It was actually shocking to me how much of his own personality he has. With amnesia you would think that little things the person does disappear, but Clive was his own person. Even though he had no recollection of any events, he would still know some things, he would remember numbers from his childhood, he would bite his fingers when he would get shy and joke around about wanting to drink some gin and tonic or go to a pub. It was very surprising to me, but I totally agree with Deborah now, even though before I have thought that our memory is us and all we had of ourselves.
