      • (Matthew pleading with Pam to help him talk to Becky.)
        MATT: "Becky needs my help."
        PAM: "Well, Matt, I don't think she wants it."
        MATT: "Look, Pam, you yourself said I'm different. That I can help people. Well, help me help somebody who needs it."
        PAM: "Matt, there's not any other guy in this school who would ask his girlfriend to do that. Now what's this all about, anyway?"
        MATT: "Pam, I can't. It wouldn't be fair to Becky if I told you."
        PAM: "This is great; just great."
        MATT: "Pam, just trust me. I promise there isn't anything going on between Becky and myself."
        PAM: "Okay, but if there is, Becky is going to be dating a corpse."

      • (Matt is trying to get through to Becky that he can help her.)
        MATT: "You're beautiful. People care about you. I care about you."
        BECKY: "Why?"
        MATT: "'Cause I know the pain you're going through."
        BECKY: "You can't."
        MATT: "I do. I also know that you're not crazy. You're just seeing into the future because of the bump on your head."
        BECKY: "I'm so scared."
        MATT: "Well, there's a good chance that this is all temporary, that you'll be fine."
        BECKY: "I don't know if I can believe you."
        MATT: "Becky, you'll have to for now. You're seeing people in your mind that are being killed. Everything up to this point has been a prediction of the future. We have to help those people. That's all that matters now."
        (Becky nods.)

      • (Upon Walt noting that Matt has been quiet all evening.)

        MATT: I wanted you to know how important you are to me, Shep. After being around Becky the last couple of days and seeing all the pain she's been in, it really put me in touch with how much kindness and support that you, who aren't even my father, has given me."
        WALT: (caught offguard) "Well, genealogy has very little to do with love, Matthew."
        MATT: "I'm glad."
        WALT: (after a beat, with tears in his eyes) "Thank you."
