If there wasn't evil in every single one of them out there, why, they wouldn't be people. They'd all be angels-Angel (Holland Manners)

 

You made a difference in the lives you saved. And you did it because... it was the right thing to do. Nobody asks us to go out and fight, put our lives on the line. We do it because we can, 'cause we know how. We do it whether people remember us or not, in spite of the fact that there's no shiny reward at the end of the day... other than the work itself. I think some part of you still knows that, still believes in being a hero.-Angel (Angel)

 

Oh, I just thought I'd see what it was like to bounce off the pavement. Pretty much what I expected.-Angel (Spike)

To hell with the world.-Angel (Angel)

Can't even get drunk. Why would anyone ever make a bottle this small? It's inhuman. It's like a bloody tease. It's like, "Here's what a bottle of Jack would look like if you actually had one," or, "here's a drink, but it's very far away.-Angel (spike)

Death doesn't have to be the end, not in our world. Rules can be broken. All you have to do... is push hard enough.-Angel (Angel)

Illyria: We cling to what is gone. Is there anything in this life but grief? Wesley: There's love. There's hope...for some. There's hope that you'll find something worthy... that your life will lead you to some joy... that after everything... you can still be surprised.-Angel (Illyria and Wesley)

Not an apocalypse. The apocalypse. What'd you think, a gong was gonna sound? Time to jump on your horses and fight the big fight? Starting pistol went off a long time ago, boys. You're playing for the bad guys. Every day you sit behind your desk and you learn a little more how to accept the world the way it is. Well, here's the rub... heroes don't do that. Heroes don't accept the world the way it is. They fight it.-Angel (Lindsey)

Illyria: Odd. It doesn't exist until it cracks apart. Wesley: What's that? Illyria: Time."-Angel (Illyria and Wesley)

Ohhh. The point is she's moving on. You guys do the same, and you might catch her one day. One of you, anyway. But you keep running in place, you're gonna find she's long gone.-Angel (Andrew)

Love just gets in the way, confuses people, makes them scattered.-Beverly Hills 90210 (Dylan)

Anything quieter than a gunshot people don't hear and even then they don't listen long.-Beverly Hills 90210 (Brandon)

What about friendship, how far is that suppose to take us? What do you just expect us to jump in the jail cell with you and keep you company?-Beverly Hills 90210 (Kelly)

-Boy Meets World-

I opened my heart to you. I can't just stand around like a fool, waiting for you to be ready-Boy Meets World

We put little pine trees on the big pine trees to give the forest the new car smell!-Boy Meets World (Eric)

Eric: I’m telling you, it’s like a 5th sense! Jack: You mean 6th sense? Eric: No, dude, that’s smell.  You gotta be lucky to get that one-Boy Meets World (Eric and Jack)

Cory: It’s an interesting feeling you know?  Shawn: What, knowing it’s over?  Cory: No, being the only guy in the world who knows it's not-Boy Meets World (Cory and Shawn)

What if Mr. Feeny's right? What if this is the last time we're together... is that a chance you want to take?-Boy Meets World

Lose one friend, lose all friends, lose yourself.-Boy Meets World (Eric)

Ever since I was young I never understood anything about the world. And anything that happened in my life, the only thing that ever made sense to me was you, and how I felt about you, that’s all I’ve ever known, and that’s enough… That’s enough for me for the rest of my life.-Boy Meets World (Cory)

Morgan: Mommy, if my dolly is cold, can I put her in the toaster oven?  Amy: No, honey that would be a mistake. Morgan: Mommy?  Amy: What?  Morgan: I made a mistake.-Boy Meets World (Morgan and Amy)

Topanga: You should use your right brain. Cory: Oh my god, all these years I've been using the wrong one!-Boy Meets World (Topanga and Cory)

 

Angela: You forgot the rings didn’t you?  Eric: Ya, but I remembered my underwear.  Wait, no I didn’t-Boy Meets World (Angela and Eric)

-Buffy the Vampire Slayer-

Spike, my boy, you really don't get it, do you? You tried to kill her, but you couldn't. Look at you. You're a wreck! She's stronger than any Slayer you've ever faced. Force won't get it done. You gotta work from the inside. To kill this girl... you have to love her.-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angelus)

It's the same question that haunts you. Is today the day I die?-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Spike)

And here's where we hop on the merry-go-round of rotating knives. I blame you, and you blame me, and we both end up all cut to shreds.-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Anya)

"Made with care for Randy." Randy Giles? Why not just call me "Horny Giles" or "Desperate-for-a-shag Giles"? I knew there was a reason I hated you.-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Spike)

I do remember what I said. The promise. To protect her. If I'd have done that, even if I didn't make it, you wouldn't have had to jump. But I want you to know I did save you. Not when it counted, of course, but after that, every night after that. I'd see it all again, and do something different. Faster, or more clever, you know? Dozens of times, lots of different ways. Every night, I save you.-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Spike)

I was happy. Wherever I was, I was happy. At peace. I knew that everyone I cared about was all right. I knew it. Time didn't mean anything. Nothing had form, but I was still me, you know? And I was warm, and I was loved. And I was finished. Complete. I don't understand theology and dimensions... or any of it, really. But I think I was in heaven. And now I'm not. I was torn out of there, pulled out by my friends. Everything here is hard, and bright, and violent. Everything I feel, everything I touch... this is hell, just getting through the next moment and the one after that. Knowing what I've lost-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Buffy)

“you're not friends. You'll never be friends. You'll be in love until it kills you both. You'll fight, you'll shag, you'll hate each other till it makes you quiver but you'll never be friends. Love isn't brains; it's blood. Blood screaming inside you to work it's will. I may be love's bitch but at least I'm man enough to admit it.-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Spike)

