  • Quotes

    • Max: I won't make this decision for everyone. I'm givin' up the throne. I'm not a king. (to Michael) And you're not my second-in-command. (to Isabel) And you're not a princess. We're just fighting for our lives.
      Isabel: Well, then we need to start planning on how to fight back.
      Michael: I got a better idea. Why don't we get outta Dodge before they land on us? We leave.
      Kyle: And where do we go?
      Michael: Anywhere but here. I mean, let's face it. They know who we are. It's over. We leave Roswell. We leave fast and we leave as quietly as we can.

    • Liz: I can't tell you much more than that. It wouldn't be safe. For you or for us. I can tell you that we're far away and that we're all trying to avoid the law and do good in the world. Oh, and I guess I should tell you that Max and I did eventually tie the knot. Give my love to Mom. Let her read this journal too. Then, give it to Maria's mom, and after that, take it and burn it out in the desert by the ruins of the pod chamber, where my husband was born. So that's the end. Our life in Roswell. What a long, strange trip it's been. Will we ever go back? I don't know. Even I can't see everything in the future. All I know is that I'm Liz Parker... and I'm happy.

    • Max: Hi, I'm Max Evans. I thought I'd take this opportunity to say a few things on behalf of myself and the graduating class. Some of us are here tonight to walk across this stage and get our hard-earned diplomas and toss our caps in the air. But there's another group here tonight, a group of people who are here for another reason altogether. They're here to say goodbye. Goodbye to their high school lives. Goodbye to family and friends. You see, this group has been though a lot. And tonight is the night they've decided to call it quits. It's been a long, hard road for them. They have a lot of wounds. They've lost people. People that were close to them. They've had each other to cling to. But tonight that's all coming to an end. I'm a member of that group of...outsiders. I always knew I was different. And for a long, long time, all I wanted was to be another face in the crowd. But in the wasn't possible. I guess it never was. So from now on, I'll just concentrate on being who I really am. Some of you might not like that. Some of you might even find that frightening. But that's not my problem anymore. I have to be who I really am and let fate take care of the rest. So thank you, Roswell. Thank you for letting me live among you. Thank you for giving me a family. Thank you for giving me a home.

    • Max: A trick I learned from Superman. Let's see if it really works. (He takes a piece of coal and turns it into a diamond, then gets down on one knee)
      Liz: Oh, my...
      Max: Liz, they're taking our home from us. They wanna kill us...and they might. But when I look in your eyes I don't feel angry or deprived. I feel like the luckiest half-human on the planet. You're pure. You're true, and you're real. And right now that seems like the only thing that's important. I wanna be with you, Liz. Forever.
      Liz: 'Forever' may only be 12 days.
      Max: Then we'll take those 12 days. And we'll live 12 lifetimes. Liz Parker...will you marry me?
      Liz: Yes.
      (They kiss)

    • Michael: Well, I'm not graduating so, I guess I'll be the first to leave.
      Max: Michael, look...
      Michael: Ah, I'm traveling light so, you can have my Metallica CDs.
      Max: I know things between us have been a little ah...
      Michael: Maxwell don't. 'Cuz I can't.
      (Max hugs Michael as the others look on)

    • Valenti: I hear I missed quite a ceremony.
      Kyle: I don't think they're gonna forget the class of 2002.

    • Liz: They probably don't know anything about you, Kyle. You could still go back.
      Kyle: Even if by some miracle they haven't put me together with the rest of you guys, there's still the little matter of my latent alien powers. Someday, I'll be buzzing and crackling like tin foil in a microwave and I'd just as soon be with my own kind when it happens.
      Michael: Does he really get to start referring to us as his "own kind"?

    • Michael: Modesty prevents me from taking a bow.

    • Liz: The trouble with making plans for the future ...even when you can see the future... is that fate has a way of intervening and upsetting 'the best laid plans of mice and men'. Robert Burns, 1785. That was on the SAT, too.

    • Liz: I'm trying to handle the whole college acceptance thing with grace and aplomb.
      Max: ...'Aplomb'?
      Liz: Yeah... it's an SAT word that I can't get out of my head. It's slowly driving me crazy.

    • Maria: I thought you were leaving.
      Michael: I am... but I just wanted... I dunno.
      Maria: To say goodbye?
      Michael: I wanted to say that this thing has been screwed up from the beginning. You and me. Us. Just the whole long, stupid story...
      Maria: Thanks...
      Michael: But I wouldn't trade it for anything. It's meant so much to me, y'know. From day one, from the moment I kidnapped you and stole your car... I knew you were the girl for me. I never wanted anyone else...
      Maria: Michael...
      Michael: I still don't. Just... Wherever I'm going, whatever I'm doin', just know I'll always love you.
      (Michael puts his helmet on and starts his bike)
      Maria: Wait. No... wait. You - you can't just say that and then...
      (Michael rides off, leaving Maria looking after him)

    • Max: So from now on I'll just concentrate on being who I really am. And some of you may not like that. Some of you might even find that frightening. But that's not my problem anymore. I have to be who I really am and let fate take care of the rest.

    • Liz: We're all going to be killed.

    • Michael: I dream we get whacked every other night, why the meeting?

    • Michael: The current theory is that I'm gonna be dust.
      Madame Vivian: Dust?
      Michael: Yeah, dead, kaput, finito Michaelito.

    • Maria: What about that thing with Courtney last year?
      Michael: Those were extenuating circumstances, she was a Michael worshiper.

    • Max: I'm the luckiest half-human on this earth.

    • Michael: A team? Look at us it's ridiculous!
