After what we’ve been through it would be very easy to give up, to lose hope. But not here, not today. This is more than a ship, Chief, this is an act of faith. It is proof that despite all we’ve lost we keep trying and we will get through this, all of us, together. I promise.

Doyle: The good fight yeah? You never know till you’ve been tested. I get that now.
Cordelia: Doyle pissed me off so righteously going out like that. But he knew. Knew what he had to do, didn’t even compromise. Used his last breath to make sure you’d keep fighting. I get that now.
“So you’re telling me after 21 years at this label, if I don’t… open for your little ingénue who wouldn’t even make it as one of my back-up singers, that you’re not going to support me? Well you can kiss my decision as I’m walking out the door.”

I’ve had to say goodbye more times than I would have liked, but everyone can say that. And no matter how many times we do it, even when it’s for the greater good, it still stings. And though we’ll never forget what we’ve given up, we owe it to ourselves to keep moving forward. What we can’t do, is live our lives always afraid of the next goodbye. Because, chances are, they’re not going to stop. The trick is to recognize when a goodbye can be a good thing. When it’s a chance to start again.