Sometimes it hurt more then we can bear. If we could live without passion maybe we'd know some kind of peace…but we would be hollow…Empty rooms shuttered and dank. Without passion we'd be truly dead-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel)

The hardest thing in this world is to live in it-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Buffy)

Buffy: We're not friends. We never were. And I can fool Giles, and I can fool my friends, but I can't fool myself...or Spike, for some reason. What I want from you I can never have. Angel: There's got to be some way we can still see each other. Buffy: There is. Tell me you don't love me.-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Buffy and Angel)

 

Giles: You mean life? Buffy: Yeah. Does it get easy? Giles: What do you want me to say?  Buffy: Lie to me. Giles: Yes, it's terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true. The bad guys are easily distinguished by the pointy horns or black hats. And, uh, we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies, and everybody lives happily ever after. Buffy: Liar.-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Giles and Buffy)

 

I don't like vampires. I'm gonna take a stand and say they're not good.-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Xander)

 

There are moments in your life that make you, that set the course for who you're going to be. Sometimes they're subtle moments, sometimes they're not.-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel)

 

You were there? Please... if every vampire who said he was at the crucifixion was actually there, it would have been like Woodstock. I was actually at Woodstock. That was a weird gig. I fed off a flower person and I spent the next six hours watching my hand move.-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Spike)

Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does. So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Whistler)

You ever think that the world is a giant game of musical chairs, and the music's stopped and we're the only ones who don't have a chair?-Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Xander)

-CSI-
 
We all have this secret, terrible cave in our hearts, and the harder we try to escape it, the deeper we drive ourselves inside of it-CSI (Mindy)
 
Sometimes a shot in the dark hits anyway-CSI (Sara)

-Dawson's Creek-

You grow up, and it gets harder to believe in things like soul mates and destiny and magic, things that came so easily when I was younger.- Dawson's Creek (Dawson)

someone out there is meant to be the love of your life, your best friend, your soulmate, the one you can tell your dreams to. he'll smile at you when you tell him, but he'll never laugh at your heart. he'll brush the hair out of your eyes and send you flowers when you least expect it. he'll call you to tell you goodnight before you get into bed or just because he is thinking about you. he'll be bursting to talk to you each morning just to hear the sound of your voice. he'll look into your eyes and tell you that you are the most beautiful girl he has ever seen and for the first time in your life ... you'll believe it- Dawson's Creek

You're probably right...I'm sure I don't have any idea what you're going through. How hard it is to let someone go. How painful it must be to know that as right as you two are for each other, it doesn't mean you're right for each other right now. I wouldn't know a thing about that. About how it makes you want to scream, or hit someone...or cry.-Dawson's Creek

It was the end of something simple and the beginning of everything else-Dawson's Creek

so yeah maybe we didn’t talk this summer, and who knows maybe we'll find ourselves talking less and less as time goes on and life gets more and more in the way, but, I don’t feel it, cause you're with me everywhere I go-Dawson's Creek

That's why I wanted to see you. You're a touchstone. You take me back to this nice, safe place where crushes never end and hearts can't be broken.-Dawson's Creek

you keep wearing your heart on your sleeve and you're gonna bleed to death-Dawson's Creek

At a certain point, the whole thing just becomes too much to process, and your brain gets taken out of the loop, and all you have to rely on is your heart, your natural human instincts. It's liberating... not at first of course, at first it's terrifying, like falling... but that's the point, isn't it?-Dawson's Creek

This is one of those rare milestone events that separates the first half of your life from everything that follows-Dawson's Creek

What you think you're leaving behind here, it's just going to be that much bigger when you return.-Dawson's Creek

You’re the guy that builds this fantastic world; you just let the rest of us live in it.-Dawson’s Creek (Pacey)

 

I'd like to tell today's youth that no matter where life takes you, big cities, small towns, you'll inevitably come across small minded people who think they're better than you. People who think that material things, or being pretty or popular, automatically make you a worthwhile human being. I'd like to tell today's youth that none of these things matter. Unless you have a strength of character, integrity... and if you're lucky enough to have any of these things, don't ever sell out. Don't ever sell out. So when you meet a person for the first time, don't judge them by their station in life, 'cause who knows, that person just might end up being your best friend.-Dawson's Creek (Joey)

 

I looked at him, and he looked at me, and for that split second it was like we forgave each other for everything-Dawson's Creek

 

Growing up does not have to equal growing apart-Dawson’s Creek (Dawson)

 

Love does not conquer all.  Love ends and begins again.-Dawson’s Creek (Dawson)

 

How’s that for Irony, huh? …Bad girl throws up on a white picket fence… Don’t be disgusted by me Dawson, deal with me, okay, accept me, and accept the fact that there are people in this world that don’t need saving-Dawson’s Creek (Jen)

 

You know…I don’t think I'll ever be happy...no matter where I am, I'll always want to be some place else. No matter what I have, I'll always want something different.-Dawson’s Creek (Abby)

 

You wanna know what the worst part about death is? It has this horrible tendency of putting everyone in a really bad mood. When I go, I want to go in a way in which it makes everybody laugh. You know, like, no matter how sudden or tragic the circumstances, you just can't help but laugh... like getting run over by a car full of clowns. That's kinda funny, right? You smiled. Mission accomplished.-Dawson’s Creek (Pacey)

 

Once upon a time in a galaxy not entirely unlike our own, there was a girl. There was nothing extraordinary about this girl. She was by her own estimation a relatively simple sort, yet she was cursed. For as long as she could remember, her romantic life had been something of a disaster. Boys either fell too hard, too fast, or not at all. She had long since given up on the notion of a functional relationship, which is why, in the winter of her 19th year, she was surprised to find herself in the company of a boy who made her feel as if the curse had been lifted... if only temporarily.-Dawson’s Creek (Joey)

