Quotes

You think about Hannah and you disappear. So just do it for real this time.
— Skye to Clay
That the truth didn't matter. That's just what they do to girls at our school. I mean, I found these just this morning in my math class. They take one photo and it defines you. And then it becomes your job to prove everyone wrong. This is what they did to Hannah and now they are doing it to me.
— Jessica testifying in court
I'm not worried about you. I know you but I also know how things go. They can turn a victim into a villain. A monster into a martyr.
— Edward Cole to Marcus
It's like I have all of these feelings, and I can't control them, like, I'm a visitor in my own mind. And if I don't catch my breath, I'll burn up and blow away. And I know you wanna save me from that, and I love you for it, but you can't.
— Skye to Clay
Skye is my girlfriend. But we haven't had sex, although we tried. She's in the hospital, but not because she tried to kill herself. Someone just ran me off the road, on my way home. Random? Maybe. Who knows? I can't explain any of it to you because I don't understand it myself. Now, does knowing all of this make this any better or worse for you?
— Clay Jensen to his parents
Our agreement was that we'd talk about these things.
— Lainie to Clay
When the house is on fire, do you discuss the fire or get out of the goddamn house? Oh, and I need a fucking car.
— Clay to Lainie and Matt
Clay: "I'm not just gonna disappear from your life."
Skye: "You already do, you think about Hannah and you disappear, so just do it for real this time."
―  Skye and Clay
