And before you know it, your heart is worn out, and, as for your body, there comes a point when no one looks at it, much less wants to come near it. Right now, there's sorrow, pain. Don't kill it and with it the joy you've felt.

    • Mr. Perlman: Ah... he was more than intelligent. What you two had, had everything and nothing to do with intelligence. He was good, and you were both lucky to have found each other, because... you too are good.
    • Elio: I think he was better than mine, I think he was better than me.
    • Mr. Perlman: I'm sure he'd say the same thing about you, which flatters you both.
