Samantha: (opening voiceover) Did you ever wonder what it would be like if you weren't you anymore? If you were suddenly gone? How would your world react? Whatever you imagined is wrong. There's nothing romantic about death.
Nathan: Well, not to mention wakes and funerals really creep me out. Yeah, for you, it's clowns. For me, it's old dead guys. You know, my mom's grandfather died when I was around Jamie's age. And so my whole family's at the wake, and we're kneeling in front of the casket. And I'm really scared because there's this old dead guy just a few feet away from me. Anyway, my mom's crying, and my dad, he says a couple of words, and then he leans forward, and he kisses the corpse. And now I'm totally freaked out. And then he turns to me, and he says, "Kiss your great grandfather, son."
Haley: He didn't make you?
Nathan: Yeah. It's my dad. Kiss the 100-year-old dead guy in makeup.
Haley: Dan sucks.
Lucas: I feel like I let him down. I asked him to be a good example and a good teammate. And then I go and get suspended?
Skills: Yeah, but you was defending him though.
Lucas: I was failing him. He's got a little brother. He's got parents.
Skills: How does a mother ever breathe again?
Lucas: Quentin was a great kid. He was the leader of this team, and I know that he was your friend. I wish I could take this pain away. I can't, and I'm sorry.
Skills: It's okay to feel angry. It's okay to feel pain. It's even okay to hate the person who did this. But when that anger, and that pain, and that hate becomes too much for you, you come see me, Nate or Luke. Understand? We are your family, and we are going to get through this together.
Nathan: You guys know that Q was working out with me, helping me with my game. And that is how I am going to remember him. Strong, happy, playing the game he loved. I want you all to find your best memories of Q and hold on to them, cause that is where he still lives. And he always will.
Haley: I don't know what to say to them. I'm 22 years old and I'm supposed to make sense of this? I can't.
Nathan: You reached Quentin. You'll reach them too.
Haley: Jamie, he died honey. He can't play anymore. Mommy and Daddy are incredibly sad about it, so it's okay if you are sad too. But I know that he loved you very much, and I know that you are going to miss him, but we are really going to miss him too.
Jamie: But what about his cape?
Haley: Jamie, honey. Listen to me.
Jamie: He's going to like it. You'll see.
Samantha: (closing voiceover) Quentin Fields was a basketball player. He was also a son. A brother. Somebody's teammate. And somebody's friend. I never knew Quentin Fields and I guess now I never will. Grief is like the ocean; it's deep and dark and bigger than all of us. And pain is like a thief in the night. Quiet. Persistent. Unfair. Diminished by time and faith and love. I didn't know Quentin Fields, but I'm jealous of him, because I see how his absence has affected the people who did know him. So I know he mattered to them. And I know he was loved. People say that Quentin Fields was a great basketball player: graceful, fluid, inspiring. They say on a good night it almost seemed as though he could fly. And now he can.
