Brick Wall

Me: You can do this. You've done it before, you survived. You can do it again. You just gotta be a brick wall.
Her: What does that mean?
Me: Two things. First, a brick wall doesn't cry, it doesn't beg, it doesn't plead, it doesn't do anything. It just is. A brick wall does what it's supposed to do - without compunction, without complaint, without contempt. A brick wall's built for pressure; you're built for pressure.
Her: And second?
Me: Second is it doesn't give anything away. you can read a face, you can't read a brick wall. Keep it together. People're relying on you. You're relying on you. Don't ever let him break you down. A brick wall doesn't break; everything else breaks against it.
Her: (quizzically) I'ma brick wall?
Me: Yeah, you're a goddamned brick wall.
Her: (deep breath) I'm a brick wall.
Me: You're stone.

Music: the only one here now is me; I'm fighting things I cannot see
