--Franklin Nelson (Earth-616)
Quote1 The truth is that you don't keep secrets to shield anyone but you. You think it's okay because you've convinced yourself that keeping secrets is a brave and noble act. Stop thinking that. It's not true. That's not your ammunition, Matty. When you were a kid, you got blinded just trying to help an old man across the street. That wasn't fair. Ever since then, you've devoted your life to balancing those scales. To making the world a fairer place for everyone else despite the fact that it is a vast, random entity of incomrephensible power. You get up every morning and you fight an unjust universe because you think you can make a dent. That is exactly the level of arrogance Kirsten and I will always trust to protect us. Quote2
--Franklin Nelson (Earth-616)
Quote1 And that is what's like to live in the orbit of Matt Murdock. He will confound you. He will frustrate you. He will make your choices FOR you, he will manipulte you without CONSULTING you, and you will want to PUNCH him in his self-assured face at least ONCE AN HOUR. He will make you wonder EVERYTHING SINGLE DAY why you ever put up with him, because the Devil is FULL OF TRICKS. But he will care about you in a way that no one else could. When it comes down to it, I guess I don't really need the world to know I exist. I'm just glad HE knows. Quote2
--Franklin Nelson (Earth-616)
Quote1 This is the last time I help you. Never again. Matt. Quote2
--Franklin Nelson (Earth-616)
Quote1 Right, he's charging people admission to gawk at the thing. Charming. And, incidentally, about the most New York thing I've ever heard. Quote2

You know what you are guilty of? Of not loving Heather as much as she loved you! You really couldn't help that, Matt. You really couldn't!

Maybe not. But still, she's dead... And in some way, I'm responsible. It's my fault.

Go back to the previous question. What do you mean, if there's time?
Conversation Tail
Franklin Nelson (Earth-616)
Foggy Nelson
Matty, I wasn't fair to you, either. I think the reason I was so angry that you might not be dealing with your problems honestly and with courage is because I... I need that from you right now. I need you to be the one who can teach me how to do all that.