 

I wonder if one day when you look back on your life you'll see it’s not always about the big picture. It's really all about the moments and maybe one day you'll look back and string all those moments together and then you'll realize when you add them all up, your life is more meaningful than you could have dreamed.-Dawson’s Creek

 

Don't let yourself be so angry you stop loving. Because one day you'll wake up from the anger, and the person you love will be gone.-Dawson’s Creek (Joey)

 

It seems that every relationship produces its share of disappointments, insecurity, and pain. Anyone who's never been hurt is either very lucky, or very lonely.-Dawson’s Creek

 

You know, it's weird how you still love the person, you just stop needing them the way you used to."-Dawson’s Creek (Dawson)

 

You can't even cry, can you? Something has been taken away from you. You're numb. And you know what? I think you're grateful for it. No wonder you're afraid of ending up alone. Because the day you are, you're going to have to look inside yourself, and see what I've known for a long time. That there's nothing there.-Dawson's Creek (Jen)

 

Us, me and you, Pace, we grew up together. You see, Dawson and I, we didn't grow up. We are in that house, in Dawson's bedroom, eternally having the same argument over and over again, in this endless cycle that goes on and on, and I can't stop it. Because whenever I'm around him, I become 15.-Dawson’s Creek (Joey)

 

Somewhere in the middle something about us makes sense.-Dawson’s Creek

 

I'm a firm believer that sometimes it’s right to do the wrong thing.-Dawson’s Creek (Pacey)

 

You know I used to spend every day thinking about you and dreaming about you, and every time you walked by I lost myself, do you know what that feels like? And you couldn’t possibly know what it feels like to have that person not have the same feelings back. Look, I’m sorry if you miss the way I looked at you, but I don’t miss the way you never looked at me-Dawson’s Creek (Henry)

 

I wanted to write about falling in love and why it can't last but that at the same time how it lasts forever-Dawson’s Creek (Dawson)

 

Maybe it's the only way that we can finally stand on our own. Ya know, to hurt each other so much that we have no choice but to let go... maybe otherwise we never would.-Dawson’s Creek (Joey)

 

To love someone when there is no chance of that love ever thriving… that is romance.-Dawson’s Creek (Joey)

 

Just because you can’t say certain things, doesn’t mean we don’t feel them.-Dawson’s Creek (Grams)

 

You live in a world of black and white and I see pieces of gray… that's the difference between you and me. That's what made me fall in love with you, and that's what is tearing us apart.-Dawson’s Creek

 

Do you ever wish you could just rewind your life?-Dawson’s Creek (Jack)

 

And the sad part is, that no matter what goes on this year, when you come running back to me again, you know I'll be here.-Dawson’s Creek (Dawson)

 

Dreams aren't perfect. They come true, not free.-Dawson’s Creek (Joey)

 

Maybe some friendships aren't meant to be saved...maybe we're meant to spend a certain part of our life with certain people...and then move on.-Dawson’s Creek

 

Have faith that things will work out for the best…that whatever sent us off in different directions is the very same thing that will bring us back together.-Dawson’s Creek (Dawson)

 

Your whole life is about to change in a way that it will never be the same again, your opening a new chapter, and you have to give a proper goodbye to the old one, you don’t want to miss these moments, even the sad ones, because you'll never get them back again, so enjoy this time, let it wash over you so that your memories of it are strong-Dawson’s Creek (Gretchen)

 

We talk like we know what's going on, but we don't. We don't know anything. We're really young and we're gonna screw-up a lot. We're gonna keep changing our minds and even sometimes our hearts. And through all that, the only real thing we can offer each other is forgiveness.-Dawson’s Creek (Joey)

 

The truth is in time that’s all we'll be to each other anyway, a population of memories, some wonderful and endearing, some less so, but taken together, these memories help make us who we are and who we will be-Dawson’s creek (Joey)

 

I called because I wanted you to know that despite everything that's happened and all the miles between us right now, I still think about the way it was in the beginning.-Dawson’s Creek (Pacey)

 

Understand that friends come and go, but a precious few you should hold on…the older you get, the more you need the people who knew you when you were young-Dawson’s Creek

 

Friends give you the worst of news with the best of intentions.-Dawson’s Creek (Dawson)

 

That's right. I'm done trying to turn my life into some exciting movie, because you know what? I only end up getting disappointed. Like when I started seeing her, I thought, okay, you know what? From now on, everything's gonna be some big epic romance. You know, tortured and passionate and romantic, with some big happy ending. Wasn't that at all. The characters were flawed and uninspired, the love scenes were amateurish, to say the least, and the ending was definitely not happy. It wasn't even tragic. It just ended.—Dawson’s Creek (Dawson)

 

You've taught me that love can suck. That feelings can change, passion will fade, partners will come and go, but through it all, one thing remains sacred: Friendship.-Dawson’s Creek (Dawson)

 

Did it ever occur to you that you're so caught up in trying to make the right choice that you've never stopped to consider the possibility that there may not be a right choice, or a wrong choice, just a bunch of choices?-Dawson’s Creek (Jack)

 

My life was a sea of conflicting emotions… but the one thing that kept me going was our bond… our connection made me feel like I wasn't alone and part of something special. I'm not whining about being friends or not, but I'm not feeling that connection anymore and it scares me.-Dawson’s Creek (Joey)

Every night before I go to sleep I lie on my bed and stare up at my blank walls.  I try to imagine the future, but right now it's as blank as those walls.  All I can see is a past that I barely recognize any more-Dawson’s Creek (Dawson)

