  • Quotes

    • Allie: (narrating) Most of the fights people have are about something simple. You want something the other person has, or maybe they're afraid you're going to want it and they go after you first. People always think that if they win, then that's the end. Everything will be all right from then on. Then everything changes. And tomorrow, the thing you were fighting for will just be a memory. Like everything else, it's already happened.

    • Beers: Just how powerful is this little girl, Doctor?
      Wakeman: She's demonstrated powers beyond anything we imagined. She can manipulate time. She has amazing abilities to screen and to project images from our minds. Just how powerful is she? The question you should be asking is, "Why is she letting us take her anywhere at all?"

    • Mary: Do you know who I am?
      Allie: Not exactly.
      Mary: Well, um, our families go way back. Mine and your mom's and your dad's. I kind of think that you and I might be the end of all this.
      Allie: We might just be the beginning. Your grandfather wasn't a very happy man. Why are you trying so hard to be like him?

    • Allie: (narrating) We had come to the time I had always known was coming. I had always had this feeling that, one day, I would have to do something very hard. I just hoped that I could find a way to do it without anyone getting hurt.

    • Allie: (narrating) When you've done something that you can't take back, something that you don't understand, you start to hold tightly to the things you do understand, and you try to make sense out of everything you can. Because if you believed that all you had to do to make things right was to find a reason, but what happens when you find the reasons and they are not your own? How do you find any comfort or any sense in that?

    • Allie: (narrating) I guess I always knew that there was something different about me. But when all of this began to happen, when I started to be able to do things, it was kind of scary -- like in a dream where you start falling and feels kind of good, until you start begin to wonder if you'll ever be able to stop.
