Spot White: Life didn't mean a thing to me till I met you; now it means everything. There isn't anything in it that isn't you. That's why... sometimes I'm afraid of the future, afraid that I may lose you.

Remember, no matter what happens, I want you to promise you'll keep your chin up. Promise? Always keep your chin up.
