RONNY: Loretta, I love you. Not like they told you love is and I didn't know this either. But love don't make things nice, it ruins everything, it
breaks your heart, it makes things a mess. We're not here to make things perfect. Snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. We are here to ruin ourselves and break our hearts and love the wrong people and die!
