  • Quotes

    • Megan: I´m dating someone. (to Dr. Santiago) No, it´s more than that. I´m in love with him. It´s the first time in years I´ve felt this alive. And after the chemo and the pain and the living death I want to embrace these feelings with every ounce of my being. I wanna make love to him with the lights on without worrying about racing to a lamp because I´m self-conscious. I don´t wanna edit one minute of my life.
      Sean: Don´t do it for him.
      Megan: No, I´m doing it for me.

    • Christian: I've lost my faith, Father. I've drank, I've done drugs, I've fornicated with women and discarded them like trash. I've lost my soul. The boys you raped will be saying the same thing in 20 years.

    • Matt: Mom's making French toast instead of nuking an Eggo? Is it someone's birthday?
      Julia: I was feeling generous.
