Francis: You're free to do as you please.
Mary: I don't understand. What's changed?
Francis: I cannot bear to see you in pain, and I will not be the cause of anymore suffering, even if your pain results from being kept from another man whom you desire.
Francis: It's best that you don't interrupt. This is not easy or pleasant and I'm not even sure it's wise. But if you sincerely believe that your best path to healing is at his side, I will not stand in your way.
