June, about Johnny:
"One morning, about four o’clock, I was driving my car just about as fast as I could. I thought, ‘Why am I out on the highway this time of night?’ I was miserable, and it all came to me: ‘I’m falling in love with somebody I have no right to fall in love with…I can’t fall in love with this man, but it’s just like a ring of fire.’"
