Graham Hess: You want me to curse?
Merrill: You don't mean it. It's just for show. What?
Graham Hess: Well, it won't be convincing. It doesn't sound natural when I curse.
Merrill: Just make noises, then.
Graham Hess: Explain "noises".
Merrill: Are you gonna do this or what?
Graham Hess: No, I'm not.
Merrill: All right, you want them stealing something in the house next time?

Colleen: Tell Morgan to play games.
Graham Hess: I will.
Colleen: It's okay to be silly... Tell Bo to listen to her brother. He'll always take care of her.
Graham Hess: I will.
Colleen: Tell Graham...
Graham Hess: I'm here.
Colleen: Tell Graham... to see. Tell him to see. And tell Merrill to swing away.

Morgan: Maybe we should say a prayer.
Graham Hess: No.
Morgan: Why not?
Graham Hess: We're not saying a prayer.
Morgan: Bo has a bad feeling.
Bo: I had a dream.
Graham Hess: We aren't saying a prayer. Eat!
Morgan: I hate you.
Graham Hess: That's fine.
Morgan: You let Mom die.
Merrill: Morgan...
Graham Hess: I am not wasting one more minute of my life on prayer. Not one more minute. Understood?

Don't be afraid.

Graham Hess: You're scaring your sister.
Bo: I'm already scared.

Morgan, after you were born, the doctor gave you to your mother. When she first looked at you, you just stared right back. You both just stared at each other for longest time, and you didn't even cry.

[giving the dog water]
Bo: It tastes funny.
Morgan: It does not. It's just tap water. Besides, he licks his butt every day, I don't think he'll mind.

Graham Hess: [to God] Don't do this to me again. Not again. I hate you. I hate you! The fear is feeding him. Don't be afraid of what's happening. Believe it's going to pass. Believe it. Just wait. Don't be afraid. The air is coming. Believe. We don't have to be afraid. It's about to pass. Here it comes. Don't be afraid. Here comes the air. Don't be afraid, Morgan. Feel my chest. Breathe with me. Together. The air is going in our lungs. Together. We're the same. We're the same.
Merrill: We should save the flashlights.

The nerds were right.

Merrill

Morgan: We have to tape this.
Bo: My ballet recital!
Morgan: Listen, Bo. This is very important. Everything people have written about in science books is going to change. The history of the world's future is on the TV right now. We need to record this so you can show *your* children this tape and say *you* were there. For your children, Bo.
Bo: My ballet recital!

It's happening.

Graham Hess

Isabel, you are going to feel very silly when this turns out to be make-believe.
