    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Will's sonnet to Caroline
        I am earth, you are sky.
        I gaze up to your light beauty.
        The wind is your touch.
        Gently, like small fingers dancing.
        How can I hold the wind?

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Will: When exactly do we go from being kids to being... just people, I'm not sure. I do know that it's not about turning a certain age or graduating from school. It happens when we're not paying attention. We go from playing with out friends... to playing with out friends' feelings. Without our knowledge or consent, childhood slips away in the night. And our innocence escapes us. And we wake up one morning... to find we have become... who we are.

      • Bella: In fact ever since the first time I saw you, I thought... Never mind, if I'm wrong about this, I'll light myself on fire.
        Jake: What? Say it.
        Bella: I thought, why is this beautiful girl dressing like a guy?

      • Bella: (to Jake) Are you two like, totally in love? No wonder they all think you're gay.

      • Will: When is the age or even the moment we go from being kids to being... Something else. I mean, so much can happen in a year. People say that we're growing up way too fast. Sometimes adults make it sound like it's our fault. Or at least, our choice. But how can we not? We feel invincible. And we know so much. One thing I do know is that we're so eager to lose our innocence. And I wonder if one day we'll look back and wish we hadn't?

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Free Willie: The title of the episode appears to be a reference to the movie Free Willie, about a boy who befriends a Killer Whale in captivity, and eventually frees him so he can be in the ocean once again.
