"I’ve just understood something. You see, every time I’ve looked at you here on the boat it wasn’t only here I saw you. You seem to go way back. I know that isn’t clear, but I…I saw you here at the same time further away and then still further away and then very small like converging perspective lines. No…that isn’t it. It’s like…like people following each other in a forest glade, only way back there you’re a little girl with short dresses and your hair falling to your shoulders and a little boy standing with you holding your hand. In the middle distance I’m still with you, not holding your hand anymore because that isn’t manly, but wanting to. And then still further we look terrible with you with your legs like a colt and mine like a calf. What I’m trying to say is…only I’m not a poet I’m an ophiologist…I’ve always loved you. I mean I’ve never loved anyone but you."
— Henry Fonda, The Lady Eve (1941)
