Quotes

Miranda: You want to know how California got it's name? It's not named after some explorer, or king. Nope. Someone made the name up - a writer. He just pulled it out of his imagination in the 16th century, in Spain. He made up this place where there was unlimited gold, and pearls, and beautiful fierce women who wore gold armor, and rode wild beasts. And he called it California. It's true. It was a best seller back then. Charlie told me that. He said I could like it up if I didn't believe him. But I didn't need to.

Miranda: [first lines - narration] Technically what happened wasn't my fault. I'm a minor, I'm not responsible for my actions. Technically.

[alarm sounds, everyone runs]

Miranda: But these things should be taken on a case-by-case basis. In our case, I've always been the responsible party. Someone had to look out for him.

Miranda: When my father moved away, I lived alone in our house. Which was not exactly normal, but at least I had a routine. Before, when he was home, I could never exactly get comfortable, because it always felt like something was about to happen.

Miranda: They searched all night, but they never did find Charlie's body. One of the cops asked me why Charlie jumped back into the hole. I told them it was where Charlie wanted to go. It was where he wanted to go all along. The cop looked at me like I was crazy, and stopped asking questions. What I didn't tell them was that if Charlie hadn't of tied me up, I probably would have followed him.
