. I know I said that, but I don’t think you believed me. You were the one. The one I just couldn’t live without. And now you’re not here.
I will always love you, and that promise, that promise, I can keep."
I think these words are burned into my mind. I've watched those scenes over and over so much. Just can't let go of it.
I do indeed think that was Dom's farewell to Julie.
Emmy worthy, absolutely, for both Tony and Dom.
