"See, that ending would have been interesting. And it would have left you questioning the nature of the relationship, especially given the cat-and-mouse thing that had been going on. Instead, you just get a neat little package. And while I kind of like neat little packages in real life, especially these days?"

"I like that element of uncertainty in my movies. The hand at the end of the original Friday the 13th. Or Carrie, for that matter.
