Laura Reynolds: I think I have one...
Tom Lee: Yes, I know.

Tom Lee: I'm always falling in love with the wrong people.
Laura Reynolds: Who isn't?

Tom Lee: When I was a kid here in this school, I've had my problems too. I used to sit in my room and listen to phonograph records hour after hour. I had a place where I used to go and cry my eyes out.
Laura Reynolds: Oh, Bill.
