    • Jax: (opening voiceover) Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.

    • Gemma: You a pimp?
      Nero: I'm a companionator. I bring folks together. I'm all about the love.

    • Jax: I'm not going to turn into Clay.
      Opie: I'm afraid I'm gonna turn into you.

    • Roosevelt: One innocent get's hurt and I make Pope look like an altar boy, you understand?
      Chibs: I see what you did there. I love Catholic jokes.
      Tig: You know, remember the two nuns...?

    • Leroy's replacement: Is that Leroy?
      August: Most of him. Little b-tch was screaming so loud I kind of lost my sh-t. Congratulations, you in charge.
      Leroy's replacement: No wait wait, what if I don't want to be in charge?
      August: Rise to it brother. With great power, comes great responsibility.
      Leroy's replacement: I ain't Spider-Man N--ga.