Everything changes eventually, that's just the way life is.  You have no control over it.  Suddenly people you think are always going to be there, they just disappear.  People go on, and they move away, and they grow up.-Dawson’s Creek (Joey)

If we weren't so afraid to let go we wouldn't feel so free when we finally did.-Dawson’s Creek (Dawson)

Letting go isn't a one-time thing.  It's something you have to do over and over again everyday.-Dawson’s Creek (Andie)

So the only thing I could think of that unites us all, that we all have in common, is that we start out in kindergarten thinking we can be anything we want to be, and by the time we get here, we've all lost that feeling, we've all started to believe whatever our friends or our parents have told us about what we can achieve in life, and who we can be, and we've forgotten about the possibility we had when we were younger, that’s the one thing we all have in common, so that’s the symbol on this mural means, possibility, I painted it because I thought we could all use a little daily reminder of the fact that if you believe in yourself, even when the odds seem stacked against you, anything is possible-Dawson’s Creek (Joey)

Life is desperate.  Life is chances you never get to take back.-Dawson’s Creek (Dawson)

Growing up sucks, and not all kisses are magic, and most boys do not live up to your expectations. But there are those times when everything, I mean, love, romance, relationships, it all falls together perfectly, and...It’s incredible.-Dawson’s Creek (Joey)

In the end you always go back to the people that were there in the beginning-Dawson’s Creek (Andie)

I also wanted to remind you that even though sometimes my emotions, particularly heartache, get the best of me, I still hear you. No matter how much we yell, or no matter how quiet you are... I hear you.-Dawson’s creek

It’s like I’m drowning and you’re just describing the water-Dawson’s Creek

-Everwood-

There's nothing in the world like being young and in love. It gives you the power to do things you would never have had the courage to do otherwise. It inspires you to make yourself vulnerable, put your heart on the line...To give more than you can give. To speak heart-felt sentiments you thought only existed in old books and flowery poetry. And it can make you forget everything except love itself. That one thing that makes life worth living. The object of your affection...Inspired by love, we can move mountains, make great changes, do great things. But we can also become so blinded by it that we forget everything, everyone. Even ourselves.-Everwood

 

Some hearts are so pure they are like crystal in a world of glass, even when they shatter they are beautiful-Everwood

 

I find it best when dealing with any unfamiliar bully to strike early with sarcasm. It makes them wonder whether I have some secret butt-kicking prowess they're unable to detect.-Everwood (Ephram)

 

Ephram: He said you were crazy. And, uh, news flash! You are. You quit your job and grow this ugly-ass beard. You look like you wear your clothes and you move us to the middle of Nowheres-ville, USA.! And why? For what reason? Because someone told you it was pretty once? And if that's not enough, you talk to Mom like she's still here. Yeah, I've seen you and Delia too. So what do I have to say for myself? What do you have to say for yourself? Andy: I can't believe you think my beard is ugly.-Everwood (Ephram and Andy)

 

Newsflash! You’re not here to save the world, Dr. Brown. Just to annoy it.-Everwood (Dr. Abbot)

 

You owe it to this kid to perform whatever miracle you've got up your sleeve. You owe it to Colin, and to his parents, and to my brokenhearted daughter, and to the universe or whoever decided that you would be Leonardo, and I would be...less remarkable. Hell, you owe it to me.-Everwood (Dr. Abbot)

 

Amy: Even my friends think I'm pathetic because I'm sitting around waiting for some sort of…Ephram: Miracle?  You should. I heard they happen every once in a while. Amy: The way I see it, if there's any miracle in my life right now, it's the fact that your dad looked at a map and of all places, he decided to move here.-Everwood (Amy and Ephram)

 

What happened between Ephram and I amounted to about 10 seconds. Before you go and judge me for it, I want you to think about the hours of bus rides I took to go see you...the pages of books I read to you...the hours of music I played for you because they said you may be able to hear it. I couldn't eat, Colin. I couldn't sleep. I couldn't focus in school. I lost most of my friends. And when you finally did wake up, you didn't know who I was. Your own mother wouldn't let me go see you. What was I supposed to do, because I don't know anymore.-Everwood (Amy)

You're sick and nobody wants to deal with it. And I don't want to make you sad but I just can't be here anymore. I feel like everything’s gonna fall apart again and I don't want to be here when it does.-Everwood (Laynie)

The more things change, the more they stay the same. I'm not sure who the first person was who said that. Probably Shakespeare. Or maybe Sting. But at the moment, it's the sentence that best explains my tragic flaw: my inability to change.I don't think I'm alone in this. The more I get to know other people, the more I realize it's kind of everyone's flaw. Staying exactly the same for as long as possible, standing perfectly still... It feels better somehow. And if you are suffering, at least the pain is familiar. Because if you took that leap of faith, went outside the box, did something unexpected... Who knows what other pain might be waiting out there. Chances are it could be even worse.
So you maintain the status quo. Choose the road already traveled and it doesn't seem that bad. Not as far as flaws go. You're not a drug addict. You're not killing anyone... except maybe yourself a little.
When we finally do change, I don't think it happens like an earthquake or an explosion, where all of a sudden we're like this different person. I think it's smaller than that. The kind of thing most people wouldn't even notice unless they looked at us really, really close. Which, thank God, they never do. But you notice it. Inside you that change feels like a world of difference. And you hope this is it. This is the person you get to be forever... that you'll never have to change again.-Everwood (Ephram)

From the thrusting up of the Rocky Mountains to the carving down of the Grand Canyon great change only comes from conflict. But where nature's greatest conflict consists of relentless pounding of water on rock, or collisions under the earth's crust, for people to change, it takes other people.-Everwood (Irv)

