One in an endless stream of moving Paul Newman moments, but one that really feels special:

Never mind what happened in 1969. I’ll dig up the old magazine and put it on the web site. Let’s move forward to 1995, and listen very carefully. When I walked into his room, he said, “Aw…it’s you again.” The point is not that he remembered me. The point is how he said “aw…” Imagine it in Paul Newman’s voice. It evoked feelings hard to express in words. The “aw” wasn’t “oh, no,” as it sometimes can be. To it me it translated as, “Aw, it’s that scared kid, grown up.” Whatever it meant, it put me right at home.
