wasn't it a long way down

serial killers fascinate me more than is socially acceptable, especially ted bundy

"i didn't know what made people want to be friends. i didn't know what made people attractive to one another. i didn't know what underlay social interactions."

"you feel the last bit of breath leaving their body. you're looking into their eyes. a person in that situation is god."

judge edward cowart sentencing bundy to death: "it is ordered that you be put to death by a current of electricity, that that current be passed through your body until you are dead. take care of yourself, young man. i say that to you sincerely; take care of yourself. it's a tragedy for this court to see such a total waste of humanity as i've experienced in this courtroom. you're a bright young man. you'd have made a good lawyer, and i'd have loved to have you practice in front of me, but you went the wrong way, partner. take care of yourself. i don't have any animosity to you. i want you to know that."
