Gus Pike: In your worst moments I've never known you to have a handkerchief.

Felicity King: I'm right here, Gus. I always will be. You're my whole life--you always have been. Ever since the first moment I saw you, there's never been anyone else. Remember? You came running into the classroom, barefoot, smoking that awful pipe. I fell in love with that boy. And when all this is over, whether you can see or not, I will marry you just as I should when you first proposed to me.
Gus: If that's a proposal, I accept.

Hetty King: What's this?
Jasper Dale: It's a b-b-baby.

Alec King: It's good to have you home, son.

Olivia Dale: We have one life to live; let's live it.

Olivia: Old Grandpa King used to say, 'When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.' So that's what we have to do. Make lemonade.

Felicity: Then I am going to stand in my wedding dress till it rots!
