Episode Quotes
Rex: When it's just the two of us and he's asking me about my day, making me dinner, trying to talk about sports, being nothing but nice to me... I can't stop thing that... I wish I had her instead of him. What kind of person looks someone int he eye, someone who's trying so hard... and wishes they were dead instead of someone else? Every time he smiles at me, every time he hugs me and says he loves me... I'm--I'm afraid he's going to see that... I didn't choose him. That I want her instead.
Tara: Having those feelings doesn't make you a bad person. But whatever you're feeling, you shouldn't have to keep it to yourself. So it's good that you're telling me.

Vega: Hey, for a minute, you had me wondering if you were making this whole thing up.
Michael: You weren't the only one.

Dr. Evans: The point is, you felt guilty, and to alleviate that guilt, you created a dream where you freed Cooper.
Michael: If that's the case, it didn't work. I don't feel any better about what happened to him.
Dr. Evans: Isn't that interesting? Even when you go so far as to dream a world where everything turns out all right, you're still plagued with guilt. I'd like you to ask yourself something, Detective. Where do you think this inability to forgive yourself comes from?

Rex: If you’re watching this, I’m guessing you’re pretty messed up about what happened. But there’s something I really need to tell you... which as it turns out, I’ve... had a lot of time to think about. I know things haven’t been so easy between us recently... that I haven’t been... communicating. I think it’s maybe because I was afraid of what I might say because of how angry I was... about losing Mom. Mom was... she was really what held all of us together. Without her, I didn’t know what to do. And I think you kind of felt the same way, too. But I want you to know—and this is really important—I don’t blame you for what happened, for her being gone. So please don’t blame yourself.

Michael: So... how did it go?
Hannah: It was hard... until it wasn't. There was just so much love. and i actually felt like he, he was in the room with me. I just kept wishing you were there, so you could know what that feels like.
