  • Could have been better for me, but I feel growth in this show already.

  • I am totally hooked on this series. After a couple of very good episodes, this one manages to step up a notch in terms of real character development and in terms of setting the scene for each character's future challenges.

  • Overall, a slight step up from the previous episodes. Which is amazing, because the previous episodes were great already!

    • Jason: Stop! My legs are never gonna get better….ever. Lyla: But there are cases, lots of cases-- Jason: And those cases aren’t me. All right? I don’t even have full use of my hands. I’ll be lucky if I get that back. Alright, I can’t even put my own shoes on and off. How can you not see that? What the hell is wrong with you? Lyla: I’m just trying to help you Jason: Yeah, well, you’re not helping. You wanna help then stop pretending that everything is ok. Lyla: Why are you getting so mad? Jason: Because every night when I go to sleep, I dream that I can walk again. And every morning, I wake up, and I have to accept it all over again. And then you walk in here, all smiles and acting like nothing’s wrong and it’s killing me! So get this through your head. My life as we knew it—over. Lyla: Don’t say that, Jason. Jason: Football--over. Notre Dame, going pro, all that--gone. You and me? We’re not getting married. So, I need you to do something for me, all right? Get out (shouting) Get out!! Don’t just look at me, go! Lyla: I’ll be back tomorrow for when they transfer you to the rehab facility.

    • Coach Taylor: Wind sprints, up and down the hill. Let’s go. Let’s go. (whistle blows) If you think you’re champions because you wear the Panther uniform. You’re wrong! If you think you’re champions because they give you a piece of pie at the diner. You’re wrong! Champions don’t complain! Champions don’t give up! Let’s go Coach. Send’em out. (whistle blows) Champions don’t give up! Champions don’t complain! Champions give 200%. You’re not champions until you’ve earned it!

    • Coach Taylor: Execution! Where the hell’s the execution out there?! Huh? My God, we ought to be beating these bums by 40 points! Riggins, you’re supposed to be one of the toughest guys in the district. They are handing your ass to you, son! You better get your head in the game. Smash…north, south, north, south. You want to dance with these boys out there; you invite them to the prom

    • Coach Taylor: Saracen. That was a good game. (looks at the rest of the team) But not good enough. Not nearly good enough!

    • Mrs. Garrity: Lyla, are you sure this isn't all just too much? I mean, you're at the hospital everyday. Lyla Garrity: You'd do it for Dad, wouldn't you? Mrs. Garrity: Well, yeah, but he's my husband. Lyla Garrity: Well, I'm marrying Jason someday. Mrs. Garrity: Honey, you need to accept the reality of the situation. I mean, this is a terrible thing that has happened, and maybe you should talk to someone. Lyla Garrity: He's coming back from this, okay. He just is. That's all there is to it. He needs me right now.
