Quotes

Jace: This is the first conversation we've had that hasn't ended up being all about me.

Mary Beth: So?

Jace: So... why am I such a selfish jerk?

Mary Beth: Selfish jerk? That's a little harsh.

Jace: No, seriously, Mary Beth... why would you ever wanna hang out with me?

Mary Beth: Because, you don't care that I look like a hideous mutant she-beast.

Jace: [smiles] That's not true.

Mary Beth: How would you know?

[Jace leans over and gently strokes runs his fingers over her face]

Jace: Because somebody like you would have to have a face that matches her heart.

Jace: [smirks] You can call me Daredevil.

Vincent Fly Shue: But how'd you know my hand was there?

Jace: Doesn't it ever tick you off? That when people look at you, the only thing they see is a blind guy?

Mason Wyatt: What? I'm blind? How am I going to get home?

[laughs]

Mason Wyatt: Man, of course, I'm blind. So are you. So what?

Jace: Thanks for your advice?

Mason Wyatt: What do you want me to say to you, huh? Like stay the course, it gets easier. Well guess what man, it *doesn't*! People are going to treat you differently always because you are different.

Jace: Tell me something I don't know.

Mason Wyatt: Okay, okay I will! YOU have been walking around here with a chip on your shoulder a mile high! You might as well have a little blinking light on your shoulder that says "Look at me. Pity me. Poor misunderstood me."... Look why don't you - play your song another way. People listen to the music you make. Play it so that they can see you as you really are.
