Dewey: Now there’s no way to feel better. Now I have to feel bad [that his grandmother lost her leg saving him]
Hal: Dewey, maybe you can try and see it this way. Your grandmother, she is the most horrible woman who ever lived. But, even she understands the difference between a life that’s been lived and a life with potential. You wanna pay her back? Live up to that potential. And if you think about it, you might have done her a big favour. Let’s face it. Saving your life is her only chance of her getting into heaven. Which, isn’t going to make you that popular in heaven. But we’ll deal with that later.
