  • This was another solid episode, in which we continued to see the different road taken by both Jesse and Jacob.

    • Allie: (narrating) The world is made up of the big things that happen and the small ones. And the part that's so unfair is that we call them "big" and "small." Because when something happens to you, when you lose something or someone that you really care about, that's all there is. The world may be blowing up around you, but you don't care about that. You don't care about that at all.

    • Owen: Alle ihre erinnerungen kommmen auf einmal. Alle ihre erinnerungen und alle ihre aengste. "All your memories play at once. All your memories and all your fears."

    • Allie: (narrating) Poeple like to examine the thing that frighten them, to look at them and give them names, so saints look for God, and scientists look for evidence. They're both just trying to take away the mystery, to take away the fear.

    • Allie: (narrating) We're all standing on the edge of a cliff, all the time, every day, a cliff we're all going over. Our choice is'nt about that. Our choice is about whether we want to go kicking and screaming or whether we might want to open our eyes and our hearts to what happens once we start to fall.

    • Allie: (narrating) I have this idea about why poeple do the terrible things they do. Same reason little kids push each other on the schoolyard. If you're the one doing the pushing, then you're not going to be the one who gets pushed. If you're the monster, then nothing will be waiting in the shadows to jump out at you. It's pretty simple, really. Poeple do the terrible things they do because they're scared.
