It's a funny thing about comin' home. Looks the same, smells the same, feels the same. You'll realize what's changed is you.

Daisy: Will you sleep with me?
Benjamin Button: Absolutely.

Daisy: Would you still love me if I were old and saggy?

Your life is defined by its opportunities... even the ones you miss.
