    • Tim McManus: This isn't Burger King. You can't have it your way.
      Sgt. Harvey Brown: My house is in disarray. I want you to help me clean it up.
      Sam Bosco: I'm gonna say it then. The doctors better be right. I love you, Teresa.
      Dennis Shepard: I would like nothing better than to see you die, Mr. McKinney. However, this is the time to begin the healing process, to show mercy to someone who refused to show any mercy. Mr. McKinney, I am going to grant you life, as hard as it is to do so, because of Matthew. Everytime you celebrate Christmas, a birthday, the 4th of July, remember that Matt isn't. Everytime that you wake up in your prison cell, remember you had the opportunity and the ability to stop your actions that night. You robbed me of something very precious and I will never forgive you for that. Mr. McKinney, I give you life in the memory of someone who no longer lives. May you have a long life. And may you thank Matthew everyday for it.

    • Terry Kinney: I just turned down a huge miniseries, which was this disaster movie that I started reading, and I got to the point where there's a hurricane over Lake Michigan, and I just closed it. I said to myself, "I think I've read enough." But when I called to tell them no, they said, "But, you know, it's this huge amount of money." And I thought, "Wow. I mean, I'm a whore like everybody else; maybe I could live with this. Where is it filming again?" They said, "Winnipeg." And I said, "See, we're going backwards now. If it were Toronto I might just whore myself." And they said, "Oh no, Winnipeg's a booming metropolis now." And I was like, "Oh come on, even you don't believe that. Have you ever been there?"

    • [On the writers of The LAByrinth Theatre]:
      Terry Kinney: It's a great thing when writers have the sensitivity to write well for a specific group of actors, which comes out of working together over an extended period of time. I think that's something we could do much more often, frankly.