You know, after my mom died, everybody told me that I was gonna be ok, that, it would take a little time, but I would heal. Well, that didn't ever happen; not really anyway…what you're feeling right now Amy, it doesn't ever really go away - not completely. It's not like, ya know, you're gonna go back to being the person you were before they died - the person's gone. It's more like something inside of you breaks and your body finds a way to compensate for it. Like if you busted your right hand, you figure out how to use the left one. And sure, you might resist for a while because you're pissed off that you have to learn all this stuff again that nobody else does. Eventually your body takes over and figures it out for you, and your glad, because if it was up to you…you'd look at your broken hand forever and try to figure out what it was like before.-Everwood (Ephram)

I can't keep being your second choice. Not when you're my first.-Everwood (Ephram)

All I knew was that I loved him. Love made more sense then science.-Everwood (Amy)

Do you think if aliens would probe you, you'd still be considered a virgin?-Everwood (Bright)

Michelangelo said the best way to judge the essential elements of a sculpture is to throw it down a hill and the unimportant pieces will break away. Sometimes life is like that. It tosses us down a hill. But when we reach the bottom and only the important things are left, that's when our vision clears. That's when we hold on tight to what we know, while hope stirs inside us. It's all a matter of perspective.-Everwood (Irv)

-Felicity-

I thought if I pretended not to remember, that we could go back to where we were before-Felicity

I'll take all of loves pain, if it means I can feel some of loves happiness.-Felicity (unknown)

Sometimes it's the smallest decisions that can change your life forever.-Felicity (Felicity)

I guess when your heart gets broken, you sort of start to see the cracks in everything. I'm convinced that tragedy wants to harden us, and that our mission is to never let it.-Felicity (Sally)

I guess I'm learning, little by little, that we decide what our lives are going to be. Things happen to us, but it is our reactions that matter.-Felicity (Sally)

Sometimes bad things just happen - no reason, no purpose. They just occur and we're left to pick up the pieces the best we can.-Felicity (Sally)

Our best decisions, the ones that we never regret, come from listening to ourselves.-Felicity (Sally)

Love is complicated - full of sacrifice and compromise. But maybe that’s the best part.-Felicity (Sally)

I'm just saying, you know, you can't know, who that person is, the person who will become your ultimate confidant, your soul mate, or your lover. He maybe that guy you had your eye on for years, or he might be that guy standing next to you in torn jeans buying some part of his motorcycle. Whoever it is, he starts off as a stranger, so...could be anyone.-Felicity (Sally)

-Friends-

"Y'know what, I've got to walk out of here right now, 'cause getting over you is the hardest thing that I have ever had to do. I don't think I could do it again."-Friends (Monica)

-Gilmore Girls-

A few weeks ago you told me that Lane had a crush on me, well I have a crush on her too. Now I know you have very strict rules on dating and boys but I just want to you to know that I am a good person. I don't smoke. I don't drink. I have never gotten a ticket. I'm healthy. I take care of myself. I floss. I never watch more than 30 minutes of television a night; partly because I think it's a waste of time and partly because there is nothing on. I respect my parents. I do well in school. I never play video games, in case they do some day prove that playing them can turn you into a serial killer. I don't drink coffee. I hate soda because the carbonation freaks me out. I'm happy to give up meat if you feel strongly about it. I don't mind wearing a tie. I enjoy playing those hymns on my guitar. And I really, really want to take your daughter to the prom.-Gilmore Girls (Dave)

Because sometimes you have something you need to say but you can't because the words won't come out or you get scared or you feel stupid, so if you could write a song and sing it then you could say what you need to say and it would be beautiful and people would listen and you wouldn't make a complete idiot out of yourself, but all of us can't be songwriters so some of us will never be able to say what we're thinking or what we want other people to know what we're thinking so we'll never get the chance to make things right again ever-Gilmore Girls

I'm not the girl who cries and falls apart.  I'm not the girl that calls her ex-boyfriend to come and save her-Gilmore Girls (Loralei)

-My So Called Life-
 

Things are getting to me. Just how people are. How they expect you to be a certain way. Even your best friend. -My So Called Life

I know in the past I've caused you pain and I'm sorry. And I'll always be sorry 'till the day I die. And I hate this pen I'm holding because I should be holding you. I hate this paper under my hand because it isn't you. I even hate this letter because it's not the whole truth. Because the whole truth is so much more than a letter can even say. If you want to hate me, go ahead. If you want to burn this letter, do it. You could burn the whole world down; you could tell me to go to hell. I'd go, if you wanted me to. And I'd send you a letter from there.-My So Called Life

Love is when you look into someone's eyes and suddenly you go all the way inside, to their soul, and you both know instantly.-My So Called Life

There are so many different ways to be connected to people. There are the people you feel this unspoken connection to, even though there's not even a word for it. There's the people who you've known forever who know you in this way that other people can't because they've seen you change. They've let you change.-My So Called Life

My parents keep asking how school was. It's like saying, "How was that drive-by shooting?" You don't care how it *was*, you're lucky to get out alive.-My So Called Life (Angela)

It's like you think you're safe or something, 'cause you can just walk away, anytime, because you don't like, need her. You don't need anyone. But the thing you didn't realize is, you're wrong-My So Called Life

I have this connection with him, though he doesn't see it...it's like when I turn around, without a reason I can think of, he's passing by or standing nearby. I can pick him out of a crowd of over one hundred almost instantly. Sometimes it's almost as I can feel his presence.-My So Called Life

I loved him so much.  And talked about him so much. And thought about him so much. It was like he lived inside me. Like he had taken possession of my soul or something. And then one day...I got over him.-My So Called Life (Angela)

