      • Blair: What about my parable? What about my metaphor? What about your wonderful words of wisdom?
        Jo: Blair!
        Blair: Well you got your rock! What about my inner self?
        Mrs. Garrett: Blair, you don't need me to tell you about your inner self. I can't think of any other girl in this school who's grown as much as you have. You've matured. You're sensitive. And caring. And I feel lucky to have you as my friend.
        Blair: I'll buy that.

      • (About Mrs. Garrett's graduation gift for Jo)
        Mrs. Garrett: It's a geode. See, these are the crystals, and those are all the layers of minerals and I think there's a fossil over here.
        Jo: It's great Mrs. G. I'm, I'm gonna keep it on my desk.
        Mrs. Garrett: Well I saw the rock and it reminded me of you. I mean... there's a lot more there than meets the eye. It's tough on the outside, but inside... there are all sorts of marvelous things going on. Just promise me you'll never throw it at Blair.
        Jo: Oh, then forget it. (They laugh)

      • (Planning for their bedroom next year)
        Natalie: (To Tootie) So which bed do you want?
        Jo: Do you mind? My mattress isn't even cold yet.
        Natalie: Listen, I've been in that bottom bunk for three years. Do you know what it's like to wake up in the middle of the night and think you're in a coffin?

      • Blair: This is it.
        Jo: Good bye high school.
        Blair: No more uniforms!
        Jo: No more curfew!
        Blair: No more living over the kitchen.
        Jo: No more...

      • (Jo is practicing her speech while everyone is getting ready)
        Jo: Graduation is traditionally a time of looking forward. But let us consider a moment how we arrived at this moment. None of us did this alone.
        (She looks at Mrs. Garrett)
        Jo: We have received support in the hard times.
        (She looks at Tootie)
        Jo: Encouragement when we needed it.
        (She looks at Natalie)
        Jo: Most important, love from our family and friends.
        (She looks at Blair)
        Jo: All this leaves us with a debt that cannot be measured or repaid.

      • Charlie: Am I late? I was in town.
        Rose: What were you doing, buying lunch for upstate New York?
        Charlie: Oh Rose, that tone of voice has always been so attractive.
        Jo: You know, I'd love to stick around and watch the main event, but, uh, I'm not wearing this fringed Frisbee for my health.

      • Blair: Daddy doesn't do it on purpose. He loves me. It may not be the best way, but it's his way, and you just have to accept it for what it is.
        Monica: Well why should you have to do that?
        Blair: Because if I don't I'll spent my whole life being angry. And mother, that's no way to live.

      • Blair: How was your evening?
        Monica: Oh, Geri and I had a nice quiet dinner at the inn.
        Geri: Yeah, she made the waiter set a place for your dad. She spent the whole evening yelling at the empty chair.

      • Blair: I wish this was over. Maybe we could go to Las Vegas and get a quickie graduation.
