    "Boy, some partner I picked."
    "You didn't pick me, I picked you."
    "Why?"
    "Because you gave me your last match. You made me laugh."

    Heartbreaking and heartwarming at the very same time. Hackman and Pacino at the top of their game.

    The symbolism of the lamp and giving someone your last match is very poignant. To what extent are we willing to sacrifice our own light and warmth for other people's happiness because we care for them? At what point does our own light begin to be depleted if we're not too careful?
