“Look, I realize that it's just a silly game, okay? But that game... is the only connection that I have to home right now. And yes, I was hoping that I could share it with everyone and that just for one day, I would forget that I'm thousands of miles away from everything that I've ever known. (...) I miss the, the terrible weather, and, and the bland food, and the bars that close at eleven, and fine, I realize I'm not doing a very good job of selling England right now, but I miss it because it's my home!”
―Charlie explaining his homesickness to Valentina.[src]
