Ben Campbell: I had a 1590 on my SAT, I got a 44 on my MCAT, and I have a 4.0 GPA from MIT. I thought I had my life mapped out, but then I remembered what my non linear equations professor once told me, always account for variable change... I let down my good friends, but as it turns out, they weren't too bad at simple math either. I scored the prettiest girl in school. I got beaten down by an old school Vegas thug who was having trouble accepting his retirement, but I worked out a deal with him that got him a nice pension... And I lied to my mother, but I confessed a lie and well, she still loved me... So my senior year of college I joined this team and I learned this new skill. I went to Vegas 17 times to use it. I made hundreds of thousands of dollars counting cards. And then I had it all stolen from me, twice... How's that for life experience professor? Did I dazzle you? Did I jump off the page?
Susanna: narrating Have you ever confused a dream with life? Or stolen something when you have the cash? Have you ever been blue? Or thought your train moving while sitting still? Maybe I was just crazy. Maybe it was the 60's. Or maybe I was just a girl... interrupted.
Lucy Hardwicke: You know that was really hard for me to say? I mean what are you trying to do scare me? Well congratulations!
Tracy: Hit me. I'm serious, I can't feel anything, hit me! Again, do it harder! I can't feel anything, this is awesome!
Sean: What? You don't live in what world? The world of first dates? Of holding hands?
Billie: ... and when she was good she was very good and when she was bad she was horrid.
Heather Chandler: Is this turnout weak or what? I had at least 70 more people at my funeral.
Sylvia: My mom started flipping out saying that New York was all about sex and drugs and I just wanted to say, you know what, I’m not a virgin, I already have a tattoo and I do a ton of drugs here.
Diana McFee: bedtime story she reads to Emma When the voices of children are heard on the green. And laughing is heard on the hill. My heart is at rest within my breast. And everything else is still. Then come home my children, the sun is gone down. And the dews of night arise. Come, come, let us play, and let us away. Till the morning appears in the skies. No, no, let us play, for it is yet day. And we cannot go to sleep. Besides, in the sky the little birds fly. And the hills are all covered with sheep. Well, well, go and play till the light fades away. And then go home to bed. The little ones leaped and shouted and laughed. And all the hills echoed.
Ivy: about Melinda's art project It's scary, like in a weird way, not clown scary, um how do I say this? It's like you don't wanna look at it too long.
Finn Earl: final statement of the introductory narration This is my story of my time amongst the Fierce People. During the summer of 1980, in deepest, darkest, New Jersey.
Finn Earl: We are the sum of all the people we ever met.
