Bailey: You know what I like most about the stars? You look at them, at all of them up there... and you just know there's gotta be something more than...
Tibby: Life?
Bailey: There has to be
Tibby: Are you scared?
Bailey: Not of dying, really It's more that I'm afraid of time. And not having enough of it. Time to figure out who I'm supposed to be... to find my place in the world before I have to leave it. I'm afraid of what I'll miss.

[voiceover] It would be easy to say that the pants changed everything that summer. But looking back now I feel like our lives changed because they had to, and that the real magic of the pants was in bearing witness to all of this and in somehow holding us together when it felt like nothing would ever be the same again.


Tibby: How old are you, anyway? 10?
Bailey: I'm 12!
Tibby: Same difference.
Bailey: No, when I was 10 I didn't have an iPod.
Tibby: Mhm, you're so cool. And what do you listen to on there, teletubbies hit parade?

Lena: Papou, I need to say something to you. You can pretend that you don't understand me, but I know you do. People have always said to me that I take after Yia Yia, that I have her face and her smile, but what no-one ever sees is that there's this whole other part of me that's just like you: quiet, and-and stubborn, and afraid of showing too much... and then I met someone who changed everything and he showed me that I can take a chance even when it's only for a moment...

I am mad at my dad. I am MAD at my dad. Why is that so hard for me to see, Tibby? I have no problem being mad at you.


[in a video-recording] Hey, it's me, Bailey. You don't have to use this in your movie or anything, although now that I think of it, fainting in Wallman's does kind of qualify me as a loser. But then again, wearing a price sticker on your forehead probably makes you one, too. Ya know, I don't know, Tibby, maybe the truth is there's a little bit of loser in all of us, ya know? Being happy isn't having everything in your life be perfect. Maybe it's about stringing together all the little things like wearing these pants or getting to a new level of Dragon's Lair - making those count for more than the bad stuff. Maybe we just get through it... and that's all we can ask for.


You need to have a little faith, Tibby. Not everyone you love is going to leave you.

Brian McBrian

Bailey: So, uh, who told you?
Tibby: Uh, told me what?
Bailey: You found out, didn't you?
Tibby: We still have time for one more interview...
Bailey: It's called leukemia... and yeah, I would like to come with you, but are you just asking because you feel sorry for me?
Tibby: I don't know... maybe.
Bailey: Okay.
Tibby: Okay.

Wear them. They'll make you brave.


[about the price tag gun] You are really good with that thing! Took me weeks to get the hang of it.


Bridget: We ate every single bit of that pizza in like 10 minutes.
Tibby: Yeah.
Bridget: And we were laughing the whole time. It was great. I remember thinking that maybe there won't be any more bad spells. Maybe she'll just be happy like this forever.
Carmen: It's okay to miss her, Bee. I mean, as hard as it is to be sad about it don't you think maybe it's harder not to be?
Bridget: [Crying] You don't understand.
Tibby: [long pause] Bridge...
Bridget: I can't. It hurts too much.
Carmen: I know.
Bridget: No, you don't know. I just want to feel good and happy and alive. Because if I feel alive then it doesn't seem like she's dead. And if I'm not sad then it proves that I'm not like her.
Carmen: Bee, you don't have to prove that to anybody. I mean, you have a strength in you that your mom never had. As much as she wanted to, she couldn't find it.
Tibby: Yeah, and you have something else too.
Bridget: What?
Tibby: You have us. And we're not gonna let you go anywhere, okay?
Bridget: Thank you.
Carmen: Come here.

Bridget: Craziest part is we actually ate it.
Carmen: Of course you did.
