About something like this.
Yes, i loved a serial killer.
I mean, it sounds so awful but he was a big part of my adolescence and he was my friend.
>> did you find yourself mourning his passing or -- >> i found myself mourning the friend that i knew and i had a very hard time accepting what he had done.
>> have you spent any time wondering what he was about?
I don't care.
I'll be honest, i'm going to cut you short on that one.
>> i don't care.
And put it this way, he's a footnote in history.
Just one more person with a gun.
So -- screw you.
You get nothing.
>> hall rubenstein would rather talk about his friend gianni, what he taught him about life.
>> if you're going to still be here, don't sit here with one foot in the back door waiting to stop.
No, no, you grab life as long as you get the chance and you grab it to yourself and you make the most out of it.
