"Hope Island: Look One Way and Row Another (#1.1)" (1999)
Father Mac: So, why were you looking for the other church?
Daniel Cooper: I'm the new minister.
Alex Stone: [seeing the angry look on Father Mac's face] Ha ha ha. Well, Father Mac. It looks like the holy man population just doubled.

Daniel Cooper: [calling to God in despair at the terrible condition of the community church] Come on, God! You call this a start? Hope you plan on giving me a hand here.

Brian Brewster: Oh, excuse me! You're trespassing on private property.
Daniel Cooper: I am the new minister.
Brian Brewster: Oh, Reverend Cooper! I'm Brian Brewster.
Daniel Cooper: I must have missed you at the ferry.
Brian Brewster: Nub said you weren't on the ferry.
Daniel Cooper: What's a nub?
Brian Brewster: [pointing to Nub who is waving hello from under a heavy stone slab] There. That would be a Nub.

Brian Brewster: [making introductions] Callie, this is Reverend Cooper. Callie Pender, who runs the island's newspaper.
Callie Pender: Oh, yeah. Hi! Maybe um... maybe I could ask you some questions for your obituary.
Daniel Cooper: I'm not dying!
Callie Pender: We're all dying, Reverend. Here I've written an obit for everyone on the island. That way, I'm ahead of the game.

Brian Brewster: Callie, he looks healthy enough to me. Can we concentrate on the footprints, please?
Daniel Cooper: [regarding the footprints in cement] Whose are they?
Brian Brewster: Only the holiest man that ever lived, that's all!
Daniel Cooper: [in disbelief] Jesus?
Brian Brewster: [to Callie] Hey, Callie. You hear that? The Reverend recognized those feet!
Brian Brewster: [to Daniel Cooper] Atta boy!

Daniel Cooper: [his first sermon] I am Reverend Cooper, and I am your minister. I have to admit I don't have anything prepared. Mostly because I didn't think that anybody would be here to listen. Here you are! I'm truly in awe of God's power.
Daniel Cooper: [steps down the pulpit to get closer to the congregation] Since the moment I got here I have found myself on more than one occasion asking God for help. In fact, I have been so busy needing Him that I couldn't see that there were people who needed me. We all need someone to lean on from time to time. A son needs a father one day, the next the father needs his son. A boy needs a friend. And a reverend needs someone who's a really good swimmer!
Daniel Cooper: [in a sincere tone] When we lean on each other, and ultimately, when we lean on God. We find the strength to face whatever comes our way. Now I realize I truly hadn't opened the doors of this church until this moment. But they are open now.

Daniel Cooper: [referring to Dylan acting as his acolyte without Alex's permission] Told him, just this once.
Alex Stone: Well, just 'cause I don't go to church anymore doesn't mean that he can't.
Daniel Cooper: Thank you. There's always the chance you might find your way back to church.
Alex Stone: [walks away] Oh, how you clergy love to believe in miracles.


"Hope Island: Sailing Under False Colors (#1.9)" (1999)
Delores MacMaster: I don't like being alone.
Daniel Cooper: Alone or lonely?
Delores MacMaster: What's the difference?
Daniel Cooper: Loneliness is a feeling. Being alone is a choice.

Daniel Cooper: So, what about you and Harry. Are you going out again?
Alex Stone: I don't know, I don't know. I mean, he's such a nice guy, he really is...
Daniel Cooper: Alex, they're the words every guy dreads.


"Hope Island: Dear Dear, Bread and Beer, If I Were Rich I Wouldn't Be Here (#1.4)" (1999)
Daniel Cooper: [concerned that Dylan is being bullied in school] What do you mean this kid keeps hitting you? What's his name?
Dylan Stone: [embarrassed] Rebecca.
Daniel Cooper: [smiling] Oh, Rebecca. That's a tricky one, Dylan. Sometimes people have feelings they don't know what to do with.
Dylan Stone: Huh?
Daniel Cooper: [teasing] Maybe she likes you.
Dylan Stone: [shocked] Rebecca? No way!
Daniel Cooper: It's possible.
Dylan Stone: [blushing] I'd rather die!


"Hope Island: In a Bit of a Tight (#1.6)" (1999)
Kevin Mitchum: [reading for an audition] No matter how much lipstick or how much make-up I wear, I'm still that simple girl you met back in Kansas.
Delores MacMaster: [reading in a bad southern accent] And I'm that simple boy.
Kevin Mitchum: How I wish you had whisked me up in your strong arms and carried me off that night.
Delores MacMaster: [in an even worse southern accent] I was a fool. I let my macho ego get in the way.
Daniel Cooper: [stunned at the awful reading of the wrong parts] I'd like you to read the scenes again. Kevin, you read the part of Rex. And, Delores, you read the part of Lola.


"Hope Island: A Sailor Who's Lost His Leg Doesn't Miss His Boot (#1.15)" (2000)
Marcus Griffith: [sadly] I guess, it's time for me to move on. Start building a new life.
Daniel Cooper: Haven't you started already? You've got a job, friends, family. It's all here if you want it.
Marcus Griffith: I don't think this is the right place for me.
Daniel Cooper: [laughs softly] I said the same thing when I first got here. I was surprised how fast this place starts to feel like home.


"Hope Island: It Blew So Hard It Took Two Men to Hold One Man's Hair On (#1.21)" (2000)
Daniel Cooper: [practicing a toast for the wedding] Love is a game that two can play and both can win.
Dylan Stone: Who wrote that one?
Daniel Cooper: [embarrassed] Eva Gabor.
Dylan Stone: She's a lot better writer than that Shakespeare guy.


"Hope Island: From Stem to Stern (#1.8)" (1999)
Nub Flanders: If I die, I want to be buried with a fork in my hand.
Daniel Cooper: Why a fork?
Nub Flanders: Because, when I was a kid, my family would have dinner together. And when my mother cleared the dishes, if she told me to hang onto my fork, I knew it was because there was something better coming afterwards like angel food cake or rhubarb pie.
