NAOMI: That's a book rather than a letter.
PAUL: You know, I just want what's best for my son. I want him to love and I want him to be loved. And I want him to be a really good cousin to Lucy's baby.

She knows what he means, she's barely made a single friend at Uni, and the head of the law society probably thinks she's a loser because she hasn't been skiing at Steamboat.

PAUL: Don't you go getting sentimental on me. Naomi, you are tough as old boots, now come on, you're stronger than you know.
