    • Gary: Robbie, how you doing? Robbie: All right. Michael: He's back in school. Wants to be a journalist now. Robbie: Yeah. I want to publish one of those magic newspapers.

    • Chuck: (closing monologue) Nobody lives forever, but try telling that to the very young. When the future's road that leads straight up; and hope is in your pocket; and tomorrow's a promise you can't wait to keep. Like I said, everyone has a dream.

    • Chuck: (opening monologue) Everybody has a dream. It comes with being alive. Doesn't matter who you are; or what you do; or where you grew up. If you're breathing, you got one. But the dreams you dream when you're young, those are the ones that count. The ones you never give up. When every second lasts a lifetime. And when you know, beyond a doubt, that you're different... and that you're going to live forever.
