Quote from Reverend TimTom

Reverend TimTom: Oh, hey, there, Sue Heck.
Sue: Hey, Reverend TimTom. Hey, listen, do you think I could have a word with you?
Reverend TimTom: Well, sure thing. You know I always have time for you. Just not a ton of time. I'm running to a praise n' putt mini-golf fundraiser, but shoot.
Sue: Okay, ever since the jubilation celebration, I've been kind of worried, 'cause it just seems like why would you change something that's already working, 'cause I think teens count on a certain kind of consistency 'cause we have stuff getting thrown at us every day. Like last night, my mom got...
Reverend TimTom: You know, if this is about moms and teens, you are in luck, because Reverend Tammy happens to be an expert.
Sue: Oh, no. No, no, no, no, no. That's okay.
Reverend TimTom: Reverend Tammy?
Sue: No, no, no. Really, honestly, Reverend TimTom, we can just do it another time.
Reverend TimTom: Tammy, would you mind rapping with my pal, Sue Heck, here?
Reverend Tammy: Happy to lend an ear. Hi, Sue Heck. Timothy's told me all about you.
Reverend TimTom: Now, I'm gonna let you two pow-wow. You're in good hands, Sue Heck. And you, I'll pick you up later. [they kiss]
Reverend Tammy: Bye, babe.


Quote from Sue

Reverend Tammy: Wow. Your mom got arrested. I can see how you might be feeling upset.
Sue: No, that's not really it.
Reverend Tammy: Well, maybe you're just concerned about how your mom's feeling right now.
Sue: No, no, not really. No, that's not... Okay, fine. Whatever.
Reverend Tammy: Look, Sue, at my sleepover jams, after we have Savior S'mores, I get to rap with a lot of girls that are in the exact same position as you. And it's a really hard age, because there's so much changing in your bodies and at school.
Sue: Wrong. Wrong again.
Reverend Tammy: I think maybe you should just lay it out there and and try talking to your mom about how you feel.
Sue: Do you? Do you think that's what I should do? Maybe if you knew me for longer than a day, you'd know that that is actually the exact opposite of what I should do. Because, you see, that's sort of a piece of, like, general advice for general teens, but it's not really very Sue specific.
Reverend Tammy: Um, maybe I could better express myself through a song. Let's see. [plays guitar and sings] Mary had one son born on Christmas day She was hoping for a daughter But she didn't have much say.
Sue: All right! I'm gonna stop you right there. I'm sorry, but singing advice doesn't really work for me. I'm just not the kind of person who responds to singing as a way of solving your problems. So... yeah.

Quote from Mike

Mike: So, there's, uh, been a lot of late nights with Cassidy, huh?
Axl: [yawns] Yeah, I guess.
Mike: How's that going?
Axl: Fine. We're just having fun.
Mike: All right.
Axl: But the only thing is, we've been having so much fun, that we haven't really had any time to, you know, talk.
Mike: And the problem here is what?
Axl: Well, she's going back to New York tomorrow. I don't know if she wants to keep in touch and be, like, a thing, or if she's more, "That was fun. Have a nice life." I just don't know what she's thinking.
Mike: Who knows what anybody's thinking? Hell, I don't know if your mom still likes me.

Quote from Reverend TimTom

Reverend TimTom: Oh, Sue, don't you understand? Making you feel better makes me feel better. It's what I do. It's how I roll. And the fact that you're unhappy, that proves that you're not selfish at all.
Reverend Tammy: [enters] [plays guitar and sings] Oh, how I hate it when we disagree
Reverend Tammy: [plays guitar and sings] I don't want to be mad at you
Reverend Tammy: I don't want you to be mad at me
Both: Let's make up, let's make up Let's make up, let's make up
Reverend TimTom: [talks] You want to talk about feelings? I'll talk about them all day long.
Reverend Tammy: [talks] You know what? We don't have to. [sings] Let's just keep singing this song
Both: [sing] Let's make up, let's make up Let's make up, let's make up

Quote from Axl

Cassidy: Well, good-byes pretty much suck, so how about we just say "So long"?
Axl: I don't know. I've always been more of a "Happy trails" guy, myself. So, uh, we never really did get around to talking.
Cassidy: Yeah, we haven't exactly done that, have we?
Axl: No. [chuckles] We really haven't.
Cassidy: But I have a surprise for you. I painted you something, 'cause sometimes it's easier than talking. And it kind of says everything about how I feel.
Axl: Really? Oh, wow.
Cassidy: I know art's not your thing, but I kind of feel like I captured it. I mean, this is us.
Axl: Yeah. Obviously, you nailed it. Totally us.
Cassidy: You get it? I didn't know if you'd get it.
Axl: Of course I do. It's all there... in this painting right here. Oh! Wow. [they kiss]
Cassidy: Okay, then. Well, happy trails.
Axl: So long.
