Brian Jackson:
I admit it. I'd made some mistakes. Okay, some big mistakes. Loads of them. But you can't hide in your room forever feeling sorry for yourself. It's not practical. At some point, you've got to get back out there, face up to things, and confront your demons. Ever since I can remember, I'd wanted to be clever. Some people are born clever, same way some people are born beautiful. I'm not one of those people. I'm going to have to work at it, put in the effort, and if I mess it up, I'll learn from it. Besides, sometimes it's not about knowing the right answer. Sometimes it's about asking the right questions.

Transcript:
I admit it. I've made some
mistakes. Okay, some big mistakes.
Loads of them.
But you can't hide in your room
forever feeling sorry for yourself.
It's not practical.
At some point you've got to get
back out there, face up to things,
and confront your demons.
Well, well. Mr Jackson.
Could this possibly mean you're back?
Yes, if...
So, we'll see you tomorrow, then.
Thank you, Doctor.
And yes, I've made some
bad choices, lost my head.
Let people down. People I care for.
But there still might be
time to get something right.
You came back.
Oh, I'm so glad you came.
Now listen, you mustn't worry about
what people are going to say, okay?
So you made a silly
mistake. But the thing is...
Can I just stop you there for a minute, Alice?
I'm sorry, but I'm looking for someone else.
Ever since I can remember,
I've wanted to be clever.
Some people are born clever the same
way some people are born beautiful.
I'm not one of those people.
I'm gonna have to work at it.
Put in the effort. And if I
mess it up, I'll learn from it.
Besides, sometimes it's not
about knowing the right answer.
Sometimes it's about
asking the right question.
We want the money spent on
nuclear weapons to be brought
into our health system.
Our nurseries and schools.
Our universities.
What do we want?
Nukes out.
