Kevin: One thing that I have learned is that I don't think we figure out who we are all at once. I think it happens over a long period of time, piece by piece, you know? Okay, take me for instance. A couple of years ago, I get close with your dad, and I found a piece of myself in that. I meet your aunt and I found another piece of myself. Honey, I think that's sort of how it works you know? We go through life slowly but surely collecting these little pieces of ourselves that we can't really live without until we eventually have enough of them to feel whole. Tess: And you think that'll happen for me? Kevin: Nah, probably not, I mean you're not that special. Do I think it will happen for you? I know it will happen for you! Tess Pearson, you my niece, have so many years ahead of you to find all your pieces. Now is that corny or did I nail it?
Randall: Look we all have bad days as parents. I've had some doozies and you will too. Kate: You've had some doozies? Randall: It's hard to believe but yeah. Look all you can do is pack the days with as much good stuff as possible and hope it outweighs the bad. You hope that the good stuff sticks. That's what he did for us.
