And like that, she was gone. We gave our statements. Nick and Remy the same. All of us spared any blame for Amanda's death. Jack Doyle resigned on the condition that he and he alone be held accountable. He was granted the dignity of early retirement, but the humiliation of half a pension. It was an ignominious end to an illustrious career.

I couldn't stop running it over and over and over in my mind. The vague and distant suspicion that we never understood what happened that night; what our role was. Or maybe it was just like the hundreds of other children who disappear each year and never return. Amanda was even more haunting for never being found.

Angie Gennaro: They told me what happened. I'm proud of you. That man killed a child. He had no right to live.
Patrick Kenzie: You're proud of me?
Angie Gennaro: Of course I am. You did what you had to do.

Detective Remy Bressant: Would you do it again? Clip Corwin Earle?
Patrick Kenzie: No.
Detective Remy Bressant: Does that make you right?
Patrick Kenzie: I don't know.
Detective Remy Bressant: It doesn't make it wrong, though, does it?

I did what I did for the sake of the child. All right. For me, too. But now, I'm asking you for the sake of the child. I'm begging you. You think about it.

Capt. Jack Doyle

Lars Lindstrom: I was hoping winter was over.
Margo: No, it's just a thaw - winter isn't over till Easter.

Margo: What are you doing Friday night?
Lars Lindstrom: I have a school board meeting. Bianca got elected, so...

Lars Lindstrom: How was the game?
Gus: The cheese inspectors beat the crap out of us.

[after giving some flowers to Bianca] See they're even fake so they'll never die.

Lars Lindstrom

Lars Lindstrom: You don't care.
Karin: We don't care? We do care!
Lars Lindstrom: No you don't.
Karin: That is just not true! God! Every person in this town bends over backward to make Bianca feel at home. Why do you think she has so many places to go and so much to do? Huh? Huh? Because of you! Because - all these people - love you! We push her wheelchair. We drive her to work. We drive her home. We wash her. We dress her. We get her up, and put her to bed. We carry her. And she is not petite, Lars. Bianca is a big, big girl! None of this is easy - for any of us - but we do it... Oh! We do it for you! So don't you dare tell me how we don't care.

Kurt: Listen up, Margo, those action figures are very important to me. They're worth a lot of money. And if I don't see every damned one back on my desk pretty soon, then, you can tell your teddy to watch his back.
Margo: [returns one action figure] I'll return them, one at a time... You going to Cindy's party?
Lars Lindstrom: Oh, no.
Margo: I was hoping you would. I really wish you would.
Lars Lindstrom: Do you think I could bring my girlfriend?
Margo: Oh, um, yeah, yeah, I'm totally bringing somebody
Lars Lindstrom: Hm.

Sometimes I get so lonely I forget what day it is, and how to spell my name.
