"Melrose Place: Pilot (#1.1)" (1992)
Alison Parker Armstrong: Is Natalie in there?
Jake Hanson: Why is it that every time a girl doesn't show up at night, people think she's at my apartment?
Alison Parker Armstrong: Is she?

Jake Hanson: Kelly?
Kelly Taylor: Jake. Why didn't you return any of my calls? I left a bunch of messages for you. Didn't you get them?
Jake Hanson: Yeah. I was just busy working on this house, that's all.
Kelly Taylor: Jake, if you don't wanna see me then I guess that's something I'll have to deal with. But don't you think you owe me some kind of explanation? I mean, three weeks ago you show up at my mom's wedding and you say let's try to make this work, and the next thing I knew you just disappeared.
Jake Hanson: Kelly, I was there as your date. I don't remember us planning our future together.
Kelly Taylor: Don't tell me you didn't feel anything.
Jake Hanson: What do you want me to do? Spend my summer hanging out at the Beverly Hills Beach Club with you and your friends?
Kelly Taylor: I don't know. But I... I just wish you'd just stop avoiding me. It's making me crazy.

Kelly Taylor: Look, if you think I'm some stupid lovesick teenager making a fool of myself, then why don't you just tell me, okay, and I will leave. But if you really feel something for me, and you're afraid of it because you think you're too old and I'm too young. Well, I don't care what anybody thinks about us, Jake. And I don't know why you do, either.
Jake Hanson: I don't. I'm just trying to do what's right.
Kelly Taylor: What's right is what you feel. Otherwise, you're just lying to yourself.
Jake Hanson: Yeah, well sometimes you got to lie to yourself once in a while just to keep life running smoothly.

Jake Hanson: Have a nice day.
Jo Reynolds: [checking him out as he goes downstairs] I'll do my best.

And I've been worrying about you. And I'm scared to death that I just fell in love with someone that I'm gonna lose before we get started.

Jake Hanson: I've been as confused about this as she has. Even though I think about her all the time. And I look forward to being with her. And when we're together, it feels right and special. And I never thought I'd feel that way about anybody.
