David: To behave consistently and reasonably is the gift. If someone comes up to me and says I’m their cousin with one arm – that’s not a gift. That doesn’t have anything to do with anything.
TJ: It’s like, “Sister Theresa, everyone here at the convent has heard about your abortion.”
David: Yeah. That’s not a gift. That’s a sentence I have to serve.
