"I was the recipient of some just... awful advice. It was well-intentioned but ah... completely unfitting for me. Julianne... I feel like every relationship or, or, pairing is unique, you know? I look at Rodney and Lorraine
and what they went through to be together and I realize that the only advice I should have heeded is Alfred Lord Tennyson's. Because I think it is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all. And I just want to tell you... that I love you. You donít have to say anything. But if you did, if you did feel the same way, or if, um, if you felt like some day in the future you might feel the same way, just walk by my desk, when Iím sitting, and, ah, put this number 2 pencil down in front of me. Then I'll know. Or don't, I mean, whatever makes you feel more comfortable. But I needed to say what I just said. And I'm glad that I did."
