The same way you might look at your leg cut off at the knee and not feel anything at first, maybe this is just shock.
But I hope not.
I don't want it to wear off.
I pray not to feel anything ever again.
Because if it wears off, this is all going to hurt so much. This is going to hurt for the rest of my life.
Chuck Palahniuk

Well he once killed a man with a guitar string
He's been seen at the table with kings
Well he once saved a baby from drowning
There are those who say beneath his coat there are wings

What's he good at?

Tailor: Sam's mother was a tailor and though he was never all that interested, he learned more than a few things from her. As he got on in life, he returned to his old hobby and developed a considerable respect for the trade. As an assistant to a professional, he's learned quite a bit and is now a capable maker of fine Italian suits.

Trivia and Notes:

  • Sam can't do an Irish accent at all. Don't even ask.
  • For the role of Sam, Brad Pitt actually learned to sew. Unfortunately, he was terrible at it and kept making his planned projects many sizes too small. As such, he decided to adopt just a whole ton of kids to wear his outfits, then pretended like he'd meant to do it the whole time.
