“I used to be married on the time. [Ross and I] have been working collectively and it simply occurred. Nevertheless it was stunning. She’s an exquisite woman, and I really like her proper until at the moment. She’s one in every of my closest folks.”

“If we may management love, no person would love anyone. No person would take that probability. Why would you set your coronary heart on the market for someone to have the ability to harm you want that and make you capable of have these emotions?”
Wow, that’s fairly deep there, Smokey! The opposite possibility, after all, is that he obtained the hots for one more girl and cheated…
