I saw then that my father's only fear was that his son would follow the same road. And that was the last time I ever held a gun. People always thought I grew up on a farm. And I guess, in a way, I did. But I lived a lifetime before that, in those six weeks on the road in the winter of 1931. When people ask me if Michael Sullivan was a good man, or if there was just no good in him at all, I always give the same answer. I just tell them... he was my father.
Michael Sullivan: You remember your Aunt Sarah? Your mom's sister? She lives in Perdition. She'll take you in.
Michael Sullivan, Jr.: Where is it?
Michael Sullivan: Right by the lake. We went there once, all of us, when you were four, maybe five. It's beautiful. You remember?
Michael Sullivan, Jr.: The place with the dog.
