--Franklin Nelson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png And that is what's like to live in the orbit of Matt Murdock. He will confound you. He will frustrate you. He will make your choices FOR you, he will manipulte you without CONSULTING you, and you will want to PUNCH him in his self-assured face at least ONCE AN HOUR. He will make you wonder EVERYTHING SINGLE DAY why you ever put up with him, because the Devil is FULL OF TRICKS. But he will care about you in a way that no one else could. When it comes down to it, I guess I don't really need the world to know I exist. I'm just glad HE knows. Quote2.png
--Franklin Nelson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png The truth is that you don't keep secrets to shield anyone but you. You think it's okay because you've convinced yourself that keeping secrets is a brave and noble act. Stop thinking that. It's not true. That's not your ammunition, Matty. When you were a kid, you got blinded just trying to help an old man across the street. That wasn't fair. Ever since then, you've devoted your life to balancing those scales. To making the world a fairer place for everyone else despite the fact that it is a vast, random entity of incomrephensible power. You get up every morning and you fight an unjust universe because you think you can make a dent. That is exactly the level of arrogance Kirsten and I will always trust to protect us. Quote2.png
--Franklin Nelson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png This is the last time I help you. Never again. Matt. Quote2.png
--Franklin Nelson (Earth-616)

Quote1.png Remember who you are! Quote2.png
--Franklin Nelson (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I just wanted -- first of all, thank you for, uh, turning off your sparkle fingers and hearing what I have to say. I think in the end, we can arrive at a settlement that will benefit us all. Oh, God. Can I get a sidebar?! Quote2.png

Listen very carefully… You have to find him and you have to get him out of the country. Cash yourselves out and move to Paris or Argentina. Both of you. You can’t fight this.

You're going to go to jail. And Matt can't help you. And no one's going to help him. Half because people generally suck and half because Matt has pushed everyone away. There's nothing standing in between you and this. Let me get you out of the country.

Go back to the previous question. What do you mean, if there's time?
Conversation Tail.png
Franklin Nelson (Earth-616) from Daredevil Vol 1 605 001.jpg
Foggy Nelson
Matty, I wasn't fair to you, either. I think the reason I was so angry that you might not be dealing with your problems honestly and with courage is because I... I need that from you right now. I need you to be the one who can teach me how to do all that.
