[The Truth]

[At the Hearings]

Kitz: Wait a minute, let me get this straight. You admit that you have absolutely no physical evidence to back up your story.
Ellie: Yes.
Kitz: You admit that you very well may have hallucinated this whole thing.
Ellie: Yes.
Kitz: You admit that if you were in our position, you would respond with exactly the same degree of incredulity and skepticism.
Ellie: Yes.
Kitz: Then why don't you simply withdraw your testimony and concede that this journey to the center of the galaxy in fact never took place?
Ellie: Because I can't. I had an experience. I can't prove it. I can't even explain it, but everything that I know as a human being, everything that I am tells me that it was real. I was given something wonderful, something that changed me forever. A vision of the universe that tells us, undeniably, how tiny and insignificant, and how rare and precious we all are. A vision that tells us that we belong to something that is greater than ourselves, that we are not--that none of us--are alone. I wish I could share that. I wish that everyone, if even for one moment, could feel that awe and humility, and hope, but... that continues to be my wish.
