    • (About the disappearing kids) Wilkes: Pulled off the street, robbed of your own life, forced into another. Joe: I can relate.

    • Frankie: (reading the classified newspaper adverts) 'Single female, non-smoker, non-drinker, non-gambler,' oh she sounds like a real riot! 'Seeks same,' Yeah, good luck. I must be grazing in the nun column!

    • Claire: You keep talking about Michael like he's another person, like he's dead or something. Joe: He is, in a way. I keep trying to piece him together, but I still have to figure out where I'm going before I can see where I've been.

    • Claire: (to Joe) There was this old jukebox in the hotel bar and you heard this song; and you just kept playing it over and over and over. You said it was about fate, how if two people were really meant to be together, that they would be, no matter what. Do you still feel that way? Joe: I don't know. I'd like to, but I don't know.

    • Lang: Each of us here has a function, Bollo, an orbit. A proper dependable course, precisely regulated by me. Now, do we know how the asteroids were formed? One planet strayed into the path of another and it was destroyed. You see my point?
