I get traffic from world searching for this quote almost daily. Aaron Sorkin character it twice–once ~ above Sports Night, and again on The West Wing. I’ve used it before too, when in describing Harry’s duty in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

You are watching: When the fall is all that is left

Sorkin’s depicted goes favor this: “As if it matters how a man drops down. As soon as the loss is all that’s left, that matters very much.”

The line originates from The Lion in Winter, together Prince Geoffrey and Prince Richard find themselves in the dungeon, believing lock hear your father’s approach…

Richard: He’s here. He’ll obtain no satisfaction out of me. He isn’t going to view me beg.Geoffrey: my you chivalric fool… together if the means one fell down mattered.Richard: When the fall is all there is, that matters.

And right here it is in life color! (Unfortunately, the only YouTube video clip I discovered that displays this step refuses come let me embed it–click the link and enjoy.)
