You [Deacon] might die, but if you do, I would rather have us be together, the way we were always meant to be, for as long as possible, and if something horrible happens, well then, I would rather my girls have the opportunity to see what true love looks like. I don't ever want to protect them from that, even if it ends. You are not going to be able to protect us from the pain of this. You're just not. So let's at least experience the joy of whatever life has to offer for us right now. Please stop fighting me. Fight for us. We screwed this thing up a million times but we're not gonna do that now.

Rayna: You've always said that you wanted to be the man that I know you are, and now you have the opportunity to do that with me by your side.
Deacon: It's not that simple, Rayna.
Rayna: Of course it is. What are you so afraid of? Do you not believe in us enough?
Deacon: [sighs]
Rayna: Well, if you were trying to break my heart, you just did.

Deacon: I will be damned if I'm gonna drag you through all the hurt and the disappointment, look at the pity in your eyes.
Rayna: Look in my eyes. That's not pity. It's love. Don't you get that?

You [Deacon] leaving like that hurts. It hurts as bad as it did the first time you ever did it. And I know we've skipped a few steps here, but babe, please don't leave me anymore.

Hey Pete. I'm not exactly sure what your problem is. Maybe the good Lord only gave you two inches. I don't know. But I'll tell you one thing. You ever try to contact my friend again or in any way mess with her, I will make it my mission to ruin you. And unlike you, I actually have the power to do it.

Rayna: Well you [Mr. Benton] may not be aware that she [Layla] is also underage and very recently overdosed on pills and almost drowned in Jeff Fordham's pool.
Jeff: Mr. Benton, I...
Rayna: You coerced my ex husband so you could cover up the incident, but I'm not gonna sit here and watch while he treats his female artists like this, and I sure as hell don't want my daughter having anything to do with it.

Rayna: Are you thinking this is just going to make you the cool Dad or do you really think this is a good idea?
Teddy: Yes I do, and I have every right to make decisions regarding my daughter's life?
Rayna: Not if I can help it you don't.

I love you [Deacon]. I've loved you since the first time I ever laid eyes on you. The first time I ever heard you play a note on the guitar. First time I ever heard you laugh. And even through all the hell we put each other through, I love you now.

Luke: I mean, hell, before me you were mortgaged to the hilt, saddled with an album that wasn't commercial, I mean persona non grata on country radio... But now look at you. You got a platinum album, a sold out tour, and all those CMA awards. I mean now that you got your six statues, I guess you don't needs my seven carats. You can keep the damn ring by the way.
Rayna: Well if that's how you feel about it, guess I dodged a bullet, didn't I?

Rayna: It's me, it's who I've always been. It's who I need to be.
Luke: I love you Rayna.
Rayna: I love you too, and I can't make you a casualty of my life. You don't deserve that.

I just want to make sure it's my life I'm living.

Deacon: I know now why I got so upset about that article. It's because it was true. Everything you said in that article is true. I've never been able to let go of you. I didn't let go when you married Teddy. I haven't let go after all these years. I'm not letting you go now. So you were right. I have to ask myself why. Why am I not letting go?
Rayna: Why won't you?
Deacon: Because I love you. That's it. It's easy. I always have and you're gonna have to just deal with the fact that that aint gonna change.
