"That's what faith is Eli, belief in the absence of proof."
"I keep waiting for some small confirmation that there is a God.. that I haven't just destroyed my life for nothing."
"Are you gonna stand there and tell me there was more meaning in your paycheck then in the people you've helped lately? Could you have done any of that without faith?"
"I did all without faith, I did it with, with my law license. The one I pissed on yesterday."
"What about all the things you've learned about yourself? You're- you're father, me. Was that all some coincidence?"
"If that is proof that God is behind everything that's happening to me then it also means that he wanted me to hurt the people who loved me the most. That he wanted me to break their hearts. Break the law. He wanted me to force people out of their homes. I'm sorry man, that is not any kind of God I want to believe in."
"I know how hard this is for-"
"You can't even begin to know! None of this is real, none of this is because of God. It's been my aneurysm the whole damn time and it's gonna stop. I'm gonna find a surgeon and I'm going to get this thing out of my head as soon as possible."
"Eli that surgery could kill you."
"If I don't get it out now I- I won't have anything left to live for anyway."
