Quotes

[in a hustler bar filled with older men]
Justin: Look at all these old guys.
Brian: Sad, isn't it?
Justin: Yeah. Some of them are even older than you are. But I guess at their age if you want it, you gotta pay for it.
Brian: Another reason to die young.
Justin: Or to accept the fact that youth and beauty are fleeting. That time will inevitably leave its mark, and that we should accept our mortality with grace and dignity.

Episode #3.12
7 May 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A great episode. I really like the story of the dumpster boy and how it is going. It is very interesting. I also love how the episode ended, I am looking forward to see what happens with Hunter after he goes with the suspected cop.

Ted's story is great as well. Awesome acting by everyone. I really liked the conflict between them and Mel and Lindsay. Very well shown how this situation can be complicated among friends, and it is understandable why Mel doesn't want to forgive him right away. She actually wants to see if there will be a change, which in my opinion is the right way to do instead of just forgiving and let him continue sliding down. It is a bit unbelievable how fast Ted became such an addict, but I guess there isn't that much time for a TV show to develop the steps of becoming an addict