Huge events take place on this earth every day, Earthquakes, hurricanes, even glaciers move. So why couldn't he just look at me?-My So Called Life (Angela)

When I was little I, like, worshipped Halloween. And truthfully, part of me still does. 'Cause it's your one chance all year to be someone else.-My So Called Life

Sometimes it seems like we're all living in some kind of prison. And the crime is how much we hate ourselves. It's good to get really dressed up once in a while. And admit the truth: that when you really look closely? People are so strange and so complicated that they're actually... beautiful. Possibly even me.-My So Called Life (Angela)

School is a battlefield... for your heart.-My So Called Life (Angela)

Sometimes someone says something really small and it just fits into this empty place in your heart.-My So Called Life (Angela)

-One Tree Hill-

Don't be afraid, Peyton. Every song has a CODA, a final movement. Whether it fades out or crashes away. Every song ends, but is that any reason not to enjoy the music?- One Tree Hill

Most of our life is a series of images. They pass us by like towns on the highway. But sometimes, a moment stuns us as it happens. And we know that this instant is more than a fleeting image. We know that this moment, every part of it, will live on forever.- One Tree Hill

It's been fifty years, fifty long years since I've done this. Looking back on what I said all those years ago, all the hopes and dreams I had, I've come to the conclusion that if having things turn out the way you wanted them to is a measure of a successful life, then some would say I'm a failure. The important thing is not to be bitter over life's disappointments. Learn to let go of the past. And recognize that every day won't be sunny. But when you find yourself lost in the darkness of despair, remember it's only in the black of night that you can see the stars. And those stars will lead you back home. So, don't be afraid to make mistakes. To stumble and fall. Coz, most of the time, the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most. Maybe you'll get everything you wish for. Maybe, you'll get more than you ever could've imagined. Who knows where life will take you. The road is long. And in the end, the journey is the destination-one tree hill

Sometimes pain becomes such a big part of your life that you expect it to always be there. Because you can't remember a time in your life when it wasn't. But then one day you feel something else. Something that feels wrong only because it's so unfamiliar. And in that moment, you realize you're happy.- One Tree Hill

And I used to miss you so much, but it never seemed like you missed me, I guess because of that I stopped missing you. -One Tree Hill

There comes a time when every life goes off course. In this desperate moment, you must choose your direction. Will you fight to stay on the path? Will others tell you who you are or will you label yourself? Will you be haunted by your choice or will you embrace your new path? Each morning you choose to move forward or to simply give up.- One Tree Hill

There are moments in our lives when we find ourselves at a crossroads. The choices we make in those moments can define the rest of our days. Of course, when faced with the unknown, most of us prefer to turn around and go back.- One Tree Hill

Why do all the hardest days seem to last the longest?- One Tree Hill

I don’t really think people can change. You know, at the end of the day you are who you are, and it’s probably who you’ve always been.- One Tree Hill

I guess I should have said something. Anything. I mean, for a guy who wants to be a writer, it suddenly seemed like no words had ever been written. But when someone tells you that they somehow stopped missing you, you’re pretty much screwed no matter what you say.- One Tree Hill

Sometimes it’s easy to feel like you’re the only one in the world who’s struggling, who’s frustrated, or unsatisfied, or barely getting by. But that feeling’s a lie. And if you just hold on, just find the courage to face it all for another day, someone or something will find you and make it all okay. Because we all need a little help sometimes. Someone to help us hear the music in the world, to remind us that it won’t always be this way. That someone is out there. And that someone will find you.- One Tree Hill

You know, it’s not that easy to change who you are, but it helps when people let you try- One Tree Hill

Every once in a while, people step up. They rise above themselves. Sometimes they surprise you. And sometimes they fall short. Life is funny sometimes. It can push pretty hard. But if you look close enough, you find hope in the words of children, in the bars of a song and in the eyes of someone you love. And if you’re lucky, I mean if you’re the luckiest person on this entire planet, the person you love decides to love you back. - One Tree Hill

Does this darkness have a name? This cruelty, this hatred, how did it find us? Did it steal into our lives, or did we seek it out and embrace it? What happened to us? That we now send our children into the world like we send young men to war... Hoping for their safe return... But knowing that some will be lost along the way. When did we lose our way? Consumed by the shadows, swallowed whole by the darkness. Does this darkness have a name? Is it your name?.” - One Tree Hill

And once you lose yourself, you have two choices: find the person you used to be or lose that person completely- One Tree Hill

You’re way too young not to believe it’s gonna be okay- One Tree Hill

Regret comes in all shapes and sizes. Some are small, like when we do a bad thing for a good reason. Some are bigger, like when we let down a friend. Some of us escape the pangs of regret by making the right choice. Some of us have little time for regret because we're looking forward to the future. Sometimes we have to fight to come to terms with the past. And sometimes we bury our regret by promising to change our ways. But our biggest regrets are not for the things we did, but for the things we didn't do. Things we didn't say, that could have saved someone we care about, especially when we can see the dark storm that's headed their way.- One Tree Hill

Just so you know, the only thing I really want is to see him laugh again. You know, hear him sing off-key. Watch him roll his eyes at me when I steal french fries off his plate. -One Tree Hill

Anna:  Why do relationships have to be so hard? Peyton:  Because the only thing harder is being alone.-One Tree Hill (Anna and Peyton)

People that are meant to be together always find their way in the end.-One Tree Hill

Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach.  The world you desire can be won.  It exists.  It is real.  It is possible.  It is yours.-One Tree Hill (Lucas)

