M. "Mack" Patrick MacKenzie: Your Dad hit you.

Jason Lochner: You wouldn't understand.

M. "Mack" Patrick MacKenzie: When I was six years old, I was running through the house and I knocked over a lamp and it broke. My Dad beat the hell out of me. He just didn't spank me, he hit me with his fist, game me two black eyes, Jason. I was six years old! When I was 10, I got home from school one day, my Dad hit me in the stomach and I didn't know why. I didn't ask. But I told myself, "Hey he's just blowing off steam, right?" It was hard to say out loud that he abused me. I was wrong! He was wrong! Jason, you don't have to go through your whole life denying it like I did. All you got to do is tell me to take you someplace else, kid. Tell me to take you someplace else. just tell me to take you someplace else.

Jason Lochner: [Jason looks at Mac, for a moment] Take me someplace else.

Anne W. Matheson Sumner: You're only here with Mack now, because I wasn't here when he met you. Now he feels obligated.

Karen Cooper Fairgate MacKenzie: Mack is under no obligations, Anne.

Anne W. Matheson Sumner: The hell he isn't. Admit it. If Mack had to choose between us, he'd never choose you.

Karen Cooper Fairgate MacKenzie: You with your little tract house, your little dead-end street in your little dead-end life with your outdoor barbecue and your "Kiss the Cook" apron. It all makes me sick.

Karen Cooper Fairgate MacKenzie: Anne, I'm gonna get off the phone right now, I think we've said about...

Anne W. Matheson Sumner: You wanna know the truth. I'll tell you the truth. I never intended to die, I intended to make Mack come to his senses. I did it so that Mack could choose between us.

[Mack is shown listening to what Anne is saying]

M. "Mack" Patrick MacKenzie: [later on, at Mack and Karen's house] I never give a gift unless I like it myself and I love hot dogs.

[Mack puts on a "Kiss the Cook" apron]

M. "Mack" Patrick MacKenzie: Especially when they're charcoal barbecued. I'll even put your names in them. You know, Karen, I love our house and listen...I love how quiet it is on our cul-de-sac.

[Karen is speechless and looks at Anne, who has a flabbergasted look on her face]

Laura Avery Sumner: Look, I'm just going away for treatment, that's all.

Gregory Sumner: You're going away to die.

Laura Avery Sumner: It's a very good clinic.

Gregory Sumner: It must be a hell of a place if people go there to die. I want to be there.

Laura Avery Sumner: I wanna be alone. It's my choice.

Gregory Sumner: It's not just your choice.

Laura Avery Sumner: It is my choice.

Gregory Sumner: Will you quit saying that! Your choice, your choice! What the hell am I? Nothing? A zero? I have a choice to you know and I choose to be there. You want me to imagine how you feel? Well, try to imagine how I feel saying when you say that I can't be there.

Paige Matheson: For years, you have lied, cheated and conned people and you gotten away with it, but I'm not gonna let you get away with this.

Paige Matheson: Well, I don't judge things on the Abby scale, and neither does Greg.

Abby Fairgate Cunningham Ewing Sumner: Don't count on it.
