Mark: Last chance…
Amy: Last chance for what?
Mark: Last chance to run from me, from Vic and my childhood baggage.

Mark: Amy Quinn, I could not have asked for a better partner. You challenge me. You push me to be better, and you encourage me to be better. You never ever let me get away with anything. I couldn’t imagine my life without you.

Vic: Yeah, you too, kid.

Ness: Girl, yes. I know a little something about having boundaries. If you ever need an ear or anything.
Amy: Thank you, but I came here to escape them, so can we talk about anything else?

Amy: I moved away.
Amy’s mom: You married Collier, who was the best thing to ever happen to you, and then you left him, too. Let’s see how long it takes you to run away from Mark.

You erased your accent. I changed my last name. It’s funny, and here we are facing the thing our whole lifetimes trying to run away from.


Mr. Lawrence, we will all help you to become a productive member of our community.