As happens sometimes a moment settled and hovered and remained for much more than a moment.  And sound stopped and movement stopped for much, much more than a moment.  And then the moment was gone.-One Tree Hill (Lucas)

What a frightening thing is the human, a mass of gauges and dials and registers.  And we can read only a few.  And those perhaps not accurately.-One Tree Hill (Lucas)

It hurts worse when you’re expecting so much more from someone-One Tree Hill (Peyton)

How many moments in your life can you point to and say, "That's when it all changed"? You just had one.-One Tree Hill (Brooke)

-OC-

She can't fall for you if you're not there to catch her- The OC

The sooner you realize things will never be the same again, the sooner you can move on. -The OC

You can’t get caught up in something that’s never gonna happen, you gotta look for the next best thing.-The OC (Ryan)

Where I come from, having a dream doesn't make you smart. Knowing it won't come true ... that does.-The OC (Ryan)

-Roswell-

Well, I guess the natural place to start is...that I'm an alien...a hybrid, actually. You know, human DNA mixed with alien DNA...that kind of thing. Oh, I almost forgot. My sister Isabel and our friend Michael are also a little green around the gills.-Roswell (Max)

Nicholas: Killed anyone today? Tess: Day’s not over-Roswell (Nicholas and Tess)

Max: Michael. The idea that Alex might have died just because we're here... I can't bear it. All those times you would run off chasing some clue to find out where we come from. Why we're here. Where we belong. I always thought you were chasing something that wasn't out there, because in my heart, I believed that we belonged here, you  know? That we were human. Lately, I've been thinking that you might have been right all along. Michael: Lately, I've been thinking I might have been wrong all along.-Roswell (Max and Michael)

The reason you didn't get the flashes is because I didn't let you get them. I didn't let you see me. I've never let anyone see me before... because there are things inside of me that I don't want people to see. There's things inside of me that I'm not so proud of. But I've thought about it, and I want you to see me.-Roswell (Michael)

October 28th. I've missed a few days. But in my absence I've been thinking about some things, about life before Max Evans saved me, of how I used to pray for something to happen, something to just break the routine, you know, of school and work...something that would make a small town feel bigger, that would make a small town girl feel bigger, too. And ever since I got my wish and Max Evans patched a bullet hole 2 inches below my ribs, I realized one thing...that the bigger your world gets, the bigger your problems get, too.-Roswell (Liz)

Have you ever had a moment when you're with the one person in the world you want to be with, and the wind is blowing through your hair and the song that just describes your entire soul happens to come on. And the person you happen to want to be with happens to love the same song and suddenly you realize your listening to it together? And that no matter how crazy your life has gotten, there's this one moment... this perfect moment where you could just say that no matter what happens, nothing could take this moment away from me... and then something does.-Roswell (Liz)

I could act like a person. But then I'd have to fake it.-Roswell (Michael)

The tough thing about following your heart is what people forget to mention, that sometimes your heart takes you to places you shouldn't be, places that are as scary as they are exciting and as dangerous as they are alluring, and sometimes your heart takes you to places that can never lead to a happy ending...And once you do, you can never go back.-Roswell (Liz)

It's funny how the world changes sometimes, how the streets you walked your entire life seem darker, colder. How the silence isn't so quiet anymore. How eyes you've barely even noticed now look at nothing but you. How the walk home every night is no longer routine, but a victory. And then you begin to wonder...maybe it's not the world that's changed. Maybe it's just you…and then, suddenly...you begin to wonder all over again.-Roswell (Liz)

What I wrote in my journal, it didn't really have anything to do with science. Um...that day that you saved me, I felt something that I just had to put into words...so years from now, if anyone ever...if anyone ever touches me the way that you did, I'll know what it's supposed to feel like.-Roswell (Liz)

 

Liz, when I was in that room, and they did what they did to me. You're what kept me alive. The thought of you. The way your eyes look into mine. Your smile. The touch of your skin. Your lips. Knowing you has made me human. Whether I die tomorrow or fifty years from now, my destiny is the same: it's you. I want to be with you, Liz. I love you.-Roswell (Max)

 

And there we were. All together, with everything we'd all been through over the last two years. The battles we'd fought, the relationships that were formed, the feelings for each other, stronger than any feelings we'd ever known could exist. And somehow in this moment I had this really strong, really upsetting feeling, that this was the last time we'd all be standing together.-Roswell (Liz)

We try to live responsible, logical lives. But we can't tell our hearts how to feel. Sometimes our hearts lead us to places we never thought we wanted to go. And sometimes are hearts can be the sweetest, gentlest things we have. Sometimes are hearts can make us feel miserable, angry, excited and confused, all at once. But at least my heart is open. And I'm writing again. I'm feeling. I'm breathing.-Roswell (Liz)

Do you realize what you are to me? What you're always going to be? You are the love of my life ... everyone else will always be second best. There will never be another you.-Roswell (Liz)

Hi. I'm, ah, I'm Max Evans. I'd like to take this opportunity to, ah... to say a few things on behalf of myself... and the graduating class... ...Some of us are here tonight to walk across this stage, 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 their family... and friends... ...you see, this... this group has been through 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 end... it 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... for letting me live among you. Thank you for giving me a family... Thank you for giving me a home-Roswell (Max)

-Sex and the City-

Maybe the past is like an anchor holding us back. Maybe, you have to let go of who you were to become who you will be.- Sex and the City

I've come to realize guys are like drugs, either they'll kill you or give you the most amazing high of your life - Sex and the City

The universe may not always play fair, but at least it's got a hell of a sense of humor-Sex and the City

The truth is no matter who broke your heart, or how long it takes for it to heal, you won't get through it without your friends.-Sex and the City

