Love is when you look into someone's eyes and suddenly you go all the way inside, to their soul, and you both know instantly. I always imagined I'd fall in love nursing a blind soldier who was wounded in battle. Or maybe while rescuing someone in the middle of a blizzard, seconds before the avalanche hits. I thought at least by the age of fifteen I'd have a love life, but I don't even have a, like, life. --Angela

Jordan: Why are you like this?
Angela: Like what?
Jordan: Like how you are.
Angela: How am I?

Jordan: This doesn't seem like a Friday.
Angela: It's Thursday
Jordan: Oh, are you sure?
Angela: Yesterday was Wednesday, so...
Jordan: Oh, right.
Angela: So that's how I know.

Brian: Is, Rayanne, I mean, does she, like...Is Angela, like...I mean, the thing is...
Ricky: Hey, hey, Brian. Could you, like, pick a sentence and go with it?

I was going nowhere
Going nowhere fast
Drowning in my memories
Living in the past
Everything looked black 'til I found her
She's all I need and that's what I said
I call her Red...
She's my shelter from the storm
She's a place to rest my head
Late at night she keeps me safe and warm
I call her Red...
