Quotes

No it's not possible because it was the other way around. I liked her. I was the one with the crush.
— Courtney Crimsen, while being questioned during the trial.
What's the truth? What's true? I think we each have our own truth
— Courtney Crimsen
We all have things we keep hidden, sometimes keeping secrets is how you survive, because in high school, one rumor, one picture, one incident can define you, forever.
— Courtney
Todd: You're doing the right thing, honey.
Courtney: I know. Now it's gonna be out there. Everything I said in my deposition.
Todd: Look, what happened to Hannah, after that photo, it happened to you, too. And that is not your fault.
Steve: You told the truth. And that's all you're gonna do again today.
— Todd and Steve reassuring Courtney, who is nervous on being in court
When rumors spread, you can fight them or ignore them, but they never really go away. When you're the target, you do anything you can to protect yourself. Sometimes you hide. Sometimes you fight back. Anything you have to do. Because the thing is, in high school, everyone's watching you all the time. You have to be careful
— Courtney

This was the dress I was wearing the day I found Hannah. I always meant to wash it but I just couldn't bring myself to.

Clay: So, let me get this straight.
Hallucination Hannah: Okay.
Clay: You don't know why you're here, you don't know how I'm supposed to feel about it, you don't know why I haven't seen you and even though I haven't tried to think about in months and then you show up tonight.
Hallucination Hannah: Precise and accurate, in true Clay Jensen style.
Clay: And you're still allowed to make fun of me.
Hallucination Hannah: Allowed? Obligated? Who can say?
— Clay talking to Hallucination Hannah as a very real hallucination
Clay: Are you real?

Hallucination Hannah: That seems like a science-fiction question.
Clay: Can I touch you?
Hallucination Hannah: That seems like a loaded question.
Clay: This is fucked up, right? Like I-I'm seriously fucked up.
Hallucination Hannah: I don't think you're fucked up. I think you're just, working through things.
Clay: Things like seeing a ghost?
Hallucination Hannah: And other things.
Clay: So you are a ghost?
Hallucination Hannah: Okay, does it matter what you call me?! I'm here.
Clay: And you're here for a reason?
Hallucination Hannah: I would think so.
Clay: But you don't know what it is?
Hallucination Hannah: I was hoping you would.
Clay: And you're not going away?
Hallucination Hannah: I don't think so, I mean, not for the moment.
Clay: [scoffs] Well, that's just fucking great.

Clay: Why don't you tell me?
Lainie: I was just there to drop off some files. What about you?
Clay: I was just curious.
Lainie: Clay, I know you said you don't think about Hannah, that you don't care about her anymore, but I am worried that that's not true.
Clay: I gotta get dressed for school.
Lainie: Well... okay.
Clay: Okay.
— Lainie and Clay on being at court and Lainie on Clay thinking about Hannah
Hallucination Hannah: Nothing's going on?
Clay: I have to go to school.
Hallucination Hannah: And you don't care about me anymore?
Clay: Look, I tried Hannah. I did everything I could for you, and nothing worked. Nothing. And now you're back and there's still nothing I can do.
Hallucination Hannah: If that's true, why am I here?
Clay: Yeah. Exactly.
— Clay, frustrated that Hallucination Hannah is there, not knowing what else he can do.
[Clay picks up the first Polaroid he is given]
Hallucination Hannah: "Hannah wasn't the only one"? What do you suppose that means? Who gave it to you? And why now, the day my trial started?
Clay: You think they're connected?
Hallucination Hannah: You think they're not?
Clay: [sighs] I think that I need to get dressed and go to school and try to live my life.