-Simpsons-

I don't know why I did it, I don't know why I enjoyed it, and I don't know why I'll do it again.-The Simpsons (Bart)

Son, a woman is like a beer. They smell good, they look good, you'd step over your own mother just to get one! But you can't stop at one. You wanna drink another woman!-The Simpsons (Homer)

You can’t save someone that doesn’t want to be saved-Smallville (Chloe)

I wanna let you in on a secret...I'm not who you think I am. In fact my disguise is so thin, I'm surprised you haven’t seen right through me...I'm the girl of your dreams masquerading as your best friend...Sometimes I want to rip off this facade...but I can't, 'cause you'll get scared and you'll run away again. So I've decided it's better to live with a lie than to expose my true feelings...My dad told me there are two types of girls: the one you grow out of and the ones you grow into...I really hope I'm the latter...I may not be the one you love today but I’ll let you go for now, hoping one day you'll fly back to me, 'cause I think you're worth the wait.-Smallville(Chloe)

-Wonder Years-

 

That night we talked. About life. About our times together. Maybe we weren't the same two kids we had once been. But some things never change. Some things last. And even though I didn't know what was going to happen to us, or where we were going ... I just knew I couldn't let her out of my life.- The Wonder Years

 

In high school, there were days when you felt like nothing was worth getting out of bed for. But then, you remembered you were going to see him... your day was gonna have all these moments... moments that were full of possibility, when you were sure that something... something was gonna happen.-The Wonder Years

 

Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.-The Wonder Years

-X Files-

You know, I never stop to think... that the light is billions of years old by the time we see it, from the beginning of time right past us into the future. Nothing is ancient in the universe. But, maybe they are souls, Scully. Traveling through time as starlight, looking for homes.-X Files (Mulder)

Time passes in moments... moments which, rushing past define the path of a life just as surely as they lead towards its end. How rarely do we stop to examine that path, to see the reasons why all things happen, to consider whether the path we take in life is our own making or simply one into which we drift with eyes closed. But what if we could stop, pause to take stock of each precious moment before it passes? Might we then see the endless forks in the road that have shaped a life? And, seeing those choices, choose another path?-X Files (Scully)

One day, you look at the person and see more than you did the day before, like a switch was flickered somewhere and the person who was just a friend is suddenly the only person you can imagine yourself with-X Files (Scully)

What I find fantastic is any notion that there are answers beyond the realm of science. The answers are there. You just have to know where to look.-X Files (Scully)

All these people putting bars on their windows, spending good money on hi-tech security systems, trying to feel safe. I look at this guy and I think, it ain't enough.-X Files (Mulder)

We send those men up into space to unlock the doors of the universe, and we don't even know what's behind them.-X Files (Mulder)

The conquest of fear lies in the moment of its acceptance. And understanding what scares us most is that which is most familiar, most common place...it's been said that the fear of the unknown is an irrational response to the excesses of the imagination. But our fear of the everyday, of the lurking stranger, and the sound of foot-falls on the stairs, the fear of violent death and the primitive impulse to survive, are as frightening as any x-file, as real as the acceptance that it could happen to you.-X Files (Mulder)

Mulder ... When they found me, after the doctors and even my family had given up, I experienced something that I never told you about. Even now it's hard to find the words. But there's one thing I'm certain of. As certain as I am of this life, we have nothing to fear when it's over.-X Files (Scully)

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you, Scully-X Files (Mulder)

In the desert, things find a way to survive. Secrets are like this too. They push their way up through the sands of deception so that men can know them.-X Files (Albert)

There is an ancient Indian saying that something lives only as long as the last person who remembers it. My people have come to trust memory over history. Memory, like fire, is radiant and immutable while history serves only those who seek to control it, those who douse the flame of memory in order to put out the dangerous fire of truth. Beware these men for they are dangerous themselves and unwise. Their false history is written in the blood of those who might remember and of those who seek the truth.-X Files (Albert)

Then there are those who care not about extraterrestrials, searching for meaning in other human beings. Rare or lucky are those who find it. For although we may not be alone in the universe, in our own separate ways on this planet, we are all... alone.-X Files (Jose Chung)

-Young Americans-
 
Everyday the mystery of life unfolds and every night we go to sleep not quite sure if we solved it.-Young Americans (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?-Young Americans (Will)
 
And so, our adventure begins. We find our heroes, and we uncover our fears, and sometimes, we triumph.-Young Americans (Will)

You asked me to write an essay telling you what I have to say, and what I realized is that I've been ordered to listen from the moment I was born, but now I know it's my time to speak. What I figured out is that I've always seen myself as others have seen me. This poor kid, this smart kid, this dreamer who doesn't have a chance... so now that it's my time to speak, I just hope I have something to say.-Young Americans (Will)

When exactly did we go from being kids to just being people, I'm not sure. I do know that it's not about turning a certain age or graduating from school. It happens when you're not paying attention. We go from playing with our friends to playing with our friend's 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.-Young Americans (Will)

When I was little I had this idea that life could be perfect. That if you were careful enough, you'd never make a mistake, never be lonely, never be misunderstood, never be frightened, but it doesn't work that way. Life is big and messy, and you just have to climb in it with your boots on and hope for the best.-Young Americans (Will)

And so our adventure ends. And some of us found our heroes, and others uncovered their fears. And one might even say...we've triumphed. I'm not sure if it happened that day or that summer, but somehow, we all felt older and different. I knew I'd never forget any of it and I decided I wasn't gonna let it end because I realized we're not just given life experience, we're given the experience of life.-Young Americans (Will)

Everyday the mystery of life unfolds, and every night we go to sleep not quite sure we solved it. But today, on this last day of summer session, I woke up sure of one thing, me.-Young Americans
