Jack Foley: It’s like seeing someone for the first time — you can be passing on the street — and you look at each other and for a few seconds, there’s a kind of a. . .a recognition.

What if I had said something? What if? What if?” It may only happen a few times in your life.
Karen Sisco: Or once.
Jack Foley: Or once.
