Bailey: "That what it was?"
Will: "Listen, this has nothing to do with you. Not really. It's more like what's wrong with my life if the most useful thing I can think to do is marry someone to help them get their green card."
Bailey: "Will, I'm sorry."
Will: "Don't be. I'd do it all again, because the reason I did it..."
