I am having trouble remembering who wrote the poem that made Jordan realize how much he likes Angela. Its in the episode with the boiler room stuff. Thanks for your help!

It is Sonnet 130 by Shakespeare:
My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red, than her lips red:
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound:
I grant I never saw a goddess go,
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet by heaven, I think my love as rare,
As any she belied with false compare.

That was a beautiful piece. So perfect for the scene as well.
